Rating: 3/5 ✴✴✴
Cast:Sharman Joshi, Sana Khan, Rajniesh Duggall and Gurmeet Choudhary
Directed by Vishal Pandya, Wajah Tum Ho is one of those films which will leaveyou wondering what it was by the time you finish watching it. The film is a stalecocktail of lust, betrayal, revenge and vengeance. Barring Sharman Joshi, no one seems to be even trying to act. Wajah Tum Ho could have been a better film on cyber crime but by the time the film picks up pace, it is too late.
The story begins with the mysterious murder of ACP and its telecast on the nation’s biggest television network Global Times Network (GTN). Kabir Deshmukh (Sharman Joshi), an honest Mumbai cop, starts his investigation and accuses Rahul Oberoi (Rajneish Duggall), CEO of GTN for the murder. Siya (Sana Khan), Rahul’s legal advisor assures of his safety but Kabir is adamant about proving Rahul guilty in court. Lawyer Ranvir Bajaj (Gurmeet Choudhary helps Kabir in sending Rahul Oberoi behind bars. But is Rahul actually guilty of murdering ACP or is someone else using his channel to destroy him?
This is what Wajah Tum Ho is all about.Despite the steamy sequences which have the characters clad in satin lingerie in the trailer, the film doesn’t have a lot of skin show.
Except for its abrupt songs, Wajah Tum Ho has nothing sleazy to offer. The film was wrongly marketed as erotica and the songs have been used a promotional tool to pull the audiences to the theatres. Zarine Khan (Mahi Ve) and Sherlyn Chopra (Dil Main Chupa Loonga) try enough to woo the viewers by undressing themselves but one can’thelp but laugh at the pointlessness of their actions in most of the scenes.
There’s a scene in which Sana confronts Sherlyn and soon after the latter shows off her assets in a swimming pool which will make you cringe.The acting by the lead cast is a yawn fest. Just one-film-old Sana Khan, leaves you infuriated with her dreadful facial expressions. It also looks like Zarine Khan and Sherlyn Chopra (guestappearances) are sailing in the same boat. After debuting with Jai Ho opposite Salman Khan where she hardly acted,
Sana seems to be way offthe mark. Her glamorous dialogue delivery style especially in the intense scenes turns out to be comical. Gurmeet Choudhary and Rajneish Duggal are terrible. They really need to join some acting school. Sharman Joshiis the only saving grace in the film and somewhat lives up to expectations. There are unnecessary songs in the filmwhich have no sync with the narrative of the story except the romantic songs featuring Sana and Gurmeet.
Wajah Tum Ho has so many twists that after a while you start recollecting director Vishal Pandya’s previous Hate Story franchise. The plot of Wajah Tum Ho is complex but the way it is executed is laughable. Once the film is on the verge of unfolding the truth, you are bound to feel that the film is a C-grade version of Hate Story franchise.Cinematography by Prakash Kutty is average and the film looks cheap to thecore.
The recreation of cult songs Pal Pal Dil Ke Pass and Aise Na Mujhe TumDekho will depress you. The reviewer feels that there is not a single ‘Wajah’ to watch Wajah Tum Ho this weekend.
