Truly Disappointing
15 May 2016 | by virusharmaSee all my reviews

Azhar Movie is biopic on Mohammad Azharuddin. He was involved in Match Fixing scandal. So when I started watching the movie I was expecting it would tell me how he took such bad decision but instead movie kept showing him as victim. Story could have shown why Hansie Cronje took Azhar name during controversy.There were lot of Grey areas which were not answered. Biopics are meant to reveal something but Movie just showed events which everyone knew.

I expected movie to show how he became cricketer. Show us how he used to practice but there were hardly any scene about that. Imran Hashmi did good job as far as looking like Azhar. Acting was not bad too.

This Movie had lot of potential but it falls flat on face.
