When one thinks of films involving brothers, Manmohan Desai's AMAR AKBAR ANTHONY starring Vinod Khanna, Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor instantly comes to mind. Now we have another film of three brothers, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's TEEN THAY BHAI. However, it has nothing to do with AMAR AKBAR ANTHONY apart from being a story of three brothers.

Chixie (Om Puri), Happy (Deepak Dobriyal) and Fancy Singh (Shreyas Talpade) are brothers who simply can't stand each other. They battle the adverse weather conditions to reach a dilapidated bungalow in Himachal Pradesh. Why? Because according to a clause in their deceased grandfather's (Yograj Singh) will, they have to be at the bungalow once every year, for three years, to inherit his wealth. Will they keep their personal differences aside to get the moolah, is what follows.

Some films are bad, some are boring and some are both - bad and boring. TEEN THAY BHAI falls in the third category. Nothing goes in favour of the film, which is poorly scripted and badly edited. The first half is a complete drag, in which the story hardly moves. You just have some moronic, supposed to be funny fights between the brothers. The introduction of a new character just before the intermission, gives some hope of the narrative getting better. But it doesn't. Some random songs and more fight scenes follow. The Priyadarshan type climax having several characters is anything but funny.

Some of the worst scenes include the deplorable elongated scene in which Fancy mourns the death of his dog or when a police officer is torturing the brothers using mosquito rackets.

It's baffling to see the otherwise good actors like Om Puri, Shreyas Talpade and Deepak Dobriyal perform so badly. Om Puri and Yograj Singh are worthy contenders of 'who can be more loud' competition. They only shout at the top of their voices throughout the film. Ragini Khanna is decent in her small role.

TEEN THAY BHAI doesn't even have teen (three) genuinely funny scenes. Watch it if you want to test your 'will' power.

Rating: 1/5
