A light hearted entertainer
14 February 2012 | by See all my reviews

Once again a short budget movie came with a surprise like 'Phas gaye re obama , 'Tere Bin Laden' , etc.Bit slow at the start . Good Story ..Nicely directed by Hriday Shetty. Fanatastic cast , each and every one was appropriate for the role. No forced comedy, , Fantastic characterization . Naseerudin Shah, Kay Kay menon and Atul Kulkarni delivered effortlessly.dialogues were OK . some scenes were unnecessary. zakir hussain did justice to his role ..concept was new .

Chaalis chauraasi is a short and simple story. The credible performances hold on this fort together, and make it a charming tale nonetheless.

Overall, surely worth a watch if you need some light hearted entertainment with a touch of good direction
