Plot: He knows everything about nothing… and he’s on a mission to destroy himself! He is Chatur Singh 2 Star (Sanjay Dutt), an infamous member of the Mumbai Police Department who, in his career, has been most successful at botching up cases and making a fool of himself. In spite of being a disgrace to the team, Chatur Singh has just been handed the biggest case in the department’s history and of course, this is the perfect chance for him to prove everyone why he is the best officer they have.
Chatur Singh takes off on the secret mission to South Africa and he immediately ensures that there is trouble for all… because he is the biggest trouble of all! His antics are hazardous to health and definitely likely to cause serious injury; he is absolutely clueless and yet he keeps stumbling on all the right clues thanks to a little help from the pretty Sonia (Ameesha Patel). His bumbling mannerisms, clumsiness and of course his ‘super intelligence’ sets off a string of hilarious events which lead to more chaos and confusion than anyone could have ever imagined. The criminals are on the run, with Chatur in close pursuit!
Add to this chaotic fray, Pappu Panther (Suresh Menon), who is Chatur’s right-hand or in this case “wrong-hand” man; he adores and worships his master Chatur, which makes him an even bigger idiot than Chatur himself!
Sanjay Dutt is at his rib-tickling best with disguises and looks which are absolutely uproarious… but he won’t stop at that. So, hold on to your tummies for Chatur Singh’s hitting the theatres soon!
Sanjay Dutt is a bumbling police officer who can never do anything correctly. He is sent to South Africa to get back Ameesha Patel, who is a criminal on the run, in spite of the fact that she was able to flee the prison because of Sanjay’s inefficiency. What happens in South Africa? Find out more in Chatur Singh Two Star review.

Lotus Motion Pictures and Movies And More’s Chatur Singh Two Star (UA) is a comedy-action film about a bumbling police officer, Chatur Singh (Sanjay Dutt). There’s nothing that Chatur can do right as a result of which his senior, police commissioner R.K. Sinha, is always angry with him and doesn’t want to have anything to do with him. Chatur’s sidekick is Pappu (Suresh Menon).
Y.Y. Singh (Gulshan Grover) is the agriculture minister who is exposed in a scam and he gets himself admitted in a hospital to avoid going to jail. His wife (Rati Agnihotri) tearfully packs his bag for him to live comfortably in jail and even she is shocked when he gets hospitalised. Sonia (Ameesha Patel) is Singh’s personal secretary. One day, Sonia’s brother-in-law is kidnapped. Her sister is in tears. The abductors want Sonia to get the minister in the balcony so that they can shoot him. Of course, they don’t tell her about their plan to bump him off. Sonia seduces Y.Y. Singh in a sexy saree and manages to lure him into the balcony where he is shot dead even as Chatur Singh and Pappu are guarding him outside the hospital room. Sonia is blamed for the murder and is jailed.
Soon, Sonia escapes from prison with assistance from the abductors of her brother-in-law. Chatur Singh and his dumbness come in handy for Sonia to flee. She is then forced by the kidnappers to go to South Africa to settle scores on their behalf with Golu Gulfam whose identity is not known. As luck would have it, Chatur Singh is sent to South Africa to trace criminal Sonia and get her back. Y.Y. Singh’s widow is instrumental in sending Chatur Singh to South Africa as she has now succeeded her late husband as agriculture minister.
What happens in South Africa? Who is Golu Gulfam? Does Chatur Singh’s dim-wittedness rake him anywhere close to doing something constructive or does he remain a liability for the police force there too? What is Mrs. Singh’s role in the entire drama?
Chatur Singh Two Star Review – Script Analyis
The film has an absurd story line which is devoid of any logic whatsoever. Rumi Jaffery’s screenplay is truly pathetic so that the comic scenes are far far from being funny. Jokes and light scenes are so childish that they don’t even evoke a half-smile, leave alone laughter or guffaws. The comedy is of the kind which may, frankly speaking, not even make idiots or brain-dead people laugh. For some strange reason, Chatur Singh keeps referring to himself as a detective although he is a police inspector. The behaviour of the police commissioner is worse than an imbecile’s. Scenes have just been pieced together without any connection or concern for continuity. Even the dialogues, penned by Sai Kabir, lack the punch and, therefore, fall flat like the drama. In short, the comedy part of the film seems more like a tragedy because it challenges even an average person’s intelligence and tests the viewer’s patience.
Chatur Singh Two Star Review – Star Performances
Sanjay Dutt is terrible in the title role. He looks terrible, dresses up like an idiot and acts so foolishly that this could easily go down as his worst performance. Ameesha Patel is at least earnest in whatever she does but given the poor script, there’s little she is able to do. Anupam Kher overacts as if there would be no tomorrow. Satish Kaushik shines in comedy. Gulshan Grover is alright in a brief role. Rati Agnihotri’s acting is fair. Ganesh Yadav performs well. Suresh Menon gets inanely foolish scenes to perform but is, okay performance-wise. Vishwajit Pradhan, Shashi Kiran, Sai Kabir, Arun Verma, Shakti Kapoor, Sanjay Mishra, Murali Sharma, Shiva and the others lend average support.
