Chhichhore, made on a budget of INR 70 crore, is expected to attact more audiences on Sunday. Produced by Sajid Nadiadwala, Chhichhore is the story of seven college friends and also features Varun Sharma, Prateik Babbar, Tahir Raj Bhasin, Naveen Polishetty andTushar Pandey in important roles. It has been compared to Rajkummar Hirani’s 2009 blockbuster film, 3 Idiots, which starred Aamir Khan, Kareena Kapoor, R Madhavan, Sharman Joshi and Boman Irani in lead roles.
However, some critics, like India Today reviewer Vibha Maru, have called it “a missed opportunity.” Giving the film 2.5 stars out of 5, Vibha wrote, “Director Nitesh Tiwari had a subject that appealed to all generations, but he fails to create that magic that a memorable college drama should have had." She added, “Chhichhore is a one-time watch and for those who are still hung up on their college life. But it is no 3 Idiots." The film has also fallen victim to the online piracy website, Tamilrockers, which has leaked the full movie online for free streaming and download.
