WITNESS HISTORY : Original and Remake Version of Chashme Baddoor Releasing on Same Day

Tomorrow on 5th April 2013 we would witness an event which is unique, controversial and one of its kind in the history of Indian Cinema ,Original Chashme Buddoor  by Gul Anand and its remake Chashme Baddoor directed by David Dhawan are releasing on the same day.

People from Industry however showed their concerns via tweets on twitter

Filmmaker Sanjay Gupta slammed Jayshree Makhija, the co-producer of the 1981 film Chashme Buddoor, for releasing the original digitally-restored film on the same day as David Dhawan's remake.

'Old Chashme Baddoor has been digitally remastered and releasing next week I heard. Kya yaar? What about the new one then? Makhija family sells the remake rights of Chashme Baddoor and then remasters n releases the original just ahead of the remake. Remasterplan,' he tweeted.

'Poor Gul Anand, the nicest producer I've ever known must be turning in his grave over what his inheritors are doing with Chashme Baddoor. I can totally understand Sai Paranjpe feeling totally betrayed by the Makhija family over their parasitical behavior on Chashme Baddoor,' he added.

But that's not all.

'Studio buys it, makes it, promotes it n they come outta nowhere to release it the same day. Studio should take legal action. But having personally dealt with Mrs. Makhija this comes as no surprise. Ethical business practise and her are poles apart,' he added further in a reply to Ekta Kapoor.

The remake version, directed by David Dhawan, and the original digitally-restored film both release on April 5, 2013


  1. The concept of 3 friends has been quite popular in Hindi films. Some finest examples of it are Dil Chahta Hai, 3 idiots and recently Pyar Ka Punchnama. Somehow, it works this time too. Chasme Baddoor, this week, is not extraordinary but it is good enough for a time pass.

    Let me introduce you to the characters here. A poetic kamina (Divyendu Sharma), a filmy kamina (Siddharth) and the last one (Ali Zafar) is not actually a kamina. All three of them trying on the same girl (Taapsee Pannu). The girl finally falls for Ali Zafar. The other two jealous friends try to bring in the complications between the couple and finally make up for their mistakes in the end. . And there are a few more characters to entertain you there: Rishi Kapoor and Lillete Dubey, two of the singles in their 50’s, and Anupam Kher in a double role.

    David Dhawan is certainly not in best of his forms but he does not even disappoint you. You can definitely expect some brainless comedy here. Those dialogues, especially by Divyendu Sharma, were hilarious. Some would call it idiotic or stupid but Chashme Baddoor surely made me laugh on several occasions.

    The trio worked for David Dhawan. Ali, Siddharth and Divyendu, all were exceptionally well. The pick for me was definitely Divyendu. He has got a lot of talent to showcase.
    Anupam Kher, Rishi Kapoor and Lillete Dubey were good. Taapsee Pannu just got overshadowed by the trio.

    Go watch Chashme Baddoor with your chuddy buddy(ies), you may come out of the theatre with a smile. And that’s what we all need from a movie, Entertainment!
