Storyline

Teenkahon (Three Obsessions) is a triptych film in Bengali by debutant filmmaker Bauddhayan Mukherji. It is a rare international art house film from Bengal which, as a piece of social document, tries to capture the changing face of morality, the degeneration of values, the increasing pollution of the spoken language and the changing social fabric of Bengal through three stories. Spread over a hundred years, the three stories are structured in the manner of the classical Three Act Play with each act (read story) exploring one facet of an obsessive relationship outside the purview of marriage. ACT 1 The first film NABALOK (time period 1920-1954) is shot in black and white. This period piece is the story of an 8-year-old boy's emotional attachment and obsession with a newly married girl. The film opens in Calcutta and then moves to rural Bengal. ACT 2 The second film POST MORTEM (time period 1978) is a technicolor film. It is an ambitious single room drama about two men - the lover and ... Written by Little Lamb Films

Cinema at it's best
18 March 2015 | by Joydeep DasSee all my reviews

Teenkahon consists of 3 stories Nabalok,Post Mortem and Telephone.Cinema as a craft is quite complicated as it involves numerous skill sets to produce the final product.According to me two things make or break a movie (1) the story telling and (2) balancing the numerous skill sets appropriately in the movie. Debutant director Bauddhayan Mukherjee showed his mastery in dealing with both these elements, making Teenkahon a modern day classic.The simplicity with which complex scenarios are presented is a rarity in today's Indian Cinema. Nabalok explores the mind of a child with respect to relationships with women in great depth but in a very polished manner.The director kept his patience with the camera to capture the mood of every scene.One can see the "Ray Influence" in Nabalok,but never at the cost of originality. Post Mortem my favorite of the three is just fascinating as it explores the contradictions within a person in very subtle and unique way using camera,situation and the actors.Popular Bengali actor Sabyasachi Chakrabarty has been unshackled from his typical self and this will remain one of his best or may be the best performance. In the last story Telephone which is incidentally written by the director himself is a typical mystery but presented in a very unique way keeping the audience attentive throughout. Rituporna Sengupta again showed that with a good director she can reach exceptional heights. Asish Vidyarthi who plays the role of a cop and husband to Rituporna combined his facial expressions with great physical acting.

The casting in Teenkahon has been excellent and specially the young boy in Nabalok will live with me for a long time.The only area where Teenkahon could have done better (anyway it is good) is the use of music.

Hoping to see more from Bauddhayan Mukherjee.....
