Te3n movie review starts with the story of Te3n revolves around a Kolkata based Anglo-Indian family in which John Biswas (Amitabh Bachchan) lived with his wife. Due to some reasons, John’s granddaughter dies and thus John wants to find out the murderer and takes the help from Police Inspector Sarita Sarkar (Vidya Balan) and father of a Church Martin (Nawazuddin Siddiqui). From here the story proceeds with some twist and turns, because of this it is very difficult to catch the murderer. Will John, Martin and Sarita able to get success in catching the suspect? To know this, you have to watch the film.


Te3n is the Hindi adaptation of hit South Korean movie Montaz. Sujoy Ghosh has done a commendable job as a writer. The story of Te3n is very mysterious and it slowly unfolds each layer of the suspense, which you will like it.  The actual locations of Kolkata will mesmerize you and you will see some unknown locations which you haven’t seen yet. The first half is lengthy but the pace of second one is pretty good.

Amitabh, as a grandfather is in his best and he has done spectacular work in the film. Big B is now in his 70’s but the way he is performing with each and every film, some young actors might feel insecurity from him. Nawazuddin, as usually gave his best and will win your hearts. Vidya has impressed in her extended cameo as a police officer and the rest of the star cast has also performed pretty well.


The only problem with Te3n is its pace. The first half seems to be little lengthy, so you have to pay much attention in every scene because if you miss a sequence, the story will proceed further.

Last Words:

Te3n is a wonderful treat for those who always want a  gripping story with some finest performances. Suspense-thriller lovers will definitely enjoy the film. At least, you have to watch it once for Big B.


My ratings for Te3n is 3 out of 5 stars.
