“War” Review: A Full-Throated Action Flick That Truly Delivers Edge-Of-The-Seat Entertainment

Mohnish Singh |Oct 02, 2019

“War” stars Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff in lead roles. Filled with jaw-dropping action sequences, breathtaking locations and pulsating background score, the movie lives up to its huge pre-release expectations.

War, featuring Hrithik Roshan, Tiger Shroff and Vaani Kapoor in lead roles, has been in news even before it started rolling. Shot on a lavish scale, the movie brings Hrithik and Tiger together for the first time ever.

Both actors are known for setting new benchmarks when it comes to action movies in Bollywood. Watching them together on the screen, beating goons to a pulp, in itself is a cinematic joy that no film enthusiasts would want to miss.

After generating outstanding pre-release buzz, War entered theatres today. Here is what I felt about the action flick directed by Siddharth Anand.

What War Is All About?

After carrying out several secret missions successfully, Indian agent Kabir (Hrithik Roshan) inexplicably goes rogue and shoots down a highly placed Indian administrator. There are a few more high-profile targets on his list. But before he reaches any of them, his protégé Khalid (Tiger Shroff) needs to track him down and find out what led his mentor to become a traitor from a patriot.

Is War Worth You Time & Money?

War is an out-and-out action entertainer which lives up to its huge pre-release buzz. Action is the biggest highlight of this Yash Raj Films’ offering. The movie has been shot so majestically on a series of eye-pleasing locations that it can give several Hollywood biggies a run for their money. War is a stylish film whose every single frame exudes richness.

Another highlight is its lead cast which includes Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff. Both actors have done a terrific job, especially when it comes to delivering jaw-dropping action sequences that have been choreographed with panache.

This is the first time when Hrithik and Tiger have worked together, and it is a visual treat to see them engage in a cat and mouse race on celluloid. The film also has Vaani Kapoor in a role that does not have much of a length but is central to the narrative. The actress plays her part well. Ashutosh Rana also does justice to his role.

The only thing which lets you down is juvenile plot twists in the narrative. After investing almost two hours into the movie when you finally reach the point where you get to know the real reason behind the two lead actors waging a war against each other, you sort of feel, “Oh, really?”

While the dialogues and screenplay are good, a little more imagination in writing convincing twists could have made War a much better film. The movie also needed a better trimming.

Apart from convincing performances, cinematography and action choreography, what really stands out is pulsating background score of the film. It keeps you on the edge of your seat throughout.

In a nutshell, filmmaker Siddharth Anand succeeds in giving novel touches to a storyline that does not go beyond being a typical genre film, but it does grab your attention on-screen and remains as gripping as any well-crafted action thriller.

Final Verdict

Filled with sleek action sequences, picturesque locations and great background score topped off with first-rate performances from Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff, War is a popcorn action entertainer that cannot be missed. It is definitely worth your time and money. I am going with 3.5 stars.
