The new 'Chashme Baddoor' doesn't entirely work because Dhawan appears conflicted between taking the characters on a journey of his making, and sticking to the blueprint of the original film

Loud in sight, sound and sense, this Chashme Battering is an assault to the original with its line-up of gaudy aesthetics, actors hamming to the hilt in boxers and ghastly writing


Dhawan's film is a series of forced contrivances, not a story that grows out of a place and time

Indian Express

The gags are simply not funny enough even if you are game to grant the licence of brainlessness.

The story is quite shallow and with superficial acts it only gets worse

Times of India

A loud and hollow remake of the Sai Paranjpye classic

An irreverent remake that is as much fun as its original


This new film – deliberately raucous, garishly colourful, masterfully kitschy – has such a relentless supply of energy and silliness and PJs that it is remarkably hard to resist


Chashme Baddoor is yet another slapstick affair by David Dhawan and doesn't leave you in splits as it should


Chashme Baddoor goes completely go off the rails in trying to eke out a laugh-a-minute ride by resorting to methods that one thought had gone out of currency with Govinda

It retains the original's madness, masti and movie-mania

Times of India

An entertainer with dollops of humour and wild situations thrown in, this one's a laugh-riot
