The film tells the story of two unusual friends, a wheelchair-bound chess grandmaster and a grief-stricken ATS officer, who are brought together by a peculiar twist of fate as part of a wider conspiracy that has cast a dark shadow over their lives. The game of chess is a recurring metaphor and forms the backbone of the story.
Beautifully narrated and presented till the halfway mark, Wazir directed by the talented Bejoy Nambiar looses the grip in the second half to end just as a watchable film. The build up was highly promising and could have gone to be a taut thriller but that commercial angle in the latter stages takes away that shine from the film.
