Ratings: Two Star

The year kicks off with Bejoy Nambiar’s much awaited film - Wazir. Let’s take a look at what this unique thriller has to offer.

 

Wazir tells the tale of ATS officer Danish Ali and his wife Ruhana. The film opens on their idyllic family life before tragedy strikes and Ali’s daughter is killed by a mysterious terrorist. His marriage falls apart and our hero is on the verge of suicide when he meets a similarly broken man - Pandit Omkarnath played by Amitabh Bachchan. What unravels is a beautiful and taut interaction between the two over a game of chess as Panditji inspires Danish to exact revenge on the mysterious terrorist mastermind - Wazir.

 

Vidhu Vinod Chopra and Abhijat Joshi’s screenplay establishes a very promising premise early on making you believe you are in for a rather special thriller. But the second half of the movie fails to live up to the promise of the first. The twists turn out to be fairly predictable and the movie gets down to so much of detailing that you lose interest. A good thriller should provide a seamless unraveling of mysteries and that is where Wazir falters, which is a shame because the film scores in all other departments. Farhan Akhtar is perfect as the broken Danish Ali while Amitabh Bachchan has never been in better form than he is in this film. The presentation by Bejoy Nambiar ensures a wonderful cinematic experience and the film stays taut with a running time of just 1.5 hours which is very rare in Bollywood.

 

Overall, Wazir falls short of being a classic thriller though it does provide an enjoyable ride. Watch it if only for the brilliant performances put in by the lead actors as well as Neil Nitin Mukesh’s cameo which will surely be talked about a lot. We shall go with two and half stars for this movie.
