We have seen films like Talaash and Badlapur where in the protagonist overcame their loneliness in different manner. While Aamir Khan in Talaash fought his grief by being busy, Varun Dhawan adopted the violent route by taking the revenge.
One of the sub-plots in Wazir is about two people, Pandit Omkarnath (Amitabh Bachchan) and Danish Ali (Farhan Akhtar) who have lost their loved ones. Unlike the above mentioned films, in Wazir both of them use chess as a medium to overcome the loneliness. What happens next is an incident which changes the life of both Danish and Omkarnath. What is the incident? What happens after the same?
Wazir is a stereotypical Bollywood film with elements of action, romance, drama and thrill present in right proportion. Director Bejoy Nambiar takes no time to establish the romance between the lead, Farhan Akhtar and Aditi Rao Hydari. The film starts off with a bang with a brilliantly choreographed action sequence which is pulled off with conviction by Farhan Akhtar. Not just the story, but the screenplay is gripping and gritty throughout the first half. The intermission point leaves you stunned and makes you expect a lot more from the second half.
However, the major hassles come into the picture in the second half where the screenplay gets haphazard and things happen too easily. A certain amount of depth, required before unveiling the conclusion in the film is missing. The climax leaves a lot of question unanswered and makes you think as to why and how did it happen.
