Bobby Deol must be getting a feeling of deja vu. Been there done that, still doing it. CHAMKU is another film where Bobby has to train his gun on a target and kill. And kill, kill, kill he goes and kills some more when he is drafted into a government programme. Agree or get killed he is told. Left with no option, he complies.

According to the producers, this movie has been inspired from real life incidents. It's a journey of a naxalite from Bihar. Its blood and gore from scene one. In between, Priyanka Chopra appears with no plot or premise. She easily falls for Bobby and does not deem it fit to find out who he is or from where he comes. Neither does she notice the many bullet marks on his body to get curious. To be honest, it's like a dream sequence within the plot and Priyanka has really nothing to do except look beautiful.



You also see Arya Babbar, Deepal Shaw and Riteish Deshmukh in cameos. But the film belongs to Bobby aka Chamku. Even Irfan Khan seems to have sauntered on the sets. The songs look forced.

Bobby is getting trapped in 'kill roles', Priyanka in 'look good' roles. Irfan is falling into the trap of 'being one of them' roles.

To be honest, nothing works in CHAMKU.
