Happiness is relative. Money certainly can't buy it. So what is happiness? 'TRIMURTI' presents a solution to this mystery in the traditional Indian way.It is the story of a mother, who without money tries to give happiness to her sons, just as Mother India manages to keep her sons happy even though she herself is stepped in poverty. This then is the theme of 'TRIMURTI'.Vijay , Nandu and Bhola, the three brothers who are the 'TRIMURTI' of the picture, try to find contentment in life by being footless and free.The soaring unemployment has compelled them to ask society whether it owes them a living, and add to their problems, they fall in love with the daughters of rich men.But wealth has its own wicked ways of becoming a barrier to happiness, and this is what happens. One of the three brothers happens to be the long lost son of the rich man whose daughter is in love with the eldest brother.Events take interesting twist again! The father of the other two girls is a rich man with a secret, and he wants the long lost boy to marry one of his daughters. In the vast jumble the poor mother holds the thread of ethics together and tries her hand at unr**elling the problems that face all of them.Matters soon come to a head as the voice of the poor is raised in anguish against the powerful language of money. But who cares?
