    Teen Thay Bhai rating: 1 out of 10(Divya Solgama wrote on 15 Apr 2011)

    What happens when a film has creative/Talented people like Rakesh Omprakash Mehra, Gulzar, Ashok Mehta, Om Puri, Deepak Dobriyal, Shreyas Talpade, etc in its credits? Well the answer is simple; one does expect a good film watching all these names in its credits. The movie loving audience has matured today and does not mind watching a non star cast film or a small budget film, if the films promos or marketing or the content or the credits appeal them. There have been numerous examples in the past where the audience has accepted such films. So Teen Thay Bhai despite of being a Small budget, non starrer film has decent chances to fare good on the box office. But as they saw if you add too much of sugar in a dish, there are chances of that dish turning bitter. So let’s find out whether this Brotherhood saga turns sweet or leave us with bitter taste?

    “Teen Thay Bhai” is story of three brothers Chixie Gill {Om Puri} a shop keeper, Happy Gill {Deepak Dobriyal} a dentist, Fancy Gill {Shreyas Talpade} a struggling actor in Punjabi films. All three brothers lead their miserable life until one day they come to know that their grandfather has passed away. After the funeral of their Dadaji {Yograj Singh}, they come to know that he has inherited them with lots of property and to claim it they have to meet at a decided place every year for three years along with his ashes. The brothers somehow manage to pull the first two years, but the third and the last year starts with a snow storm and a night full of excitement. Things go upside down and what happens next is all the film about.

    Story is simple and one liner. Such films need good support from the screenplay writer and the dialogs writer. Sadly both these departments were weak and once can say at times missing. The movie starts with some good scenes like all three brothers at the lawyers eco-friendly office, Discussion between Om Puri and Deepak while waiting for Shreyas, Punjabi Ramayana by Dadaji, Shreyas being questioned for the ashes and few more. But there is nothing extra ordinary about these scenes. But if we compare with all the other scenes in the film, these scenes automatically become extra ordinary. The film boost of some horrible scenes like The whole trespassers angle, The Hippies track, The cops nabbing three brothers and later torturing them with Home TV Shopping products, The climax fight scene with good usage of House breaking machine, with some more silliness towards the end {Inc a Punjabi Song}. There was so much of hamming in the scenes by almost all the actors and the one liner plot was stretched to that extent that it had become so weak and pale. Ashok Mehta’s cinematography was not that great to match up with the talent this ace camera man has.

    Music is not bad, but the when I read the name of Gulzar in the lyrics writer, wondered what made him writer these lyrics. The title track “Teen They Bhai-Why Why Why” was decent. Rests were passable.

    Debutant director Mrighdeep Lamba, who had assisted in films like bluffmaster failed to impress with his creative skills. Many times in the film I felt that I was watching a masala loud drama and not a film. The first half has been treated with such a slow pace and the director’s touch was nowhere to be found. The second half scored over the first half giving us more boredom and illogical scenes. I guess the director should had added the laughter track in the film as he forgot to tell us where to laugh or where to clap. Or maybe he had forgotten to add all those elements in the film.

    Om Puri is good in some scenes, but most of the times he is loud and irritating. Seems like he has been mastering in this field. Deepak Dobriyal was the most decent in the whole film, but surely among his worst performance. Shreyas was irritating and stupid. Ragini Khanna was hardly there. The actor who played the inspector was the worst of the lot. Loved Yograj Singh in the Punjabi Ramayana.

    So bol meri ‘Filmi Khopdi’ is film mein kitna hai dum ?

    Dum? Dum? Dum? Well in the film Om Puri keeps on farting and says ‘Mujhe Gas Ho Gaya Hai’. Well I guess that’s what the film was all about- Just plain Gas and nothing else. All the creative brains made a mess of this film. The second half of this film is terrible, that even the few couples [the only audience this film had] who were enjoying their movie in the corner seats too left the cinema hall. I was left behind watching the film and after the end of the film I just wanted to ask the makers that “Why? Why? Why? On the earth did you make this film?”
