In the new buddy comedy “Chee and T,” the titular pair (Sunkrish Bala and Dominic Rains) are debt collectors stuck living in Silicon Valley; they spend their time kicking down doors and chain smoking the day away. When their boss Chee’s Uncle Rob, a wealthy landlord-tycoon, task the two guys to get his nephew Mayunk (Asif Ali) a suit and a haircut before his upcoming engagement party. Unfortunately, Mayunk is a lot wilder than they previously anticipated with a penchant for acquiring and consuming drugs. Soon they have to handle their hyperactive, drug-crazed little cousin and deliver him to Chee’s uncle before it’s too late. Watch the exclusive teaser trailer for the film above.
