Dhar (Amitabh Bachchan) lost both his limbs in an accident; he cannot possibly drive a vehicle, let alone a van. And if he did have some contraption fitted to his legs, it would be nearly impossible to get into the driver's seat from the rear of the van without help from another person. See more »
Pandit Omkarnath Dhar:
Khel Khel While you playfully keep playing this game, you will learn how this game is played; The wins and losses you have when you take chances, will teach you when you need to lose so that you can win; No one follows the code of conduct, deception is the only rule.

I never heard a thing about this movie before watching, but it felt like the long wait is over...
I'm a chess fan (not a good player however).
One day, while I was playing chess, a thought came into my mind, "What if the game I'm playing is happening for real somewhere?" Then it was obvious, I searched for the movies with similar theme but couldn't get one. The best I could find was "The Seventh Seal" by Ingmar Bergman which was nowhere near to the one in my mind.
I knew nothing about 'WAZIR' before watching, except it was a chess movie. I'm a chess fan, so, I would have never missed this movie no matter good or bad. I wasn't expecting more either. But, after watching it, my mind was completely blown away. My long wait has been fulfilled. THIS is the best chess movie I've ever seen.
At some points, I felt errors in storytelling (wished they hadn't done it this way). But those were nothing compared to the whole package. The performances were good. The whole script is excellent. Technically, it felt real, which is also a good thing. I'm sure this movie will leave a mark in Bollywood, with its significance growing over time.
This movie came as a surprise which made me experience that, if a movie comes as a surprise, that movie is going to be in your best movies list.
Thanks for the whole team of WAZIR for delivering us this movie. Much appreciated.
