Storyline

Bhatinda-based middle-classed Harpreet Gill is unable to get his three rather plain-looking and overweight daughters married and must live with constant criticism from his wife; his brother, Chiksi, is a fake dentist who incurs wrath of his patients; while his second brother, Fancy, is an out-of-work Punjabi movies' actor. The trio dislike each other and keep their distance. When their grandfather, Khetrapal Singh, passes away, the trio do get together and waste no time in squabbling with each other. They are, however, pleasantly surprised when they find out that he had left a mansion in their respective names. Their joy will turn to anger and disgust after they find out the location as well as the terms and conditions, spread over a period of three years, that go with this procurement.

The most absurd movie of 2011 served in the name of Comedy.
15 April 2011 | by bobbysingSee all my reviews

To start with, 3 THAY BHAI undoubtedly remains one of those few substandard films which should not have been made in the first place. In fact the only question I had in mind while watching it was that "How could a big production house of a reputed director back this kind of spineless project?" Produced by the well known, Rakesh Omprakash Mehra (who I still can't believe directed RANG DE BASANTI), I wonder what inspired him to approve this kind of inferior film?

Yes, many a times, a story looks very interesting in its scripting stage, which tempts the producer to put his money on. But actually it's the on screen execution of the subject which counts in the end. And 3 THAY BHAI fails miserably in its execution department. At times while watching it, I was even forced to think that why the film was not shelved in between after seeing its rushes in the initial stages of its making.

Anyway, now it has reached the theater and the viewer's intelligence is once again put to test like in many recently released bad comedies. Based on the story of 3 real brothers who are not on talking terms, the script revolves around a novel idea about reuniting them through their fathers left Will and its condition to be fulfilled. But sadly the idea remains an idea and the film goes wrong in its every department, right from its storyline to the direction wasting three brilliant comic talents of the present times.

First of all, the snowy backdrop of a deserted house, where the majority of the film is shot, fails to make a direct contact with the viewer. Why the director decided to go for such a location remains a mystery throughout the film. Secondly, the Punjabi family of Om Puri, his fat daughters, the fake dentist, his awkward love story and the coming back from the ashes sequence of the dog, simply take the movie to more lower standards of absurdity as it progresses. In short, post intermission its like a torture sitting in the theater watching everyone jumping, running and falling in vain without any clear direction.

Though the title track has some catchy notes and the cinematography also captures the white snowy backdrops well. But still these two factors alone cannot provide you enough entertainment in the theater. Truly speaking the film has got only few, very few good scenes where Shreyas Talpade manages to make an impact and Om Puri (though over the top) gives you something to enjoy with his Punjabi abusive one liners. But the rest of the cast does nothing worth writing. Deepak Dobriyal doesn't convince and Yograj Singh just shouts perfectly. Ragini Khanna doesn't get enough scenes to impress still she does bring in the much needed amount of relief in this all men movie.

In all, it's a golden opportunity missed by the first time director Mrigdeep Singh Lamba. And once again its a movie which proves that the actors don't actually know, what kind of project they are working in and they just act as per their scenes, take their money and go home.
