Storyline

Fortunately, before his arrest Shyam manages to hide the diamonds at a nearby construction site, intending to return for it as soon as he gets out of prison. Two years pass and Shyam's release date arrives. Returning to his ill-gotten gains, he is horrified to discover that what was once a building site is now a new police headquarters with his stolen diamonds forming part of the foundation. Shyam decides to create and play the role of Inspector Ram and soon becomes the favourite of ACP Ranbir Singh (Paresh Rawal) at the police station. But life is not that easy going for the imposter who quickly comes to the attention of the ever suspicious Inspector Pande (Om Puri). Amidst all this mayhem Ram actually finds time to romance Inspector Ranjita (Bipasha Basu). But he also plays the character of Shyam with Ranbir's daughter, Komal (Shilpa Shetty). Soon they become lovers. Whilst Ram/ Shyam is busy with his hectic love life, other criminals, Tito (Ashish Vidhyarthi) and Tony (Rajat Bedi) ... Written by gavin@sunny_deol2009@yahoo.com

Blue Streak
21 February 2014 | by (India) – See all my reviews

David Dhawan is known for making success with borrowed concepts, Chor Machaiye Shor was a remake of Blue Streak(1999) however this time he didn't chose his regular actors but went for Bobby Deol, Shekhar Suman and also those days DD films were not working he had 3-4 flops in a row from Kyo Kii Main Jhuth Nahin Bolta, Hum Kisise Kum Nahin, Yeh Hai Jalwa

Chor Machaiye Shor borrows from Blue Streak but adds own masala, Bipasha's track was played by a male in that film, we have typical DD formula with nonsense, plus an added track inspired from Golmaal(1979) and DD's own Coolie No.1.etc However the film isn't as funny except some scenes. The second half goes on and on, with the Paresh Rawal lookalike thrown in, there are several stupid scenes like Bobby blasting an ambulance with a remote control.etc

Direction by DD is good Music is okay

Bobby Deol tries hard to get into a comic role, he is quite good though he overdoes at times Bipasha Basu is okay, Shilpa Shetty doesn't have much to do Shekhar Suman and his 6-7 different get ups do get overbearing but he does have his moments Paresh Rawal is decent but does annoy at times, his lookalike was not required. Ashish Vidyarthi and Rajat Bedi are okay, Om Puri is hilarious in his role, rest are okay
