Anupama Chopra's review: Chashme Buddoor
David Dhawan and Chashme Buddoor are inherently a mismatch. He is the creator of a specific kind of crass comedy, which, at its best, works as zany, energetic, disposable entertainment. Chashme Buddoor, on the other hand, is a classic, a film with a genuine sweetness.
Even 32 years after release, its moments are memorable. How can you forget Miss Chamko, or the two predatory friends constantly on the lookout for ‘shikaar’? Their attempts to get girls were so endearingly clumsy that the term never even seemed offensive. The original film had a certain lightness of being. The remake is loud and inevitably leaden. David and his writers, Renuka Kunzru and Farhad-Sajid, update it by making it in-your-face. FULL REVIEW
Critics' review: Chashme Baddoor is an insult to the classic
David Dhawan’s Chashme Baddoor is a raggedy bag of gags as flimsy as the boxers that the three buddies strut around in – they are full of colour all right but add little value to the canvas. Intended to be a breezy comic romp, the film is woefully short of wind in its sails despite all the bluff and bluster that it whips up. CRITICS' REPORT
