Critic Reviews Wazir

  • Times of India | Review By -Srijana Mitra Das Rating-7/10
Consistent hard focus over sentimental soft-focus would have let these shatranj ke khiladi blow up that chess board. As it is, they complete their game - but don't check-mate smartly enough.

  • News 18 | Review By -Rajeev Masand Rating-5/10
In the end Wazir is moody and atmospheric, and gripping for a large part. What it needed was a tighter script with fewer holes. I’m going with two-and-half out of five.

  • Rediff | Review By -Raja Sen Rating-4/10
It has competent moments, but is too generic to be memorable, and that's a shame for it could so easily have been a winner. As it stands, Wazir is the one thing a chess player can never afford to be: Obvious.

  • NDTV | Review By -Saibal Chatterjee Rating-5/10
But its visual and technical sheen pales in the absence of a truly gripping story. Wazir is at best a one-time watch, if only for the academic interest of viewing Amitabh Bachchan and Farhan Akhtar in the same film.

  • Indian Express | Review By -Shubhra Gupta Rating-5/10
There’s enough to watch in ‘Wazir’ despite its flaws. It reaffirms something we’ve always known: that there’s nothing to beat a plot-driven film. That the supreme importance in a thriller is to keep it going.

  • Mid Day | Review By -Shubha Shetty Saha Rating-7/10
What works against the film, however, is loads of groan worthy cliches, predictable storyline and worst of all, it also suffers from the common woe of most Bollywood thrillers; lack of subtlety.

  • Koimoi | Review By -Surabhi Redkar Rating-5/10
Wazir is a missed opportunity. It is a story that could have been gripping but suffers from a bad treatment, thus leaving you disappointed. Farhan and Big B do their best to save this botched up plot but they can’t. So basically, it’s like the audiences will end up saying Check Mate to the makers.

  • Bollywood Hungama | Review By -BH Review Rating-5/10
On the whole, WAZIR, despite boasting of some of the great performances, reasonably fails to leave the desired impact because of its convoluted script.
