Chasme Baddoor Review: CHASHME BADDOOR is a comedy/romantic movie directed by David Dhawan, starring Ali Zafar, Siddharth and Divyendu Sharma. This film is a remake of the 1981, CHASHME BUDDOOR, with the same storyline.
The film revolves around three guys, Omi(Divyendu Sharma), Jai(Siddharth) and Sid(Ali Zafar). Three of them are broke, living in a guesthouse, finding some way to not pay rent. A new girl moves in named, Seema (Tapsee Pannu) and Omi and Jai, being the usual, try to woo her but fail. They are surprised when Jai, the studious guy, manages to get her. And the rest of the movie shows what Omi and Jai try to do.
Performance wise, Divyendu Sharma and Siddharth were the best out of the three of them. Normally you would think that Ali Zafar would be the best, but in this film he had to play an innocent guy. He does his role extremely well but it doesn’t balance with Divyendu and Siddharth’s acting due to their slapstick characters. To be honest, Taapsee Pannu’s acting wasn’t very grand, and Rishi Kapoor’s acting was finesse, as always. Anumpan Kher’s acting was quite comical. If you haven’t seen this Chasme Baddoor, I recommend it strongly, if you want a weak story and a hell load of jokes, with a lot of thought into it!
