Chehre Movie Review: Story, Performance & Analysis:

Sameer Mehra (Emraan Hashmi), the chief of the ad agency Paradoy, was traveling to Delhi for a business appointment when he gets stuck in heavy snow after taking a shortcut. Unable to proceed further due to a fallen tree on the road, he meets Paramjeet Singh Bhullar (Annu Kapoor), who suggests that he takes shelter in his friend Jagdish Acharya's (Dhritiman Chatterjee) nearby house until the situation improves.

There, he meets Hariya Jatav (Raghubir Yadav) and Lateef Zaidi (Amitabh Bachchan) and is introduced to their daily game. Although initially hesitant due to his lack of knowledge about the game, Sameer eventually joins in at the urging of the other players, including the mysterious house help and painter Anna (Rhea Chakraborty).

However, "Chehre," which means "faces," fails to bring anything unique or fresh to audiences. With the theatres reopening after a long hiatus and the movie featuring stars like Amitabh Bachchan, Emraan Hashmi, and Dhritiman Chatterjee, expectations were understandably high.

While Amitabh Bachchan gives an impressive performance as the public prosecutor, reminding audiences of his powerful acting in director Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury's "Pink," co-starring Taapsee Pannu, Kriti Kulhari, Andrea Tariang, Vijay Varma, and Angad Bedi, the other actors, including Emraan Hashmi, Dhritiman Chatterjee, and Annu Kapoor, also provide valuable contributions to their respective characters. Krystle D'Souza also delivers an impressive performance during her short screen time, while Rhea Chakraborty has little scope to impress due to the weak script.

Unfortunately, despite the best efforts of the leading stars, the weak script may have caused disappointment for viewers. Director Rumi Jaffery, who is also the co-writer of the movie, could have put more effort into developing the script to match the caliber of the actors' performances.
