Wajah tum ho suffers because it tries to pack in too many things into one story. There is a murder mystery, a love story, a jealousy angle and minor little other distractions. There is nothing wrong with a movie trying to weave in all these elements if it knew what its main story was and concentrated on that. Here, just when we start getting into the story of the earnest cop trying to figure out a murder committed on TV, we are suddenly subjected to two people dancing on a hilltop.
The premise is interesting. Two men are shown getting killed on TV in the most gruesome fashion and the police try to find the killer. As the case unravels, more and more facts come to light that piece the mystery together till we finally reach the murderer. However, the execution fails miserably. There is a huge amount of predictability in the plot and each time a clue surfaces you unravel the next three parts of the movie.
The actors don’t deliver either. Sharman Joshi as the cop is sort of ok though I feel his clothes were too tight from him. He tries to put on cool “I am so clever’ air and his easy camaraderie with his aide tries to give us some team vibe but it doesn’t really come through that well. Sana Khan as the US educated lawyer spouts atrocious English and drops clothes once too often. Her acting is laboured and artificial. The rest of the cast except for the corrupt are too wooden to be worthy of comment. The child actor reminded me of the irritatingly cloying kids from the cinema of old.
The movie mauls three great songs- ‘aise na mujhe tum dekho’, ‘pal pal dil ke paas’ and ‘maahi ve’. I assume TIPS has the copyrights to these songs and so could just toss them around and waste them so casually in a movie such as this one.
Wajah tum ho will try your patience.If you still decide to go and see it, wajah tum rahoge for your headache later.
