Bollywood is simple obsessed with the idea of marriage because directors believe that majority of the audiences love to watch movies that revolve around the institution of marriage and therefore story writers look for themes that go around the central idea of marriage. In recent times there were many movies that talked about the process of wedding like Band Baajaa Baaraat and Mere Brother Ki Dulhan but Tere Mere Phere is post marriage situation. Directed by Deepa Sahi, Tere Mere Phere stars Vinay Pathak, Riya Sen, Jagrat Desai, Sasha Goradia, Darshan Jariwala and Sushmita Mukherjee.

The movie begins with Pooja (Sasha) and Rahul (Jagrat) who are just perfect lovers and they decide to have a perfect marriage. Once they are done with all their marriage formalities they set off for their sweet perfect honeymoon somewhere in the Himalayas but unfortunately life is never perfect. They come closer to each other every moment they spend together, but when things come too close the vision gets blur. The same happens with the sweet couple as they begin to have series of fights. This is when they come across a couple Jai (Vinay) and Muskaan (Riya) who are not yet married but want to get married soon.

On performance level, Vinay Pathak is the only character that ensures that you get some value for money from the movie. Riya Sen is just too glamourous for her role as village girl and she is a complete mismatch for her role. The director should have known that village girls from Himachal Pradesh do not have foreign accent in their tone. Apart from Vinay Pathak, Jagrat Desai is something that you should watch out for. This is his debut movie but his acting skills are very natural which is good to see. Sasha Goradia is natural at times but she still needs some coaching in the acting department. Darshan Jariwala is complete waste in this movie so it is strange why he went for such roles in the first place. Technically, the movie is not something that you should remember. The cinematography by Christo Bakalov is good and some mountain shots are good but nothing beyond that. The music by Shivangi Kashyap is generally based on folk songs but it fails to make any impression at all. The story by Deepa Sahi and Jagrat Desai is good but it lacks cinematic essence which is required to keep the audience happy.

To conclude, Tere Mere Phere is just a good attempt that went wrong because of the poor script. The story talks about the contemporary idea of marriage and compares one married couple with an unmarried couple to show which option is better. The movie could have been better if it was scripted in a better way and directed in a fresh way rather than going through the same typical Bollywood way. Tere Mere Phere is just a battle of sexes that could be avoided.
