Amitabh Bachchan and Farhan Akhtar-starrer "Wazir" is to release on 8 January. However, critics say the film is the best start for the year 2016. Also, several Bollywood celebs have appreciated the actors' performance in the flick.

Directed by Bejoy Nambiar, the film features Big B, Farhan, Aditi Rao Hydari, Nitin Mukesh and John Abraham. It is produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra and Rajkumar Hirani, and was earlier titled "Do".

In the film, the audience will see Big B as Pandit Omkarnath Dhar, an ailing wheelchair-bound chess master. On the other side, Farhan is plays the role of tough Anti Terrorist Squad (ATS) officer Daanish.

This is not the first time that Big B and Farhan are doing a movie together. Though they will share screen space for the first time, the two have worked together earlier when Farhan directed Bachchan Sr in his 2004 film "Lakshya".

Several Bollywood stars including Anil Kapoor, Dino Morea have attended the special screening of "Wazir" and expressed immense appreciation for the two leading actors' performances in the film. Here are the tweets:
