Konkona Sen Sharma,
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

Starved of watching Bengali films on big screen in Dubai, Abhijaan 2015 - the Bengali Film festival in Dubai was such a great opportunity for movie lovers to watch Bengali films... and that too such great films like TeenKahon. What a stellar movie Teenkahon is... absolute stunning ending... the treatment is also very different. While the first act reminded us of Apu in Pather Panchali and it was very evident that Ray had a huge cinematographic influence on the director. The less we discuss the third act, the better it is for those who still haven't seen the movie. Incredible climax. Cannot give a 10 out of 10 only because I didn't get the second act so much, although Sabyasachi has never given such a stupendous performance in any of his movies. Rituparna has evolved so much since her early days - she even acts through her silence. Ashish Vidyarthi has given a kick-ass performance as well. 3 different stories, different treatment - a whiff of fresh air in Indian cinema alibi this Bengali film. Given a chance for a remake, I would be keeping the elements of rain and child as a common thread in all the three acts.
Good wishes to both Buddy and Mona and the entire think tank of Lamb Little... this is just the beginning of story telling for you... your journey begins only now!
