War 
 
War Movie Director: Siddharth Anand 
 
War Movie Cast: Hrithik Roshan, Tiger Shroff, Vaani Kapoor 
 
War Movie Rating: 3/5

 

War is about an agent gone rogue and his prodigy who try to prove who is more patriotic than the other. Kabir (Hrithik Roshan), the leader of a special task force team of India, faces a quandary when he is introduced to a new recruit, Khalid (Tiger Shroff). Khalid is on a mission to prove his patriotism and cleanse the name of his family after his father was exterminated and labelled as a traitor. But, Kabir doesn't trust anyone to join his team unless they pass the requisite trust barometer. Hereon, the film transports us back to the present where Khalid is now tasked to stop Kabir from eliminating Indian intelligence and military assets. The only problem is - nobody knows who is the next target, the modus operandi or the reason why Kabir has turned rogue. 

 

 

Director Siddharth Anand does a decent job making the film engrossing for the audience. The first-half has several close combat and parkour sequences. The makers have shot this massive showdown across seven countries, which gives the audience many beautiful locations to explore. For thriller lovers, there are enough twists and turns and keeps the audience guessing: What’s the motive? The film, of course, could have benefitted if it was chopped a little tighter in the second half, saving the audience some time from another showdown between the leads.

Hrithik stands out and yet again proves why he is the super-agent who can equally play darker shades with finesse. Tiger Shroff has played the gutsy, risk-taking commando in his last few films. The experience of those helps him to convince the audience that he has come a long way from the action-loving lover boy. In fact, he has a few tricks up his sleeve that becomes the highlight of the film; stealing some charm from Hrithik.  

 

 

Soni Razdan is in her element, playing the role of Khalid’s mother waiting to have her moment of redemption. She is impactful whenever given the screen space. Ashutosh Rana plays Colonel Luthra, the head of the special task force. He grips his character brings in the required dose of intensity. Vani Kapoor, who enters in the second half with a role that is a little more than a cameo, becomes the moral compass for Kabir. Anupriya Goenka, one of the key team members of the task force, is given less on-ground action scenes but more desk intelligence work - making us wonder, why should boys have all the fun?

The best part of the film is that the writer and director, Siddharth Anand, hasn't shown Hrithik as a commander with unlimited energy. He does get tired and beaten down. More importantly, just because Tiger takes his shirt off, Hrithik doesn't do it for the heck of it. At the same time, it also suffers from some illogical action scenes such as using magnetic force to cling on to a defence plane flying at a high altitude. In such scripts, often logic and gravity is an unnecessary burden. 

 

The music and background score keeps the energy of this action flick high. Dialogues are well-written and throw in a tint of humour which adds to the chemistry between Hrithik and Tiger. 

 

 

War is undoubtedly an entertaining Bollywood thriller with two superstars of two different generations giving ample opportunities to start a social media war on who was better. After a long time, we have a film which is better than its trailer. WAR is a combination of well-blended masala, powerful action scenes, unpredictable twists and a required dose of patriotism. Something, you can watch and enjoy.
