Bangalore: It takes a while to figure out why this deliciously yummy concoction about urban aspirations is called 'One By Two'. And it would be a crime more criminal than character assassination to tell you why the two main characters in the film never meet till the closing moments.

This is a film that wears its heart on its sleeve. And it doesn't roll up that sleeve when the narrative is endangered by uncomfortable twists of circumstances. Devika Bhagat loves her protagonists Samara and Amit, quirks, excesses, flatulence and all.

The urban fable constructs Samara and Amit's dreams as a spiral of frustrations. We really don't expect these two people to come out triumphant at the end. And really, they don't. What they do is to connect themselves as very believable young people with dreams that seem to be picked out from the streets rather than manufactured on a cinematic stage.

One of them likes to pound the guitar. The other one loves to dance. She is on that crazy journey through the dance-reality show, the kind that Anushka Sharma embraced in Aditya Chopra's 'Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi' to fob off a housewife's boredom.
