Bollywood thrillers like this is quite predictable! You are introduced to half a dozen characters, which keep looking into the camera with twitched lips! and thriller? Where is the thriller man! Weird right?
At one point in the second half, you realize that a whole chunk from the first half was unnecessary; Hacking is explained in a powerpoint presentation (Like, are you serious?); Several references are made to how a woman who sleeps with her boyfriend should not complain about rape and the big reveal at the end is devoid of logic. Wait for us to explain you more!
A masked man live streams murder of a police officer across all channels of a media group. Sharman Joshi who plays the cop, he is investigating the matter. Rajniesh Duggal, who is the media mogul is brought in for questioning to the police station and is a suspect. Sana Khan is his company’s legal head. And Gurmeet Chaudhary is the public defender and also Sana’s boyfriend.
Kabir (Sharman) picks up the most obvious clues, and thinks he is Sherlock from Sherlock Homes, while delivering neatly written witty dialogues. What the heck?
Sia (Sana) leaves no opportunity to tell that she is good at her lawyer job. But it’s hard to believe that she is an intelligent lawyer who asks the channel’s head if he is watching the live murder streaming across his channels.
The hunt for the real killer, the backstory, reason behind the killings, and the character’s relationships make for the entire film.
Ruining two songs, and two live streaming of murders later, Wajah Tum Ho has successfully killed us in the first half itself.
The film has of some excellent music (Mithoon, Abhijit Vaghani, Meet Bros). Songs like the title track, ‘Dil Mein Chhupa Loonga’ and ‘Dil Ke Paas’ are already a rage all over. The peppy tracks will get you tapping your feet and will get you moving and this is where 'T-series' is best at providing and picking excellent score.
Verdict: We are just giving you all an example of the Court scene!
In between the court scenes, you also get to hear dialogues such as ‘Aaj iss bhatakti khusbu ko thikana de do’ and ‘Ye case nahi, pyaaz hai’.
I so agree with the second line. This movie is indeed like an onion. The more you peel it, more you cry.
Rating: 2/5 (Watch at your own risk! That's all we can say)
