AAZAAN movie review: Hollywood style action with a ‘desi’ let down

Despite the unconvincing leading man of Prashant Chadha’s espionage thriller, Aazaan is a one-time watch, if only for the action and Candice Boucher, of course! The movie makes a promising start, but the moment Sachiin Joshi arrives on scene, the disconnect begins. A film of this stature needed someone like Hrithik Roshan, who could have delivered the chops, but by any stretch of imagination, one can’t believe that Joshi, who plays the title role can save a jeopardised country. The film takes a lot of creative liberties but the visuals which are almost at par with Hollywood, somehow manage to keep you interested. Dalip Tahil has been criminally wasted and so are the other actors. Ravi Kissen’s dialogue delivery in Hindi is an outdated version, which is not used anymore. Candice Boucher makes a glorified cameo but looks sinfully gorgeous nevertheless. The climax ensures that you will not walk out angry or heavily let down.
