Mindless humour is one thing, but mind-numbing humour just doesnt work.
So our uniquely novel new film has a story that Bollywood has romanced with innumerable number of times before.
Boy(Tusshar)-Girl(Kulraj R) like each other.
Boy is Rajput, Girl is Punjabi & father of boy(Anupam K) is very strict.
Boy brings girl home under different pretext.
Girls parents also land up.
Father eventually loves girl and wants to meet her non-existent suitor Pappi Singh.
Pappi Singh is Tusshar himself.
Pappi will impress father as we meander towards a Happy Ending.
So when this is the way the story is about to unfold, you really need the gags to be better written. Absolutely asinine humour that tests your patience takes away from some interesting performances.
The first half crawls agonizingly as the caricaturish characters are drawn up. The second half has a few genuinely laughable moments but doesnt salvage much. The problem here lies in the writing itself.
There are definitely mindless films that work, but for that you either need the star power like a Salman Khan or the comic cast chemistry of a Golmaal series.
When you dont have either, you fall flat as riding on the back of Tusshar becomes an ominous task.
Of the actors, Anupum Kher is first rate. Om Puri makes a mark. Tusshar shows yet again that he can act, but sadly, doesnt quite excite as a lead & is more at home in supporting characters. Kulraj looks pretty and does her bit.
Director Samir Karnik falters this time. Though he decided to serve up the same offering as last year, the lack of the Deol family does him in. No soul poor content is on display.
To sum it up, Chaar din Ki Chandni just doesnt work. Though I went in not looking for logic, I ended up rather bored and if it all wasnt enough, there is also a ruined version of Sridevis classic Chandni o Meri Chandni. view less
