Remember that reasonably engrossing Hollywood thriller Se7en, in which two sleuths go looking for a serial killer with a thing for the seven deadly sins?
TE3N gimmicks its name similarly and gives us three characters in search of a criminal, but it doesn’t borrow the entire story from the Hollywood film. This official remake of a Korean mystery with a kidnapping and a death of a girl at its heart is quite slow paced for the most part, brightened only occasionally by a scene or a line.
Amitabh Bachchan plays John, an elderly man still stunned by grief, eight years after the death of a little girl. He will continue to search for the person who caused it, despite being dissuaded by people all around him : wheelchair-bound wife ( Padmavati Rao), sympathetic policewoman Sarita ( Vidya Balan), and cop-turned-priest Father Martin ( Nawaz). He will persist with his dogged pursuit for justice and truth whatever happens. Amitabh really excels in his role.
