Wajah Tum Ho Reviews External Critics

By Mohar Basu (1/5)

The thought of an empty bus ride home lost its charm after December 16, 2012. I hope you have healed a little, Nirbhaya. It's ironic that of all 200-odd films made in a year, it is 'Wajah Tum Ho', which finds itself in theatres today. The reason I bring up Nirbhaya's story is because the film shows a gangrape - sensational, titillating and handled insensitively. It is graphic and makes you cringe. The men in power, who brutalise the victim, walk away scot-free till her revenge is plotted.

Thrillers can lose the plot, thick and fast when they aspire to be mushy romances too. Trying to shove a little bit of everything into a movie isn't always the right formula. Vishal Pandya's Wajah Tum Ho starts off as a crime thriller, sporadically turns into a song and dance fest and in the end tries to be a suspense story with further twists and turns. With so many confused aspirations, the film becomes a garish hotchpotch, an unpalatable goulash.

Rahul - the prime suspect - is interrogated by inspector Kabir (Sharman) and defended by his lawyer, Siya (Sana). Siya's boyfriend Ranveer (Gurmeet) is hired by the government to prosecute Rahul. The plot thickens (by about an inch) when another suspect is killed off on live TV.

WAJAH TUM HO is a film that mirrors the battle between money and power vis a vis love and emotions. The film starts off with the gruesome murder of a corrupt cop ACP Ramesh Sarnaik. Besides murdering him mercilessly, the entire 'episode' of the murder gets telecasted on GTN (Global Times Network), whose CEO happens to be the highly influential Rahul Oberoi (Rajneesh Duggal). As a part of the proceedings, a sincere Inspector Kabir Deshmukh (Sharman Joshi) enters the scene as the Investigating Officer, who spares no space for doubts in the case.

The writers and director of Wajah Tum Ho are serious about their story. They are earnest about crime, vengeance, hacking. They are equally serious about remixed songs, itsy-bitsy clothing, item numbers, mid-riff baring lawyers and their costume, hair and make-up budgets. A news network is hacked and a murder is telecast live. The channel's control centre head's one astute observation: "I think we are hacked." No kidding Sherlock! Why doesn't the channel switch off the feed and go to white noise? Because the simple answer is not the one chosen by characters in Vishal Pandya's romantic thriller.

Directed by Vishal Pandya, Wajah Tum Ho is one of those films which will leave you wondering what it was by the time you finish watching it. The film is a stale cocktail 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 leading TV channel may be 'Global Time Network', or really 'Global Times Network'. One can't be sure. It may be about empowered women serving as legal heads of media houses, or about what Bollywood thinks empowered women dress like. One can't tell. It may be about honest policemen doing their jobs, or about cruel cops having their fun. One can't say if the film knows the difference.

Bollywood thrillers take a safe and predictable route - there are a few exceptions of course. You are introduced to half a dozen characters, who keep looking into the camera with twitched lips. Just when you stop caring, one of them confesses his crime.A weird theory is sufficed to back it up and then five minutes before the climax somebody else comes up with an even weirder theory. In between, a couple of 'item' numbers do the tricks to keep the B-grade tag afloat.
