A loud avoidable comedy derived from the director's last hit.
Frankly speaking there is nothing much to write about this rehashed madcap comic movie, which occasionally does make you laugh on some cheap jokes and dialogues. However, addressing the makers, I would like to say that we are all ready to keep our brains at home for good comedy movies and are eager enough to throw away all logics in order to have some good laughing moments in the theater. But at the same time we are also not fools to keep laughing on the same jokes cracked again under a different title. Elaborating on my above statement let me explain the process, how this quick limited budget movie must have been conceived by the makers and the team.
Director Sameer Karnik's last movie was a big hit with the three Deols called YAMLA PAGLA DEEWANA. If you have watched the film, then you would agree that the first half of the film was pretty weak than its second and the film actually proved a winner after its interval when the Deols meet Anupam Kher and his family in Punjab. So, taking a clue from this universal feedback, director Sameer Karnik thinks of making another quick movie majorly based on the plot used in the second half of YAMLA PAGLA DEEWANA which was actually responsible for its runaway success. For this he takes almost the same star-cast featuring Kulraj Randhawa, Anupam Kher, Johny Lever, Mukul Dev and more for his key roles which are almost the same as in YPD with slight changes. Like in the present version Anupam Kher changes from a Punjabi 'Singh' to a Rajathani Royal 'Singh' and Kulraj comes straight from abroad. To add more spice to the Punjabi feel of the film, Sameer adds Om Puri along with Farida Jalal in the character of a Punjabi couple who abuse more and talk less in their local accent. Now for the hero's role since it would have been suicidal to cast (Sameer's favourite) Bobby Deol once again for the same script, therefore Tushar Kapoor is called in to show his comedy skills, which he does quite well. Further, more actors are roped in for contributing their bit in some silly sequences like Anita Raaj, Sushant Singh, Chandrachur Singh, Rahul Singh and Harish who remain completely wasted throughout the film.
With everything on the plate, still a SIKH character was missing in the film, which has been a key feature of Sameer's recent movies. In fact he even made SALMAN KHAN portray a SIKH Officers role in his HEROES and then worked with the Deols in 2011. So following the same track of YAMLA PAGLA DEEWANA, he makes Tushhar Kapoor enter in the getup of a loud PAPPI SARDAR, exactly like Bobby Deol did in the original. And then the climax is written with a similar vision where all the confusions get cleared after a jumbled action sequence in which even the actors don't know, with whom they are supposed to fight.
Coming to the music part, since it was a low budget movie, so an already Hit track is remixed "Chandni O Meri Chandni" and another more than 5 years old readymade Hit Punjabi Pop track "Kangna Tera Ni" (Dr. Zeus) is added into it to woo the Northern belt. But the Cinematography remains the same reminding you of all those funny sequences in the second half of YPD. Here I would also like to mention the avoidable incorporation of "Croma Technique" used for the scenes where Tushhar is talking from abroad, which also gives you the idea of its nature of quick production. Plus exploiting Punjab and the repeated use of DDLJ syndrome in a film script has now crossed the boundary to reach the tag of "Over-Used".
In short, the above might have been the recipe of making CHAAR DIN KI CHANDNI in a short span of time in order to encash the already HIT plot of director's last successful venture. The film does have its moments and few enjoyable performances too namely of Tushhar, Kulraj, Anupam Kher and Om Puri, which are capable of making you smile. Yet I really couldn't laugh whole heartedly on all the similar sequences once more in these new settings. But if you don't mind laughing on the same joke again, then the choice is all yours.
