At the first glance, 'One Way Ticket' (OWT) draws instant comparison with 'Dil Dhadakne Do' (DDD), courtesy the plot unfolding on a cruise ship. The ensemble cast adds fuel to the fire. But OWT is different from DDD - almost like chalk and cheese - since it's pitched as a thriller.
The film starts with our quintessential shy-boy Aniket (Shashank Ketkar) going to Europe to follow his dreams and missing the bus that is supposed to drop him at the airport. Even worse, all his belongings, including his passport, is on the bus. Aniket's attempts to get back his stuff and head home go in vain when the authorities tell him that the tour company that arranged his trip is a fraudulent one. Devastated, Aniket roams the streets of a foreign land thinking he'll never be able to go back to India. By chance, he stumbles upon the passport of an Indian national named Aditya Rane (Gashmeer Mahajani) and the ticket of a cruise-liner, after the latter is shot dead. He risks boarding the liner under as Rane and meets Shivani (Amruta Khanvilkar), Samar (Sachit Patil) and Urvashi (Neha Mahajan) on board. Hell breaks loose when Aniket learns that Shivani is Aditya's girlfriend. Moreover, Samar, the photographer, and his assistant Urvashi, his assistant, seem to have an opinion about everything related to Aniket and Shivani. The entry of Joseph D'costa twists matter further. But is everyone really what they portray to be?
Logic, it seems, is just another word for the film's makers who conveniently choose to scrap it. How else would one explain the passport and identity swapping with such ease that no one detects a security breach? And then there's the blatant advertising of a popular talcum powder. Remember how annoying commercial breaks during movies on TV are? Well here, the makers have made the experience even more pathetic.
There are strong actors in the film and they try to give their best. But a predictable story that is devoid of basic logic pushes the film into a never-ending abyss.
OWT could've been a very good thriller had more focus been given to developing the script and story instead of innumerable aerial shots of the cruise ship, random songs on the streets of European nations and well, the 'in-built' talcum powder ad.
What the film ends up being is a star-studded disappointment.
