Chehre (Movie Review)

Chehre (Movie Review)

By: Raj Umrani

Chehre Film, starring Amitabh Bachchan and Emraan Hashmi, is an engaging film with excellent performances. The story (courtroom drama) is incredible and full of surprises.

Rumi Jaffery directs Chehre, and it is produced by Anand Pandit Motion Pictures and Saraswati Entertainment Private Limited. The film also stars Krystle D’Souza, Rhea Chakraborty, Siddhanth Kapoor, Annu Kapoor, Alexx. O’Neill, Dhritiman Chatterjee, and Raghubir Yadav. In this film, Bachchan plays a lawyer while Hashmi plays a business magnate. Uncredited adaptation of Friedrich D├╝rrenmatt’s 1956 book A Dangerous Game.

Four retired men gather at a detached house on the borders of a secluded hill station. They stray from the law and an innocent visitor. As a consequence, the movie is snarky and self-righteous, and it ends up being a drag.

Due to restricted vision and the dangerous path, the CEO of an advertising agency falls victim to the cunning quartet’s trap. The disoriented visitor forgets his vehicle keys on his trip to the magnificent mountainside home. You can see he’s in big trouble right away.

As a result, the Chehre film comes off as a pointless exercise in rehashing old ideas about crime and responsibility. Veteran performers are cast as pompous braggarts in a tedious play. ‘Aik Ruka Hua Faisla’ also influenced the picture to some extent.

The country’s law, according to Lateef Zaidi (Amitabh Bachchan), only delivers judgments. To make things right, he enlists the help of retired Justice Jagdeep Acharya (Dhritiman Chatterjee) and former defense lawyer Paramjeet Singh Bhullar (Annu Kapoor).

Flute player Hariya Jatav (Raghubir Yadav), one more terrifying quartet member, fluctuates between smiling and grimacing as if hiding more than he wants to admit.

Sameer Mehra (Emraan Hashmi) gets caught up in it all. He thinks he’s simply joining in on an excellent fireside game with some rum and sangria. The meeting takes an ugly turn when Zaidi and his smart pals uncover a souvenir from his past.

A mystery housekeeper (Rhea Chakraborty) and a silent factotum also live in the home (Siddhant Kapoor). Both have intriguing backstories. They aren’t here to do more. They’re limbs. A visitor’s surprise gift prompts the girl to scream and cackle. When the situation calls for it, the man threatens the dock worker.

Snowfall is accompanied by thunder and lightning. In strange weather, awe sets the scene for mayhem as Sameer fights for his life in the imaginary courtroom. He’s not the only one sucked into the muck. The self-proclaimed judicial pontiff helps him transfer the video.

Because Lateef Zaidi is so determined to follow the game through to its ‘illogical’ end, the film looks for parallels to real-life incidents like gang rape and acid assaults. It allows Amitabh Bachchan to embark on a lengthy tirade, severely degrading the film.

There also do not try to preserve face by arguing for incorrect legal interpretations and applications. The film promotes vigilantism and disregards due process.

There’s the treatment of the two women it finds grudging room for them is similar. In the film’s world, women are either helpless victims or cunning vixens. There is nothing between these two points in the movie, nor beyond them, an unhappy wife (Krystle D’Souza) of a wealthy entrepreneur (Samir Soni). Second, the judge’s housemaid is always available. She is a well-oiled machine, performing her chores with robotic precision.

The four older men of Chehre combine arrogance, self-righteousness, and power.

Filmmakers advocating for extra-legal methods to address the most challenging issues in a complicated society must be highly concerned.

His ‘pleasant presence’ sometimes absorbs the substance, detracting from the film’s limited remaining content. Emraan Hashmi, in my opinion, deserves more than Chehre. While Hashmi has a flawed nature, he does show flashes of genius.

Raghubir Yadav stands out from the rest of the cast because he is content to wait and seize opportunities. He is the most realistic. There is a must-watch film that I rate 4/5.
