GGBB is an animated, musical adaptation of Satyajit Ray’s classic Goopy Gyne Bagha Byne. Based on a story by Bengali writer Upendra kishore Raychowdhuri, it’s about two musicians Goopi and Bagha, who are banished from their kingdoms because their music is cacophonic. The banished musicians then play in the jungle and impress the King of Ghosts who grants them many boons.
