Amitabh Bachchan is no newbie to mysteries and Emraan Hashmi is a pro at thrillers. Now, these actors come together for an intriguing mystery thriller titled ‘Chehre‘. Directed by Rumi Jaffery with Anand Pandit as producer, the film also stars Annu Kapoor, Dhritiman Chatterjee, Siddhant Kapoor, and Raghuvir Yadav in prominent roles, with Krystle D’Souza, Kriti Kharbanda, and Rhea Chakraborty in shorter appearances. Expected to release in April last year, the film was postponed on account of COVID and finally makes its theatrical release this April.
What’s Chehre About:
Emraan Hashmi and Amitabh Bachchan hog the limelight in the recently released trailer, where Emraan plays ad agency executive Karan Oberoi who gets lost in the woods in the middle of a snowstorm. He takes shelter in a secluded cottage, where Advocate Veer Sahay (Big B) is entertaining his friends with a real-life game of crime and punishment. Karan joins in and very soon, the game gets too real for him to handle. Meanwhile Veer Sahay seems to be enjoying the discomfort he has put his guest through.
Why You Should Watch:
The trailer of Chehre does not reveal much about the story, which is perfect as the makers would not want to give anything away yet. Yet, it has intrigued us greatly and Big B’s game of real-life crime has us hooked. While the actresses make fleeting appearances in the trailer, we cannot imagine them having much bigger roles in the film itself, as it focusses on its leads and a few supporting characters. That does not seem to be a problem though because both Amitabh Bachchan and Emraan Hashmi completely dominate the cast. They have delivered well – Amitabh as the clever mastermind and Emraan as the confused target. We cannot wait to see what the actors bring to the big screen and how the story itself unfolds.
The second week of April will see the clash of the Bachchans as the Abhishek Bachchan starrer ‘The Big Bull‘ hits Disney+ Hotstar on April 8 and Chehre releases in theatres on the next day – April 9, 2021. So click on ‘Interested’ and stay updated with the latest news and updates on the film.
