Title Chashme Badoor
Cast Ali Zafar, Sidharth, Taapsee Pannu, Divyaendu Sharma
Director David Dhawan
Seema (Taapsee Pannu) is the shorts-clad daughter of a military official. Papa wants an army-man for a son-in-law and that makes poor Seema run away from home quite frequently. But she only goes to one place: her professor uncle (Papa’s twin brother) and her violence-loving grandmother in Goa. Of course, military Papa is content to leave her there till she is ready to return and meet other army suitors.
So it turns out that the professor uncle is neighbour to this trio of loafers. It is unclear what these three spend their lives doing: it is mentioned in the passing that Sid (Ali Zafar) studies physics and Jai (Siddharth), we presume from his irritating Aamir-in-Andaz Apna Apna act, is interested in acting. Omi (Diveyendhu Sharma) just quotes foolish shayari all the time. Although Seema has no visible attributes whatsoever to warrant such interest, all three of them fall for her. Jai and Omi’s efforts are thwarted while Sid’s (who, the film takes great pains to explain, is different from his kameena dosts) coincidental meeting turns into love at first sight.
Good for him. But his best friends don’t think so. And, just as the couple kisses and breaks for a jig on the beach with a song that goes Dhichkyaon Doom Doom, they soon decide to put a spoke in the wheel and derail the romance. Jai and Omi fill Sid’s ears about how ‘fast’ Seema is (woh Seema jiski koi seema hi nahi) and watch his break-up with relief. There is also a romance between single pub-owner Joseph, who the three owe money to, and their single bleeding heart landlady Josephine (Lilette Dubey). Jai and Omi try to bust this romance too. Why? Don’t know. As a last resort, the film turns to a mildly funny but silly climax.
