Even though the writer and director try to pepper the narrative of 'Tere Mere Phere' with enough moments that try to bring out the disparity between men and women, results are neither funny nor engaging. This is where the film tries to take a 'Pyaar Ka Punchnama' mood by explaining varied characteristics of the two sexes. However episodes around 'men don't like asking for directions' and 'women like things to be totally organised' are hardly the kind that are original and only makes one wonder if the makers could have thought of something newer that came straight out of life.
Jagrat and Sasha play a newly wed couple who think that they are one of those perfectly compatible couple, only to find themselves fighting over silly things. On their honeymoon they end up arguing way too often and find themselves in the company of Vinay Pathak who is on a journey of his own to woo his lady love Riya Sen. While issues between them seem hard to be resolved, ultimately (and as expected) it turns out to be the call of 'all is well'.
Right from the very opening sequence you get an idea that this directorial debut of Deepa Sahi is going to be an amateur attempt. So whether it is a badly constructed aircraft set to an all around poor acting by all actors who step in as passengers to an utter lack of direction, the film falters at its very first step in such a fashion that you feel anything from this point may only get better.
In fact all you see is the couple arguing on minor things, most of which actually make the viewer feel that the boy here was totally wrong. After all any newly wed girl would protest of her hubby, on third day of their honeymoon, gets drunk with a group of absolute strangers. Or for that matter exchanges those sweet-nothing SMSs with a girl he has just given a lift. Or steps on the bed with his shoes on. Or starts bragging about making breakfast one fine morning.
Vinay Pathak also seems to be a forced inclusion and was perhaps brought in to lend a certain market value to the project. So even though the promos try to project this as a film that Vinay as integral element, the fact is that he is visible in only around 20% of the film. As for Riya Sen, she just has a scene in the first half and then a couple towards the last 20 minutes.
While lack of substantial humour is the biggest problem of 'Tere Mere Phere', the fact that it just goes on and on without any culmination in sight is the worst culprit. Worse is reserved for the pointless pre-climax and climax involving Vinay, Riya and her brother. It solves no purpose whatsoever, tries to bring in some artificial excitement and falls flat on its face.
How much of bickering can one take in near life? Not much actually, despite having high level of endurance. The film is such loud and annoying that instead of sympathising with the on-screen couple, you actually wish they split sooner than later so that there is some relief for the victimised audience.
