Azaan is about Azaan Khan (Sachiin Joshi), an Indian of Afghan origin who is trained at the NDA and is RAW’s secret agent. India is under attack by a lethal virus projected in the country by external terrorist forces. Azaan is sent to find the cure to the virus. Also, he is on a mission to find his brother who has turned a terrorist and works for the biggies who have planned this virus.
The feel of the film is very international as it is shot at the most exotic locations of the world. But the mediocre dialogues and a confused storyline lets it down. Adding the love track between Azaan and Afreen (Candice Boucher) was not explained well and seemed rather unnecessary. The film seemed a little emotionless as the lead star.
Sachiin Joshi has the physique and the body language but lacks that what we call as the X-Factor to become a star. He was not given much dialogues as they would not have added to his advantage. Candice Boucher was okay. Ravi Kissen was OTT. Dalip Tahil was his usual best. Rest of the supporting cast was pretty average.
The direction was confused. Cinematography definitely stole the show and the background score was good too apart from a few negligible flaws here and there. The dialogues were a major let down. Music was soothing enough. The screenplay and edits needed desperate check but some of the camera angles used were very good. Overall it was not a bad attempt but if you are expecting something above average, this one is not for you.
