Movie Review: Azhar (2016)
Azhar (Emraan Hashmi) is an introvert who’s instilled with only one aim in life by his grandfather (Kulbhushan Kharbanda) and that is to play 100 test matches for his motherland India. The journey of success is dotted with his marriage to the lovely Naureen (Prachi Desai). Their angelic love story smeared with lighthearted funny moments moves like a swift breeze. The life of Indian cricket team captain makes him cross flower-laden path with the gorgeous actress Sangeeta (Nargis Fakhri) who was nursing a broken heart. The introvert Ajju becomes the more outgoing, suave Azhar flashing expensive watches and stylishly lifted collars. The tongues start wagging, the match fixing scandal takes the country by storm and in his quest for clearing his name and the ignominious life ban, Azhar decides to take the battle to the Court where he’s represented by his under confident lawyer friend Reddy (Kunal Kapoor) while the prosecution lawyer is the fiery Meera (Lara Dutta), an erstwhile diehard Azhar fan.
