It opened in Russia on March 15, 2006. It is the second film in Melnitsa's "3 bogatyrs" series (the first was Alyosha Popovich and Tugarin Zmey).

The film opened at #2 in the box office in Russia and the CIS, and grossed around $3,500,000.[1]


The plot is based on the mythology surrounding the title characters: Dobrynya Nikitich and Zmey Gorynych. The film contains many elements of parody and jokes about The Matrix, Star Wars, The Meeting Place Cannot Be Changed, Seventeen Moments of Spring and other famous movies.

Prince Vladimir's niece, Zabava, is kidnapped. Dobrynya Nikitich and his young apprentice, Yelisey, go to find her, discovering betrayal and treachery where least expected.
