This whodunit thriller, directed by Ribhu Dasgupta, was released in theaters worldwide on 10th Jun 2016.
John Biswas (Amitbh Bachchan) has been fighting tirelessly for the past eight years to get a clue about his kidnapped granddaughter, Angela Roy, who was only eight years old at the time. Despite grieving for the loss of the beloved child, John is not willing to accept defeat and begins to probe the crime on his own. However, a similar kidnapping puts the focus back on Angela’s case. Martin Das (Nawazuddin Siddiqui), the sarcastic inspector, who handled Angela’s case, has left the job to become a priest. However, he is motivated by the new inspector Sarita Sarkar (Vidya Balan) into helping crack the new kidnapping case which seems to have the same modus operandi as Anjela’s kidnapping.

Even though the movie is based on a Korean film, it has been executed superbly by packed performances by the three leading actors further add to the appeal of the movie that is able to maintain the suspense right till the end. Even though Amitabh Bachchan shines through as the traumatized grandfather relentlessly seeking justice, both Nawazuddin and Balan have to be applauded for their flawless performances. T3EN is definitely a must watch movie not only because of its actors but because it presents a simple plot in a highly engaging manner. Overall the movie is a great entertainer and IndiCafe24 gives it a rating of 3.5 stars.
