Movie Review: Tere Mere PhereStory
Story: Tere Mere Phere sheds light on the after effects of marriage, where a newly married couple- Rahul (Jagrat) and Pooja (Sasha), encounter strange behaviours of each other on their honeymoon, leading to brawls. Things become worse, when Jai (Vinay Pathak) has to face the brunt of it, when their common flight to Shimla, returns back because of Rahul-Pooja's yet another fight. Jai, who's actually on his way to rescue his lady-love Muskaan (Ria Sen) from settling for a forced marriage, now has very little time in hand and is left with no option, but to opt for a road journey to Shimla, with Rahul and Pooja, who own a vanity car. Now, will Vinay be able to win Muskaan from her orthodox family or will he have a change of heart watching the consequences of a marriage, through the journey of the couple that accompany him, is the rest of the story.
Story Treatment: Tere Mere Phere, is a dull affair in terms of story-telling. What makes matters worse, is the poorly written screenplay. In fact, first 20 minutes decide the fate of the film, as the rest of it does nothing, but tests the patience of the viewer. The entire film focuses on the fights between the protagonists and this aspect bores one to death. The new entrants do justice to their roles, but the monotonous moments take away their effort. Vinay Pathak breathes life in the film with his funny acts, but he can’t be the savior here, as he gets little scope in the first half.
Star Cast: Vinay Pathak doesn't surprise, but manages to tickle the funny bones during the climax. Jagrat Desai and Sasha Goradia live up to the expectations of their characters, thus look promising. Darshan Jariwala and Sushmita Mukherjee are simply wasted. Riya Sen in her cameo, irritates to the core.
Direction: Deepa Sahi as a narrator and a director, doesn’t leave an impression at all. The flick comes across as a very amateur product from her kitty, which was surely not expected of someone, who has spent so many years in the industry. Barring the beautiful locales of Himachal Pradesh, nothing in Tere Mere Phere impresses. The repetitive quarrels with meaningless dialogues leave one in despair, plus some irritating moments, like the one where the female protagonist, due to the non availability of an empty wash room is ready to reply to nature’s call right at the roadside, further irk one’s mind.
Music/ Cinematography/ Dialogues/Editing: Music further adds to the misery of screenplay, as it is intolerable. Cinematography is the saving grace as it beautifully captures the locales of the HP. The dialogues are again boring. Editing, too takes a toll on the movie.
3 Ups and 3 Downs: Performances, beautiful locales and cinematography are the strong points. Sadly, a thin storyline, overtly dragged screenplay and boring dialogues make it a film, which can’t be recommended on any condition.

'Tere Mere Phere' is an awful filmCast: Vinay Pathak, Ria Sen, Jagrat Desai, Sasha Goradia
Director: Deepa Sahi
'Tere Mere Phere' is a loud and exaggerated comedy whose opening scene sets the mood and the tone for the roughly ninety minutes that follow. A man and woman seated beside each other on a flight get into a squabble over hogging a common armrest. It leads to something of a riot in the cabin when other passengers join in, throwing bags at each other, spilling food all over the place, and generally creating such a nuisance that even the pilots have to ditch control of the plane so they can try to break up the fight,..
Actress-turned-director Deepa Sahi helms this awful film that tests your threshold for pain as it goes about its business trying to make you laugh at its pedestrian humor. The film is centered on a pair of newlyweds who find themselves getting on each other's nerves - and ours - as they traverse the gorgeous Himachal landscape in a luxury trailer. The honeymooners (played by newcomers Jagrat Desai and Sasha Goradia) bicker endlessly through the journey, smashing cutlery when they're exasperated, and throwing mud at each other's faces. Watching their romance turn sour, Vinay Pathak, playing a fellow passenger who's hitched a ride with the couple, gets cold feet about eloping with his own lover, played by Riya Sen.
The film has no script to speak of, merely a string of arguments and quarrels in place of a story. To add to that, the performances are so embarrassing, it's as if the four principal players were competing in a championship for bad acting. Tere Mere Phere offers no great insights into man-woman relationships, and neither are the couple's clashes in any way amusing.
On the upside, there is some eye-pleasing cinematography of the Himachal landscape; and the only interesting character is the teenage brother of the male lead, who appears wiser than his years…and wiser than every other character in the film, in fact.
I'm going with one out of five for Deepa Sahi's 'Tere Mere Phere'. Carry cotton to protect your eardrums from the shrieking, shouting, and incessant arguing.
