A Nagesh Kukunoor film is always awaited especially because it was he with his ''small budget good ideas'' funda had heralded a new genre of filmmaking with his debut film Hyderabad Blues. So naturally one had pinned a lot of hopes on his newest film Teen Deewarein. A documentary-like-realistic-drama-meets-a-mystery film, Teen Deewarein stars Naseeruddin Shah, Jackie Shroff, Kukunoor and Juhi Chawla.Three prisoners are awaiting death in a jail in Hyderabad. Jaggu (Jackie), a lawyer who is accused of murdering his unfaithful wife (Sujata Mehta in a thankless cameo), Nagya (Kukunoor) is an accountant who has been charged for killing his wife in an ''accident'' while Ishaan (Naseeruddin) is a charmer who is a small-time robber and is serving the death sentence for having killed a pregnant woman in the course of a bank robbery. Enters into their lives and the jail Chandrika (Juhi Chawla), a filmmaker who has an unhappy marriage and one who wants to document the lives of these three prisoners. A bond develops between her and each of these three inmates. Nagya hopes Chandrika would tell the world through her film that he''s innocent, Jaggu admits to her how he is willing to embrace death because that''s the only way of penance while Ishaan confides in her how he is likely to break free from the jail. A slow, first half gets its first adrenalin shot at a marvellous interval point after which Kukunoor takes us through a zippy ride to the climax point. And here''s where Teen Deewarein fails, big time. The climax is so hard to believe that you almost feel cheated having watched the film in the first place. The thriller/murder mystery aspect of the film is just not convincing and so it loses points in an otherwise good film, which could have made it to the ''great film'' category.
