Teesra Kaun is a 1994 Hindi language comedy action thriller film directed by Partho Ghosh. It features Chunky Pandey, Mithun Chakraborty, Amol Palekar, Satish Shah, Rakesh Bedi. The film is a remake of the 1990 Malayalam film No.20 Madras Mail, directed by Joshiy and starring Mohanlal in the lead role.


The story revolves around a train journey in Howrah-Bombay Mail. Three Bollywood-stricken, Nagpur-based slackers, Vijay Verma, Bingo Nagpurkar and Khoka Ganguli board the Howrah-Bombay Mail, to head to Bombay to watch a cricket match, and to meet Bollywood actor Mithun Chakraborty.

During this trip, they drink a lot of alcohol. Vijay notices that the people in the next room in his train coach are a couple with an attractive young woman. He goes over to introduce himself, and finds that the man calls himself Mr. D.K. Kadam (Amol palekar), and the young woman's name is Manjula. Vijay wants to change his seat, so that he can be near Manjula, but unfortunately that seat is taken up by a young man, Pankaj Nigam. Vijay attempts to forcibly take the seat from Pankaj, and a fight ensues, and Vijay is asked to leave them alone. During a stopover, Pankaj leaves the train, and when the train starts, Mr. Kadam finds that Manjula has been killed.

The police begin their investigation, and they have two suspects, namely, Pankaj Nigam and Vijay Verma. They also find out that Pankaj is not who he claims to be, and that his real name is Sanjay Chopra. Further investigations prove that neither Vijay nor Pankaj could have possibly murdered Aisha Manjula, leaving the police, Vijay and his friends on one hand, and Sanjay Chopra, to hunt for the third suspect (i.e. Teesra Kaun?), the one who actually killed Manjula, and the one who may also kill anyone who stands in his/her way. Further, Mithun helps his all fans in every way. After a huge fight it is revealed that the man who was pretending to be the father of Manjula was murderer of Manjula's father and he blackmailed them always. Finally on confrontation with Mithun, Pankaj and Vijay, Dr. Kadam confesses that he was the actual murderer of Manjula. In the last scene Manjula's mother shoots him on station while the police inspector was about to arrest Dr. Kadam




The 8002 Howrah Bombay mail is shown running with different locomotive engines in different scenes.

The star cast boards the train's 1st class compartment and say that it is air conditioned coach. However, in next scenes you can see that all windows are open and it is not a A/C coach.
