The movie follows Sid (Ali Zafar), Jai (Siddharth Narayan) and Omi (Divyendu Sharma), three friends living in Goa, India. Omi and Jai spend much of their lives womanizing and having a largely carefree existence. This is contrasted by Sid, who lives his life more simply and humbly than his roommates. Their friendship is later challenged when Sid wins the heart of Seema (Taapsee Pannu), a woman that Jai and Omi had been pursuing. Jealous of Sid's romantic success, Jai and Omi pledge to break the two of them apart.
The film has some funny, interesting, mischievous sequences and
characters from the original, which have been entirely
re-interpreted as 'swines of the times'. Dhawan successfully
re-creates those lovely, innocent days of guys whistling at girls
at bus stops, chasing unwilling girls to their homes, and landing
up at their doorstep under assumed identities were all considered
innocuous bachelor bacchanalia.
Divyendu Sharma, who plays Bedi's part in Chashme Baddoor remake, turns out to be the best amongst the lot. He makes you laugh and giggle throughout the film, with his scintillating performance. Ali Zafar blends his internal thoughts with the ideas of the happy-go-lucky chap Sid. His singing skills are added benefits and he has even sung a song 'Dhinchkiyaaoon' in Chashme Baddoor. Southern star Siddharth goes natural onscreen and is absolutely a fun to watch out.
Adding a dollop of spice to the original script is an entirely
unscheduled love angle between Rishi Kapoor and Lilette Dubey.
Lallan Miya (Saeed Jaffrey), who played Rishi's character in
Paranjpye's film would have loved that. Outstanding both, Kapoor
and Dubey make their onscreen romance look warm, cuddlesome and
credible. Taapsee Pannu, on the other hand, too looks cute and does
her part well in the film.
Chashme Baddoor works out well and interesting. It's certainly worth a watch and of course, a must watch for comedy lovers.
