3 Deewarein


Nagesh Kukunoor's

"Teen Diwarein"

3 Deewarein is the saga of three prisoners, Jaggu, a lawyer who seeks solace in the verses of his poetry, poetry that is the essence of his being. Nagya, a man aggrieved with the world, and Ishaan, a natural charmer, for whom life means sheer freedom. The three develop a special bond in prison; becoming friends for the uncertain span of time that fate holds for them. Mohan is the prison warden, who strongly believes in holistic reformation and perceives prisons as home to prisoners and not as cages for animals.

Enter Chandrika, a documentary filmmaker wanting to make a film on these three convicts. As the documentary progresses, a bond begins to evolve between Chandrika and the three men... And with this bond unfolds an inexplicable series of events, that leads to an edge of the seat finale… What is it that unfolds? Is the question that is answered in this bittersweet saga about friendship, hope and survival in a world within a world…
