Chehre Review: Starring Amitabh Bachchan, Emraan Hashmi, Annu Kapoor, Dhritiman Chatterjee, Raghuveer Yadav, Riya Chakraborty, Crystal D’Souza!
A blizzard drives the wizard of awe far from the realm of conspiracy, against all atrocities and crimes committed against women. He speaks about Nirbhaya and acid attacks, every time they attend a court hearing, women are made to remove the trauma of rape. He speaks. Everyone listens on screen and in the audience.
“No justice only verdict,” Bachchan Bariton sprung up on the big screen, as I was listening and watching, wondering, is there no absolute top for this actor’s aspirations?
The face is a chamber-piece echoing a stalled verdict by Agatha Christie’s 12 Little Indians and Basu Chatterjee discussing the concept of justice within the four-walled range. Director Rumi Jafri has a good understanding of spatial rhythm and close harmony. He allows the movements of characters to be liquid in the range of one-place settings allowing them to groan and shine with secret spontaneity.
The film has been deliberately staged, which is the mood required in the drama of discontent as it flows between four retired patrons of the judiciary who are getting to defeat a stranger who is passing by.
I have to say that Emraan Hashmi has played the stranger in danger with great joy. He brings a winding laugh to his part as an aspiring entrepreneur with a dirty past. While the play is driven by relentless enthusiasm for peeling onions of Bachchan’s survival puzzle, Hashmi manages to catch himself, for example, poor acting by two female artists, allows some shortcomings to be reduced.
It is not their fault. It’s a boy’s story. And male artists come in their roles with the taste of wolves. Annu Kapoor and Dhritiman Chatterjee are pleasantly attached to their characters. Raghuveer Yadav, who played the fourth judicial pillar in the mock trial produced with devastating hard work, is saddened with a humidor character, as is Siddhant Kapoor, the only silent character in this verbose drama.
But it is the powerful Bachchanwho presides over the plot. Legally he is once judged misjudged and jury wounded and warrior.
Oh yes, there’s another superhero in the face. Cinematographer Binod Pradhan shot the film in a striking semi-sepia sweep of rusty eyebrows and gleaming brown. Between them, Mr. Bachchan and Mr. Pradhan make the face a legal drama outside the court like never before. Order, order! Order your tickets now.
