Well, with due apologies to the English classic, the days of farts and passing gas r back (never mind if only for a limited time on-screen). Salman started it all and did with elan. V all loved HDDCS (1999) and watched it repeatedly. He then made the delectable HELLO BROTHER (1999)! Ranbir Kapoor tried it in BESHARAM (2013) and the movie too was gone.... Aamir actually turned shitty with 3 IDIOTS (2009) and DELHI BELLY (2011) and scored centum. Different strokes for different people. At times, a certain section among Indians prefer sound and stink, peeing and shitting and also s.. movies. This is one among them and can score from decent to 100-cr depending on crowd response. (Remember GRAND MASTI, 2013, fluke hit 100-cr). Now people can swear instead of 'holy shit' to 'hot farts'.
Now, v 've Abhay Deol trying the same gas in his producer-debut venture and meets a deadly end. It's so stinky that forget boring; even after coming out of the theatre, one can feel nauseated and avoid food for days to come. And the gas sound can keep one off from many crucial things in life. This variety of movies are preferred by Delhiites so the movie has all the chances of doing well in the Capital and surrounding areas. Yes, Abhay is endearing and worth a watch but why this boring stuff. Rest, there is nothing to write about. After seeing this movie, one can get stomach upset and can develop gas complications leading to non-stop sounds and stink-bombs! I wondered about the title of this movie - whether it applies to house size or single becoming a pair or whatever... Can't play with my brain or else I'll have to...you know! What Abhay does is turn his real life romance to reel life with Preeti Desai. They are portraying a happy estranged couple on the brink of re-union. They meet at potty (not party silly) at the sound of farting (not New Year sounds). Something, new eh! It takes guts (and farts) to make THIS movie! This can also be a love-triangle with a suitable girl Yashika Dhillon thrown in to be an optional second pairing opposite Abhay.
Indian govt is giving 12 gas cylinders now. They can be filled FREE by Indians self-production. Will this be combustible or non-combustible gas? And don't ask about the story. How can I tell, when all I thought was EXITing and becoming sane. (just kidding.) Writing a review for today's idiotic movies is an art by itself. And this is no movie. It is docu-drama, art, parallel cinema, whatever... The less said, the better. In today's movies, there is no story. They are either hits or flop depending on the viewers patronizing them. This one tends to belong to romantic genre that was best NEVER made. Watch it with your partner to know why NOT to ever get married! Watch it as it is truly badboo ki raas leela. God save the theaters where it is shown as they shouldn't crumble with sound, stink and loo-lines. JAI HO is safe and can continue unhindered. Abhay Deol too will see 100-cr - not at the threatres but at the loos!Like2January 31, 14
ONE BY TWO is experimental cinema. While those involved seem to be having a gala time, the audience becomes the guinea pigs.
Having said that, the effort to be different by Abhay Deol and his producer friends needs to be applauded. They had the guts to go ahead with a plot they thought would be different. But alas, this was no different from the many 'made-for-the-heck-of-it-films' we have been subjected to over the years.
