Detailed Cast and Crew
Teen Murti, a film based on a story/script/music composed by late Shri Tapan Sinha who could not shoot the film himself due to his deteriorating health.
Tapan Sinhas films attracted me ever since my childhood and I take delight to say that in my career of film-making he is a major influence. In each of my film I have also tried to address relevant social issues. May be this too, is an influence of Tapan Sinha.His technique of film-making, particularly his narrative style I have tried to adopt in many of my films.
