Movie Info

A charming children's film with adult references to politics and human nature, this story takes up where Adventures of Goodpy and Bagha left off. Two men were able to marry local princesses because of a pair of magic shoes they acquired. But they are getting a little restless with the good life and when they travel to another kingdom on a state visit, they are spurred into action. The king of that region owns fabulous diamond mines, and he is mercilessly exploiting the miners and others in his kingdom, keeping them fooled about their lives with heavy-duty propaganda. As might be expected, a lot of singing and dancing (much of the songs composed by Ray) accompany the story as the two men set out to change the king and his unethical ways.

Critic Reviews for Hirok Rajar Deshe

All Critics (1)

It's a competently made fairy-tale film, but it's the kind of film perhaps any good director could have made and did not need a great one.
