Movie Review (Eros Int. Box set, Part 2): One Two Three (2008)

 One Two Three
Director: Ashwani Dhir
Starring: Suniel Shetty, Paresh Rawal, Tushar Kapoor, Sameera Reddy, Esha Deol, Upen Patel
Big Screen Entertainment. 2008

The hitman, the businessman and the lingerie salesman

Laxminarayan 1 (Tushar Kapoor) is a poor boy whose mother wants him to become a successful gangster. After a valuable diamond is stolen, he gets an assignment to kill a rival mob boss 'Papa' (Mukesh Tiwari). The second Laxminarayan (Suniel Shetty) is a clumsy executive who is always very concerned about getting directions right. He gets assignment from his boss to buy a vintage car from Laila (Sameera Reddy). Laxminarayan 3 (Paresh Rawal) sells lingerie and is trying to do business with underwear designer (Esha Deol). The three Laxminarayans get mixed and hilarity ensues.

Anyone understood the plot?

The characters are comic book-like, the gangsters wear rimmed hats and pinstripe suits. There are plenty of one-liner jokes. One of Papa's henchmen, the bomberman, is even named Pinto. The music usage is quite different from usual bollywood-films, and title song is often repeated. There are only a few "music video" songs.
Mexican stand-off, Bollywood style
Overall the movie is silly fun, with lots of slapstick jokes. Certainly not a classic but goofy fun in the style of Police Academy films.

Rating:  Good
