Wazir – Movie Review


Danish Ali ( Farhan Akhtar) is an officer in the anti terrorist squad, tragedy strikes in his happy life when he loses his daughter while chasing a terrorist. After losing his daughter and separated from his wife his emotions take him over and he also gets suspended. In an unusual circumstance he meets Pandit Omkarnath ( Amitabh Bhachan) who brings him out his grief. Omkarnath who has lost his wife and his two legs in an accident, asks Danish to investigate the recent death of his daughter who died under mysterious circumstance. How Danish battles his own ghosts and also solves Nina’s death is the rest of the story.

A movie with good performances from the lead actors makes Wazir a watchable entertainer for the audience. Amitabh becomes the character as always and charms the audiences. Farhan too plays his part but is no match for Amitabh.Apart from the acting the dialogues were written equally well. The first half breezes thru but a weak and predictable second half makes the film dull and boring. Screenplay too becomes brittle and breaks apart in the second half. Bejoy Nambiar does weave a decent thriller but ends up being too predictable and lucid. I give 5/10

Bhaag Milkha Bhaag – Movie Review


Bhaag Milkha Bhaag

Is the true story of Milkha Singh also called as”Flying Sikh” – world champion runner, who overcame the massacre of his family, civil war during the India-Pakistan partition to become one of India’s most iconic athlete.  The film starts in the 1960 Olympic Games in Rome in which he loses the race while still haunted from his childhood memories and trauma. “Bhaag Milkha Bhaag” may be the best told film of a sportsperson in India and certainly leave you with a sense of pride for having the legendary athlete as a fellow countryman. Farhan Akhtar as Milkha Singh was great; he has portrayed the athlete’s role to the core, whether it was the young Jawan who ran the cross country race for a mug of milk to the determined athlete who asks his coach the world record time for the 400m race. Great performances from Divya Dutta as Milkha’s devoted elder sister and Japtej Singh the boy who acted as young Milkha Singh.

Having such great Performances in the Film, it still lacked good screen play, the editing was never tight, unwanted long scenes in the film (the film was 187mins long). Sonam Kapoor’s portion of the film never had any depth in the film. The story had lot of pot holes and a clear 25mins could have been cut in the Film. The art direction was very poor; the costumes were just looking retro and did not blend in the film. The Locations in which they had shot was the only thing which gave a periodic composition, but most of it was just the race track. Good work from the VFX team who had undergone pain to restore old footage and recreating stadium and crowd multiplication. Finally the only thing which makes the film remember will be the Farhan Akhtar’s career best acting (till date). I give the film 5/10.
