Wajah Tum Ho
Cast: Gurmeet Chaudhary, Ranjeesh Duggal, Sana Khan and Sharman Joshi
Director: Vishal Pandya
Bollywood spine-chillers take a predictable and safe route – except for few exceptions. Half a dozen characters are introduced to you, who are used to look into the camera with clasped lips. One of them makes a confession when you really become indifferent about them.
A bizarre theory hits the spot to back it up and then few minutes before the climax a new face appears with an even quirkier theory. In between, two or more ‘item’ numbers do a bang-up job to keep the B-grade tag adrift.
It’s so conventional that you can really wear your headphones and still lipread every dialogue and make sense of each and every scene.
The latest movie “Wajah Tum Ho” is directed by Vishal Pandya (Hate Story 2 and 3). It is one of the films where you can easily interpret that they are about to follow a ‘the-butler-did-it’ sort of theory. And just for a weird twist, it will be the butler’s maid, the friend, or the chauffer, or somebody very similar.
But that’s very likely not enough to make the audience go crazy, so insane pelvic thrusts and heavy sighs go your way. They have “re-mastered” the classics like ‘Aise na mujhe tum dekho’ and ‘Pal pal dil ke paas’ in such a way that you may forget the originals. They must have been extraordinarily confident to wonder that they can alter the composition of these timeless and evergreen songs. Are these songs really that easy to re-master, or the younger audience is totally clueless about the originals? In any of such cases, it’s the terrible loss for music.
Media mogul Rahul Oberoi (Rajneesh Duggal) is charged for showing a live murder on air on his channel. Mumbai Police, supervised by Kabir Deshmukh (Sharman Joshi), wonder they have exposed the criminal and afterwards another killing is telecasted on the channel.
No direct connection between the murders and Oberoi can be created and the person mainly responsible is his legal advisor Siya (Sana Khan). Her cleverness not only lies in flirting Ranveer Bajaj (Gurmeet Choudhary), the government’s attorney on the similar case, but also in giving him a good run for his money inside the court.
You would also hear dialogues in between the court scenes such as ‘Ye case nahi, pyaaz hai’ and ‘Aaj iss bhatakti khusbu ko thikana de do’.
And I second with the first one. This movie is definitely more like an onion. The more you peel it off, the more you will cry….
