In “Tiner Talwar”, Utpal Datta depicts 19th century Calcutta (now Kolkata) when the wealthy dominated exponents of theatre and propelled competition between established directors.
This ‘play within a play’ subtly mocks the so-called ‘Babu-culture’ and significantly upholds the struggles of the lowly paid performers.
The story follows a troupe called ‘Bengal Opera’ and its members. Beni Madhab was the chief of the troupe, while veteran actress Bashundhara nurtured maternal feelings for all.
Young talents like Priyonath and Moina were also important members with their own dreams.
