Chehre ke Peeche is a low budget thriller, that has the usual suspects in this genre and budget movies, Poonam Das Gupta, Raza Murad, Joginder and some others. Here are the five reasons we should watch this movie at least once in our lifetime.
Raza Murad, Joginder and Poonam Das Gupta in a Movie Together:
Raza Murad and Joginder are basically two film industries together, and adding Poonam Das Gupta to the proceedings makes this a perfect flick to relive the nineties by.
Poonam Das Gupta
Poonam Das Gupta was mildly famous in the nineties for her darebare attitude and movies. No wonder she as quickly and quietly relegated to the B movies. She has not been seen in many movies, so everyone that she is a gem. Enjoy this movie while you can.
The Death Count
Four people die in this movie, all the villains, in something like half an hour, the last half an hour of the movie. The movie literally scampers from one death to another. Rarely has such a fast moving screenplay been written in Bollywood.
The Plastic Surgery
Plastic surgery is a McGuffin used by Bollywood movies to great effect for almost five decades, and has only now been demarcated for use by Ekta Kapoor in her serials. In this movie too, an utterly fantastic version of plastic surgery i.e, prosthesis is used. You need to see it to believe it.
