WAJAH TUM HO - The only valuable but indirect message of the film is that one essentially needs to work on Digital Security first before Digital India. (Review by Bobby Sing)

Post HATE STORY 2 and 3, director Vishal Pandya returns with WAJAH TUM HO which is a typical Pandya venture relying more on the forced sensual songs and girls shedding off their clothes instead of the new-age theme of hacking and a planned revenge.

Coming up with a fresh and interesting subject amalgamated with the usual tricks of the trade featuring three half naked girls in three different songs, this time Vishal begins well without wasting time in the routine introductions, but then again goes back to the same old side-romantic track ruining the entire build up and a potential plot of hacking into a leading channel’s satellite and its uploading frequency.

Further he even dares to mercilessly kill not one but three cult songs (two golden oldies and the third not so old one) forming the major part of the soundtrack, that already had a very fine title song by Mithoon. Giving you the details, the team foolishly decides to remake ‘Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas’, ‘Aisey Na Mujhe Tum Dekho’ and the more recent ‘Maahi Ve’ too, which otherwise have nothing to do with the film’s basic storyline in any manner whatsoever.

With the first half having Sharman Joshi as its only saving grace along with the gorgeous Sana Khan, WAJAH TUM HO turns into a completely childish ‘who-dun-it’ mystery post interval wherein we get to witness unbelievably moronic characterisations presented by the writer-director. For instance, in the second half you suddenly come to know that the rich and famous business tycoon and owner of a widely known TV channel (acting so pricey and innocent in front of the investigation officer) was actually involved in a rape case filed by his own young employee a few years back. And on one knew about it, not even the intelligent police officers living in the same city. Moreover post the rape case, the tycoon continues employing the girl’s (serious) boyfriend too making him his company’s chief technical guy (in custody of all important log-in passwords and confidential details) instead of immediately relieving him from the job playing it (logically) safe.

Showcasing an elegant looking, five star kind of torture room airing the live murders on a channel, WAJAH TUM HO has all forced sensual songs barging in every 15 minutes or so, assuming that the audience are desperately waiting for the promised timely sleaze only and nothing else. As a result the film goes into an unrequired over length and prolongs the mystery element too missing any solid meat.

Decently scoring on technical grounds of cinematography, looks and background score, it can easily be called an upgraded B-C grade movie of the present times wherein the makers remain extra cautious of its sexual appeal and elegant look or frames more than the content, script or performances.

In short WAJAH TUM HO fails at many levels including the writing and one of its major drawbacks remains too young actors chosen for too mature roles not really suiting their onscreen personas. Sharman Joshi can easily be rated as the only notable feature apart from the (wasted) title song and the film is just another ‘Product’ made by a company that simply deserves to be ignored and nothing else.

Having said that, it still conveys an extremely important message in an indirect manner, that one essentially needs to work on Digital Security first before Digital India.

Rating : 1.5 / 5
(Less one for irresponsibly tempering and disrespecting the two cult golden oldies)
Final Rating : 1.5 - 1 = 0.5 / 5
