Having written and won awards for seven consecutive years for TV serials, this hugely talented writer Ashwini Dhir makes debuts as a director with ONE TWO THREE, also written and scripted by him. Producer Kumar Mangat’s Big screen Entertainment in collaboration with Sunil Lulla's Eros Entertainment film ONE TWO THREE’s music has been composed by funky song Titled 'Manzar' fame (SUNDAY) multitalented composer Raghav Sachar. Raghav Sachar composed title song 'One Two Three' has just been unveiled on the music channels. Debutant Ashwani Dheer who has made people laugh for years with his sitcom famous Teleshow OFFICE OFFICE on the small screen is aiming to tickle the funny bone from 28th March onwards.
ONE TWO THREE is a comedy of errors, as has been established with an extensive two minute promo. The promo pretty much conveys the quirky feel of the film while concentrating on three main characters around whom the story revolves - Suniel Shetty, Paresh Rawal and Tusshar Kapoor. Each of the three men is named Lakshmi Narayan in the film and this is what brings the entire confusion in the plot.
Diamonds worth ten crores are stolen from dangerous Don, Papa. The diamonds accidentally fall in the hands of young love birds – Chandu (Upen Patel) and Chandni (Tanisha), who quickly hide them in a car. Papa and his idiotic henchman Alberts (Vrijesh Hirjee) and Pintos (Manoj Pahva) are desperately hunting for the diamonds while hot headed police officer Mayavati Chautala (Neetu Chandra) is on the prowl looking for offenders of any kind.
Enter the first Laxmi Narayan (Tusshar Kapoor). He’s from a Khandani mafia family and his mother prays that with a few murders under his belt, he will be settled for life. After botching up badly in his early attempts, he’s got a final chance to redeem himself as a Bhai. He comes to Hotel Blue Diamond, Pondicherry because he’s taken supari to bump of Papa (Mukesh Tiwari).
Enter the second Laxmi Narayan (Suniel Shetty). He’s an MBA from Darjeeling and lives his professional life by following two simple rules 1) The boss is always right. 2) If the boss is wrong follow rule no. 1 He is sent to Hotel Blue diamond, Pondicherry to collect a new car for his boss from Laila (Sameera Reddy).
The third laxmi Narayan (Paresh Rawal) is a hawker who has made so much money selling underwear on the footpath that he has set up a lingerie factory for his son. His son sends him to Hotel blue Diamond, Pondicherry to collect lingerie samples from upcoming designer Jiya (Esha Deol)
