Chatur Singh Two Star Hindi Movie Review
Call it sheer friendship sakes or major money being offered, film celebs often end up making exceptions in the films they chose and come up with a below standard affair. Sanjay Dutt's Chatursingh Two Star can be called one such film. From the filmmaker who last made Nehle Pe Dehla with Sanjay Dutt and Saif Ali Khan comes this comic caper with meagre publicity and a dated look. With Not A Love Story which is making way to headlines every single day owing to the controversies surrounding it, the box-office fate of this film seems in doldrums.
As the tag line suggests, Chatursingh is a dimwit cop who knows everything about nothing. Wherever he goes he causes mayhem and destruction by his sheer stupidity. Every cop runs away by the sight of him and even his senior wants to get rid of him. But by pure chance he lands himself into one of the biggest cases that of Agricultural minister YY Singh's (Gulshan Grover) murder. The prime suspect in that is YY Singh's secretary Sonia (Ameesha Patel). In order to catch the killer, Chatursingh takes off on a mission to South Africa. How he causes mayhem wherever he goes with his antics and foolhardy is what the film is all about.
The least you say about Chatursingh the better as in a long time a film as shoddy and absurd as Chatursingh has made it to celluloid. It is devoid of any reason to watch it. Not only is the script headless and directionless but even the screenplay and dialogues are second-rate. It's actually a plight of the cinegoers to see their superstar Sanjay Dutt, who's given innumerable hits in the past and has wooed young and old, doing a sham such as this. Not only he seems disinterested in the project but his appearance too is very tacky, old and haggard. Throughout the film he has big eye bags below his eyes and a paunch on his belly making him look really old. If Sanjay Dutt was bad then Ameesha Patel is unbearable. She too comes across as a sagging old woman desperately trying to clutch to the last stage of her acting career in the film industry. Her item song in the film where she wear a raunchy red sari with deep red lipstick smudged on her lips, she looks as tacky as she could ever be.
Even the side-kicks like Suresh Menon, Satish Kaushik, Shakti Kapoor and Anupam Kher fail to make anyone laugh and ham almost in the entire film. Even the music of the film is below average. It's out of sheer angst for having wasted 2 and a half hours of mine do I say this and Chatursingh indeed would remain as one of the terrible films Sanjay Dutt has worked on.
Over all, Chatursingh Two Star fails miserably and would best be avoided. Watch any other Sanjay Dutt's comedy film instead.
