Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's Teen Thay Bhai, is a smart comedy and a different film that could have worked greater wonders, had the script and the screenplay delivered some promise. However, the film can boast of great performances and peppy music with funky lyrics. Unfortunately, there is only so much the rest of the aspects of a film can do when the pillar itself "the story" lacks a strong foundation.
Teen Thay Bhai is the story of three defaming, detesting, disdaining brothers Chixie (Om Puri), Happy (Deepak Dobriyal), and Fancy Gill (Shreyas Talpade) who are forced to stay together for one day, every year for three years, because of their grandfather's strange will. The brothers live at an estranged property over an alienated hill in Himachal Pradesh. The siblings can't stand one another and nearly end up killing each other in one day, but towards the end, they accept their love for each other and even inherit the millions left by their grandfather.
The film starts with a promising note with the introduction of the three Gill brothers. However, an interesting start is met with a very boring story and slow pace, with dialogues which fail to generate humour, except for a few punches. On a positive note, the lead actors of the film have done a marvellous job. Shreyas Talpade is at his comic best. Om Puri is a master at his craft and the icing on the cake is Deepak Dobriyal. Ragini Khanna, who makes her Bollywood debut, is naturally talented and performs well.
Mrigdeep Singh Lamba, in his directorial debut, portrays immense potential. The music is peppy with a very hummable title song by Daler Mehendi. All in all, worth watching just once... an interesting film that wasn't done appropriate justice to!
