It takes a lot to waste such a gripping premise with poor writing. But director Rumi Jafry’s Chehre does just that. The film starts on a promising note, but it soon starts to go downhill. Chehre is so bizarre after a point that even seasoned actors like Amitabh Bachchan, Anu Kapoor, and Emraan Hashmi aren’t able to lift the script. While everything might have looked perfect on paper, it just doesn’t translate on screen.
A Delhi based ad agency chief, Sameer Mehra (Emraan Hashmi) gets stranded in a hailstorm, and four retired court officials invite him to spend the night in their haunted house-like bungalow at an isolated hill station. Little does Sameer know that these oldies enact mock trials with strangers as a pass-time, and they’ve found their latest guinea pig. Reluctant at first, he gives in to their twisted ‘game’.Amitabh Bachchan is the eccentric public prosecutor Lateef Zaidi, Annu Kapoor the funnily serious defence lawyer Paramjeet Singh Bhuller, Dhritiman Chatterjee as the straight-faced judge Justice Jagdish Acharya, and Raghubir Yadav plays the ever-excited prosecutor Hariya Jatav. Together, these four men create a lot of drama, deliver high-pitched lines, but it all goes through major turbulence before they have a smooth landing.
