'Te3n' Tweet Review: A Gripping Thriller With Power-Packed Performances
The fact that the film features stars Big B, Vidya and Nawazuddin in key roles, viewers can expect moving, superlative performances. Divya Pal of News18.com is inside the theater to live tweet the experience.

Set in Kolkata, director Ribhu Dasgupta’s ‘TE3N’ has all the ingredients of a successful thriller, at least that’s what the film’s promo convincingly shows.

The film revolves around John Biswas (Amitabh Bachchan) who loses his eight-year-old granddaughter Angela Roy in a heartbreaking kidnapping incident. Since then he has been unhappy and holds himself for an incident he isn’t even responsible. It is this relentless quest for justice that makes him visit the Lal Bazar police station everyday, to meet the officer Sarita Sarkar (Vidya Balan) and get an update. The only person whose help John seeks is Martin Das (Nawazuddin Siddiqui), a former cop who has now turned into a priest. The only thing common between John and Martin is – the impact of Angela’s absence.

It is interesting to see how the project brings back popular names that had worked together and given memorable films in the past. Film’s producer Sujoy Ghosh had worked with Vidya in ‘Kahaani’ in 2012. And Amitabh and Ribhu had also teamed up for the TV show ‘Yudh’ in 2014. And, ‘TE3N’ also presents Vidya and Amitabh together after ‘Paa’.

The fact that the film features stars Big B, Vidya and Nawazuddin in key roles, viewers can expect moving, superlative performances. Divya Pal of News18.com is inside the theater to live tweet the experience.
