Teen Yari Katha releases after 6 years of Censor trauma

MUMBAI: Breaking away from the six-year hitch of not being able to see the light of the day, Prosenjit’s Bengali film Teen Yari Katha (tale of three friends) was released recently.


The film is about three young friends who belong to the suburban middle-class. One plies an auto-rickshaw, one supplies newspapers and so on with similar angst and sexual desires that bond youngsters of their age.


Though the film was screened at the Kolkata Film Festival in 2007 followed by its screening in the competition section of the Osian Film Festival in Delhi in 2009, it could not release because the Censor Board held up its release for its objectionable dialogue filled with slang and brazen sexual innuendos. They refused to pass it even after watching it several times and the directors refused to agree to the cuts suggested by the CBFC.


"We have released 35 prints initially for screening across Kolkata and Bengal because this is a film that does not cater to the rural-urban divide and will appeal to every adult viewer," said joint directors Sudeshna Roy and Abhijit Guha.


To ascertain that the film doesn’t look dated, the director duo got the colour correction of every single frame done once again. "The film deals with a subject that was far ahead of its time, so in a way perhaps, this six-year delay will prove to be a boon for the film at the box-office," added Roy.


The film has Parambrato Chatterjee, Saswata Chatterjee ( both Kahaani fame) and Rudraneel in pivotal roles.
