One Two Three – movie review

A comedy of errors


One Two Three, movie review

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. One Two Three is a story of mistaken identity of three men with the same name and the hunt for diamonds worth 10 crores. One Two Three, movie review –

Diamonds worth ten crores are stolen from the dangerous Don, Papa (Mukesh Tiwari). The diamonds accidentally fall in the hands of young love birds – Chandu (Upen Patel) and Chandni (Tanisha), who quickly hide them in a car. The don and his idiotic henchmen Alberts (Vrijesh Hirjee) and Pintos (Manoj Pahva) are desperately hunting for the diamonds while hot headed police officer Mayavati Chautala (Neetu Chandra) is on the prowl looking for offenders of any kind.

Enter the first Laxmi Narayan (Tusshar Kapoor). He’s from a khandani mafia family and his mother prays that with a few murders under his belt, he will be settled for life. After botching up badly in his early attempts, he’s got a final chance to redeem himself as a Bhai. He comes to Hotel Blue Diamond, Pondicherry because he’s taken supari to bump off Papa (Mukesh Tiwari).

Enter the second Laxmi Narayan (Suniel Shetty). He’s an MBA from Darjeeling and lives his professional life by following two simple rules – 1) The boss is always right. 2) If the boss is wrong, follow rule number 1. He is sent to the same hotel in Pondicherry to collect a new car for his boss from Laila (Sameera Reddy).

The third Laxmi Narayan (Paresh Rawal) is a hawker who has made so much money selling underwear on the footpath, that he has set up a lingerie factory for his son. His son sends him to Hotel Blue Diamond, Pondicherry to collect lingerie samples from upcoming designer Jiya (Esha Deol).

The 3 Laxmi Narayans happen to be in the same place at the same time. Co-incidentally all these three approach at the hotel reception desk expecting important messages for them.
Incidentally the three Laxmi Narayans get letters and photographs meant for the other.

First Laxmi Narayan gets lingerie designer Jiya’s photo and goes to kill her, only to end up as her hero. Second Laxmi Narayan gets Papa’s photo and goes to collect the car from him, only to be mistaken for a killer and gets beaten black and blue. Third Laxmi Narayan gets Laila’s photo and asks her to show him her designer under garments, only to be branded as an old pervert.

One Two Three is a case of not one mistaken identity, but three! A crazy bunch of people, doing the wrong things for the right reason. Supposed to be laugh riot from the beginning to the end, the movie tickles only at some instances as a completely crazy bunch of people is all-set to do wrong things for right reasons.

Meanwhile Chandu and Chandni are determined to stop anybody from buying the car where they have hidden the diamonds.

But Laila has to sell the car to save her showroom. And Jiya has to sell her designs to save herself from lecherous Mende’s clutches.

One Two Three, movie review – Sanjay Mishra stands out with a brilliant comical performance, Suniel Shetty too ends up with a good performance. Paresh Rawal is as usual good. Tusshar Kapoor is yet to work on his dialogue delivery and body language. Esha Deol hams. Tanisha is irritating and so is Upen Patel. Sameera Reddy is okay for her glamour. The rest of the supporting cast in One Two Three performs well.
