Not sure where to start and how to start. Ok, making it simple and starting with the intro. Teen Patti is directed by Leena Yadav (Shabd), produced by Ambika Hinduja ( Big moneybag. Hinduja family), stars Amitabh Bachchan, Ben Kingsley, R Madhavan, Raima Sen and a bunch of new comers. The  not-sure-what-they-were-doing list includes Ajay Devgan, Mita Vashisth, Jackie Shroff, Shakti Kapoor, Ranjeet, Mahesh Manjrekar, Tinnu Anand, Siddharth Sanghvi and Barry John.

Was interested because of only name. Shiv Subramanium, whose writing credits includes films like Parinda, Is Raat Ki Subah Nahi, 1942 A Love Story, Hazaroon Khwashein Aisi and Chameli. He co-wrote the film with Leena Yadav. What were they smoking ?

Since I dont have any more energy left to write a full post on the film, here is the new format we are introducing. Putting together everything that we tweet about the film while watching it. And few things which we didnt tweet but kept in our head. Here is our first Twittereview!

– What we heard before entering the theatre  : Ok, goodfellas…seems its a bad friday at the movies. As a friend said….Do Karthik, Teen Patti… All tatti!

– No havent seen Teen Patti. Watching it now. Halfway through. Exactly what i expected from the promos…very very filmy!

– Someone asked : How many stars would you give it out of 21 ? Replied : Hehhehe. Am big Kevin Spacey fan. Still counting the stars as its only halfway through.

– Post-interval : Oh man! Where is it going ? Am willing to submit all my pattas and pattis to get out now! Becoming unbearable.

– Its ringa ringa in Teen Patti too. Would be good if someone can connect the phone lines of Karthik with these guys and edit a single film out of the two. Karthik Calling Team Patti!

– Teen Patti in one line is mayhem because of money. And it turned out to be money spent in mayhem. Ben Kingsley nods listens nods listens nods listens.

– Out of the theatre : Teen Patti – bad writing, badly directed, acted, edited. It goes all over the place without making sense. Wanted to see because of Shiv Subramanium.

And here are the tweets which didnt make it to our timeline because of lack of space, time, energy, interest or whatever…..

– Madhvan is bad. No, he is terrible. Naah..Horrible. What is he doing ? He is so bad that he is good!

– With so much money, Hindujas could have bought the rights of 21 and done an official remake. It would not have been so bad.

– Barry John TEACHES acting ? Really ?

– Can see what they were trying to do. But it doesnt come together as a film. All scattered, going in random directions, the emotions doesnt show on screen and the two roommates track is funny as hell.

– Bonny and Clyde ? Who thought of that ? Deserves Red & White Bravery Awards.

As the tagline of the film says “Sab Khel Hai”, in twitter lingo we would like to add “Aur Teen Patti #Fail Hai”. Go play at your own risk.

    This is a bad review, if you want to call it a review. I dont plan to see the film, but c’mon guys, get over twitter already. If you cant articulate because its a waste of time, dont write a review for the film. Please dont do any more twittereviews.

    Agree with almost everything you’ve written. Felt never-ending. Like the same gamble-argue gamble-argue sequence was repeated about five times
    Will go and watch 21 now.
