Chehre Pe Chehra (lit. A face over a face) is a 1981 Indian Bollywood thriller film produced and directed by Raj Tilak. It stars Sanjeev Kumar, Vinod Mehra, Shatrughan Sinha, Rekha and Sulakshana Pandit in pivotal roles. It is an adaptation of the novel Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson.
Wilson is a scientist who feels that every human has both angelic and devilish elements in themselves. He strongly believes that these two elements can be segregated and then a medicine can be invented to eliminate the undesirable element, while leaving only the desirable element intact. Wilson eventually invents a potion to put his theory into effect. He decides to test the invention on himself. But the result does not occur as he had theorised: although his devilish persona gets segregated from his angelic persona, it is much more powerful, and Wilson is unable to eliminate it.
