After erotic thrillers Hate Story 2 and Hate Story 3, Vishal Pandya is back with Wajah Tum Ho, which claims to be a crime thriller, but has enough sleaze to qualify as an 'erotic thriller' like his aforesaid films. However, will his third outing be successful or bite dust? Read on…
A vigilante kills a corrupt cop and airs the act on live television after hacking the system of a renowned television channel headed by Rahul Oberoi (Rajniesh Duggal). When ACP Kabir Deshmukh (Sharman Joshi) starts investigating the case with the help of a consulting lawyer Ranveer Bajaj (Gurmeet Choudhary), things get complicated when Oberoi is defended by his company's legal head Siya (Sana Khan), who is also dating Ranveer.
If that was not enough, the vigilante seems to always be a step ahead of the investigators, a fact which confounds Kabir and his team. Will Kabir manage to apprehend the vigilante in time before the body count rises?
Sana Khan looks easy on the eyes, but cannot act to save her life, while the male leads Rajniesh and Gurmeet ham it like no tomorrow. Sharman seems to be hitting the gym lately and that has inspired him to adopt a 'Salman-like' swagger, which comes across as way too fake.
To be fair to the makers, the first half of the film seems promising enough and despite the presence of unnecessary songs, Wajah Tum Ho seems like a spicy whodunit. However, it is in the second half that the pot goes downhill with a steady pace. In addition to making the plot quite contrived, the makers also blundered by making their actors state the obvious for the benefit of the audience, which is a major put off.
If that was not all, some of the dialogues are not only unintentionally funny, but also grammatically incorrect- in one scene, Siya, who is supposedly a law graduate from Massachusetts, tries to poke holes in the prosecution's theory by declaring that her opposing counsel's arguments are 'logic-less'.
Filmmakers should learn that merely inserting scenes showing the lead pair making out and women prancing around in short dresses are not enough to salvage a film if the plot does not get a serious treatment.
I am sure our readers have got an idea about what is in store for them if they ever opt for watching this fare. Needless to say, there is absolutely no 'wajah' to endue this film…
