‘Azhar': An Engaging Sports Film, Biopic And Courtroom Drama Rolled Into One

As a fictionalized account of the life and times of one of the most successful Indian cricket captains, Azhar serves as a colourful reminder of a bygone era of cricket and succeeds in highlighting the passion, euphoria and madness associated with the sport in cricket-crazy India. How the captain doesn't merely represent a team of 11 players but a country of more than 1 billion people. How dearly a victory is cherished. How badly a defeat is regretted.
