Movie Synopsis:

Teen Thay Bhai is a Hindi comedy movie directed by Mrighdeep Lamba, produced by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra Productions, Written by Mehul Suri and Gautam Mehra. The film stars Om Puri, Shreyas Talpade, Deepak Dobriyal, Ragini Khanna and Yograj Singh. The music is composed by Ranjit Barot and Sukhwinder Singh.

Three down-on-luck and out-of-money brothers are summoned to the death of their grandfather. With nothing in common, except their undying hate for each other, the funeral turns out to be a reunion from hell. After paying their final respects, the brothers can't wait to get as far away from each other as possible, even if it means returning back to their miserable lives.

But wait, there is a will. The deceased grandfather left them an inheritance. One hundred acres of lush sloping hills deep in the heart of the Himachal. It's worth a bounty and the brothers feel their sorrows fly away. But as most tales go, this one too has a twist. A clause in
the will.

The brothers will get the million-dollar estate only after completing a series of bizarre clauses
set forth by their eccentric grandfather. They will have to spend an entire night at an abandoned cabin on the estate, alone with the two other people they hate the most their brothers. And their dead grandfather's ashes for company.

It gets worse. The brothers are required to repeat this ritual every year for the next three years.

The story then fast-forwards to the third and final year. It's been a heavy winter and the cabin is snowed-out. It's the night of the reunion and the brothers arrive one by one at the cabin. Things immediately start heating up. Being the last year of their forced misery, all three are in a hurry to get over with the 'blasted reunion' and move on.

But the night is far from over. Between the three brothers getting horribly drunk, almost killing one another and raking out shameful skeletons from the family chest, the night is amusingly eventful.

And then day breaks on bright new note. A compromising truce is reached on account of the good fortune coming their way. But with fortune comes foolishness. And after three years of waiting, planning and preparing, they came to the final battle without the one thing needed most - Food. Miles away from civilisation with no hope of survival and facing a life and death situation tempers flare and a repeat of the previous night's hilarious performance is about to begin.

The plot thickens with the entry of a rodent-like man through the chimney. The brothers are thrown into one situation after another, as they comically and collectively, fight their way out. And just when they see their fantasies coming to life with the arrival of a bunch of beautiful strangers, their lives are turned upside down by a moronic police inspector. Dreams are shattered though the brothers realize that blood after all, is thicker than water. But it is a tad too late!

Will this be the end of the road?


Movie Review:

Teen Thay Bhai has been called a ‘desi comedy’ by the people behind it and even if you don’t really fathom just what they mean by this, you might laugh a couple of times while watching it. There is nothing wrong in giving loud characters louder lines and stupid situations stupider jokes but then you can only force your viewer so much to enjoy a comedy in which the writer and the actors seem to get most of the jokes.

As the title suggests Teen Thay Bhai is about three brothers--Chixie Gill (Om Puri), Happy Gill (Deepak Dobriyal) and Fancy Gill (Shreyas Talpade) and how they have to behave and tolerate each other for three years after the death of their authoritarian grandfather (Yograj Singh) in order to get their share of his property. Elder Gill doesn’t like the idea of anyone thinking for themselves and his is the final word. Tired of the grandfather’s rigid ways, Chixie walks out on his younger brothers to make a life in the city; years later a freak accident forces Happy to leave the village and his love Gurleen (Ragini Khanna) behind forever. The grandfather’s death gets the three brothers together and while fulfilling the clauses in the will the three discover the love they had for one another.

What’s good about Teen Thay Bhai has got precious little to do with the film--the setting, the production design and a pretty decent Deepak Dobriyal. The drama unfolds in a remote hill cottage adding some character to the film just like the great detailing in the production design which makes the locations come alive but the screenplay is pretty lackluster. There are many scenes in the film that take too long in playing out; the set up takes forever and one ends up guessing the punch line as most of the jokes are predictable. Dobriyal and his nuanced performance makes his small town Happy very real and completely believable but Puri is mostly loud without the payoff. Talpade’s English bungling Fancy is passable at places but on the whole is too cheesy. Then there are the supporting characters like Inspector Gabru Bawra whose fascination for nonsensical tools of trade would put Inspector Gadget to shame and the two constables that he moves around with who just snigger on cue and an earthmover that gets more relevant screen time than Ragini Khanna!

Teen Thay Bhai is predictable, loud and often tries too hard to be funny; how many fart jokes do you need in order to make people laugh? Do they still work? It might work if the stars are aligned, it’s that kind of a day and you are in that kind of mood… difficult to get the correct setting but then anything’s possible, right?
