Storyline

Laxminarayan lives a poor lifestyle in Mumbai along with his widowed mother, Kanta, who wants him to be a successful gangster like Batlabhai, and would like him to kill a few people, make enough money, then get married to Khujli's daughter, Meena. In order to fulfill his mother's wish, Laxminarayan accepts a contract to kill D'Mello Yadav, a Pondi-based gangster, who has stolen a diamond from Batla. Then there is Laxminarayan, the detailed and obedient Secretary of D.M. Pipat, who wants him to buy a vintage car from a Pondi-based used car dealer, Laila. Finally, there is the third Laxminarayan, who sells undergarments and runs a business 'Bulbul Lingerie' along with his son, Sonu, who decides to travel to Pondi to meet with his new supplier, Jiya. The trio all arrive and book rooms next to each other in Blue Diamond Hotel. Their respective lives will be hilariously turned upside down when Pipat's assistant will be mistaken for Kanta's son, and taken hostage by Yadav and his men; while...

One Two Three is the kind of film that will make you want your money back.
19 December 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Let's assume you had the worst week of your life — you lost your job, you were mugged at gunpoint, and your wife ran off with your best friend. Understandably, you're looking for something to cheer you up, and considering the week you've just had, even an average comedy would make you smile. One Two Three, this week's new Bollywood release from director Ashwani Dhir is not that film. It's not likely to uplift your spirits; in fact, I won't be surprised if it depresses you some more. In the tradition of many recent brain-dead comedies, One Two Three is another one of those stupid films that has neither script nor plot to speak of, yet hopes you will ignore all of that and succumb to its juvenile attempts at making you laugh. The film's about three guys with the same name who land up at the same place and get mistaken for one another, all of it ending up in much chaos. Laxmi Narayan No 1 is Tusshar Kapoor a wannabe gangster, Laxmi Narayan No 2 is Sunil Shetty a dim-witted office employee, and Laxmi Narayan No 3 is Paresh Rawal a bra-and-panties retailer. All three show up in Pondicherry — or Pondy as they keep referring to it in the film — on different missions, but all hell breaks loose when one gets mixed up for the other. Sameera Reddy, Esha Deol and Neetu Chandra play the ladies who find themselves inadvertently involved with the three Laxmi Narayans. Wait, there's more — Upen Patel and Tanisha Mukherjee are a young couple who chance upon a precious diamond that one of our Laxmi Narayans is here to seize. And if that wasn't enough already, there's also an assortment of underworld dons and henchmen who jump into the fray. Borrowing gags from a wide range of sources — the Mr Bean series, to a bunch of similarly tacky B-grade comedies — One Two Three delivers pedestrian humour including cheap sex jokes, and silly one-liners every other minute. There is so much talk of bra-sizes and ill-fitting underwear that it makes you want to gag the writer with his own pair. Apart from maybe three moments that genuinely make you giggle, the rest of this film is one bitter pill to swallow. It doesn't help that the film's endlessly long and the actors frustratingly foolish. Surprisingly, it's the wooden-as-a-block Sunil Shetty who lucks out with the wittiest role in this film. The rest, including Paresh Rawal, are an absolute embarrassment.It's the kind of film that'll make you want your ticket money back!
