Yousuf Marikkar (Fahad Fazil) is the Crime Branch CI, who is his his duty to unravel the mystery of a case of one of the twin sons of a reputed Malayali businessman, based in Bangalore. Yousuf smells something unnatural in the death of the twin as the identity of the deceased comes in the cloud of suspicion.
Dr Hari Narayanan and his twin Ravi Narayanan (played by Murali Gopy), who are identical twins, share a common trait like any other twins. They are so deeply attached too. Dr Prema (Honey Rose) is the love interest of Dr Hari. The problem arrives when one of the twin dies and the identity of the existing one becomes a confusion.
1 By Two, which is more like a murder unravelling story, that apparently turns into a psychological thriller in the latter half.
Fahad Fazil, for the first time has enacted the role of a police officer in his career, looks convincing. Murali Gopy gave a well and decent performance throughout and did not give a moment to spare. Honey Rose, who played th female lead in the film, too gave out a decent performance. The rest of the cast including Ashwin Mathew, Abhinaya, Shyamaprasad added their share to make the movie worth watching.
Cinematography by Jomon Thomas suited the movie and had some really great shots too. Music by Gopi Sunder suited to the situation of the movie. Arun Kumar Aravind could not satisfy this time with a script that needed more crispiness. Writer Jeyamohan has given a bold attempt indeed but, fails this time to execute it in the most thrilling way
In short, 1 By Two, is a one time watchable thriller with some good performances from the actors. Watch the movie to see the new face of Fahad Fazil!
