The movie has been produced by Kumar Mangat and Sunil Lulla, with collaboration of two popular film banners - Big Screen Entertainment and Eros Entertainment. Ashwani Dheer the debutant director's One Two Three is a slapstick comedy with a decent star cast.

Om Shanti Om
Om Shanti Om is a Manmohan Desai type of a masala film of the 1970s. It has the premise of reincarnation as was in Subhash Ghai's "Karz". Okay, it is a joyous film which has its silly giggling and overacting in parts, especially the typical mother (Kirron Kher) of a struggler son, who lives, thinks that one day her son would definitely become a super star of Bollywood, since her husband could not fulfill his dream. A typical filmy mother. Its here and a few other scenes where the film appears unrealistic. Debutante Deepika Padukone is the hasina in this case. Shanti has a pretty face, charming smile and an old-world charm… She is the reigning superstar of 70s. Shah Rukh Khan is the deewana, he is in love with her. Om, who is a struggling actor - a junior artist and her biggest fan. He dies in a mishap while watching Shanti in danger on an opulent film set which is on fire. Thi ....

Kanjibhai Mehta (Paresh Rawal) is an atheist, who runs an antique shop. For him, god and religion are nothing more than a business proposition. An astute businessman, he never misses an opportunity to buy old or antique sort of idols of gods and other religious idols, which he usually sells as ‘antique’ or ‘rare’ idols at 10 times its original price or even more.

Film Review   Overtime is about a struggling actress and how she succumbs to the cruelty. This topic has been taken up in bollywood films before. What needs to be seen is whether director Ajay Yadav handles this issue with a fresh approach. Unfortunately he does not. Ajay Yadav's Overtime  is the story of a young aspiring film actress in Mumbai Khushi (Swati Sharma), who is experiencing the most trying time of her life – the struggling phase. It is a bad world, and the hindi film industry is even awful. There are nothing like emotions or care for other human being. Especially that of the strugglers who live a dogs life. So it is the same cruel world and ruthless people around her. Now Khushi also has to survive and make ends meet. The simplest and effortless profession is that of flesh trade and she starts working as a high profile call girl. Khushi comes across corrupt pe ....
