  •  Times of India -srijana mitra das rating-7
CB's boy-band impresses with consistent acting. With his silky sleaziness, Sharma often steals the show while Siddharth's comic rhythm is a revelation. Zafar is endearing with his clenched-jaw charm, graceful as he dances, cute as he romances and rather hot when he throws a punch or two

  •  Bollywood Hungama -taran adarsh rating-7
It's raining remakes! RANGREZZ. HIMMATWALA. Now CHASHME BADDOOR. I've often been asked, is there a paucity of ideas in Bollywood? Why do dream merchants opt for remakes? Why not inventive concepts? Additionally, a lot of cineastes strongly feel classics should not be tampered with.

  •  NDTV -saibal chatterjee rating-4
Don’t judge a film by its poster, a bright spark on the screen reminds the audience rather helpfully. We know, buddy. But what if the book turns out to be worse than the cover?

After a short hiatus, Bollywood's King Of Comedy David Dhawan is back to re-create the magic of an old tale with his latest release Chashme Baddoor, that features Ali Zafar, Siddharth, Divyendu Sharma, Taapsee Pannu in the leads

  •  Daily Bhaskar -mayank shekar rating-2
If news reports that quote unnamed sources are to be believed, director Sai Paranjpye (Katha, Sparsh) who made the original Chashme Buddoor has been mighty pissed for months with the production of this picture, not so much for the fact that it’s a remake of her 1981 film

  •  zee news -ananya bhattacharya rating-6
David Dhawan’s version of ‘Chashme Baddoor’ sure takes inspiration from the original, but goes light on the serious parts of the first one. Here, tragedy is dealt with in a comical manner, moulding the film into a veritable laugh riot. Sajid-Farhad’s dialogues are extremely laudable and every

  •  koimoi -mohar basu rating-6
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,

  •  Indian Express -shubra gupta rating-4
Half an hour into the film, I was in danger of actually likingChashme Baddoor. The three boys were strenuously playing their parts, which ran on the expected 'ladki- pe- line-maarna and- juvenile-jokes- crack karna' tracks

  •  DNA -tushar joshi rating-5
David Dhawan’s filmography reads like a report card of a student who bunked his classes but came out with flying colors. So when the guy who made double entendre dialogues and khatiya songs his USP remakes a cult film there might be a reason to worry!

  •  Rediff -sukanya verma rating-3
Either a) a filmmaker wants to recreate the success of the original or b) wants to better it so that it gets the due it never did or c) because he wants to remind the audience its forgotten virtues

  •  IBN -rajeev masand rating-5
Like a battering ram, David Dhawan's puerile and frenzied remake, 'Chashme Baddoor', shatters and mauls your memories of Sai Paranjpye's charming original. Light-hearted humour and innocent romance makes way for sexist jokes and cheesy puns and the merits of keeping things simple
