Laughter at It's Best!
9 April 2013 | by (United Arab Emirates) – See all my reviews

CHASHME BADDOOR is a comedy/romantic movie directed by David Dhawan, starring Ali Zafar, Siddharth and Divyendu Sharma. This film is a remake of the 1981, CHASHME BUDDOOR, with the same storyline.

The film revolves around three guys, Omi(Divyendu Sharma), Jai(Siddharth) and Sid(Ali Zafar). Three of them are broke, living in a guesthouse, finding some way to not pay rent. A new girl moves in named, Seema (Tapsee Pannu) and Omi and Jai, being the usual, try to woo her but fail. They are surprised when Jai, the studious guy, manages to get her. And the rest of the movie shows what Omi and Jai try to do.

Now, I haven't seen the original Chashme Buddoor but I think its safe to say that when I exited the cinema, I had laughed way too much and I was upset as hell to acknowledge that the movie had ended. THIS MOVIE IS HILARIOUS... and pretty much ONE of the best movies of the year. Now don't get me wrong, there are much more sensible movies out there which have released in the 2013 cinema but David Dhawan has managed to make this movie shine. The story starts to fade halfway but you really don't seem to care because as long as the laughs keep coming, you are happy. Don't expect the world from this movie, but just expect a weak storyline and hell load of laughter.

The reason why I give this movie a 9 and not a 10 is due to the times I felt that the romance between two of the older characters isn't needed. I quite liked it, yet I felt it needed a bit of more excitement to it.

Performance wise, I felt that Divyendu Sharma and Siddharth were the best out of the three of them. Normally you would think that Ali Zafar would be the best, but in this film he had to play an innocent guy. He does his role extremely well but it doesn't balance with Divyendu and Siddharth's acting due to their slapstick characters. To be honest, Taapsee Pannu's acting wasn't very grand, and Rishi Kapoor's acting was finesse, as always. Anumpan Kher's acting was quite comical but quite better compared with his role in Kyaa Super Kool Hai Hum.

The replay value of this movie is quite high. I don't mind seeing the movie again in the cinema. It's worth the money and the second serving of popcorn!

The music is quite good. Songs like, "Har Ek Friend Kamina Hota Hai", "Early Morning", "Ishq Mohallah" and "Dichkyaon Doom Doom" were quite pleasant to listen to. Songs like, "Andha Ghoda Race Mein Dhoda" were quite mad yet funny when you watch it due to Siddharth's dance moves.

In the end, I will say that this movie is exactly what I said on the top, its Laughter at It's Best! There are songs that will mike you groove to the beat, jokes that will make you laugh out loud and one- liners coming at your way.

If you haven't seen this movie, I recommend it strongly, if you want a weak story and a hell load of jokes, with a lot of thought into it!
