Movie Review: One by Two (2014)
Amit Sharma (Abhay Deol) is an easy going man has given into the mundane and has absolutely no qualms about leading a boring life. On the other hand, his girlfriend, Samara Patel (Preeti Desai) finds no end to her frustration after failing to make a mark as a dancer. How the two take the path of self discovery is what forms the rest of the film.
With a very simply laid plot, ‘One By Two’ tracks down the lives of two protagonists, each caught up in their cobwebs in life, each wanting to get another step closer to the ultimate dream. What both of them lack, in their own distinct ways is the go-getter attitude and confidence to take over the big bad world. Isn’t that the case with most of us? The director effortlessly weaves the similarities in her characters with the stark differences in their personalities which is what makes the plot line so endearing to watch. The subtle undertone of the uncertainties that cloud the minds of most of the youth today is brilliantly dealt with. At no point does the director let the dialogues and treatment of the subject cross the line and sound preachy.
