Directed by Krishna DK, Raj Nidimoru, Farzi stars Shahid Kapoor, Vijay Sethupathi. It released on February 10, 2023 on Amazon Prime, also marking Vijay’s OTT debut.
Shahid acts as Sunny (Conman), Vijay as a law enforcement officer named Michael attempting to chase him down. It seems to be cat and mouse race between the duo. It showcases Shahid and his team making ‘nakli notes (counterfeits)’ and become affluent overnight.
Shahid is superb, while Vijay Sethupathi is brilliant in acting. Kay Kay Menon appears to be average. Rashi Khanna and Regina Cassandra deliver fine. There is seamless way of speaking sarcastic one-liners from Vijay’s side. One remains hooked with the writing done and the screenplay, including top-notch cinematography.
