Ashdoc's movie review---Wazir

Post by ashdoc on Wed Jan 13, 2016 2:25 pm

On the chess board , wazir is the most dangerous opponent . It can literally make and break a game . So in a movie where the main protagonists play chess , it is ideal that the villain who breaks lives should be called wazir , isn't it ?? So in this movie anti terrorism officer Daanish Ali ( Farhan Akhtar ) has to confront the villain wazir ( Neil Nitin Mukesh ) , who is playing havoc with his friend Pandit Omkarnath Dhar's ( Amitabh Bachchan ) life . How he comes to the confrontation is a convoluted tale in itself....

Danish loses his daughter in a gunfight with terrorists from Pakistan , and his crusade for revenge costs him his job , for he is suspended . But his loss is far worse , because he also is now reviled by his wife ( Aditi Rao Hydari ) because he involved his daughter in an anti terrorist gunfight . By coincidence he comes into contact with Omkarnath , who bonds with him over games of chess and tells him of his own daughter's death in mysterious circumstances at the home of a Kashmiri politician . Danish decides to confront the politician and the politician responds by sending a person to terrorize Omkarnath---who else but wazir....

So who is this mysterious entity called wazir ? What is the mystery of the death of Omkarnath's daughter ? Is the kashmiri politician guilty ? Will Danish be able to uncover the truth ? 
Watch the movie for the answers....

The movie has a powerful start with good action sequences , but drags in the middle---until the appearance of wazir....then again the movie picks up pace as wazir ignites the proceedings....

But there are too many coincidences in the film , and many of the happenings appear way too filmy because they are too convenient for the storyline to proceed . You lose interest in some parts , though other parts of the film are interesting . The movie moves from Delhi to the flashpoint of the subcontinent---Kashmir what else , where the final fight takes place .

But we are left with a real surprise in the end....yes , it is the end that packs the real punch and injects much needed zing to the movie . And what happens at the end ? Well I am not about to reveal that....
But it is the climax that makes you feel that the movie is good . 

The photography is decent , but no great shots are shown . Actually Kashmir in winter would have made the perfect setting for great photography , but the director was more concerned about action . Background music is okay . But the songs are very good , and after some time an action/suspense movie had good songs . Some of them are worth listening again and again . 

Acting is okay from everyone , and as usual Amitabh steals the honours . 
Aditi Rao Hydari looks stunningly delicate and fair and so lovely---she would be the ideal model for 'fair and lovely' cream !! Her flowing dresses have been wonderfully designed . 

The theme of the movie is chess , and the player who uses wazir for achieving his goal is a deft player on the chess board . But this is the deadly chess board of life and death , and wrong use of the wazir can have fatal consequences indeed....

Verdict---Very decent .
Three stars .

i forgot to add that amitabh is playing a physically disabled person on wheelchair in the film , and that aditi rao hydari looks so good even though she is in her mid thirties---not a trace of age on her !!

liked the movie but HATED how much they had dumbed it down for the audience. Explain and over-explain. Come on, keep the script tight, give enough hints and let people sort it out when walking out and feel more awed.
