Chashme Baddoor - Top Reviews

Subtlety certainly isn’t the name of the game here. Wit is replaced by runaway buffoonery. As the humour assumes crude, if not lewd, overtones, the actors take the cue and ham away to glory. But to their credit, they shriek, holler, run around in circles
An irreverent remake that is as much fun as its original
Rachit Gupta, FilmFare
Tapsee is reallikeable
Shubhra Gupta, Indian Express
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.
Anupama Chopra, Hindustan Times 
Post Himmatwala, most viewers have sworn off remakes, and Chashme Baddoor (CB) doesn't do much to salvage this thought.
Sonia Chopra, SIFY
Worth a watch!
Mohar Basu, Koi Moi
Chashme Baddoor’ is exactly like any other film David Dhawan film, it is a good time pass. There is no clever humour but there is enough comedy to assure a few genuine laughs.
Rummana Ahmed, Yahoo India
What an incredible treat for film-lovers as the original Chashme Buddoor (1981) finds a release alongside its boisterous remake.

Cast:Ali Zafar, Siddharth, Divyendu Sharma, Taapsee PannuDirector:David DhawanLike a battering ram, David Dhawan's puerile and frenzied remake, 'Chashme Baddoor', shatters and mauls your memories of Sai Paranjpye's charming original. Light-hearted humour

Shy Siddharth loves feisty Seema - but his buddies falsely boast of flings with her breaking the couple up. Can love be remade?

Chashme Baddoor is a fair entertainer with appeal for the youth. It will keep the theatrical distributors smiling as the investment, in most cases, is reasonable.

-Overall, this Chashme Baddoor  is quite different from the old one in spirit. This remake may not have been able to recreate the chemistry, innocence and fun of the original, but it definitely is a laugh riot. The simple comedy will work well with the ma

coolness of 2013 – but also, at its core, a laughing, deliberate, gloriously musical homage to the high-decibel, lowbrow humour of Bollywood’s 1990s. Fun stuff.
Trisha Gupta, First Post
Overall, Chashme Baddoor does provide crowd-pleasing entertainment which has some originality to it. Having said this, David Dhawan only manages to satisfy your hunger for comedy to a certain extent with this film. Had Chashme Baddoor provided consistent

Komals Reviews
Sai Paranjpe's nuanced comedy classic gets the retrograde treatment from crass comedy specialist David Dhawan, This is an official remake but Sai Paranjpe, the director scriptwriter of the original is not very happy that someone like David Dhawan whose cinematic bundle consists of mainly generic senseless comedies, has been entrusted with the task of revisiting her charming rib-tickler.
India Glitz
The original was ahead of its times in many ways.
Namita Gupta, Rate Movies Here
Chashme Baddoor is yet another slapstick affair by David Dhawan and doesn't leave you in splits as it should.
Mansha Rastogi, Now Running
The dialogues are strictly banal and the performances over-the-top. All in all, nothing great.
Janhavi Samant, Mid-Day
Dum hai, Boss!, the perky young Miss Congeniality in David Dhawan's Chashme Baddoor - a far cry from the shastriya sangeet trainee, tutti fruti-eating Deepti Naval in Sai Paranjpye's film - exclaims whenever she is impressed by her loverboy's dialogue-baa
Chashme Baddoor Review by Indicine critic Joginder Tuteja
Lets get it straight David Dhawan's Chashme Baddoor is not actually a remake of the cult classic rather he picked up the basic plot from the original movie and put his bawdy and non sense jokes in between.
