One Two Three Story
One Two Three is a story of mistaken identity of three men with the same name and the hunt for diamonds worth 20 crores. Young love birds Chandu (Upen Patel) and Chandni (Tanisha) get hold of the diamonds of dangerous don Papa. They hide the diamond in the fuel tank of an ancient car thinking nobody will ever buy, but to their dismay, their boss Laila is hell bent on selling the same car to save her showroom.
A wannabe bhai (Tusshar Kapoor), a silly geek (Sunil Shetty), and a lingerie salesman (Paresh Rawal), are the three men having the same name waiting for messages at the hotel reception desk. They get the letters and photographs of the wrong girls meant for the other person. Although they end up at the wrong places, they actually end up doing things for the right reason.
What is the duty assigned to them? Where do they land and what do they do?
One Two Three Review
A movie like One Two Three demands a couple of things. You’re required to leave your brains back at home and dare not look out for a story as more often than not, there aint any… Some movies of the same genre and style works wonders but most of them fall flat. Unfortunately One Two Three belongs to the latter category. Its nothing but a set of silly jokes put together in a senseless plot with a few actors hamming throughout. A few sequences are funny, especially those involving Sanjay Mishra but that’s about it. The direction and screenplay are below average. The music is bad. The dialogues tend to get repetitive (especially those by Suniel Shetty) but some of them are hilarious.
Sanjay Mishra stands out with a brilliant performance, his dialogue delivery and comic timing is superb. Suniel Shetty comes second with a good performance. Paresh Rawal is as usual good. Tusshar Kapoor needs to work big time on his dialogue delivery and body language. Esha Deol hams. Tanisha is irritating and so is Upen Patel. Sameera Reddy is strictly okay. The rest of the supporting cast performs well.
Overall, One Two Three is a below average comedy movie. Watch it if you have nothing better to do.
