Restricted thrillers (read thrillers where most of the plot takes place in a confined space) have an idiosyncratic charm. While many such films have appeared in Hollywood, as well as in European and Asian cinema, Bollywood has not really been able to fully take advantage of the sub-genre. The only ones that come to mind are 1969’s Ittefaq, 1999’s Kaun, and 2016’s Neerja. Now, with cinemas across the country and especially in Maharashtra and the south not yet operating at full capacity, and the industry faces some one of its biggest hurdles (and I’m not just referring to the COVID-19 pandemic, I’d rather not). deviate from review), Amitabh Bachchan and Emraan Hashmi’s Chehre arrive to make their mark as a thriller in this mold.

What is it about

After announcing the famous Sameer Mehra’s (Emraan Hashmi) car accidents in a remote location on the way to Delhi in a snowstorm, he is invited to seek refuge in a palatial house that houses four retired men: former chief prosecutor Lateef Zaidi (Amitabh Bachchan), former lead defense attorney Paramjeet Singh Bhuller (Annu Kapoor), former judge Jagdish Acharya (Dhritiman Chatterjee), and former executioner Hariya Jatav (Raghubir Yadav), along with their caretakers Aana (Rhea Chakraborty) and Joe Chakraborty (Siddhanth Kapoor), who collectively drag him into a sinister game.

Check out the trailer for Chehre below:

What heat

The first half of Chehre is actually quite engaging, with absorbing story arcs and crisp, hidden dialogue that grabs your attention. And as the script and direction move forward, Emraan Hashmi, Amitabh Bachchan, and Annu Kapoor (in that order) focus their expertise to keep us remotely interested in the proceedings, with decent support from Dhritiman Chatterjee, Raghubir Yadav (both expected), Rhea Chakraborty and Siddhanth Kapoor (both unexpected).

What not

Both Rumy Jafry’s script (co-written with Ranjit Kapoor) and directing fail badly in the second half, and the last half hour seems almost cartoonish, without the help of Binod Pradhan’s poor visual effects and amateur camera work, which Together, they destroy any possibility of creating a moody atmosphere in the prohibited location. Bodhaditya Banerjee’s endless and unimaginative editing skills are no better than Krystle D’Souza’s atrocious acting skills, which her handsome looks can hardly compensate for. Chehre’s biggest drawback is how his main point, when revealed, seems flippant and stuffy for no reason, and how the plot is coerced into believing that the retired leads are holier than you, when they all appear. after that point they are senile dogs of justice, unable to let go of their glorious past. Also, credit to Emraan Hashmi, Amitabh Bachchan, Annu Kapoor and even Rhea Chakraborty for rehearsing such poorly written roles so well.

BL verdict

If it weren’t for the performances and the first half, Chehre would have had almost nothing going for him. I go with 2.5 out of 5 stars.
