Udta Punjab explores the situation but doesn't delve deeper into the addict's point of view. It explores more of the Punjab and less of why is it "Udta", and what makes the "kanjar aulaad" resort to doing drugs.
Te3n's plot focuses upon two similar kidnapping cases separated by eight years. While the first one involves a girl, the second involves a boy. But the modus operandi is so similar that the police suspects that the same person is behind both of them. Has the kidnapper returned to the city after eight years of absence? Or, someone is merely trying to imitate the earlier kidnapping?

Every scene follows the exact same pattern: Some conflict occurs → Guruji enters dramatically in laughably blingy costume complete with tacky headgear → Guruji solves conflict through words/violence/magic (seriously)→ People causing conflict realise Guruji is da man and start chanting 'Dhan dhan satguru tera hi aasra' (an actual DSS chant) → Guruji smiles beatifically, unwittingly looking like a man who has just smoked some of the best weed of his life.
All films must be judged by the difference between what they intended to deliver and what they actually delivered. The smaller the difference between the two, the better the film, and vice versa. It's only February, but I'm willing to wager my vocal cords that we probably won't see a worse film than Shamitabh in 2015.
