The ApunKaChoice movie review of Aazaan. After Force, box office has witnessed the release of another action packed thriller Aazaan today. Though there was a lot of buzz surrounding the movie owing to its big budget, Aazaan fails to impress us as much as it should have!
Aazaan revolves around an Indian of Afghan origin, Aazaan Khan (Sachiin Joshi). He is not only a trained officer from National Defense Academy, but also a RAW secret agent. India is under a bioterrorist attack threat by a lethal virus planted by external forces.
Aazaan is called up and given the responsibility to find the cure to this virus. He goes undercover to find a solution to this threat. Now, here comes the family angle. Aazaan is also on a mission to find his brother! His brother, however, is the blue-eyed boy of the biggies of the terrorist group who have planted this virus threat!
Oh and how can we forget mentioning the lead actress of the movie, one of Bollywood’s hottest imports, Candice Boucher. Candice, though does not have much to offer to the film, looks hot, hotter, hottest! Her beach scene ups the temperature inside the cinema hall!
Yes, the story line was good and so was the concept! This was definitely a fresh and distinct idea. And that is the reason for our disappointment! The intent was excellent, but the outcome wasn’t!
Now, let us discuss the story treatment. Well, the movie could have been a lot better, but is not that boring either! The exotic shooting locations, from Morocco to Germany to Hong Kong and Poland leave you amazed! The cinematography is what scores in the movie. You can feel a Hollywoodish touch in quite a many scenes.
Speaking about the performances by the actors, Sachiin Joshi fails to leave a mark! If body building was the success mantra in Bollywood, Uday Chopra would have perhaps been the best actor ever. Sachiin, though looks fit, lacks that oomph or rather the X-factor to be called a hero! Plus, with such an international feel in the movie, and a hot Playboy Model (Candice Boucher) sharing screen space with you, expectations are set incredibly high! Sachiin’s style quotient, too, is low! Though, we are sure he has the capability and will bounce back strongly in his next venture.
Coming to the director, Prashant Chadha does a satisfactory job. Though less in number, Aazaan has in stock for you some goosebumpy moments. Also, the movie is way better than his previous attempt as a director, Aap Ka Suroor. Looks like slowly but steadily, Prashant is learning the nuances of direction.
Let’s discuss now what is perhaps the best part of Aazaan: the dialogues. You feel a sense of patriotism after hearing some dialogues. The interaction between the baddies and Dalip Tahil is very inspiring.
The music of the film is ok. The background score, however, is amazing! In fact, there are some scenes which feel powerful just because of the background score!
Overall, the movie can be watched once. Just don’t set your expectations too high and you will enjoy a decent action flick.
