Review of Wazir Star cast : Amitabh Bachchan, Farhan Akhtar, Aditi Rao Hydari, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Manav Kaul. Wazir opens up to an average Bollywood setup, Farhan getting married to Ruhaana ( Aditi Rao), having a happy family with their only child Noori. Slowly gripping up, this average movie turns into a dramatic marvel. Farhan plays a dynamic ATS officer.
One day when Danish (Farhan) is out with his family, he spots a dreadful terrorist group headed by Rameez, he follows them, they open fire against him. In this shootout his daughter Noori dies. He is so shattered and hurt by his daughter’s death that he sets out to kill the terrorist and gets suspended from his service.
Unable to bear the grief, one day, just as he’s about to kill himself, there enters a wheel chair-bound chess wiz Pandit Omkarnath Dhar played by Amitabh. He is yet another troubled father. Stuck in similar situations, they become friends. Panditji brings a little peace into his life by reuniting him with Ruhaana who is saddened by their daughter’s death.
While teaching him chess Panditji tells Danish how life is similar to the game of chess. One day, Panditji reveals to him that his daughter, was murdered by welfare minister Yazaad Qureshi (Manav Kaul) and that he wants to take revenge but does not have a proof.
Though his disability act as a barrier. He keeps on making moves. Panditji gets attacked by a certain mysterious villain named Wazir played by Neil Nitin Mukesh. A role perfectly played by him.
Is Danish able to find Wazir, eliminate Yazaad Qureshi and able to bring the truth upfront forms the rest of the story. Finding a good story is galling these days.
Wazir is one such movie, which has a brilliant plot. It reaffirms that, there is nothing that can beat a plot driven movie weighted by amazing performances.
