Critics from online portals, prestigious magazines and even trade circle analysts are showering the film with unstinted praise. Here is an overview of some of the accolades:
Taran Adarsh: #Chehre opts for an unconventional theme, which tends to get verbose and talk-heavy after a point… But the plusses outnumber the minusses here, especially the moments between #AmitabhBachchan, #EmraanHashmi and #AnnuKapoor… Also, the climax twist is a big plus. #ChehreReview
