Movie Review: Wajah Tum Ho

Wajah Tum Ho: Absolutely No Wajah of Watching

It is said that you need a good story & screenplay to make a good movie, but you also need good cast to execute the good script. “Wajah Tum Ho” is exactly a case of a good story but bad set of actors spoil the movie…

Wajah Tum Ho Movie Review“Wajah Tum Ho” tells the story of a news channel whose broadcast is hacked to show case Live murders. The CEO of the news channel Rahul Oberoi (Rajneish Duggal ) is convicted by Mumbai Police headed by Inspector Kabir (Sharman Joshi). Is Rahul the real culprit? Who is the hacker and why is he doing so? , well this is what the rest of the movie shows…

Story & Screenplay by Sameer Arora & Vishal Pandya go the Abbas-Mustan genre of thriller and to some extent they are successful as well especially the last half hour of the movie when the secrets are revealed. The first half show us the gruesome live killings by a hacker, which makes it interesting but the songs slow the pace and hinders the narration. Second half is filled with twists which you cannot anticipate, so in a nutshell Sameer & Vishal is able to hold the story till the end. There are loop holes galore but it can be passed. So the writing was good but could have been better. Too much time is spent on erotic sequences.

It is the lousy dialogues by Virag Mishra which pulls down the script, dialogues like “Main Barsaat hoon mujhe barasne do” are outright cheesy and unintentionally funny. Rather the dialogues take away the seriousness of the sequence. Unnecessary English dialogues have been used to showcase the higher strata but unfortunately it sounds too forced. Overall a shoddy job on dialogues…

The Achilles heel of “Wajah Tum Ho” are its performances, it is so bad that it is not funny. Sharman Joshi as Inspector Kabir is the only saving grace, though he hams as well in some sequences, but compared to other actors he is way better. Gurmeet Choudhary as advocate Ranvir Bajaj is a complete wash out, he looks good only in songs being shirtless and doing erotic scenes, but when it comes to acting he fails miserably and falls flat. Rajneish Duggal as media baron Rahul Oberoi, firstly does not look the part, secondly being arrogant does not mean you have to have a constipated expression throughout the movie, another wash out performance. Sana Khan as Sia the legal advisor, is a complete miss cast, she looks more like a pretty damsel in distress from Big Boss than a legal advisor. Sana with her perfect clothes make up and manicured nails looks more like a glamour doll, who looks good only in songs; she is a disaster when it comes to performing. Rajneish, Gurmeet & Sana should take a break and do some acting course before torturing us further. The rest of the cast also make it worse…

Most of the songs are a rehash of older hits and their presentation is just for skin show and erotic stuff…

Vishal Pandya somehow impressed us with Hate Story 2 but his last two outings Hate Story 3 and Wajah Tum Ho, is bent more on erotic undertones. With WTH Vishal gets his casting completely wrong and to top it the acting by the ensemble cast is more of hamming. Vishal needs to realize that just a good story cannot suffice, to execute you need a cast who can act and just skin show cannot make a movie HIT…

“Wajah Tum Ho” is a case of good premise but spoilt by bad actors and their performance….I will go with One & Half Star….

Movie Rating: 1.5 Stars (1.5 / 5)
