    Why remake a classic if you can’t improve upon it? Truly bad-door.

    Chashme Buddoor delivers the occasional laugh but the level of the joke is someone slapping someone else or a tired Bollywood reference. If you can settle for that, check it out.

  • If the outcome of a remake is to affront everything the original represents then WHY ON EARTH call it Chashme Baddoor? Why not simply write your own story about three random friends, name it something like Teen Tigada Kaam Bigada and then include every Tom, Dick, Joseph, Josephine, Beagle, Fattu, Gattu as you please?

  • If the original was a soothing and timeless melody, this is a raucous and forgettable item number. Give it a shot if you must, but don’t expect the world from it.

    You will not like this movie if you don’t like corny, occasionally bawdy jokes.

  • Chashme Baddoor is a creatively made remake, which refreshingly refashions its predecessor. David Dhawan has finally managed to leave his flamboyance back in the 90s, coming of age giving his genius the undue pending credit of years. The film valiantly holds its ground with humor and hilarious poetry. This one is a definite must watch!

    On the whole, CHASHME BADDOOR encompasses the spirit of the original, but has been customised to entice the present-day spectators. An entertainer with dollops of humour and wild situations thrown in, this one’s a laugh-riot that should not be missed!

  • In Hindi cinema, there is a reason David Dhawan enjoys the epithet of the King of Comedy – and from the King’s treasure chest, the film is a gem. Three stars for the re-loaded ‘Chashme Baddoor’ – not to be missed, this one!
