New still from ‘Chashme Buddoor’ looks disappointing!

David Dhawan has apparently remade the original Farooq Sheikh-Deepti Naval starrer with actors like Ali Zafar, Tapsee Pannu, Siddarth and Divyendu Sharma. But has he recreated the magic?

When we first heard about David Dhawan’s intentions of remaking the 1981 classic Chashme Buddoor, we winced. And then our ever-optimistic hearts hoped that perhaps Davidji could make it work. But now we catch a glimpse of this new still and wince…again.

Chashme Buddoor of the 80s could be connected with simple attire, innocent emotions and Miss Chamko. But what’s this? Looking at Ali Zafar wearing a checked suit, a scarf and a topi alongside Tapsee Pannu dressed in a wannabe-Bohemian outfit in no way reminded us of the original. Yes, the style is old world, but no, it’s not Chashme Buddoor.

Maybe we are being unfair by expecting the classic to be remade to perfection. But if that’s not gonna happen, please let’s not call it a ‘remake’.Subscribe to me on YouTube

    Dude, we cannot expect the remake to be any way close to the original. But the stills of this one seem to be funny (to me at least). Let the trailer be released and then we can decide if David jee, Ali, etc have done the good work or not.
