Critics Review


Emraan Hashmi plays a BRILLIANT knock in a totally one-sided match!

the film ultimately belongs to Emraan Hashmi. It is his sincere performance (even though his Hyderabadi accent go on and off as per the convenience of the script), that makes us invest in the film.

Movie Review

Director Tony D'souza's AZHAR brilliantly captures the angst, the simplicity, the colossal success, the dual romance, tryst with infamy and an arduous innings of never ending struggle-to-clear-the-name of Indian cricket's heroic, yet arguably the most controversial captain Mohammad Azharuddin.

The Emraan Hashmi starrer has been made to clear the real player�s name

This could have been a great cautionary tale about a great sport at a time when it was just becoming the arena it has grown into�full of big money and glamour, bigger endorsements and never-ending temptations : it is, instead, an inept �tamasha�, not very different from the stuff Bollywood churns ou...(more)
