Wazir is a missed opportunity.

It is a story that could have been gripping but suffers from a bad treatment, thus leaving you disappointed. Farhan and Big B do their best to save this botched up plot but they can�t..The first half seems decently pacey, Wazir badly suffers in the second.

Amitabh Bachchan and Farhan Akhtar are IMPRESSIVE in this predictable game of chess!

Amitabh Bachchan and Farhan are stellar in their roles. Big B is brilliant in the scene where he reminisces about his dead wife, and also in the final scene. Farhan provides perfect foil to his senior costar, and he brings various nuances to his anguished performance. The film is watchable because o...(more)

Wazir is a childish game of chess

Bejoy Nambiar's Wazir -- based on a script by producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra -- stacks the pieces interestingly enough to begin with. There is a brooding rook, flawed but furious. There is a desperate pawn with nothing to lose.(more)
