Mere presence of Naseeruddin Shah, Kay Kay Menon, Atul Kulkarni and Ravi Kishan in a film had raised expectations of high tension entertainment, and it does, albeit to some extent in Chaalis Chauraasi. Chaalis Chaurasi has a talented cast of this foursome, who by their sheer brilliance save the otherwise sloppy script. Albert (Kay Kay Menon) is a car thief, Bobby (Atul Kulkarni) is a bar singer, Shakti (Ravi Kishan) is a drug peddler and Pankaj (Naseeruddin Shah) a former English professor fallen on hard times happen to come together. Pankaj aka Sir comes up with a plan to rob Rs. 20 crores. He knows the place, and has some information about two men guarding it. They decide pull off a robbery in the guise of police.

Chatur Singh Two Star - movie review
Chatur Singh Two Star is based on a novel, titled Chalak Jasoos by M. Raza. The only admirable thing in this film Chatur Singh Two Star is the outstanding cinematography which captures the attractive, wonderful locales of Cape Town in South Africa. All characters try their best and end up indulging in buffoonery. The punches and jokes do not appeal at all. There is nothing like a story in this film. Just unsuccessful attempts to pack one joke after another. Chatur Singh 2 Star enacted by Sanjay Dutt is a police officer always ending up botching up cases and making a fool of himself. He is a disgrace to the Mumbai Police Department. Inspite of making a mess of almost every case handed to him, Chatur Singh has just been handed the biggest case in the department's history. This is a perfect chance for him to prove everyone why he is the best officer they have. A corrupt polit ....
