Worst remake of Child's Play
1 September 2012 | by jahangirhussain74See all my reviews

This is one of the worst remakes of a Hollywood film that I've seen. Too many unnecessary songs and action was included in this film. It was a blatant copy of the Hollywood horror flick Child's play with a few differences here and there. in the original, there was a kid and his mom, in Papi Gudia there is a brother and a sister. The sister is a dancer who is the only source of support for her younger brother. and of course, there is an unnecessary romantic angle between a cop and the sister like most bollywood movies. The villain played by Shakti kapoor looked scary and disgusting. but he wasn't as menacing as the villain in the original. papi gudia is such a waste of time. avoid this flick for the sanity of your mind!!!!
