The Cast

Emraan Hashmi plays Azhar. While Prachi Desai plays the role of Azhar’s first wife Naureen. Nargis Fakhri stars as Azhar’s second wife Sangeeta Bijlani. Lara Dutta assumes the role of a legal advisor in the movie.

This motion picture is based on the life and times of one of India’s ideal, unarguably and most disputable cricket skippers, Mohammad Azharuddin. The idea, however, is that this movie is not a biopic per se. It is based on some controversial events and realities of former Indian cricket captain’s life. The film is coordinated by Tony D’Souza and has been scripted by Rajat Arora.

The film have been shot at the Oval, Lords, Derby, Cantebury and Edgbaston cricket grounds. Other locations included Harleyford Manor, Mayfield Lavender Farm, Virginia Water and Windsor.


The Story Unfolds

Although Azhar movie is not a biopic, it is based on true events. Emraan Hashmi leads by playing Azharuddin in the film. He did full justice with his role. It is anticipated that this movie will be viewed as a support of the Azharuddin for the cases he got for cricket outrage issue in year 2000. Chronicling an existence filled with enormous good and bad times, Azhar is an irrepressible story of a cricketing saint. In all his magnificence and disgrace. From the beginning, Mohammad Azharuddin was clear about his relationships and was also open about to have two wives. It’s a film demonstrating how the most prevalent Indian global cricket star transformed into the most abhorred cricketer. The first look at this movie indicates Emraan Hashmi in an exceptionally drained out and disappointment look.

As Azharuddin himself have said, Azhar movie depends on three essential subjects – “My GOD, Two Marriages and A Match Fixing Issue”. The official trailer demonstrates a love triangle between Azharuddin, his first wife Naureen and second wife Sangeeta Bijlani. As we foresee from the trailer, this movie is all about the time a sparkling star of Indian cricketer to his vocation fall, and his life after cricket embarrassment issue.

Trailer begins with a look at Emraan Hashmi as Azharuddin. One side of the structure, his fan taking after burning a poster of him. Demonstrating their outrage for him. On the other side, young ladies are succumbing to him in adoration. In the trailer, we see a delightful Emraan Hashmi with Prachi Desai. In a different scene, he is with Nargis Fakhri.


Our Verdict

Emraan Hashmi has done a lot of hard work to get into the character of Mohammad Azharuddin. However, he lacks Azharuddin’s charismatic posture. Nothing looks like genuine like as he play shots, go ahead pitch. After the Azhar Official Trailer it would appear that, movie would be a fizzled endeavor of Tony D’souza to demonstrate Azharuddin faultless. Nevertheless, Emraan has done fair justice with the role and he did up to some extent. Other cast also played will in their respective role. We say go for it! Azhar movie will be released on 13th May, 2016.
