Chehre Movie Rumi Jaffrey, who wrote many comedy films in the 90s, has now come as a director with the thriller movie ‘Chehre’ which stars Amitabh Bachchan, Dhritiman Chatterjee, Emraan Hashmi, Annu Kapoor and Raghuveer Yadav.
The film is based on a play by Ranjit Kapoor whose inspiration is taken from the play ‘Deadly Games’. The story is a bit different and despite being a thriller, there is less action and more drama.
Rumi Jaffrey has been a big name in Hindi cinema as a writer. In the last three decades, he has been a part of many superhit films. All these hit films have been remakes of superhit films of South. Dialogue writing is his specialty. His history of screenwriting has not been that fascinating.
The film ‘Chehre’ is his fourth film as a director. He has previously directed films like ‘Gali Gali Chor Hai’, ‘Life Partner’ and ‘God Tussi Great Ho’. Some six years ago he also wrote a film ‘Do Chehre’, although it has nothing to do with the film ‘Chehre’.
The original story of the film ‘Chehre’ is Ranjit Kapoor, Rumi Jaffrey has adapted it according to his film. In the last one and a half years, there has been a lot of change in the interests of the audience during the impact of the corona infection on the entertainment world. He doesn’t even like average movies anymore.
The reason for bringing the audience to the theatres now can only be such films which have something that they cannot feel on their smart TVs. The film ‘Chehre’ is a pseudo courtroom drama film with full emphasis on its dialogues. Instead of a film, this story seems to be a theater drama and this is its weakest link.

Chehre Movie Story
The story of the film ‘Chehre’ slowly tries to make its grip on the audience. The CEO of a big company takes a shortcut to reach Delhi. His car breaks down in a snowstorm and he has to take shelter in a deserted mansion.
There is a retired judge in the haveli. There is a hangman. There are two lawyers. There is a young man who has returned after serving a sentence. And, there is also a young woman doing household chores for them.
Everyone’s stories have met at some crossroads in the past and together they play a game of law with the strangers who come to the mansion. They record it in the CCTV camera and also chase the people who run away from here till the end.
The story of the film ‘Chehre’ is interesting. But, the tight script that should have been written on this story could not be done. The premise of the film’s story is well woven here. It also arouses curiosity about what is going to happen next.
But when the audience has completely focused on the story, the film starts playing games with them. Flashbacks show the CEO’s extramarital affair, then the matter seems to be a repeat of Emraan Hashmi’s old films and the film also starts falling apart from here. As a director, Rumi Jaffrey has been trying to make different types of cinema time and again.
For this, he should also get praise but he is probably unaware of the changing tastes of the audience in the changing times. If he starts interacting with the younger audience of the current generation, it can help them improve their cinema. His direction is like the old school of cinema.
The novelty is completely missing in the film ‘Chehre’. The audience has also seen Amitabh Bachchan in a similar character in ‘Badla’ and ‘Pink’.
The film ‘Chehre’ tries to show its weight in terms of acting. The magic of Amitabh Bachchan’s voice is in it from the first frame to the last frame. In the title sequence, shot under the direction of Kookie Gulati, Amitabh Bachchan tries his best to woo the audience in his magic but Amitabh Bachchan misses out on his natural performance here.
He seems to be acting excessively on screen and the viewer does not even see his character, only Amitabh Bachchan is seen there. The long dialogues spoken in the climax of Amitabh Bachchan dressed in a Latif Zaidi cloak make good use of his acting ability and his voice, but they do not entertain the audience, rather they add to the tension of watching the film.
Annu Kapoor’s performance in the rest of the film ‘Chehre’ is amazing. He gets into his character as a defense lawyer very easily. His style of speaking helps a lot in making his character strong. Emraan Hashmi has also done well here.
But as soon as the story goes into flashbacks, the memories of his earlier films start fresh in the mind of the audience and the film falters the most because of these flashbacks. Rhea Chakraborty not being in the film doesn’t make much difference. She has also not been able to do acting properly.
Yes, Krystle D’Souza definitely managed to leave the impression of her intoxicating and seductive acting. There is nothing to do in the film for Raghuveer Yadav and Siddhant Kapoor, both of them could have supported the film if their characters had been shown with a little background.
Chehre is a film whose feet are still stuck somewhere in the 90s. You can easily find this out from the fun element of the film and the portraits of its female characters. But the endless length of the film makes it all the more boring. The only reason to see ‘Chehre’ is its starcast and we have counted you all the reasons for not watching it.
