Storyline

Yash Thakur (Sanjay Kapoor) and Suraj Prakash (Salman Khan) are two inseparable friends. After completing their studies, they go their different ways. Yash takes over from his father's (Paresh Rawal) nefarious and mafia-like business, while Suraj becomes an officer of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI). Yash's dad is attacked by a rival, and he loses the use of his leg and is confined in a wheelchair. Yash marries his sweetheart Prathna (Shilpa Shetty). After completing his training successfully, Suraj is assigned the investigation against his friend, Yash, which shocks Suraj, but which he accepts. Yash's dad's contacts are many, and soon Yash also comes to know of Suraj's job, and his assignment. Suraj must now convince Yash that his father is not what he appears to be, and at the same time take criticism and pressure from his superiors for not proceeding with the investigation against Yash.

Suraj + Yash = Friendhsip Forever
30 March 2008 | by cybersupamSee all my reviews

Before stepping into acting this was Sohail's first directorial movie. But it did flop with an immature story, old plots and over-action scenes. Yes though it can be considered as movie for commercial purposes but many bugs and small mistakes are visible while watching it. From Anu Malik's side it was a good effort to present good and ear-relaxing music. That's why the songs are not that negligible, and are worth listening. Exceptional to one song 'Dil Le Lena' which he entirely copied from Macarena by Los Del Rio.

I like Auzaar only for the story of Suraj (Salman) and Yash (Sanjay) who are good friends and can do anything for their strong friendship sake. Only difference is that Suraj is from a village and Yash is from a rich (criminal) father. Also Yash has a girlfriend Prathna (shilpa), while Suraj remains bachelor till the end of the movie. Suddenly in between their friendship story Suraj leaves for his village. He returns with a secret mission and hiding his identity from all. What is that secret mission and his identity?

The movie can be considered as 'zabardast masaladar' but again with too much 'masala' also spoils the recipe. Such is the case with Auzaar. Only tasty while watching it, but forget after it gets end. Sometimes it's hard to digest. Paresh Rawal is always evergreen for every role he is offered, and here also it is not exceptional. His role as Yash's handicapped father is excellent, which proves that he is fit for every role beside comedian.

A great regret for Sohail is that his first directorial debut went in vain without success. He improved better with his second movie Pyar Kiya To Darna Kya which was somewhat delicious.
