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

Obsession can be innocent, dramatic as well as mysterious
30 June 2015 | by abhidarockerSee all my reviews

This is a movie about the obsession that can be created by love. This love can be as innocent as a child, as dramatic as the husband of an unfaithful wife or as mysterious as a person who can go to any extent to achieve the woman of his desire. The best part of the movie is that it tells three (Teen) stories (Kahon) which took place in three different times. And the beauty is that each one of them is shot based on the time when those stories were taking places. The way of shooting a film has evolved from time to time and this change can be observed as we move on from one story to another. Amazing concept which gives you the feeling of traveling through time. My personal favorite is the Third one which was the story from the Director himself, but I will always admit the depth of obsession can only be felt through the second story where a betrayed husband is obsessed with the lover of his unfaithful wife.
