Review: Om Puri starrer ‘Teen Thay Bhai’ is a crazy laugh riot
What happens when Om Puri, Shreyas Talpade and Deepal Dobriyal come together and try their hands at comedy? It’s one big madcap adventure!
Starring Om Puri as Chixie, Shreyas Talpade as Fancy Singh and Deepak Dobriyal as Happy, Mrighdeep Singh Lamba’s ‘Teen Thay Bhai’ is a big screwball comedy, which revolves around three eccentric brothers, who are forced to mend their differences if they want to inherit their grandfather’s property. With no option left, Chixie, Fancy and Happy are forced to spend time together and rediscover long lost family ties in a dilapidated bungalow in Kashmir.
Produced by Rakesysh Mehra, ‘Teen Thay Bhai’ is a fun filled film, which could have been made more entertaining, courtesy loose editing, which holds back the film from realizing its true potential.
Watch out for the theatricals of Om Puri as a loud, brash and egoistic Punjabi businessman, quack dentist Deepak Dobriyal, whose strange obsession with ironed clothes costs him the love of his life, Ragini Khanna - a buxom village girl, who doesn’t even bat an eyelid when it comes to telling barefaced lie. Last but not the least, Shreyas Talpade, a wannabe actor, who is at his quixotic best.
‘Teen Thay Bhai’ is quite hilarious when the three brothers frantically try to rub each other the wrong way. However, lack of consistency takes away the much need humour from the film.
Do not miss Yuvraj Singh’s dad Yograj Singh, who makes his debut in Bollywood as angry grandfather in ‘Teen Thay Bhai’.
Ratings: Two cheers for this one!
