One 2 Ka 4, 2001
Shahrukh Khan and Juhi Chawla have done a little bit of everything - action, comedy, romance, kid's films. More specifically, Shahrukh Khan and Juhi Chawla have done a little bit of everything in One 2 Ka 4, a funny, romantic action movie for kids.
The film is centered around Arun Verma (Shahrukh Khan), a police officer who is devoted to his senior partner, Javedbhai (Jackie Schroff). What Arun can't stand, however, are Javedbhai's four kids. He also can't get rid of Geeta (Juhi Chawla), a fast-talking Punjabi girl whose idea of flirting often involves physical harm.
Things quickly get crazy around the department, what with people stealing drugs and getting shot all the time. With all of this going on, someone's eventually going to lose an eye - or their life. That's how Arun ends up the legal guardian of Javedbhai's aforementioned children. Fortunately, he still has Geeta and his old friend Champak (Dilip Joshi) to help him out. Even though the children hate Arun, even accusing him of killing their father, they quickly become attached to Geeta. In spite of her loudness, her violent flirtation, and her constant nagging about vegetables, she even grows on Arun after a while.
On top of abrubtly becoming a father of four, Arun devotes his career to finding Javedbhai's killer, leading him through a tangled web of deceit and corruption. This leads him to a shady nightclub where he sees a sexier Geeta dancing on stage - and he flips out. The dancer denies that she is Geeta, and he returns home to the kids and Champak insisting that she had been there all along. Things go from crazy to crazier as Arun learns more about the plot that killed Javedbhai, and he is only more confused by Geeta's apparent twin. All of this leads to gunfights, physical combat (it turns out that Geeta can kick ass), and the cutest song I've ever heard: "I'm sorry, o sorry, jaane do... Hota hai, chhodo bhi, jaane do!" That's totally on my iPod now.
All said and done, One 2 Ka 4 is an appealing masala film. The SRK-Juhi jodi is as sweet as ever, and both of them are alternately romantic, hilarious, and action-y. Towards the end I became a little confused at the complicated plot, but that's partly because of my own short attention span and the fact that I'm puppy-sitting. It's definitely worth the watch, though - if only for the "I'm sorry" song.
