Movie Review: Chashme Baddoor (2013)
The story opens in Goa retelling the old story of three friends, Sid, Jai and Omi. While the latter two waste a considerable amount of resources and energy chasing ladies, it is the humble Sid who strikingly contrasts them. Sid successfully woos the flatteringly pleasing Seema, while his friends are surprisingly left chasing.Taking offense to their loss, Jai and Omi decide to play villains the Sid-Seema’s blooming love tale. Building up to a laugh riot of an ending, the film’s worth every bit of it!
David has made a career out of comedies and at a point of time, was referred to as the successor to Manmohan Desai thanks to the dollops of entertainment he offered in his movies. With CHASHME BADDOOR, David steps into the comfort zone yet again. There’s no denying that the humour he injects in this one is not aimed at the purists, but the spectator of today, who may not be as complaining purely because of the laughs and entertainment it has to offer.
