Three Legged Horse (Teen Paayancha Ghoda)
Genre: Fiction • 2h 3m • 2022
At the turn of the millennium, three real-life incidents shuddered the city of Pune in India. A group of rich kids in the city were caught in a marksheet forgery scam. A young call-centre employee was raped in a cab, in broad daylight. A mentally unstable driver drove his bus over 20 people on a busy road, in a fit of madness. Three Legged Horse (Teen Paayancha Ghoda) is a coming-of-age drama of three teenagers set against the backdrop of these real incidents. A cynical Adnan, a dreamy Chandrika, and a reticent Rathore come together to form a beautiful friendship and to learn that coming of age is not a smooth run, but a three-legged race.
