Review Friedrick Durrnmat novel A dangerous game is real face behind Chehre ss – Chehre Review: Frederick Durenmatt’s novel is behind ‘Face’

Cinematographer Binod Pradhan, Editor Bodhaditya Banerjee, Casting Director Mukesh Chhabra. It is only on the basis of these three names that the film can be brought into the limelight. Then you add Amitabh Bachchan, Raghuveer Yadav, Anu Kapoor, Emraan Hashmi. The film is guaranteed to be discussed. Now take riya chakraborty, who is harassed by the media in this film, for a small role. Full guarantee that your film will be discussed among the general public. The film begins, looks like a beautiful film. Icy valleys, winding paths, big fantastic C-car. For half an hour, the characters come and the film goes on. As soon as the real story of the film comes out, you remember frederick durenmatt’s 1956 novel ‘A Dangerous Game’. After that your interest in the film ends.

Writer-director Rumi Jafri’s much talked about film Face was recently released on Amazon Prime Video. The film was rejected by the audience in the cinema hall, but not because the film’s actress Rhea Chakraborty. 90% of the film has been shot in the same house. Imran Hashmi, CEO of an ed agency, takes shelter in a house due to snowfall where 4 retired people – a judge, a public prosecutor, another lawyer and a hangman sit at home and play ‘court court’ with the guest who came home and prosecuted for making the guest a criminal.

A super-confident or rather overconfident, advertising world person is caught in the clutches of these old lawyers and it turns out that the CEO of the ed agency has to confess his mistake or his sin. Judge Saheb declares him a criminal. The entire trial is captured on CCTV installed in the house and the hangman waits for his turn to hang the culprit. In Frederick’s novel, the criminal commits suicide, here Imran Hashmi slips on the ice and falls into the ditch.

In fact, watching this film is very heavy. At one point, it seems that if two or three actors of gun nickel shoot each other, the film may end. How interesting the story must have been in the novel is a matter of thought. A judge, two lawyers, a hangman. Friendship has a basic scale. Judges and lawyers are so desperate that we don’t just address each other with ‘why bay’. A servant who has served a sentence in blood stains. It was this judge who ruled him, the public prosecutor and the criminal’s lawyer. The hangman could not do anything to him because he was just sent to jail. There’s also a housekeeper girl. Who also does painting. She laughs like a fool whom she considers to be innocent. She stares at Emraan Hashmi in her spare time.

The atmosphere of the story is fictional, so it’s incomprehensible to be forgiven. Rumi himself has written many hits but how did he miss this time? He has been joined by another famous writer-director Ranjit Kapoor. The two have written stories, scripts and dialogues together. The entire script has a competition for ‘Who will hit the more current dialogue or throw a lion’.

It takes 45 minutes for the story to get from first gear to second gear. Imran Hashmi does amazing work during this time. Amitabh Bachchan was taken to cook throughout the film and he is making the mistake of carrying the cross of the film on his bent shoulders. In one place, he speaks alone for 7-8 minutes and tells the show reel of court decisions in India. The interest was in telling, it was not good to listen. The film’s writer Ranjit Kapoor’s younger brother Annu Kapoor is also in the film. Basically watching and listening to Punjabi Annu Kapoor speaking Punjabi as sardar is like a hammer on the mind. Raghuveer Yadav is seen playing the flute in a new way and gets his talent gone. Riya Chakraborty and Siddharth Kapoor’s character in the film was like house help, it doesn’t matter if it didn’t. What was the need to show the kindness and honesty of the four legal characters?

It’s not that everything in the film is bad. It is important to see the magic of senior and award winning cinematographer Binod Pradhan’s camera. It is a very pleasant experience to see different shades of cold litigants, ice, wooden house and clothes of every character in frames. Bodhaditya Banerjee, a well-known editor of Bengali films who also edited Amitabh Bachchan’s courtroom drama ‘Pink’, is also worthy of praise. The scenes in the film are written in a cumbersome manner so Bodhaditya also struggled to create thrills in the film. They have shot different scenes in different places in the same house and have worked hard to make a relationship between them. A big salute should be named after casting director Mukesh Chhabra. Amitabh Bachchan, Emraan Hashmi and Dhritiman Chatterjee are accompanied by legendary actors like Anu Kapoor and Raghuveer Yadav. Siddhant Kapoor and Rhea Chakraborty have probably found a place because of friendship.

Rumi Jafri has written or directed most comedy or clean films so far. Face is not a film of their mood. These steps were bold though not proved very accurate. The film is boring because dialogues have trashed the film. Amitabh and Imran can watch the film for Hashmi’s performance.
