Azaan Movie Review

Bollywood Dil Se Movie Review: Azaan

Rating: ❤ ❤ ❤
Movie Information: IMDB Link , Wiki
Cast: Sachiin J Joshi, Candice Boucher, Dilip Tahil, Sajid Hassan, Amber Rosh Revah, Sarita Chaudhary
Direction: Prashant Chaddha
Genre: Action Thriller

Movie Overview:

Azaan is an attempt to make a spy action thriller of Hollywood echelon and makers have partly succeeded in their job. The movie is shot exotically, and seems polished but misses out the real thrill element of an action thriller. Thanks to very poor screenplay, a viewer is never connected with the movie, and thus enjoys this stylish odyssey at a superficial level only.

Sachin Joshi isn’t apt choice for this movie. The actor, who is also the producer of the movie, is unfortunately, a big letdown. If he would have casted some veteran actor of Bollywood and invested good amount in publicity and marketing, and the movie would have turned a money making machine for him.

Unfortunately, one of the most expensive movies of Bollywood (precisely 180 crores) will flop in an unnoticing approach.

I can easily summarize my experience of Azaan as follows.

Cinematography (arguably, the best that Bollywood has even seen)
Background Score (Undoubtedly, the best that Bollywood has heard this year till date)
Novel theme (biological warfare and undercover agent concept)

Sachin Joshi’s performance (and strictly okay performances from veterans like Dilip Tahil and Sajid Hassan due to scare scope)
Scattered screenplay (probably the worst one for such a tight-edited movie)

Nevertheless, I will watch this movie again, just to hear the background score by Salim – Sulaiman.


Quick Review:

Bad performance by Sachin Joshi and average performance by all the actors. Candice Boucher (playboy cover girl) and Amber Rose Revah (From Paris With Love fame) do their cameos well. It would not be wrong to say that Sachin Joshi has messed up the movie.

Story And Screenplay:
Story is good, screenplay is scattered, inconsistent and full of flaws.

Editing And Cinematography:
Kudos to editor and cinematographer!

Music And Background Score:
Music is good. Afreen and Khuda Ke Liye sounds good and are shot well. Background score is grandiose!

Direction is a series of hits and misses. Some sequences are brilliantly directed where as there are major loop holes post interval.

Final Verdict:
If screenplay (bad) and hero (very bad) were of the same standards like its cinematography (far better than most of Bollywood movies) and background score (far better than any movie released this year), then believe me folks, this could have been the Bollywood's answer to Bourne series.
