Director: K Rajesh

The Indian Express rating: *1/2

There's a bit of sunshine in Chor Chor Super Chor in the shape of Deepak Dobriyal, who can make the proverbial sack look interesting. Here, he hangs around a Delhi metro station platform which also doubles up as a mini-shopping centre as a giant samosa. That is, instead of being a Mickey Mouse or a Donald Duck, he is a desi garma-garam savoury, hired by a stall-owner, to lure customers. This is a most edible idea, and perhaps the most original part of Chor Chor Super Chor. Except, just like poor Dobriyal who gets stuck within the huge samosa cut-out, so does the film.

Dobriyal is part of a gang of thieves, whose boss is a principled man.

They will stick to maaroing pockets, and snatching purses, but will not kidnap. This leads to a Delhi-style jhadap (tussle) between two gangs, a botched kidnap attempt, and a preposterous TV reality show, peppered with the standard Jat Dilli lingo, scattered between these chors (thieves) and the police.

Turning the tables on someone usually is a fun thing. But the execution is amateurish, so is most of the acting, even if Dobriyal keeps some of it humming. This may have been a good half hour reality show, perhaps, but doesn't have enough for a full-length feature film.
