It's a brave but pointless attempt to make a fallen star look less fallen. Is there such a thing? The film claims it to be a work of fiction, and manages to make it such a drag, you wonder why they would try and convince people that there was righteous innocence in a game known to be tainted by money.

Azhar Review RatingAnanya Bhattacharya (India Today)

In addition to the problems in the story, Azhar also staggers in its editing. For a 130-minute film, Azhar feels strangely stretched. There are moments in the film that force you to stifle those yawns.The film works for most parts due to Emraan's brilliant performance. Most people will believe Azharuddin's story. For Emraan Hashmi.   Read Full Review

Azhar Review RatingSubha Shetty Saha (Ndtv)

Azhar is clearly made as an attempt at redemption for the tainted cricketer and India's ex-captain Mohammad Azharuddin. Unfortunately, you walk out of the theatre with no emotions, no sympathy, except for remorse at having wasted another two hours of your life on a strictly mediocre film.  Read Full Review

Anna M.M. Vetticad (Firstpost)

The film truly does itself in though by inexplicably serving up very little cricket. Even the worst screenplay might have been lifted by some suspenseful on-screen matches, but Azhar remains a sports film sans the sport.
What we get instead is a half-baked, half-hearted attempt to declare Azharuddin innocent of match-fixing charges. Azhar is a superficial look at the life of one of the most enigmatic and intriguing sporting stars this country has ever seen. It is an opportunity lost.

Azhar Review RatingRohit Vats (Hindustan Times)

The version is over-dramaticised in stretches but the makers don't deny any of the allegations, giving the scandal a spin that makes the film an interesting watch. The Emraan Hashmi charm mixed with shy Azharuddin mannerism makes it a heady cocktail. You wouldn't want to put it down without giving it a try.  Read Full Review
