As the uncertainty of the demonetization mayhem settles in India, we have two thrillers in the first fortnight of December.

The first was “Kahaani 2: Durga Rani Singh” which has been released and now another thriller is on the way.

Wajah Tum Ho” Hindi movie was released on December 16, 2016. The flick was originally scheduled for release along with Kahaani… but was postponed due to demonetization.

The film directed by Vishaal Pandya, stars Sana Khan, Sharmaan Joshi, and Gurmeet Chowdhary in lead roles

No steamy scenes

The first teasers of the film were released a few days back and featured some of the most explicit scenes. However, the second trailer was devoid of any sexploits and sought to focus the attention of the viewers on the murder mystery which forms the gist of the story.

An intelligent move by the makers of first creating a buzz and then got on to serious business.

The producers of the movie explained the delayed release to the fact that a large part of the viewers was from a rural background and was the most affected areas of the country and faced the brunt of demonetization.

It is not a bold film nor are there any bold scenes except a steamy one minute act. The flick has a strong story line with a thriller element.

A murder mystery

A corrupt and lecherous police official is brutally murdered in a distinctively designed lab in a grisly way, and the whole event is telecast live on a leading TV network. The media goes into a frenzy dissecting the bloody murder to the semantic hair.

Is it all a race to increase the TRP?

Is there a more sinister motive which also has links to a media baron? It is up to an incorruptible police officer to sift through the mystery. Rest you have to watch at the theatres.

Box-office prediction:

Made at a modest budget and mid-level actors, the movie witnessed 20-25 percent attendance in theatres and single screens in India.

No other Hindi film was released today, so the first-day collection is expected to be in the range of Rs 5-8 crores.
