Early lifeEdit

Haldar fell in love with films while still in school. He followed film news and got to know about Film and Television Institute of India through interviews given by Mithun Chakraborty and Shatrughan Sinha. Haldar told in an interview with The Telegraph (Calcutta) that a Zenith camera taught him how to look at things differently and black-and-white photography helped him to understand the tonal separation. In 1995–96, Halder spent a month watching films at Max Mueller Bhavan. They celebrated 100 years of cinema screening films from the silent era to the present. At FTII, he came in touch with photographer Hari Nair. He took Halder as an assistant while shooting Shool; that was when he felt drawn to the mainstream genre.
