Synopsis: ‘Wazir’ is a tale of two unlikely friends, a wheelchair-bound chess grandmaster and a brave ATS officer. Brought together by grief and a strange twist of fate, the two men decide to help each other win the biggest games of their lives. But there’s a mysterious, dangerous opponent lurking in the shadows, who is all set to checkmate them.
Review: Bollywood has begun the year on a thrilling note with the first big release Wazir promising a power-packed ride. With writers Abhijat Joshi and Vidhu Vinod Chopra, and flaunting actors such as Amitabh Bachchan, Farhan Akhtar and Manav Kaul, expectations are high from the thriller revenge saga. Does it deliver?
The film narrates the story of a cop (Farhan), a disabled man (Amitabh) and the unusual circumstances that lead to a friendship between the two.
Wazir opens on a disengaging note – a slow, romantic song (Tere Bin) plays in the background as the love story of Danish (Farhan) and Ruhana (Aditi) comes to the fore. By the time the song ends, a tragic turn of events leaves the couple grieving and depressed. The movie then traces Pandit Omkarnath Dhar (Amitabh), his entry in Danish’s life and their friendship.
But within moments of the slow song, a well-written script ensures you are on the edge of your seats. From a well shot and perfectly edited shoot-out to the build up to an innocent friendship, the director keeps us on the tenterhooks as the story unfolds.
Apart from the smart storyline, powerful performances are the backbone of Wazir.
While Farhan and Amitabh are the clear winners, the supporting actors too showcase their skills. Neil Nitin Mukesh is convincing as the character edging with psychopath bend. Manav Kaul and John Abraham, too, perfectly fit into their characters and bring the narration alive.
The film’s most interesting part lies in the fact that it is a revenge drama but the protagonists are not angry. They are cold-blooded in their devious planning and perfect implementation. In a remarkable deviation from the typical Bollywood style, Wazir’s characters do not delve into the sadistic pleasure of avenging a wrong but concentrate on the final target.
Despite the smaller flaws and the slightly botched up ending, the film is definitely worth a watch.
