Director Tony S'Souza has directed films like 'Boss' and 'Blue', and now for the first time he has directed a biopic, which is based on the life of Famous cricketer Mohammad Azharuddin, come lets know how this film is made : Story : This story is of Mohammad Azharuddin (Emraan Hashmi) from Hyderabad, who was fond of cricket from his childhood because of Nana. With the selection in cricket team, his wife Nareen (Prachi Desai) also enters his life and after few years, he got married to Sangeeta Bijlani (Nargis Fakhri). With the game, Azhar name comes in fixing, because of which, his popularity goes down, this fixing takes him to the supreme court and all this is shown through a film. Script : This film is based on the life of Former Indian Cricket Captain Azharuddin and it is decorated also with cinema liberty, but you won't be able to connect Azhar emotions with yourself, dialogues written by Rajat Arora are not that impressive, on one hand, where biopic of Mary Kom and Milkha Singh is made, so comparison with this film should be done. Film is seen quite confusive, which could have been more better. In this Azhar is shown in Good Books. Acting : Nargis Fakhri and Prachi Desai had done their work amazingly but Emraan Hashmi playing Azharuddin has done tremendous work. Lara Dutta was also ok. Music : The best part of the film is it's music, which was hit before the release. Why to watch : If you are Emraan Hashmi's fan then do watch this film.
