Teen Patti - Notepad

wogma rating: Watch if you have nothing better to do (?)
quick review:

Teen Patti is no mind game. It could have been. Had it not folded the game's nuances out of sight or been blind the psyche of the players. A wonderful performance by Amitabh Bachchan and his stooped shoulders can carry only so much weight of the other non-actors.

What did not

Note: This section simply lists the things that I did not like in this movie. This is not the overall impression about this movie. Please read the full review here

  • Wouldn't it have been lovely if Amitabh Bachchan had at least a tinge of a South Indian accent.
  • The numbers and equations floating around the scenery.
  • Meeta Vashisht's character? Why was it there again? Or for that matter Raima Sen's?
  • The overt signals the entire team was making to each other.
