Teen Patti critic reviews & ratings

 

The earth provides enough to satisfy every man's need, but not every man's greed. That's so true! Let's face it, money is the root of all evil. When we have more, it is never enough. This is exactly what Leena Yadav's TEEN PATTI tells you. TEEN PATTI is not only about gambling on table, but all those gambles that we take in our life. Bearing an uncanny resemblance to the Hollywood film 21, TEEN PATTI is akin to a roller coaster ride; if there are highsmore

Ready for a razor sharp teaser? Watch Teen Patti. The film is a taut thriller that's not only done with loads of style and attitude, it also showcases a fine ensemble cast of youngsters who represent the edginess of today's youth. And if that's not enough, there's further enticement in the character and currently in-form status of Amitabh Bachchan, who is hell bent on a second, third and fourth coming. After the mesmerising Auro in Paa, Amitabh's eccentric mathematical wizardmore

In 2010, `Teen Patti’ gives us a bunch of BIT ( this institute, unlike the former, is fictional) students trained to be card sharps cleaning up at sleazy Mumbai gambling dens. Yadav, in her second outing after `Shabd’, puts in Bollywood flavour into her borrowed storyline by adding in starry cameos, a sultry song with a siren flashing the barest backmore

Teen Patti is about a genius professor of mathematics who makes a life-altering discovery about the theory of probability and randomness. I don't know much about math but I can safely say that in all probability you will not enjoy this film. Teen Patti is a train-wreck of a movie. It's incoherent, lengthy and worst of all, agonisingly pretentious. Director Leena Yadav takes the kernel of the story from the 2008 Hollywood film 21, about an MIT professormore
