“Emraan’s Azhar sets the record straight” – Subhash K Jha reviews Azhar

13 May 2016 10:00 PM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Azhar

Starring Emraan Hashmi, Prachi Desai, Nargis Fakhri, Lara Dutta,Kunal Roy Kapoor

Directed by Tony D’Souza

Rating: *** ½

So did he or did he not? Did cricketing phenomenon Mohammad Azharuddin (who fell short of achieving what Sachin Tendulkar or Sunil Gavaskar did) indulge in….ahem…match-fixing? The film leaves us unsure of Azhar’s moral correctness? In building a case of his heroic stature in and out of the sports field, writer Rajat Arora doesn’t flinch from asking uncomfortable questions about Azharuddin career moves and personal choices.

As directed by Tony d’Souza (whose last film Boss was a big bad-ass sambhar-curry) the bio-pic shifts gears from the personal to the professional without tripping on its nose. And that no mean achievement. In making a smooth transition from Azhar’s misadventures on the field to his complicated relationship-status, the narrative shows a level of sensibleness and straight-talking directness »

Nargis Fakhri Refashions Sangeeta Bijlani’s iconic ‘Oye Oye’ In The Film Azhar

4 May 2016 9:00 PM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Bollywood has always loved its film stories inspired by true life. When you decide to tell the story of a cricket legend using Bollywood stars you can hardly go wrong. Azhar which is based on the life of an outstanding cricketer Mohammad Azharuddin, shows not just his professional journey but also his personal life. Nargis Fakhri who will essay the role of Sangeeta Bijlani in the film ‘Azhar’ has set the glamour quotient a notch higher with her song Oye Oye. Nargis is setting the stage on fire in the revised version of the iconic 90’s hit. Considering that Sangeeta was one of the most popular starts of her time and Tridev being one of her most popular movies, it is not a surprise that this iconic number was chosen to be recreated. Though the set is quite different from its 90s counterpart, the ‘Gajar’ which means the ‘Clock’ is used in both the songs. »

The forthcoming Balaji Motion Pictures film Azhar has been directed by Tony D’Souza and will see actor Emraan Hashmi play the role of a cricketer who has been supposedly “framed” for match-fixing. Nargis Fakhri, Prachi Desai and Lara Dutta also star in the film. The soundtrack has music by a mixture of composers: Pritam, Amaal Malik, DJ Chetas and a re-worked track by yesteryear composers Kalyanji and Anandji. Actor Emraan Hashmi is always known to have outstanding music in his films, so let’s see how this soundtrack fares!

The album opens with the romantic ballad Bol Do Naa Zara, which has been sung by Armaan Malik and composed by Amaal Malik with lyrics by Rashmi Virag. What is refreshing about this song is that it actually stays in your mind and does not give you the deja vu feeling of having heard it before (as can happen with »

The Man Who Stood By Azhar: Makers Reveal Kunaal Roy Kapur’s Look

20 April 2016 10:06 PM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

The makers of Azhar have revealed Kunaal Roy Kapur’s incredible look from the film where he portrays the dramatized role of Azhar’s real life lawyer friend Reddy.

Sporting a bald patch along with dentures to give his face an aged look, well aided by prosthetics, Kunaal is unrecognizable as Reddy and seems to have gone extra mile for his role.

His character is based on the lawyer and a friend of Azhar who had defended the cricketer in the match-fixing scandal.

Talking about his look in the film, Kunaal said, “It took about two hours to get the look because of the prosthetics. I had a latex bald piece stuck to my forehead and then there was a wig that went on top of it. I was given a denture-like thing to make my face look fuller. By the end of the look test, I couldn’t recognize myself. »

Karanvir Sharma to play Azhar’s nemesis in the film

13 April 2016 7:00 PM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Bollywood actor Karanvir Sharma will now be seen essaying the role of the Azhar’s nemesis in the Emraan Hashmi starrer movie. Karanvir plays the inspired character of Manoj, who had an important part to play in the downfall of Azhar.

Karanvir has worked hard to get into the skin of the character. As a part of his preparation for the role, he underwent long hours of committed practice to get the bowling and batting spot on. He specially worked on his bowling style as it had to be tampered from unorthodox to orthodox off-swinger. “All of this had to be done over a course of two months as I was the last actor to come on board. Needless to say the voice modulation, the 80’s hairstyle, the moustache and a lot of tan added to the hard work.” 

Commenting on his character, Karanvir said, “This project was interesting because »
