Synopsis
Teen Patti opens with Amitabh Bachchan narrating a story to Sir Ben Kingsley. Bachchan plays mathematics professor Venkat Subramaniam. He is an eccentric genius who talks to Einstein’s portrait. His students love him but his colleagues think he is crazy. He spends hours working on a thesis on probability and cracks a new formula. His colleague Shantanu Biswas (R Madhavan) needs money so he urges him to apply this formula to gambling. He recruits three students: Aparna (Shraddha Kapoor), Siddharth (Siddharth Kher) and Bikram (Dhruv Ganesh) and the five of them become an undercover team that gambles at addas. Moneybags Abbas Sheikh (Vaibhav Talwar) is intrigued by their activities. He joins them and becomes their ticket to sophisticated, upscale parties where they can make more money. Life seems to be hunky dory but then things start going awfully wrong.

Amitabh Bachchan turns in a dazzling, applaud worthy performance that leaves you speechless. What he brings to the table is spectacular and it is amazing how he sinks his teeth into this role which is tailor-made for him. Only he could have pulled it off. His character is vulnerable and he evokes sympathy from the viewer. His chemistry with Sir Ben Kingsley is pure magic and watching the legends together is reason enough to watch Teen Patti. They are absolutely in sync and secure with each other and you can see the respect they have for each other. Their interactions form the highlight of the movie.

Madhavan matches up to Mr. Bachchan. His quick-thinking and clever Shantanu keeps you guessing and with an effortless performance he proves why he is one of the most sought-after actors in Bollywood today. He is particularly good in the scenes where he manipulates the other characters. Saira Mohan is sexy and gorgeous as Kay while Raima Sen is the quintessential dignified girl-next-door in her special appearance as Madhavan’s fiancĂ©.

Shraddha Kapoor looks very pretty; she can act and has a pleasant screen presence. She slips into the different avatars easily: whether that of Chameli or the polished Zeenat. You can see that she is madly in love with her buddy, Siddharth. Shraddha’s chemistry with Siddharth is crackling in the Bonnie and Clyde scenes. Siddharth is a looker and brings out the unpredictability of his character. He is difficult to read. The pretty boy with blond hair is cut out for Hollywood and international cinema. Dhruv Ganesh is the epitome of an insecure small-town guy and brings a unique vulnerability to his complex character. He should opt for intense and complex roles in the future. Vaibhav Talwar plays suave and sophisticated Abbas Sheikh. He has very few lines in the movie but he has immense screen presence and a rare star quality. He is easy on the eyes and his charm reminds you of Shah Rukh Khan. His future in Bollywood looks bright and promising. The cameos are interesting and Mahesh Manjrekar’s gangster character stands out.

The movie is a visual treat as the production values and camerawork is top-notch. The special effects are neatly done and the background score enhances the narrative. The use of colour is perfect. The addas are tobacco-stained and sleazy while the uber-rich casinos and parties are gorgeous and classy. The sequence at Cambridge looks absolutely stunning. The movie covers a wide range of areas from the spacious college campus to shady addas to picturesque Cambridge and the lanes of Bombay. The production design, especially Venkat’s room with dusty piles of books and portraits of scientists, shows attention to detail. Neeyat is one helluva sexy video and do watch the stylish video of Life is a Game at the end.

Teen Patti has a suspense element that keeps you guessing. It is unconventionally and intelligently funny, except the over-the-top scene when Mita Vashist's character barges into Venkat's quarters. You wish the romance angle between Aparna and Siddharth was better explored and neatly tied up and that some of the gambling and cheating theories were better explained. You have to pay attention while watching the movie. The sharp editing by Hughes Winborne unravels the film layer-by-layer and Leena Yadav handles a variety of scenes, from Venkat's breakdown to the tension and risk at the addas and Bikram's mania with equal elan and panache.



You will either hate or love Teen Patti. There is no in-between choice. While watching Teen Patti, you may be confused about what is happening but hold on, as everything is explained in the end. There are some films that you like when you see them but when you go home and think about it, you realize the movie was absolute nonsense. Then there are other movies, like Teen Patti, whose impact takes a while to settle in. The more you think about it, the more you like it. And, you WILL think about it. The more you watch it, the more you will understand it. So, if you like movies that have layers, a strong, cautionary tale of a message, and make you think, then Teen Patti is for you.

MUSIC OF TEEN PATTI

You can bet on Teen Patti

Salim-Sulaiman have churned out an unconventional album for Teen Patti. The album has hip-hop, rock and dramatic songs with impressive vocals and instrumentation.



I was looking forward to the music of Teen Patti because the background score in the trailers appealed to me and Salim-Sulaiman are background score specialists and do a great job with soundtracks too. Moreover, Leena Yadav’s last film, Shabd, had spectacular songs (Sholon Si and Khoya Khoya rank among my favourites even today) for instance. I expected the album ofTeen Patti to be international and classy with rock and hip-hop elements. Teen Patti offers that with a dollop of drama. The lyrics are a cautionary tale against gambling, greed, money and the like.

Teen Patti is a niche album because many of the songs are in English, but if you like it, you could listen to it all day. Among our favourites on the album are:Neeyat and its remix, Life is a game and Summertime and the living.

The sizzling video of Neeyat has got everyone hooked. For those wondering, the pole-dancing lady with the body of a goddess, is Brazilian model Mariah.Neeyat is a song that you will either hate or get addicted to. Sunidhi Chauhan is at her seductive best after ages and you can sense that she is enjoying herself, showing off her fabulous range in this dramatic song. We love the Spanish elements in the song. The remix is interspersed with Amitabh Bachchan’s ‘Khel hai baby/khel hai’ and unmatched laughter and some rapping. The catchy beat will get you grooving and it would be fantastic to the do the Salsa to. Some may prefer this to the original.

Intezaar me chupa kahi is a rock song featuring Naresh Kamat who modulates his tone and pitch very well. The song builds up rather nicely and the guitars are impressive. There is an element of suspense in the song. A good rock song after ages! The remix is tolerable.

Salim Merchant gets behind the mike for Teen Patti ke ghulam. The song is reminiscent of Aankh micholi from Dev D. Salim is getting better and smoother with every song. The fusion of several instruments is interesting and the dance number is quite catchy. The remix will be hit with club-goers.

Amitabh Bachchan opens and deals out pearls of wisdom throughout Life is a game. Newbie Sonia Sehgal takes over, unleashing her full-throated English vocals. She has a powerful voice, like that of Suzie Q, and is quite a find. We like the dramatic element of the song. It sounds international. The Hindi version is equally good. Sonia sounds like Anushka Manchanda.

Summertime has an international sound and you can almost visualize the characters entering a plush casino. Alternatively, it could be an introductory song for one of the characters (the rich one). Joe Alvares impresses with his range and we like the playfulness in his voice.
