Unfortunately, the film moves a bit too slowly for its own good and fails to make good use of the assets in its possession, leaving the audience less thrilled than they should be.

2016’s first big release is Bejoy Nambiar’s Wazir starring Amitabh Bachchan and Farhan Akthar in principle roles where the story centres around the idea of a chess game, its rules, its pieces, the relationships and most importantly the idea of winning and losing.
