2. Times of India -

Rating Score -> 2.5/5
Chehre aims to make a social commentary on the state of criminal justice in India. The idea at the outset is interesting, but it stops at just that. The film turns out to be a preposterous courtroom drama that feels longer than any longest-running lawsuit.

Rating Score -> 1.5/5
There’s very little that’s redeeming about this confusing and convoluted thriller. Hashmi and the actors are earnest, but this tiring film filled with boring tropes is no game changer. There are no winners in this film, just a bunch of losers who seem to have lost the game called entertaining their viewers from the word go. Forget justice being denied or delayed, it’s the viewers who feel the burden of this tedious trial and error game called ‘Chehre’.

4. NDTV -

Rating Score -> 1/5
Four superannuated court officials - the men congregate in an ex- judge's sprawling bungalow in a remote, sparsely populated hill station some 300 kilometers from Delhi - arrogate to themselves the authority to play games with the law and an unsuspecting guest. The result is a whiny, preachy film that begins to feel like a terrible trudge even before it has run one-fourth of its course.

5. Hindustan Times -

Rating Score -> n/a
It takes a lot to waste such a gripping premise with poor writing. But director Rumi Jafry's Chehre does just that. The film starts on a promising note, but it soon starts to go downhill. Chehre is so bizarre after a point that even seasoned actors like Amitabh Bachchan, Anu Kapoor, and Emraan Hashmi aren't able to lift the script. While everything might have looked perfect on paper, it just doesn't translate on screen.

6. India -

Rating Score -> 2/5
Rumi Jafry’s Chehre is a film that gives most of its talented starcast almost equal screen presence. Only if it could give them a tighter script, fewer monologues, and less dramatic shayri! And if it could also spare the audience the creepy laughter that Rhea Chakraborty‘s Anna throws everytime the camera pans on her and we are asked to think of her mysterious presence in a house where a few retired law veterans gather to continue to fight for justice in their own weird way! Mostly, by playing a game involving strangers.

Rating Score -> 3/5
Think of 'Chehre' as a thriller with a long monologue attached to it, with the Bachchan baritone emphasising the various ways in which justice has failed us as a society, whether it is rape, acid attacks, or terror. Or think of it as a monologue with a thriller attached to it. Either way, it is an engrossing movie, with Bachchan in fine fettle.

Rating Score -> 1.5/5
Looking at this dream cast, stalwarts with a sprinkling of newbies comprising so many interesting ‘chehre’, you go in with more than zero expectations. But ‘Chehre’ dashes all those comprehensively, because an undercooked, stodgy plot doesn’t a good film make, even with the best ensemble in the world.

9. India TV -

Rating Score -> 2/5
Chehre has noble intentions with a visible motive of making a social commentary on lawlessness, judiciary proceedings and life in general, but it exhausts itself early on. Even a better-than-average cast isn’t sufficient to hold Chehre from tumbling over its faulty storyline. With a stellar star cast and some anticipation with Rhea's appearance in the film, it had the brevity to pull the audience, but what it doesn’t have is a tangible structure to last an hour, let alone a runtime of over 120 minutes.

Rating Score -> n/a
“This decadence of human values and humanity, your honour, has to stop. It must stop,” thunders Amitabh Bachchan as public prosecutor Lateef Zaidi in 'Chehre'. “Hamari adalato me justice nahi, judgement hotha hain, insaaf nahi, faisla hotha hain (in our courts, we get judgement and not justice),” the thespian concludes in his baritone with remarkable finality in a 12-minute monologue towards the end, the definitive highlight of an otherwise insipid and incoherent film.

Rating Score -> 3.5/5
By and large, Chehre turns out to be a cerebral film that would be picked by those who loved Badla. Yes, the constant dialoguebaazi, especially at a single stage setting, may make a few people restless. But those who like to be mentally involved right through, Chehre makes for an engrossing watch.

12. Komal Nahta -

Rating Score -> n/a
On the whole, Chehre is a well-made and well-enacted film with a story which is very different. But it will find more viewers among the classes because of the very nature of the script. Patronage from masses will be limited. The cold title, lack of hit music and limited promotion will also tell on its box-office performance.
