Well written and Performed by Amitabh and Farhan.....
10 January 2016 | by See all my reviews

This one really got off a flying start for 2016. Wazir has its own way of doing it. It's spontaneous, catchy and the characters grow on you all the way. Bejoy has perfectly directed Chess based thriller with amazing performance by Chess Master Big B and ATS Farhan. Script was short and precise hence it make really good Climax. Cinematography was brilliant specially in Kashmir sequence. Music and background score were brilliant. Aditi Rao Hydari is decent and carries off her character effortlessly like always. Don't bat your eyelid lest you might just miss out on the intense plot that unfolds between Big B, Akhtar, and Neil Nitin Mukesh. This one's a must-watch for its intensity and stellar performances.
