Tere Mere Phere Hindi Movie Review

Sep 29, 2011 By Mansha Rastogi

If there ever was an award for the most raucous film in Bollywood it would definitely go Deepa Sahi's Tere Mere Phere. All that the film has to offer is noise and a helluva lot of it. Right from the first scene till the end, the actress shrieks and shrills while the actor yelps and yells with the film heading nowhere.


Depicting a battle of sexes, TMP is a story of a couple Pooja (Sasha Goradia) and Rahul (Jagrat Desai) who have a perfect love affair and a perfect marriage, set out on a perfect dream honeymoon in a motor home driving through the breath taking Himalayas... but then can life ever be perfect?! As Pooja and Rahul get too close for comfort, the gilt of romance begins to rub off, a series of absurd fights follow and soon they get embroiled with a local Himachali small town guy Jay (Vinay Pathak) and his girl Muskaan ( Riya Sen). How the couples get involved in a madcap situation is what follows through the rest of the plot.


It's a surprise to see filmmaker couple Ketan Mehta and Deepa Sahi who've been known for films with content come up with a trashy plot executed in the most juvenile manner. Not only is the plot a cliché with too many films depicting the battle of sexes already making way to celluloid, but even the scripting of it is faulty.


Tere Mere Phere is unbelievably loud, blaring and jarring. If the actress is screeching throughout the film, there's ear-splitting music, deafening background score and shrieking dialogue baazi in the entire film. That's one reason why you'd want to run out of the theatre within 10 minutes of the film's start.


If by any chance you bear the deafening noise, the acting or rather the lack of it would leave you brain dead. Each and every actor has Over The Top written on his/her forehead. Not only are they unrealistically loud but ham beyond belief. The make-up and styling of all the actors is badly done.


The only face to the film Vinay Pathak also gets wasted in this awry plot. He has a very small part to play and does give a scene or two to guffaw but the rest of the film is such a gaffe that you do not bother enough to see Vinay. One relief that Deepa Sahi offers to the viewer is rope Riya Sen for a very very small role. The actress would just have a screen time of 10 minutes and that's all that a viewer can take.


To sum it up, Tere Mere Phere is one crazy film that you should be away from. Watch it only if you want to risk your hearing power!


An extremely loud and raucous Tere Mere Phere is one crazy film that you should be away from. Watch it only if you want to risk your hearing power!
