Director Hriday Shetty's latest Hindi film Chaalis Chauraasi, which boasts of casting of talented actors like Naseeruddin Shah, Kay Kay Menon, Atul Kulkarni and Ravi Kishen, had created a lot of expectations among the movie buffs. But its ordinary story does not stand high up to their stature.
Chaalis Chauraasi is crime comedy film and stellar performance by lead actors is the major highlight in it. But the movie has more demerits than the plus points. Boring music and badly executed action scenes. The film starts out as a comic caper, but ends with displaying of blood and gore. In between, one can not stop yawning.
Sir Pankaj Suri (Naseeruddin Shah), Albert (Kay Kay Menon), Bobby (Atul Kulkarni) and Shakti (Ravi Kishan) are cops and they see an opportunity to a great future when they are given a mission to pull off. Things take a twist when another cop (Rajesh Sharma) stops their van en-route and takes them as his backup to catch a dangerous gangster (Zakir Hussain).
Naseeruddin Shah, Kay Kay Menon, Atul Kulkarni and Ravi Kishan have delivered wonderful performance and the movie should be watched for their stellar performances. But the Hriday Shetty has wasted their talent. There is nothing much to talk about Lalit Pandit's music. Dialogues are good in parts. Overall, the film can be watched for lead stars.
