Cast: Ali Zafar, Siddharth, Taapsee Pannu, Divyendu Sharma

Direction: David Dhawan

Rating: ***

‘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.

Omi (Divyendu Sharma), Jai (Siddharth) and Siddharth (Ali Zafar) are three close friends who fall for the same girl. While the other two are just looking to have fun, Siddharth is genuinely in love with the new next door neighbor. Omi and Jai decide to play villains when they realize that their best friend has managed to win over the girl that they both had set their eyes on. Confusion and misadventures ensue as we try to figure out a way to get the lovers back together.

‘Chashme Baddooor’ cannot boast of any smart writing, the comedy is mostly situational. The plot seldom digresses from the point except to include the sub-plot about Joseph (Rishi Kapoor) - Josephine (Lillete Dubey) romance. The problem, however is that the side story is not strong enough to contribute either substantially to the narrative or to provide any extra laughs.

The performances are strictly okay except Anupam Kher who in a double role is twice as much fun as the rest of the actors put together. The music too doesn’t really make an impression except the ‘Har ek friend kamina hota hai’ song which is quite a catchy number. David Dhawan’s humour is slapstick but never cringe-worthy. ‘Chashme Baddoor’ is definitely a fun watch.
