Verdict : Can wait for it to come on TV

Real-life love birds Abhay Deol and Preeti Desai are sharing screen space for the first time in One By Two. But we wonder if they are actually sharing screen space at all! Devika Bhagat’s debut directorial is a mess. While she’s actually trying to deliver a romantic-comedy, we get to see neither romance nor much comedy throughout the film. If you expect to see Abhay-Preeti’s reel-life chemistry on the big-screen, you are in for real disappointment.
 
Story:-
A lengthy tale, Amit Sharma (abhay) is a regular guy who is doing his best to win back his girlfriend Radhika (geetika) who has dumped him out of her selfish motives. On the other hand, there is Samara (preeti) who comes from the UK and wants to make it big in Indian singing circuit. At the same time, she also has an alcoholic mother (lillette) and parental issues. How Amit and Samara’s paths cross and what happens after that forms the rest.
 
Presentation:-
The director has come up with an interesting storyline and while the presentation was nice, the narrative was not gripping. The dialogues were neat. The script was alright but the screenplay made it weak. The background score was melodious and songs were alright. Cinematography was upto the mark. Editing was bad. Costumes were trendy while the art department was natural. Abhay Deol was not that great and he could not deliver. Preeti Desai is a showstealer with her dance and hot looks. Lilette Dubey was good. Darshan was not used to his potential. Geetika was moderate. Jayant Kriplani and Rati Agnihotri were apt. Others did their bit as required.
 
Conclusion:-
It is always interesting to see paths of star crossed lovers to intersect but that requires a screenplay with conviction and reasonable sequence of events. That was missing here. The first half was actually very boring and it drags to a large extent. It is only the second half and climax sequences which really lift the film but by that time the audience lose the patience. Overall, this is a film which had good potential if the length was trimmed and some entertainment was added in first half. At the box office, this could be a below average treat.
One By Two is a 2014 Hindi romantic comedy directed by Devika Bhagat. It released on 31 January 2014 at multiplexes with around 500 screens in India. The film features real life couple Abhay Deol and Preeti Desai. This is the story of Amit and Samara who meet each other while living in Mumbai. The music of the film has been composed by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy. The film was heavily panned by critics
