When a film has actors like Amitabh Bachchan, Vidya Balan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui, there is no second thought about their performances. The trio shines in their roles.
There are a few scenes, where Amitabh Bachchan's helplessness and body language have come out on the screen so nicely, that you can easily relate to his character and feel his pain deep inside your heart!
Nawazuddin too, leaves no stone unturned in impressing us with his amazing talent and he makes a great impact with his overall performance. However, Vidya has less screen space when compared to Amitabh & Nawazuddin but she did full justice to her role.
Teen is surely one of those dishes, which has yummy ingredients but is not well prepared by the chef! And we can see that chef in Director Ribhu Dasgupta!
If you are expecting a nail-biting thriller from Teen, then surely this one is not for you! But you can surely give it a shot to witness the classic acting of Mr Bachchan! We give an extra half star to Amitabh Bachchan's arresting performance!
The film's director Ribhu Dasgupta, whose last film was the forgettable MICHAEL, returns with the whodunit thriller TE3N. While the promos of the film were enticing and thrilling, the sad part is that the same cannot be said about the film in totality. Right from the first scene, the film's oscillation between the past and the present leaves the viewers a bit confused.
As for the performances, TE3N boasts of three powerhouse performers in the form of Amitabh Bachchan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Vidya Balan.
On the whole, TE3N, despite being a whodunit thriller, suffers extremely because of its slow pace and weak screenplay. At the box-office it will be unable to connect with its target audience.
Some filmy battles are won simply by achieving the perfect casting coup. Team Te3n definitely knows how to make a virtue of this. After all, it has Amitabh Bachchan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Vidya Balan in the thick of things.
However, we can’t help but wish that instead of simply basking in this triumph, if producer Sujoy Ghosh and director Ribhu Dasgupta had only worked harder on making the screenplay taut and effectively evocative, the result could have been magical!
But go for Te3n to witness the beauty of Amitabh Bachchan. He alone is reason enough! Really!
