And then appends after a pause, “...which adults too can watch.” The director is talking about the film, Goopy Gyne Bagha Byne, that was directed by his father, Satyajit Ray. That Goopy Gyne Bagha Byne is about two tone-deaf musicians, Goopy and Bagha, is well known.

Happy 50th birthday Goopy Gyne Bagha Byne.
