One Two Three marks the debut of director Ashwani Dhir who has directed the comic hit `Office Office' for Sab Tv. Once again the director explores his favourite genre but this time the difference is that it's a 2 hours plus feature film with bigger star value.

The music of the album has also been composed by relatively new pop icon turned composer Raghav Sachar. After the success of album-`Play it loud' and `Kabul Express' ; Raghav returns to bollywood with a film that offers greater scope for music..

The album opens with Raghav's trademark flute synchronizing to the tunes of the title track. The track sung by Kunal Ganjawala has rap elements backed by Earl who seems to be bollywood's answer to rap. The track sounds quite familiar to Raghav's album number and the lyrics penned by Aditya Dhar attempts at merely creating a rhyme scheme by using words like -three, free etc. What is interesting about this number is that the female voice heard in the track has actually been crooned by none other than Raghav. It's quite commendable that one wouldn't say so on hearing this number. Looks like Raghav wants to give the female playback singers some competition.

The title track comes in three more forms-Club Mix, Ballad and Amalgamation. The club mix is more of a dance number but doesn't really impress. The Ballad version has some good lyrics by Munna Dhiman and has been crooned by Raghav. The track amplifies life and talks about the small things of life that come absolutely free and how we often don't value them.

The amalgamation has a mix of voices ranging from Kaptan Laadi, Kshitij Tarey, Aditya Dhar, Kunal Ganjawala , Raghav to Kailash Kher. This track is an 8 minute long version of the title track with some bhangra and qawalli elements. The lyrics by Munna Dhiman attempts at being funny using the `Bebasi, Baywatch' link etc. But in totality the track is more like a traffic commotion rather than an orchestration. The duration also makes it dragging.

`Rock Mahiye' is full of pace and this dance number impresses.The track has been crooned by Raghav Sachar and Sunidhi Chauhan . The foot tapping number is sure to be remembered at least till the film's promotion lasts. The picturisation of the track on Upen Patel and Tanisha has got a lot of gloss.  In spite of the fact that words such as `Rock' and `Mahiye' have been used over and over again; this track surely works for a film like this.

Raghav returns with `Gup Chup', a track that fuses in elements of rock and jazz. The original score has Mahalakshmi Iyer lending her voice where as Shilpa Rao of the `Woh Ajnabe' fame renders for the remix version. The track is quite impressive and Raghav impresses with  his vocals. The hook of the track `Na ja na ja' is sure to be remembered provided the video offers some great stuff.

Sunidhi Chauhan's `I Wanna Guy' is pretty much a poor number. Sunidhi's husky solo performance fails to hold together a poor composition with a topping of weak lyrics. The lyrics is vague as the Hinglish element of `guy..joh dil mein bas jaye' sounds a little strange. The track fails to bring about the woman's hunt for her dream guy.

`Lakshmi Narayan' has been rendered by actor Ninand Kamat who has sung the `Police Poice' number for Shiva . The track brings in comic as well as `Bhaigiri' elements. The track is quite impressive and has fused in several dialogues from the film. Unlike `Ganpat `from Shootout at Lokhandwala , the track is more on the comic side. The track features more as a promotional tool rather one to be remembered in the `Ganpat' league.

To conclude, One Two Three has trac
