The leading TV channel in the film maybe ‘Global Time Network’, or really, ‘Global Times Network’. No one appears tobe sure. The movie may be about empowered women serving as legal heads of mediahouses, or about what Bollywood believes makes an empowered woman (think Ganeshpuja, stilettos, dinner dates and a violin, all in a day’s work). One can’ttell. It may be about honest policemen doing their job, or about policemenhonestly thinking that job begins with beating people up. None knows thedifference, or cares.
But really, that is not to say Wajah TumHo isn’t serious about its stuff. Why, the film spends at least 10 minutes explainingto keen grown-ups how TV transmission works and how hackers operate, down tothe need to use “high-speed Internet”.
There is other heavy stuff too, such asimposing bosoms and hairdos, weighty dialogues and ripped-off songs, adults whospeak mangled English and children who speak perfect nonsense, and SharmanJoshi’s abysmal plight (he reaches too late for even a sexual romp).
And then there are the murders, a rape,and an investigation. The murders happen on live television, in the film’sclever but one suspects entirely unintentional take on the state of TV news.The investigation is almost live too, for Joshi’s Kabir Deshmukh believes inspelling everything out. Mostly to a much-obliged Inspector Gaitonde.
