Years later, after killing Ramji Mahto, the police kill Baba, while Chandrama is hospitalized after being shot.

I conceived this review in the Interval ...in a hall where a dozen sat.
10 March 2010 | by (India) – See all my reviews

CHAMKU- doesn't sound quite promising does it? This fact made a huge impression upon my friends' minds and hence I decided to my old habit of watching movies all by myself in the movie hall.

The ticket counter girl smiled a little as I approached demanding a single Gold Class ticket for Chamku. She complied rather readily but not before confirming the fact of my solitary appearance. I mean, she expected intelligent couples who were interested in making out casually , to book tickets for the show , where the audience count was going to be minimal.

In stead we had quite an assortment that day. I remember it clearly and distinctly. A father along with his daughter..probably in her late teens, a group of uninterested tourists who wanted to kill time before leaving for the station ( 4 in number) , A husband and wife along with two tiny tots, A fellow like me who had for some reason come to watch this movie all alone and of course me.

To be honest I like watching movies alone. In fact I have become used to the idea of watching them alone. No one to disturb you by asking you what just happened. No chance of continuously staring at your companion's face to record his/her reaction or join him/her in their subdues laughter or moment of nostalgia.

By the interval the husband and wife had left the theater along with their kids.

Chamku , is a good decent action movie. In the 90's it would have been a hit.

Irfan Khan , Bobby Deol star in this simple straightforward movie, which for some reason loses it's way in the middle and ends up trying to be a little pretentious in appearance.

A typical storyline and chain of events hold the movie together.

Not by any means a great movie but better than all those pseudo intellectual duds which are coming out from production houses nowadays.
