A well-acted Bollywood kidnapping thriller offers an intriguing Indian spin on American crime-movie conventions.
The first half proceeds at such a crawl, even the songs sound like somebody's last gasp. Yet Dasgupta's playing a reasonably intricate long game.
It holds your gaze, and sucks you into the chase, only to shy away and go home with bat and ball once you get too close. At best, the film is an honest attempt at being dishonest...
The parallel investigations around which the film's narrative is built, the move back and forth in time confuses rather than add to the viewers' involvement.
The film's ability to maintain the suspense right till the end makes it a must-watch for those who like whodunnits. However, a better pace could have lifted this film a notch higher.
Director Ribhu Dasgupta's second movie is just about as good as taut thrillers can be. There's a directorial control and finesse that make this film engaging and well worth a watch.
Amitabh Bachchan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Vidya Balan play their roles with elan, but a meandering plot proves the film's undoing.
Despite having a lot of things going for it, Te3n doesn't pass the first test of a thriller -- it doesn't keep you on the edge of your seat.
The plot scores high on twists, but is rendered confusing by intercut timelines.
Siddiqui and Balan valiantly try to inject energy into their sketchy characters, but the overall lack of momentum in the screenplay by Suresh Nair and Brijesh Jayarajan eventually gets to them.
TE3N catches you by the neck and keeps you engrossed till the end credits. Amitabh's superlative form is just one of the incentives to watch it.
There are plenty of twists and blind alleys to keep the audience's inner Sherlock occupied.
This movie is cliche, and I give it one and a half stars regardless of what rotten tomatoes may post that I said. This film would have benefited greatly from an editor who cut out ALL flashbacks and ran the film at proper speed, but perhaps that suggests more about what Indian filmmakers THINK American audiences expect in order to gain catharsis. If this is true, may India have mercy on our cinemas. We are in for schmaltz on an epic scale. Finally, the title makes absolutely z3ro sense.
