One By Two Movie Review

Ratings:1.5/5 Review By: Rajeev Masand Site: Masand’s Verdict (CNN IBN)

One By Two tries hard to break the mold of Bollywood rom-coms, but seldom offers scenarios or characters that are refreshingly original. A feisty young girl whom Amit dates on his mother’s insistence steals the film in only a couple of scenes. She’s got what the film badly needed – oodles of spunk. I’m going with one-and-a-half out of five for Devika Bhagat’s One By Two. To quote a song from this very film: I’m just pakaoed!

ONE BY TWO is miles away from cliched Bollywood fairy tales. While Devika reserves the best for the second hour, it’s the first half and chunks in the post-interval portions that create a total mess, making you restless in the process. The story hardly moves in the first half. The post-interval portions do raise the barbut the writing lacks the power to keep you enthralled through and through. On the whole, an out of the box film like ONE BY TWO has some engaging moments, but they are few and far between. The excessive length and the slow pacing also play a spoilsport.

Mid-way through One by Two, an exasperated ex-girlfriend screams at the still-besotted boyfriend whom she recently dumped: You are so boring. Aur toh aur tumhara naam bhi boring hai. I felt her pain. Boredom weighed me down too as I watched this film. The story by writer-director Devika Bhagat isn’t half-bad but these characters whine too much to be interesting company.

Devika Bhagat makes a confident debut as director but her narrative style, like her story and screenplay, would appeal to a very limited audience only. On the whole, One By Two offers entertainment for a very thin section of the audience and will, therefore, fail at the ticket windows. Business in premium multiplexes would be okay but it would be pathetic elsewhere.

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 s** relationship. Abhay is good in his part, but after his super performance in ‘Raanjhanaa’ he’s not at his peak here. If your stomach is still growling, your table for two (stars) is ready!

True to its name, this is half a film. It’s half-written, half-digested, half-witted.Abhay Deol shoots himself in the foot by acting in (and, inexplicably, producing) this monstrosity that sucks all the goodwill out of an actor we usually like, and his apparent girlfriend Preeti Desai hands in the kind of atrocious performance that makes vintage Katrina look like Juhi Chawla. And if incompetence weren’t bad enough, the writing stinks. Literally.

There is no dearth of perspiration in screenwriter Devika Bhagat’s directorial debut. She packs quite a lot into the film. Yet it feels wafer-thin. One By Two is a quirkily off-kilter romantic comedy that turns many a norm of the genre on its head. Unfortunately, it never quite manages to find the plot or the characters to keep pace with its carelessly strewn ideas about life, love and loafing.One By Two isn’t particularly romantic and, notwithstanding its laboured attempts at toilet humour, it certainly isn’t comedic either.

The Imran-Kareena starrer ‘Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu’ is an appropriate benchmark for the slick portrayal of unconventional urban modern-day romances. Though the intent and idea is clear, ‘One By Two’ is only half way there.

This is a case of missed opportunities. Trying for likeability is tough when the film is saddled with a listless plot and pace. And actors trying to lend it some heft, especially veterans like Rati Agnihotri and Jayant Kriplani, but not being able to because they don’t get enough. The zaniness of Deol-in-his-boxers makes us laugh, even if it feels a trifle contrived. You wish that the ‘One By Two’ had been half as much fun.

Ratings:2/5 Review By: Tushar Joshi Site:DNA

The film takes too long to set sailing. First half has very little substance and most of the scenes look like fillers put together to battle the reel length. Witty and funny in parts, One by Two needed to double its dosage of humor and drama to come out with flying colors. Unfortuantley it remains a half baked effort to provide any real entertainment.

Here’s what’s truly disappointing about the non-masala Bollywood bandwagon that brings out films like One By Two. At least those who are out to make blockbusters give their audience what they want. Films like One By Two are an attempt at a compromise between masala Bollywood and smart storytelling. Like so many compromises, it isn’t fun and it’s distasteful to both parties.

One By Two is a linear film that doesn’t evoke anything from you at all. The stretched screenplay is tiresome, the lead actors are awfully boring, the dialogues were a flop show, the story was futile and utterly pointless and mostly even after a good first half of the film finished up, I was clueless about where the film is heading. I have admired Abhay Deol since Socha Na Tha but this was his most sub standard performance till date. You never expect such relentless rubbish from a fine actor like him and that remains the most disappointing bit of the film.
