Movie Review: Teen Thay Bhai (2011)
Have a few questions to ask…
The first question is for Mr. Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra. Pray, what prompted you to green-light the screenplay of TEEN THAY BHAI? Okay, I am sure, you got fascinated by a fascinating concept [what an idea, sirji], but didn’t you realize that the screenplay was going nowhere, on paper itself?
The second question is for the three actors – Deepak Dobriyal, Shreyas Talpade and Mr. Om Puri specifically, whom I hold in very high esteem. What was narrated to you [before you signed on the dotted line] and what comes across on screen – is it the same movie? If the answer is in the affirmative, I would like to pose another question to each one of you: What prompted you to say ‘Yes’ to this project? Credible names backing it? Or, well, spare dates? It can’t be the script, right? Or is it?
Chixie (Om Puri), Happy (Deepak Dobriyal) and Fancy Singh (Shreyas Talpade) are the three oddball brothers who would love to be left alone, having nothing to do with each other. But their grandfather’s will forces them to spend time together, if they want to inherit his millions. Can the mismatched trio spend quality time with each other and re-discover shredded family ties in a desolate and decrepit bungalow in snow clad Kashmir?
