Movie Review: Tere Mere Phere (2011)
Shaadi ka laddoo — jo khaye, woh pachtaaye. Jo na khaaye, woh bhi pachtaaye. Well, that’s an age-old adage that crops up every time people discuss marriage. Deepa Sahi’s TERE MERE PHERE is a comical take on the contemporary idea of love and marriage. The film looks at two couples — one married, another unmarried — and how lots of confusion ensues in their lives, before they ‘live happily thereafter’.
Deepa has a humorous way of looking at some of the most serious situations in life and that’s what makes this comedy unique. Imagine doing a film for the first time, a comedy film, and a road film that too! She ought to be praised for the effort. Though Deepa has made a sincere effort to tell a story that has its share of fun moments, a number of sequences in the movie seem so far-fetched that they are too difficult to absorb at times and that, frankly, is a downer.
