One-line Reviews (24)

For starters, it's enjoyable if you don't make much sense of it.

Ram Gopal Varma made the same mistake with Aag, though your effort isn't horrendous like RGV's, it still comes across empty.

A light hearted enjoyable comedy film .

With excessive drollery and puns , the movie almost becomes predictable and hence by the end of the first part, things start to push you to boredom.

Dhawan spells Baddoor with an 'a' – it adds up to too 'bad' and too far gone to be genuinely enjoyable.

The film proves to be fine entertainer till the interval and one expects the graph to rise from here leading to an exciting culmination in the second half.

But at the meantime the unexpected other two are marvelous and brilliant.

Acted like pretentious and cheap creeps with ulterior and undignified motives behind everything.

Half an hour into the film and Taapsee Pannu's ordinary looks and average acting start boring you.

its a complete waste of time DO NOT WATCH THIS SH!

Still taking it positively, I hope Bollywood gets over with this avoidable trend soon (of making versions of their own Hindi masterpieces) and gives us some worth watching original works to cherish for long.

One, it's a film which starts off with the young feel and duly maintains its light entertaining feel throughout till the end without any dull moments as such.

The veteran director David Dhawan very cleverly comes out of his own shell of some fixed patterns and delivers a film which takes no help from any childish sequences as seen in his earlier films and purely sticks to the logical, engaging scenes written around its key characters.

Dull story.

Anupam Kher and Rishi Kapoor are enjoyable as always.

Dull acting.

The second half is a juxtaposition of many hackneyed thoughts and compared to the first half (more of adult comedy lies here), is too boring & predictable.

The predictable story line steals the fun of the events and the only saviour is the music.

Second, it has some enjoyable performances by the three protagonists who keep the laughter coming in through their well written dialogues delivered convincingly.

Punches in dialogues and the chemistry between all three male characters are enjoyable.

Some scenes are dragged miserably!!!

Renuka Kunzru's Screenplay is mad-cap but entertaining & humorous nonetheless.

But to give the credit where it's due, it's thoroughly engaging and entertaining.

In all, the new CHASHME BADDOOR works on the same spirit of its three decades old original and provides you an enjoyable time in the theater as promised.
