Raghav Sachar, the flamboyant musical sensation, who made notable presence with offbeat KABUL EXPRESS, gets his first big commercial opening in Bollywood with comical ?bhelpuri? musical stuff in ONE TWO THREE. Barring the exception of semi-hit ?Manzar? (SUNDAY), he has been moreover recognized as budding Indi-pop sensation with albums like ?Play it loud? and ?24 Carat? to his credits. The album showcases his multifaceted skills as a mushrooming prodigy but the word ?remarkable? seems to be eluding him.

Raghav Sachar inundates his trendiest ?fusion? of mixing vintage Bollywood?s oomph with upbeat (similar to ?Anjane Chehre? (Album ? ?Play it loud?) orchestrations with hip-hop splurge into his ?filmi? career first multifarious presentation in title track ?One Two Three (hip-hop)?. Sachar collaborates affably with gruffly voiced Kunal Ganjawala and emceeing of Earl in oozing out a flippantly hilarious title track that boasts loads of brazenly poetic spells. Aditya Dhar?s frivolous wordings get into two more versions while Munna Dhiman?s poetic works excels in soft ballad version. Sachar moistens out his vocals chords in shimmering vocal tones in ?One Two Three (ballad)? that is akin to sentimental needs of the flick. There is more in store for appreciating comical quotient with quizzically phrases making mood merrier with different genres, moods, situations and vocals mixing audaciously in emanating out hilarious binge in ?One Two Three (Amalgamation)?. New Punjabi sensation Kaptan Ladi, Kailash Kher, Kshitij Tare and Aditya Dhar had gibberish overtones of flippant wordings that should surely be fitting well into character?s needs and comical delight of the film. The fourth version ?One Two Three (club mix)? is a typical promotional feature work that outrageously mixes seductive feminine oomph in delirious baritones with lead vocalists Kunal Ganjawala and Raghav Sachar flashy voices echoing and bulging out with enthralling disco beat fillers. All four versions carry the titillating signature feel of stylish comical flick with great aplomb and are expected to be picking up well with ever growing promotion in coming weekends.




To be honest, there are some seriously funny moments that make you laugh the loudest, which dull the impact of a weak storyline. Suniel Shetty is lovable in his bhola act; Tushhar Kapoor is OK while Paresh Rawal shines in bits. Far from the actor, we have known him to be. Also, he looks very tired, just like Esha Deol who puts in no great effort into her role. Surprising, because this is one actress who takes pride in every outing. Sameera Reddy too, shines in bits. At least she has much more to do here than she did in RACE, which released last week. Upen Patel and Tanisha Mukherjee walk in and out of frames. As for Neetu Chandra, I think she is the surprise pack among the three girls. As the cop on the lookout for offenders, she adds some saucy moments to her ?encounters?. She looks fresh too.

The duo of Sanjay Mishra and Vrajesh Hirjee combine well with Mukesh Tiwari to ignite the laughter as the dons on the lookout for a stolen diamond while Manoj Pahwa as the Bhai injects life into the silly one-liners.

TO GO OR NOT: On the whole a decent fare if you are going in just for the laughs.

Ratings : 2 / 5

If you are looking to have a laugh, ONE TWO THREE, provides humour in huge doses. And, though at times it does get a bit monotonous you are willing to let that pass because after 15 minutes into the movie and having endured a long, boring commentary, which describes the main characters, you just go with what the director wants you to do; leave your brains behind and laugh your guts out. You stop looking for sense because director Ashwani Dheer?s focus is getting the audience to have a hearty laugh. There are some stupid one-liners, which are witty nonetheless and every situation is a moment for comedy.

And the situation here is a case of mistaken identity with three men sharing the same name Laxminarayan (Suniel Shetty, Paresh Rawal and Tushhar Kapoor) checking into hotel Blue Diamond for different purposes. As expected, the envelope they are to receive describing their job goes to the wrong Laxminarayan and therein lies the tragedy that opens up to a laugh riot.
