What's Yay: The mystery in the plot which keeps
you guessing till the end
What's Nay: Ludicrous dialogues, Tacky intimate
scenes, Mediocre performances
Popcorn Refill: Interval
The Iconic Moment: *SPOILER ALERT* I can't help
myself from mentioning this priceless moment which left everyone in
the theatre hall burst into laughter. There is a scene where Sana
Khan walks up to Sheryln Chopra and questions her if she is ready
to sleep with a man who is 'supposedly' a rapist. To which the lady
lazily utters, 'Will you pay my bills then?'
Suddenly that dialogue might seem very relevant in your day to
day life! The next time someone casually questions why you are
working on a Saturday when the rest of the crowd is busy partying
in the town, you now know whom to thank for the lines!
Plot: A lecherous police officer calls up a
mysterious man to blackmail him and suddenly finds himself in deep
trouble. He is attacked by a masked person who first beats him
heavily with an iron rod and later broadcasts his murder live
across all the channels of a media group own by Rahul Oberoi
The media moghul is brought in for questioning by Kabir Deshmukh
(Sharman Joshi) who is the investigating police officer handling
this case. Kabir considers Rahul as his prime suspect who in turn
seeks help from his company's legal head Sia (Sana Khan).
Meanwhile, the lady is already in some 'luv-shuv' with Ranveer
Bajaj (Gurmeet Choudhary) who co-incidentally is the State public
prosecutor in this case.
A few dialoguebaazi and a couple of scenes later, Kabir
establishes a strange connection between the murdered police
officer and a real estate magnate named Karan who is Goa's casino
Unfortunately, before Kabir could nab him for some grilling,
Karan meets a brutal end as he ends up being the second victim of
the live murder. Is Rahul the main culprit or is there something
more than meets the eye?
Direction: Vishal Pandya who is credited for
most of the erotic thrillers in Bollywood, tries to blend in some
technology in his story-telling with Wajah Tum Ho.
Sadly, the technical gibberish sounds too ridiculous and the
dialogues end up more as spoof rather than hard-hitting, powerful
ones. Even the intense moments fall completely flat and leave you
chuckling. On the other hand, the romantic scenes are marred with
dialogues like 'Aaj is bhatakti khushboo ko thikana de do.. main
agar baarish hoon toh tumpe toot jaane ki izaazat de do' which look
plucked straight from a 90s book.
Acting: Sana Khan is merely reduced to a skin
show as you can clearly see her struggling with her lines. Half of
the time her character is clueless about what's happening around
her. Isn't she supposed to be an intelligent lawyer?
Gurmeet Choudhary does raise up the hotness quotient and doesn't
miss a chance to flaunt his well-built physique. But that's just
not enough to deviate your attention from his voice, which
strangely sounds a bit weird in the film. TV folks, I need your
Rajniesh Duggal sports a grumpy look and a sneer throughout the
film. Bad boys, I tell you! He is supposed to be a media moghul but
not once in the film do you see him interacting with his team. His
only work is to make a pass at Sana's Sia or else bed some random
chick with a ruined version of old classic song.
Sharman Joshi is the only one who tries to save the sinking ship
and so you have him playing a desi Sherlock Holmes. But then, the
poor guy seems to be high on some stuff or why else would you find
him screeching his dialogues? Thankfully, his sarcastic lines keep
Other Technical Aspects: The bold scenes look
out of the place and forced in the narrative. You wish they never
existed in the first place as they look totally passionless and
exist merely for titillation.
Manish More's editing works in the film's favour.
Music: The songs of Wajah Tum Ho are more like
fillers which the makers seem to have created to push some sex
scenes in the film. The recreated version of 'Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas',
'Dil Mein Chupa Loonga' and 'Maahi Ve' have nothing new to offer.
The title track is hummable.
Verdict: Minus the sleaze, lacklustre performances and laughable dialogues, Wajah Tum Ho makes up for a decent one-time watch only for its thrill!
