Chehre Trailer Review: Amitabh Bachchan-Emraan Hashmi Starrer Looks To Be Intriguing, And It Has Rhea Chakraborty In It
Finally Rhea Chakraborty shows up in the publicity of Chehre. She has just one shot in the  slickly edited trailer. Albeit a striking shot where  she looks  pretty. It’s clear that she plays Emraan Hashmi’s girlfriend as he seems frightened to death by a group of aging men led by Amitabh Bachchan, who seem to have nothing better to do than play deathly games with unsuspecting murder suspects.

The film seems to be shot in a minimalist  environment without song breaks or other diversions. Mr Bachchan holds centre stage as a snarky old man in a menacing get-up who seems  to know more about Emraan Hashmi’s (dubious) character than is healthy for Hashmi. The two actors work well together. The trailer shows them at as antagonists in what looks like a game of life and death.

If the suspense is as well-maintained as trailer  suggests we can be sure that this is one helluva rollercoaster ride in the tradition of Sujoy Ghosh’s Badlaa which too had featured Mr B in an intriguing role. I would have liked to see more of the talented supporting cast in the trailer. There is very little of the versatile Dhritiman Chatterjee or Annu Kapoor. The entire focus of  the cat-and-game mouse seems to be on Mr B and his poor  victim (the erstwhile serial  kisser) who claims his life is an open book.

“Oh I love reading those kinds of  books,”  Mr B drawls.

So do we, provided the chapters are well written. The writing is clear on the wall. Chehre is poised  to be an edge-of-the-seat experience, on your 'mask', get set go!
