Trailer Review of Azhar Film
After watching the trailer, we felt that they tried hard to get the real Azhar look but I think they failed to get that look.
In Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, Farhan Akhtar and team of BMG had done a great job and Farhan Akhtar did a fantastic makeover, but Emran Hashmi’s look is not near to real Azhar. Emraan Hashmi is a brilliant actor and his dialogues and scenes are perfect. Casting of Nargis Fakhri as Sangeeta Bijlani is totally lame, they could get some experienced actress for that role.
Overall trailer was good and we are looking forward to watch this film in theater.
