Teen Devian

Teen Devian is a 1965 Bollywood film directed by Amarjeet, starring Dev Anand. Filmed mostly in black and white, with some colour scenes, the movie tells the story of a poet who falls in love with three different women. It is inspired by writer D.H. Lawrence's works. The music was composed by S. D. Burman, whose son Rahul Dev Burman composed the English version of this film titled "Oh Boy and Three Girls", but the print was never released.


Teen Devian starts off to a commentary by Ameen Sayani, as the camera moves through Calcutta's streets, the pretty Nanda (Nanda) finds herself, as she sees it, being followed. The man, Dev Dutt Anand (Dev Anand) has been sitting in the bus beside her, and has bought a ticket for Dalhousie (after she's bought one) and has now even followed her into the boarding house where she lives. At this point, Nanda loses her temper and yells at Dev, threatening to call the police. Instead, her shouting attracts the attention of the boarding house's owners, Mr Pinto (Harindranath Chattopadhyay) and his wife (Ruby Myers). Mr. and Mrs. Pinto assure Nanda that she's misunderstood, this Dev being their new lodger. Nanda is sheepish and embarrassed. But Dev forgives her readily, with a remark quite apparently aimed at her, though he's in his room and she's in hers, watching each other only through a gap.
