The Movies

Kaphal – Wild Berries

kaphal film posterMakar and Kamru live in a small village in Garhwal. All the men in the village work in the city. Makar’s friends’ fathers visit the village regularly, with gifts for the family. But Makar and Kamru have not seen their father for 5 years. When he does come home, Makar and Kamru find that not only has he not brought them any gifts, he scolds them regularly, and disciplines them too much.

Makar’s friends, Bupi and Pusu convince him that his father may be an imposter. They plan to get rid of their father, through a magic potion from a witch in the forest, Pagli Dadi (Mad Granny). But instead they meet Pagli Dadi’s granddaughter, Ghungra who takes them for a merry ride.

On the way, the boys learn many lessons, including that people are not always what they seem, and magic may work in unpredictable ways.

Gopi Gawaiya Baja Bajaiya

gopibahgaanimationGoopi & Bagha are two wise fools, one lives to sing and the other to play the drum. Despite their acute ineptness, their passion for music knows no bounds.

When the villagers cannot bear to listen to them anymore, both are banished to the same forest. Here, Goopi & Bagha encounter each other and their fates become entwined for life. A strong and immediate bond is forged by the two hapless souls, both in search of connoisseurs of their musical craft.

They sing and play together to celebrate their newfound friendship only to be surrounded by melancholic ghosts who they manage to enchant with their peculiar musical talent. As a gift, they acquire four boons from the king of ghosts, using these they can always be well fed, transport themselves anywhere in an instant and mesmerize anyone with their music, albeit only together and in ‘jugalbandi’. One boon is still owed to them, this would be granted by the ghost king when they need to use it. And thus begins the extraordinary adventure of Goopi & Bagha.
