The story of one house in three different eras. Where 50 years ago it was divided between a school and an apartment, in which a young boy struggles with the pressures of pre-pubescent school life, coupled with being compelled to share a tiny room with his paralysed, disconsolate grandfather. Who in turn has devious plans for the child's 12th birthday which happens to fall on a leap year. The same building 20 years later becomes home to a brothel, where a young unexploited concubine is dealing with her self-proclaimed "first" client who has a strange inability to fulfil his physical desire unless obligated to the duress of a transaction to do so. Now, 30 years later these same walls surround a sublime home which belongs to a soul-stirring 75 year old couple who love, laugh and dance together. They whisper the secrets of time forgone and seemed to have overcome the undying need for love and escape which seems to have plagued the inhabitants of this house in the past.

Promising indian film of the era!
'Teen Aur Aadha' which means three and half in english is an indian film written and directed by Dar Gai and produced by veteran director Anurag Kashyap. The film has three different stories with different plots revolving around an old building which served as a school,a brothel and an old couple's home. The main protagonist of the film is the ever present walls of the building that has witnessed different stories.A notable fact is that all stories are named after Hindu Gods.The first story is 'yamraj'-The god of death. The story is build up with an wonderfully scripted conversation between a paralyzed old man waiting for death and his grandson Raj a school going kid of 12. The second story 'natraj'-the god of dance is the story of an temporary fanatic relationship build by awakard silence and gestures between Natraj played by Jim Sarbh and Sulekha a prostitute.The powerful acting of Jim would surely keep the viewer glued to the screen.Joya Hussein as Sulekha is apt companion to Jim.The third and the final story
'kamraj'-the god of love.This is the story of a man of 70 played by M.K.Raina and his rekindled love for his wife.the film has an extensive and apt use of colors depicting age and mood of the story. Natraj standing in front of the dimly lit ally with colourful balloons in hand is eye catching and reveals a deep meaning. There is a very short concluding story 'half god' where we fine the house is getting painted getting itself ready to witness new people and new stories.Music by Vivienne Mort is of average level,however,choice of Music is justified and soothe the ears leaving viewers in solidity. Thus a dramatic thought-provoking memorable watch.
