Chashme Baddoor is loud (like that's a surprise!), shamelessly mind-numbing, and exceeds your expectations at being miles away from logical. Bad performances, awful one-liners, ridiculously thoughtless situations make it even worse.Read more
Chashme Baddoor, a David Dhawan film starring Ali Zafar in the lead. That description by itself is a turn off for most, except, I guess, if you are charmed by Ali Zafar's chocolate boy looks. The trailers take this ahead and confirm that you really have very little to look forward to in the film. To top it off, it is a remake of what is considered a classic from the 80s. Something, not many from that generation would want changed, in the first place - let alone be tarnished to this extent.
I'm not a huge fan of the original Chashme Buddoor from 1981. There I said it. Even so, you just cannot forget the charm created by the simplicity (or even naiveté) of the characters. This is enhanced by the cozy ambiance created by the music, the lack of background score, the minimalistic use of light and camera and last but not the least the homely production design. The subtle satire is completely enjoyable too.
However, the 1981 film had general objectification of women as its basic premise and that didn't go well with me. It gave me the creeps then as it does now. Also, the conflict in the story comes too late. I am all for simple stories that don't really have any conflict but are just interestingly told - like a Chupke Chupke or an Anand. But with this one, the conflict comes so late after a smooth ride that it seems to be forced in.
Despite that, all the things Chashme Buddoor had going for it, Chashme Baddoor of our times seems to be throwing out of the window. As I write this piece, I am trying hard to find at least some thing that might save the film. Maybe we will have a few hearty laughs. It will be refreshing to see a genuine the satire that the 1981 film carried, refitted to our times. But satire has to be subtle and that's not exactly director, David Dhawan's strong suit. The music doesn't seem to have pleased too many people either.
It would be a shame if the only thing going for the film is the group of people, like a friend of mine, who want to watch the film, to see how badly they mess the original up.
But, hey maybe all these apprehensions will be proven wrong. Looking forward to that.

dunkdaft - "After that tacky trailer, the songs assures the classic will be murdered on screen for sure."
IBN Live - "'Chashme Baddoor' as expected does not have a single dull moment and keeps you smiling through and through. "
Milliblog - "It’s a crime that this film has the title of a beloved 80s film; the same applies to the music."
- meeta, a part of the audience
'dum hai boss' goes Seema (Tapsee Pannu) every time Sid (Ali Zafar) woos her with cheesiest of lines. This is just after Seema claims she needs something extra to be wooed. All you can say is 'dumb hai boss'. After this happens a few times, you realise that that's what David Dhawan thinks of his audience. Dumb, of course, not 'dum'!
Chashme Baddoor makes you wonder how low story ranks in this filmmakers' priorities. Situations pop out of nowhere. Even for a "mindless" script, a couple of scenes are outside reason - like a twist in the Joseph-Josephine track or people landing up in jail to arrive at a convoluted plot point. These make the film even more annoying.
Well, the frustration begins from scene one with absolutely painful performances. From Siddharth's over-zealous gestures to Ali Zafar's pretentious dialogue delivery to Tapsee Pannu's cute-yet-flat portrayal of Seema as the film's center of attention - it is one assault on your ears after another. Then again Tapsee Pannu needs another role for an opinion to made about her talent. Divyendu Sharma makes the most out of the supposedly funny lines he is given with some decent timing. Anupam Kher and Bharti Achrekar get to make a fool out of themselves once again. I'd have liked to say that Rishi Kapoor and Lilette Dubey are the saving grace of the film but that would imply that the film has some grace, so let's that be.
I don't know if the performances or the dialogues are more frustrating. The general concept of 'comedy' or 'entertainment' is very lame, making it difficult to believe, how low the standard of humor is. And this is despite rock-bottom expectations.
Shouldn't slapping, as a mechanism to make people laugh, have been out of fashion in the 50s? Scampering, in fast-forward was funny when Charlie Chaplin did it for the first few times. And pun stops being smart use of words at age 10. Even the silliest of silly comedies from the leave-your-brains-behind genre should have gone beyond these done-to-death tools of making its audience laugh. Oh yeah, and their first cousins, toilet and sexual humor. Needless to say, David Dhawan's Chashme Baddoor has the lowest possible form of gags in each of the above categories. Having the likes of Anupam Kher and Rishi Kapoor mouth them makes me want to cry. More so because they try to spoof Sholay's mausiji sequence or enact a SMS forward take on Chak De! India's 'sattar minute'.
For the sake of completeness, I have to mention the original Chashme Buddoor. Chashme Baddoor chooses to completely ignore all that was good about Chashme Buddoor - the simplicity and the satire. Instead, it goes on to make what was bad, worse. For example, the climax is made even more implausible.
Amidst this then, it is interesting that there was some attempt at being different in the way the songs were shot. They are loud and are far from melodious, as expected. But some smart editing and camerawork makes them stand out in this otherwise thoughtless execution. Other than that though, there isn't much they could do. After all, Chashme Buddoor had music from the pre-70s to pay tribute to, whereas yesteryears for current films is the 90s.
It is difficult to decide if my urge to cry was more because of the silly lines or because some part of the audience was enjoying it whole-heartedly. Some silliness is just so bad that it makes you laugh, Chashme Baddoor's brand of stupidity doesn't even fall in that category.
"What else did you expect?" Is a question I have no answer to. What I was thinking while drifting away from the films abysmal comedy though, was this - last week's Himmatwala fell pretty much flat on its face. What will the David Dhawans and Sajid Khans of the world do when in a few years the audience starts wholeheartedly rejecting brainless entertainment?
