Wajah Tum Ho Review by Bollywood Hungama
After having directed films like HATE STORY 2 and HATE STORY 3, Vishal Pandya returns with a decent product in the form of WAJAH TUM HO. He does a good job in putting together the whodunit murder mystery in WAJAH TUM HO. Without resorting to any beating around the bush tactics, Vishal Pandya dives into the subject from the first scene itself. The film’s tight and gripping first half sets the mood and pace of the film. The film starts sliding down in the second half (specifically in the last 20 minutes) of the otherwise decent film. The film’s mystery remains intact and intriguing till the nail biting revelation. The revelation will keep the audiences guessing about the ultimate mastermind behind all the murders till the end. Even though WAJAH TUM HO may not keep you at the edge of your seat, it does keep you intrigued through its run time. Full points to Vishal Pandya for not just having built the film’s mounting suspense, but also for executing it decently.
Wajah Tum Ho Review by Shalini Langer on Indian Express
There is other heavy stuff too, such as bosoms and hairdos, dialogues and ripped off songs, adults who speak mangled English and children who speak nonsense so perfectly, and Sharman Joshi’s abysmal plight. And then there are the murders and rape. The first on live television, in the film’s clever but one suspects entirely unintentional take on the state of TV news, and the sexual assault, in secret, in a garage. Even TV must have some standards. Even if its CEOs don’t.
Wajah Tum Ho Review by Rohit Bhatnagar on Deccan Chronicle
Wajah Tum Ho has so many twists that after a while you start recollecting director Vishal Pandya’s previous Hate Story franchise. The plot of Wajah Tum Ho is complex but the way it is executed is laughable. Once the film is on the verge of unfolding the truth, you are bound to feel that the film is a C-grade version of Hate Story franchise. Cinematography by Prakash Kutty is average and the film looks cheap to the core. The recreation of cult songs Pal Pal Dil Ke Pass and Aise Na Mujhe Tum Dekho will depress you. The reviewer feels that there is not a single ‘Wajah’ to watch Wajah Tum Ho this weekend.
Wajah Tum Ho Review by Rajat Tripathi on Bollywood Life
Live broadcast of a murder is an interesting plot, but not explored much. Wajah Tum Ho rather wastes time in dialoguebaazi, takes too much time to uncover the backstory, and has unnecessary songs. You never strongly feel root for any character in the film. Sana Khan wastes her opportunity. She gets more than two-three super strong scenes to deliver in Wajah Tum Ho, and she fails miserably in each one of those. She breaks down twice in the movie, and you feel absolutely nothing. Despite of being tagged as the most intelligent character in the film, Sia (Sana) delivers the most stupid dialogues. Sana could have established herself as an actress, but probably would only be remembered by filmmakers when it will come to meaty roles. It is tough to decide if Gurmeet is a good or bad actor in Wajah Tum Ho, much like it’s hard to designate him as a TV actor or a Bollywood actor.
Review by Manisha Lakhe on Nowrunning
In a terrible climax, the real villain and the heroine fight with arms and legs and knife throwing and knife pulling out of palm and kicking and punching like it were suddenly a Chinese Kung Fu flick. When the villain throws the heroine against a glass wall, and while she waits to recover from that, the police officer shows up, loses the gun in a fight with the villain, gets beaten up and then before we clap (hoping no more bad dialog from him!), the heroine uses the police revolver to shoot the bad guy dead. Yes, yes, you get to know why the villain is ‘Wajah’ for all these killings. But it is as the heroine says in court, everything in the film is ‘Baseless, logicless and abstract’. You laugh at the police officer’s dialog, you cringe at the skin show, you shake your head at the stupidity of such films and you come away at the needlessness of such films.
Review by Rohit Vats on Hindustan Times
A weird theory is sufficed to back it up and then five minutes before the climax somebody else comes up with an even weirder theory. In between, a couple of ‘item’ numbers do the tricks to keep the B-grade tag afloat. It’s so formulaic that you can actually put your headphones on and still decipher each scene and lipread every dialogue.
Review by Kriti Tulsiani on News18
The film loses you as instantly as it grips you, owing it to the over-practiced dialogue delivery and the forced love-making scenes. The timing is commendable, but the twists are way too predictable. Half-an-hour into the film and you know what is in store for you.
Review by Nihit Bhave on The Times Of India
Rajneish, who changes his name’s spelling in every film, has to realize that the change has to be made elsewhere. Gurmeet flaunts his abs and not much else and Sharman, the only credible actor here, goes a little over-the-top with his enunciation. Sana, a Bigg Boss alumna, is still play-acting for 94 cameras instead of performing sincerely for one. Three of the four songs are recreations of older hits and pop-up dutifully when there’s a lull in the screenplay. The background score refuses to die down and accompanies you throughout the movie. There is no justifiable reason to recommend this one.
Review by Kunal Guha on Mumbai Mirror
Sharman Joshi better have accumulated loans to pay to be reduced to such a film. While he’s determined to extend some dignity to his righteous police officer, more often than not, he cracks. And with dialogues such as, “Revenge has many faces”, there’s only as much he can do. Sana Khan, in her longest screen role till date, is feisty — in a ‘Lokhandwala struggler who has finally got her big break’ way. During a screaming fight with her partner, she purses her lips to put him at his place, “Don’t you shout on me!” The wajah for signing up for this one may differ for each, but the sazaa will be doled out indiscriminately.
Review by Jaidev Hemmady on Movietalkies
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’.
Review by Mohar Basu on Mid-Day India
I felt the worst for Sharman, the only sincere one in the ensemble cast, looking for the merit of his previous work (‘3 Idiots’, ‘Rang De Basanti’). Alas, nothing clicks. Not the dialogue-baazi or Duggall as the constipated antagonist. The vision of Sana and Gurmeet cuddling each other to the classic Pal Pal is any Kishore Kumar fan’s worst nightmare realised. It’s a great watch for those looking for cleavage shots of busty ladies heaving and all. The men aren’t much of a delight in that department — in one scene, a woman sprays perfume on her guy before doing ‘it’. A cue for body hygiene, and also to make better movies that don’t trivialise rape. No Nirbhaya, India hasn’t changed much. We still objectify women — zoom into their butts and breasts to sell tickets. Hope you are in a better place.
Wajah Tum Ho Review by Indiaglitz
Director Vishal Pandya has all the ingredients required to cater his audience except for a decent screenplay and some logical reasoning’s. The movie just keeps going on and on without anything concrete happening in the major part of the film. The songs keep popping up without any wajah (reasons). The erotic scenes are induced only to titillate the audience. A fine screenplay along with some decent actors would have saved this movie from becoming worse to bad. Sharman Joshi looks highly misfit in the role of a super cop. Rajneesh Duggal has a cluttered character to perform. Gurmeet Choudhary is weak and fails in the finale portions. Sana Khan has nothing to display in terms of her acting skills.
Review by IANS on Zeenews
Vishal Pandya’s direction is tacky in parts. His action sequences though well choreographed are not exciting enough to give a teeth clenching, edge-of the seat experience. Instead they are pristinely sterile and unintentionally funny. The music which is full of remixes of old classics is an aberration to the narrative. The songs are well picturised and they are used as music videos to promote the remixes. They break the beat and seriousness of the mystery. With moderately decent production values, the film is well mounted and every department is technically competent. Overall, ‘Wajah Tum Ho’ is a frivolously made film that is churned out from a poorly conceptualised story.
Review by Vishal Verma on Glamsham
Technically okay with adequate production values. The movie is strictly okay in the acting department as well. Sana Khan looks beautiful but she needs to brush her acting skills, Gurmeet Choudhary’s abs make better impact then his acting, Sharman Joshi is fine but he has nothing groundbreaking to do. He is a better actor from the lot but it is sad to see such talent getting reduced. Rajniesh Duggall fails to add anything to his acting repertoire and just repeats himself. Sherlyn Chopra and Zarine Khan provide the required oomph quotient without any complain.
