Javed (Jackie Shroff) and Ajay
(Shahrukh Khan) are members of a special task force that combats drug
trafficking. Their main target is a notorious drug lord called KKV (Nirmal
Pandey). After a tense encounter, they do succeed in arresting him, but KKV,
with his powerful connections manages to get acquitted in court.
Javed's entire life revolves
around his four motherless children. But Ajay, who otherwise Javed regards as
a younger brother, just canít stand the kids who dislike him too and make
him the target of their naughty pranks.
Into this idyllic existence, comes
a dastardly ambush; a sudden and cruel burst of gunfire that kills Javed. Ajay
is devastated and decides that from now on he will look after Javed's orphaned
children. But the children hate him and refuse to have anything to do with
him. He tries to get of the help of his old roommate Champak (Dilip Joshi) but
that too does not work. In sheer desperation, he turns to Geeta (Juhi Chawla)
a loud and talkative rustic girl whom Javed had befriended. Geeta comes home
with Ajay and wins over the children. Slowly but surely, she manages to
capture the heart of the stubborn and hot headed Ajay, as well.
The story takes a mysterious turn
when one day, as Ajay tails KKV to a nightclub he sees him dancing with a
stunningly sexy woman. Itís none other than Geeta! Shocked out of his wits,
he rushes home and angrily confronts Geeta who denies it. Ajay is confused
when the children, too, assure him that she was all the time at home with
Ajay now determines to solve the
mystery and get to the truth. Who is Geeta? Who killed Javed? Who can Ajay
trust? Will Ajay evr know the truth? Well youíll have to watch the movie
which reveals the suspense.
An entertaining film One Two Ka
Four, has masala for the masses. The story with its suspense bit will hold the
audience attention and so will the jodi of Shah rukh & Juhi. The songs and
promos of the film do show promise and since Jackie doesn't appear much in the
publicity of the film, he will be the surprise character leading to the
suspense element in the film.
Not all of the recent Shahrukh and
Juhi films have been hits and a thriller who-done-it element in the film might
just worsen the situation. Itís a romantic film with a suspense angle to it,
it needs to be delivered to the audience with such ease that they sit up and
get more involved in it but Unfortunately, One Two Ka Four fails to show this!

Love Hewitt, Ray Liotta,
Director: David Mirkin
Release Date: March 23, 2001
Synopsis: A mother and her daughter form a con-man team based
out of Palm Beach, Florida. Their scheme is a lucrative one whereby
the mother marries a rich man, the daughter seduces him, and the
divorce settlement is the jackpot
Genres: Comedy, Romance.
In David Mirkin's
"Heartbreaker," Sigourney Weaver and Jennifer Love Hewitt
play a mother-daughter team of con women with a simple, and for the
most part foolproof, M.O. First the mother, Max (though she uses a
number of aliases), seduces a randy rich guy into matrimony, and
then, usually with 24 hours of the unconsummated marriage, her
daughter, Page, with the aid of very small dresses and abundant
natural gifts, leads the frustrated bride-groom into adultery.
A large divorce settlement quickly
follows, and mother and daughter hit the road in search of the next
patsy, squabbling and sulking all the way. In the movie's first
scenes, we witness a textbook application of the scam, applied to a
New Jersey chop-shop mogul named Dean (Ray Liotta), which nets
$300,000 and a champagne-colored Mercedes-Benz.
The film's title may seem
anatomically inaccurate, given Max and Page have elevated the
exploitation of male sexual weakness to a science. The picture,
however, is not altogether without heart. The loving but sandpapery
parent-child relationship at the center of "Heartbreakers"
is similar to those in such recent movies as "Tumbleweeds"
and "Anywhere but Here," but this suave comedy,thankfully,
forgoes throat-catching (or, as the case may be, stomach turning)
emotional earnestness in favor of bubbly silliness and medium-dry
wit. Its inevitable moments of sentimentality - as Max struggles
with her daughter's desire for independence, and Page is torn
between true love and a professional life based on false pretenses -
occur in an atmosphere of cheerful amoralism
