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! *winks*
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 (Rajniesh Duggal).
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 king.
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 thoughts here!
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 you entertained.
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!
