Original vs Remake: Chashme Baddoor set to clash

Bollywood off late seems to be making remakes of the yesteryear movies. It tasted success with ‘Agneepath‘ But it is back with 2 more remakes Himmatwala and Chashme Baddoor. Everyone says that the original and remake should never be compared but that is about to change.

On April 5th , the makers of the original movie “Chashme Budduur” are planning to re release the iconic classic movie. They are planning to release the original on the same day when its remake is releasing.

Confirming the news “Earlier we had decided to release it one week ahead and then decided to do it on the same day because the buzz will be maximum during that time,” said Shiladitya Bora, head of Director’s Rare, an alternative programming wing of the PVR multiplex chain.

When asked about the competition the remake will face, Bora said “It would be unfair to compare the two films because the original “Chashme Buddoor” opens in limited release for a niche audience unlike Dhawan’s remake. Last year we re-released Kundan Shah’s 1983 film “Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro”  which got a good response, encouraging us to attempt more re-releases”.

The new movie is directed by David Dhawan and it stars Ali Zafar, Sidharth, Divendhu Sharma and new comer Taapsee Pannu.
