What is the most important thing of Crime Thriller films ? It's suspense, who don't let audience get off their seats. Don't give you any chance to guess and in the end surprise you. So it don't diverts you mind, story should be tight.
Directors Ribhu Dasgupta's film TE3N starts with hope. Now seeing this, 60 years old person Jaan Biswas (Amitabh Bachchan) gets tired visiting Police station. He is searching kidnappers of his 8 years old Grand Daughter Angelina, who is out of Police hands even after 8 years. Angelina is no more in this world, she died in that incident, because of which Martin Das (Nawazuddin Siddiqui) believes himself as Guilty. Her was investigation officer in that case, but now he is a father.
Even after slow start, this film remains exciting, reason behind this is John character. An old person, whose wife is paralytic. He does all the works of home, he even goes Police station daily and his investigating the case at his level, Tiredness don't go off his face.

Now to know the whole story, you have to see the film. Before and after interval, there are many turns, which will kept to sit on your seats, but climax of the film is very kiddish.
Police investigation is shown too fast and somewhere too weak. In a scenes, it is clear that Kidnapper is using tape recorder of his voice. Still Martine searched head, after interview, investigation was creating interest who come in very convenient way with a plan. Someone sees hero in the film. This film is remake of 2013 North Korian film 'Montage'. Story and screenplay is different.
Why to Watch :
This film looks interesting because of Amitabh's acting. His behaviour, walk is perfect for John character. Today also, Angry Young Man can be seen in his eyes. There is no power in Nawaz's character. Vidya has less scope. It seems like, this role can be given to anybody else.
