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

Chor Machaye Shor is Fulltoo-Timepass comedy-- Maharishi Verma
23 May 2016 | by (India) – See all my reviews

The year 2002 was very bad for the David Dhawan because he gave back to back flop that year--Yeh Hai JALWA ,Hum Kisise Kum Nahin,and Chor Machaye Shor.But I must say that the CMS is the better film than two.That time some critics called it a copy of Blue Streak , but I want to tell them that only the basic theme of the film is same and nothing.And I want to inform all IMDb users that the Blue Streak was not so funny.So, don't compare this flick with that film,the Hollywood comedies are different from Bollywood.In every Hollywood comedy flick you will find a kind of vulgarity, even in a family comedy.Now, come to the point before his arrest Shyam a thief manages to hide stolen diamond in a construction site.After 2 years the site is now a Police Headquarter so, Shyam becomes a police officer to regain his diamond. That's the only copied element from the Blue Streak.Performances wise Bobby Deal does very well as a thief ditto for Paresh Rawal and Om Puri.Heroins doesn't have much to do.Songs are enjoyable.Shekhar Suman has his moments.Bobby deal and Om Puri's chemistry is good.Rajat Bedi and Aashish Vidyarthi is likable,same for Rajpal Yadav.Don't try to find any logic you will be disappointed.To be entertained, give it a watch.
