Review Rating: 3/5
One of the highly anticipated films of the year ‘War‘ has hit the screens on October 2, 2019. The Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff action dhamaka is all set to WOW the fans with some amazing high-end stunts, stunning visuals and romantic drama too. This is the first time the two actors are sharing screen space and excitement level is on a new high. The duo is all set to give fans a mixed dose of Mission Impossible Fast and Furious and many other top Hollywood actioners.
Kabir (Hrithik Roshan) and Khalid (Tiger Shroff) are mentor and mentee in an Indian intelligence agency. The movie starts with Major Kabir going rogue and killing army officials. His protege Khalid (Tiger Shroff) is given the task of chasing him down. The first half is all about the bond the two shared before Hrithik going rogue. It also showcases the complex dynamics the two share in the Yash Raj Film. From establishing how Kabir and Khalid first met and formed a relationship to the present scenario.
Hrithik Roshan as Kabir is charismatic and drool-worthy, he also has some grey shades to his character. He is the heart and soul of the film and his entry in the first half is totally whistled worthy. The hunk scorches the screen with his presence. After playing a teacher in ‘Super 30’ the actor is in his element playing a spy gone rogue. His faceoff with protegee Tiger Shroff leaves an everlasting impact on fans. We also loved his onscreen chemistry with the sizzling Vaani Kapoor who plays the female lead.
Tiger Shroff, on the other hand, surprises. While he is great in action sequences, it is the dramatic portions where he excels. His opening sequence is a fight sequence that leaves us impressed. He has aced his act as a protegee who has to nab his idol and easily makes us believe how the issue is taking a toll on him but he has to keep on going for the nation’s welfare. Tiger is finally showing some meat behind his acting chops. The gangly lad from ‘Heropanti’ has come a long way and is at present the heartthrob of millions all over.
Vaani Kapoor adds the much-needed glamour to the movie and shines in the songs but she has not much of a role. Ashutosh Rana brings an intensity to his character as usual.
The film is a visual spectacle for quintessential action cinema lovers. The twists are well placed and give you an edge of the seat experience. Sidharth will blow you over with some stunning visuals and hi-end action. Paul Jennings’ choreographed car chase in the Arctic Circle of Finland and the pulsating bike sequence in Portugal are too good.
Background score by Sanchit Balhara and Ankit Balhara is massy and classy. Jai Shiv Shankar is a delight to watch and Ghungroo too is good. Ben Jasper’s cinematography gives the movie a sleek and rich look.
Though the film excels in action, it genuinely falls short on the story front. The movie could have been shortened for a few minutes to give it a slick look. But all in all a watchable film for fans.
All you action lovers do not miss this action dhamaka War.
