Movie Review: Chehre

Read Time:2 Minute, 22 Second

Movie: Chehre Cast: Amitabh Bachchan, Emraan Hashmi, Annu Kapoor, Rhea, Raghubir Yadav, Dhritiman, Krystle Writer: Screenplay and Dialogues: Ranjit Kapoor, Rumy Jafry – Story by Ranjit Kapoor Director: Rumy Jafry Our rating: 2.5/5 Stars (Two and half stars) Official trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-nKW5QfbcMY

Movie is starring Amitabh Bachchan, Emraan Hashmi featuring in Ranjit Kapoor’s story – Chehre has few very good performances the film is a good entertainer.

The film begins somewhere in North India, on a journey through a snowfall, we get to see a very manor-like house with Sameer Mehra (Emraan Hashmi). Due to the arctic weather, Sameer stays in the house with a few retired lawyers, a retired judge, a caretaker and some suspicious looking people.

Lateef Zaidi (Amitabh Bachchan) invites Sameer to join a trial involving his real life. A confident Sameer joins in with Paramjeet Singh Bhuller (Annu Kapoor) representing him against Lateef in the absence of Justice Jagdish Acharya (Dhritiman Chatterjee). The mock trial turns into a serious one and what is Sameer keeping from all is what the film is all about.

Chehre is a film penned by Ranjit Kapoor and is divided into two major halves and only of them manages to hold the intrigue. The very first portion of the script is similar to Quentin Tarantino’s ‘The Hateful Eight’ and the interesting bit is where a stranger crashes into an unknown bungalow filled with some strangers. You now have to know about what they’re going to do with the innocent, smart and successful businessman. There are flashback sequences unveiling Emraan Hashmi’s personal life is the second half you all have been waiting to know about. Th scenes remind you so much of Emraan Hashmi murder dramas but that is poorly executed.

Chehre has good performance because of involving legendary artists such as Amitabh Bachchan, Annu Kapoor. Emraan Hashmi stands out despite the film being loaded with heavy dialogues. Amitabh Bachchan is experimenting with his characters and it doesn’t fit as expected this time. Instead of an all new different character like in 102 Not Out, this one has some shades from Pink and others from Badla. His character follows an interesting Sherlockian method of deduction but is not impressive.

Annu Kapoor delivers his best here and his performance is backed well by his trademarked eccentric dialogue delivery. His character will  contradict Amitabh’s and it’s equally challenging. Rhea Chakraborty is average and overall film. Raghubir Yadav needed more space and his role of ‘Jalaad’ had a lot of potential.

Director Rumy Jafry has written a film called ‘2 Chehre’ (Suniel Shetty, Shatrughan Sinha) way before directing Chehre (2015). Regarding his current directorial, Rumy gets is directing two films in one.

Chehre is a good attempt.

Two and a half stars!

Chehre releases on 26th August, 2021.
