One By Two
Report dated 31/01/2014 @ 6:56 PM

One By Two Cast: Abhay Deol, Preeti Desai, Rati Agnihotri, Lillete Dubey, Darshan Jariwala

Direction: Devika Bhagat

Wait to be seated, in the meanwhile take a look at the menu tonight. The portions are large, so everything is served one by two. In the 'Specials' we have a daringly different product of Bollywood, Abhay Deol. With a storyline that wants to leap out of mundane romcoms. Some spark of comedy, some feathery feel-good scenes. And some good music (Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy) for the hungry soul. We'll come back to what's 'not hot' on the menu, for now let's dig in.

Everything in Amit Sharma's (Abhay) life is unbearably boring. Starting with his name, of course. He's in a permanently pakaoed (like deep fried French fries) and purposeless state of mind - with a nagging mom (Rati) who buys him stretchable underwear and emotionally blackmails him to opt for a quick-fix boredom solution called shaadi. His college sweetheart dumps him for being as mundane as manchow soup on a date. And to top it, thanks to his 'gas'tronomical indulgences (blame it on 'pakaoed paneer') he's a good ol' fart too. He believes, when life throws shit at you, you need a lot of toilet paper. Phrrr!

On the other side, Samara (Preeti - pretty, super confident and shows promise) raised by single-mom (Lillete-good act!) is aspiring to be famous dancer by winning a dance reality show. She's exasperated with her mom who has a date with the daru bottle every night, and an ex-boyfriend who can bed anything for benefit. Her mantra is 'clean up the shit'. Amit and Samara's paths almost cross, but they miss each other each time by a split second. Eventually, after all the 'shit happens' and is flushed out; fate has fresh plans for them.

Debutante Devika's concept might look good on paper, but onscreen it dissipates like diarrhoea. Strung with a few laughable scenes, it scrambles around with too many plots crafted like episodic sitcoms. It intends to reflect the psyche of the 'wuzdat' generation but quickly crumbles like an out-of-love, casual sex relationship. Abhay is good in his part, but after his super performance in 'Raanjhanaa' he's not at his peak here.
