This film completes the Goopy and Bagha trilogy originally envisioned by Ray. Sandip Ray directed the movie based on his father's stories. The film deals with Goopy and Bagha's concerns over their advancing age. Bored with their lives as kings of Shundi, our heroes leave their ministers in charge and visit Anandapur for a magic contest. They encounter an evil, greedy man, Acharya, who is a disciple of a witch doctor. He attempts to bribe Goopy and Bagha with the promise of eternal youth if they will steal gems for him. They are forced to agree when he captures and enslaves the young boys of the village. Goopy and Bagha consult with the King of Ghosts, and eventually defeat Acharya with the help of a young boy with special powers.
