Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted: "'Chashme Baddoor' is off to a super start in India. North India and Mumbai circuits leading. Even mass-dominated belt very good!"
Said to be made at a budget of Rs.17 crore, the funny drama has been produced by Viacom 18 Motion Pictures. What worked in the favour of the movie is that the director revamped the script and set the story of 'Chashme Baddoor' in Goa focusing on the current lot of youngsters and their life style.

Dhawan's 'Chashme Baddoor' features Ali Zafar, Taapsee Pannu, Siddharth, Divyendu Sharma, Rishi Kapoor, Anupam Kher and Lilette Dubey.
The Sai Parnajpye-directed 'Chashme Buddoor' was recently restored and released with the new 'Chashme Baddoor' on Friday.
