Director Rumi Jaffery transports his audience to the world of four retired court officials (Amitabh Bachchan, Annu Kapoor, Raghubir Yadav, and Dhritiman Chatterjee) who play a game akin to a mock trial with a mysterious visitor (Hashmi) who arrives at their doorstep due to unforeseen circumstances. While Hashmi’s character is first hesitant to join, he eventually relents and agrees to play. Although the concept seems intriguing, the film lacks the intelligence and terror required to make a superb courtroom drama thriller. The whole review may be found here.
The main fault in Chehre is that it portrays the trio of Zaidi, Singh, and Acharya as a sort of Justice League – pun intended – trying to punish the wrongdoers for no apparent reason. The law is absolute in this microcosm, even without the trappings of the real-world judiciary. The script’s righteousness is black and white, much like the uniform these guys have worn their entire lives. However, in order to allow the truth to win, they are ready to use devious means to confirm their suspicions, such as examining Sameer’s car and phone without his consent.
