Chaalis Chaurasi Movie Review



Ratings:2/5 Reviewer:Taran Adarsh Site:Bollywood Hungama
To give the credit where it's due, CHAALIS CHAURAASI has an attention-grabbing premise and some truly wonderful scenes, but the writing lacks the energy and dynamism to keep you hooked. If the first half is lackluster, the post-interval portions are marginally thrilling, but the penultimate moments -- the tryst with the terrorists -- tries so hard to be funny that it falls flat on its face. In fact, the finale should've been the highpoint of the film.On the whole, CHAALIS CHAURAASI is inconsistent. It could've done with a better script!

The cast of Naseeruddin Shah, Kay Kay Menon, Atul Kulkarni, Ravi Kissen and Zakir Hussain is enough to carry this non descript drama of Chaalis Chaurasi to dramatic heights, carrying you through several unpredictable twists and turns that you rarely find in run-of-the-mill cinema. The idea is to rob a desolate house off a defunked fake currency machine for god knows what purpose. The plan, the execution is all missing as each participant saunters his way into the trip, carrying with him his little dreams and ambitions, which make Chaalis Chaurasi what it is worth.The plot gets further complicated here as the gang poses as cops in a van to fulfill their dreams to get rich but get embroiled in a real gangster case which gives you some rib tickling moments of laughter and fun. Go, enjoy a refreshing new genre of comedy.

Ratings:2/5 Reviewer:Preeti Arora Site:Rediff
Hriday Shetty's latest release Chaalis Chauraasi doesn't offer anything drastically unconventional. Corrupt cops, petty conmen, the rough-and-tough baddies…we've seen them all. Skilled actors sometimes rescue a film when the script is flailing. Chaalis Chauraasi is one such film.The film which starts out as a comic caper straddles genres and turns into a display of blood and gore. Aiming at an over-the-top climax, the director only succeeds in prolonging the film with amateurish, badly executed action. Chaalis Chaurasi is a one-time watch for its stellar performances.

Ratings:3/5 Reviewer:Martin D Souza Site:Glamsham
Chaalis Chaurasi is a dhamaal entertainer, with suspense and comedy thrown in at crucial moments to spice up the events that happen in one night. At every turn, there's a new twist, sometimes comical, sometimes sinister. To sum it up, director Hriday Shetty conjures up an entertainer which could be bracketed as 'suspense comedy'. The comedy comes full-on towards the end as the suspense builds up to the grand finale. If you are looking for a film to entertain you, this one's definitely a must-watch. The ratings are for the screenplay, camaraderie between the four main characters, the plot which is smartly woven, the suspense and the right dose of comedy.

Chaalis Chaurasi although begins on a very good note with some interesting comic-timing amongst the four male leads in the film. Their unlawful acts as policemen followed by remix of famous song Hawa Hawa is quite intriguing. But, the plot looses threads due to dragged screenplay as soon as writer starts sketching their characters. The plot again gets into form post interval with some interesting twists compounded with a humour leaving one spellbound.Power-packed performances, direction, dialogues are the strengths of the film. Music, look of the film, screenplay are the weak points.On the whole, Chaalis Chaurasi is surely a one-time watch which promises to tickle your funny bone.

Ratings:2/5 Reviewer:SuperGoodMovies Site:SuperGoodMovies
Chaalis Chaurasi begins on a very interesting note portraying good camaraderie between the lead characters. The characterization and the background of the characters is intriguing. The only flaw about the first half is the unnecessary song and dance sequences injected. However, the second half confuses us of being of another genre. The director himself seemed confused if he is making a thriller or a comedy. The climax fight sequence looks utterly stupid and. The makers have tried to put in all the necessary masala and so Chaalis Chaurasi despite of having a talented star cast fails to impress.

  1. the movie is very good...must watch. dont believe the negative reviewz.the movie is not a classic like bodygaurd or ra one(if u know what i mean) so how could it gain a 4 star from taran adarsh

    ReplyDelete
  2. Taran Adarsh gave the movie two stars..
    Why???
    he did not recieve any money from the producers of this movie to give it 4 or 4.5....

  3. Taran...u should really not praise movies like Ra.one and Bodyguard if you wanna maintain your credibility as a critic...

  4. ya its true.taran has digged his own grave..he openly gives films like ra.one four stars and tells blockbuster written all over it..it only shows his leaning towards srk.. What a shame..

    ReplyDelete
  5. Put Salman or SRK in this film and Taran will give 5 stars even though the film will become worse if you replace any of the four superb actors with salman or shahrukh...

  6. Taran adarsh has no sense of cinema that's why he was thrown out of business of bollywood which use to air on etc. he is favourable only to SRK and Salman and likes licking their films. Stop writing reviews taran and get back to something else which u r good at.................. liborius from Mumbai

  10. Totally disagree with Taran Adarsh... he is biased and gives good reviews to those producers who wine n dine him

  11. It wud b an insult if u consider these critics 'intellectuals'.. Only Nikhat Kazmi has got some sense. Guys plz don't get angry upon Taran Bcoz he has already accepted dat he credits only where there is DUE. An average human being can understand wat king f due is dat. Even SRK said Ra One was not upto d mark but he made it nearer to average. But our GREAT TARAN ADARSH gave it 4.5 out of 5.. Shameless dumb sochta hai ki har Indian uske traha dumb hai. Dear Taran, Haddi k liye sirf kutte hi dduum hilate hain. u hav ZERO sense of movie rating, let alone media freedom..

  13. Its a shame all the comments only talk about taran adarsh giving 4 stars to bodyguard and Ra One. No one's actually talking about the movie. This shows the sick mentality of people.

  25. Nasuruddin Shah, talented and real actor always choose a movie which has a sense and depth. This movie has a simple story showing present, in the right time going in past of all 4 characters which is so funny and interesting rather than boring flash backs. In the proper sequence without wasting much tie in flash backs film comes back to the present without anything missing. And real drama begins for robbery of 20Cr Rs which also has some liking with the past. Planning for robbery, funny preparation, over confidence of the success, but uncertain failure during execution and finally a fine end.
    Full of comedy, drama, fun, thriller, action and suspense. Take positively and must watch this movie in theaters.
