Chor Machaye Shor is Fulltoo-Timepass comedy-- Maharishi Verma
23 May 2016 | by vermasp-81789See all my reviews

The year 2002 was very bad for the David Dhawan because he gave back to back flop that year--Yeh Hai JALWA ,Hum Kisise Kum Nahin,and Chor Machaye Shor.But I must say that the CMS is the better film than two.That time some critics called it a copy of Blue Streak , but I want to tell them that only the basic theme of the film is same and nothing.And I want to inform all IMDb users that the Blue Streak was not so funny.So, don't compare this flick with that film,the Hollywood comedies are different from Bollywood.In every Hollywood comedy flick you will find a kind of vulgarity, even in a family comedy.Now, come to the point before his arrest Shyam a thief manages to hide stolen diamond in a construction site.After 2 years the site is now a Police Headquarter so, Shyam becomes a police officer to regain his diamond. That's the only copied element from the Blue Streak.Performances wise Bobby Deal does very well as a thief ditto for Paresh Rawal and Om Puri.Heroins doesn't have much to do.Songs are enjoyable.Shekhar Suman has his moments.Bobby deal and Om Puri's chemistry is good.Rajat Bedi and Aashish Vidyarthi is likable,same for Rajpal Yadav.Don't try to find any logic you will be disappointed.To be entertained, give it a watch.
