Teen Thay Bhai - Movie Review

Three brothers, many yawns!

Teen Thay Bhai - Movie Review
The ApunKaChoice movie review of Teen Thay Bhai. Bad comedies aren’t the exclusive preserve of Bollywood big shots with gummy smiles or dopey eyes. Even the best of actors with not so formidable fan base but incredible talent to vouch for, can flounder -- and flounder big time -- if saddled with a script full of silly juvenilia and fart jokes in the name of humour. Precisely the case with Teen Thay Bhai, starring the powerhouse performers Om Puri, Deepak Dobriyal and Shreyas Talpade as three estranged brothers Chixie, Happy and Fancy respectively.

The trio can’t stand each other but are made to spend time together in a run-down, snowed-out cottage in Kashmir because of a clause in their grandfather’s will. Eager to inherit the millions, the teen bhai grudgingly chum up for the final meeting under the watchful eye of the framed portrait of their late grandfather.

A lot of campiness, crass jokes and flatulence precede the plot digression into a sweet romantic track between Dobriyal and Ragini Khanna, the TV actress looking fetching as a village belle. The plot gets further crowded and convoluted with junkie blondes, bumbling cops and canines before it heads to a scrambled climax.

First-time director Mrigdeep Singh Lamba may have had a good story idea that sounded terrific in a single-line narration, but stretched onto a full-length script, it turns out tragically humdrum because the director lacks the art of cracking humour.

The audiences are expected to laugh at over-the-top antics and tomfoolery of the characters even as you see the three superb acting talents going down the plughole. Om Puri, playing a tetchy, flatulent Punjabi is made to holler for most part of his role, while Deepak Dobriyal, playing an eccentric dentist, does rise above the threadbare script to give a few moments of jollity. Shreyas Talpade, playing an aspiring actor, comes up with a strictly creditable act.

All in all, a dull comedy.
