Teen Patti - External Reviews

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.
