Chhichhore: Fun film with a message

Nitesh Tiwari (of Dangal fame) has delivered an entertaining film, with a wonderful message, that will appeal to audiences of all age groups. Overall, Chhichhore has all the makings of a hit film.

Chhichhore argues that you learn life’s precious lessons outside the classroom. Comparisons with 3 Idiots, Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar and even Student of the Year (minus the gloss) is expected and you can find a few similarities. However, the film is still different and the cleverly written dialogues and one-liners will leave you in splits often. The film will make you laugh as well as cry and will definitely take you on a nostalgia trip. The climax of the film is really nice.

So do watch the film and go on a nostalgia trip, while learning a thing or two about life!


The movie is the journey of a group of friends from their university days right up to their middle-ages as they embark on their own separate ways.

The film is all about its characters, frankly, and the hoops they’re made to jump. In them you’ll likely find traces and memories of your own youth. I’m going with three-and-a-half out of five for Chhichhore; it’s good, harmless fun. I had a big smile plastered on my face throughout, and I think you will too.

Dangal director Nitesh Tiwari is in top form yet again. Has several brilliant moments. Three aces: Emotions, humour, finale. Sushant, Shraddha, Varun excel. Could’ve done with shorter run time.

The one-line pitch for Chhichhore would be Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar meets 3 Idiots meets Student of the Year. Chhichhore encapsulates all of this. Director Nitesh Tiwari creates a cocktail of nostalgia, relationships, family drama and on-the-nose messaging that wobbles precariously but eventually it lands. You walk away wanting to be friends with some of these characters – especially Varun Sharma’s Sexa, who I think deserves his own spin-off film. Chhichhore allows us to revisit that first flush of youth. The film never matches the the inspired grunge vibe of In Which Annie Gives it Those Ones (1989) or the magic of Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar. But it’s a satisfying journey back to woh din!

Ratings:.1.5/5 Review By: Shalini Site: Indian Express
With a very confused idea about who or what means a ‘Loser’, and a very fixed 3 Idiots template on what means a crowd-pleasing college-life, director-writer Nitesh Tiwari follows up on his super-successful Dangal with a disappointing Chichhore.

Ratings:.3.5/5 Review By: Ronak Site: Times Of India
‘Chhichhore’ has a relevant message on the inherent attitude towards academic success and failure that will connect with many youngsters and parents of today. It tells you that the journey is far more important than the destination and that losing is as critical a life lesson as winning. The film scores high on many accounts and is certainly worth watching.
