War: Biggest action entertainer of 2019?

War is an incredible action-packed film with high production value, lots of twist and turns, two stars who perform jaw-dropping action scenes. Overall, one of the best action films to be made by Bollywood and a visual spectacle for cinema lovers who enjoy action films.

I was expecting Saaho to be the biggest action entertainer of the year 2019, but surprisingly, its War which will walk away with that credit.

War is like a Hollywood film, sort of a Bond film, but made on a lower budget. You have to watch it for the action, style and the locations.

And it’s after a long time that both, the director Siddharth Anand as well as the production house YRF, have delivered a blockbuster film. That should definitely cheer them up.

Any downsides to the film?

  • Hrithik and Tiger take up most of the screen time, not even a single scary villain to send shivers down the spine.
  • Background music and the two songs are mediocre.

But on the whole, War seems to be sure-shot hit and should earn Rs.200-250 crores at the box office club.

WAR STORY: Khalid (played by Tiger), an Indian soldier, is assigned to eliminate a senior agent and his mentor Kabir (played by Hrithik) who has gone rogue for some reason. Khalid is ready to do his duty for his country but is also keen to find out why Major Kabir has gone rogue and is killing army officials .

War isn’t trying for depth but the story isn’t afraid of being slightly more twisty. The film is too long and the post-interval portion sags. In places, the narration gets clumsy – there’s a flashback within a flashback and the songs are force-fitted. In fact, the background music by Sanchit Balhara and Ankit Balhara has more impact than the two songs by Vishal-Shekhar. This is a testosterone-heavy universe – the women, Vaani Kapoor, Soni Razdan, Anupriya Goenka briefly saunter in to provide the emotional centre. But War is very much a bromance which sparkles because Hrithik and Tiger are combative without being competitive. I had a good time. I think you will too.

Like the quintessential entertainer, War serves up a little bit of everything in its narrative — Action, drama, music, romance, exotic locations and car chases. The screenplay makes room for every commercial movie element. In a bid to make it Hollywood-esque, director Siddharth Anand and his team have designed the many stunts of the film to recreate thrills that you’d usually watch in movies like Mission Impossible and Fast And Furious. The relentless action and the dialoguebaazi is entertaining, but the predictable storytelling and the not-so-original screenplay leave a lot to be desired in this desi action flick. On the back of films like Hrithik’s Dhoom 2 and Tiger’s Baaghi 2, War is a decent addition to both actors’ action film legacy. But this high-profile bang bang show is at best, popcorn entertainment for action movie buffs.

For those that will buy a ticket simply to gawk at the collective handsomeness of its leading men, War gives you your money’s worth. Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff practically burn up the screen when they’re matching steps in synchronized dance numbers, or going brawn for brawn when pitted against each other in fight scenes. Yet you can’t shake off the feeling that any film starring these two talented and genetically blessed movie stars should be smarter and more thrilling that this one that they decided to make. I’m going with two-and-a-half out of five for “War”. It’s too long at 136 minutes. Come on, how much can you take of a beefcake buffet!

Ratings:.2/5 Review By: Shubhra Site: Indian Express
The chief trouble with War is that all the space is divvied up between Hrithik and Tiger, and they are so busy strutting across the screen, in all their glory, so ripped, so brawny, that the poor baddies don’t really get a chance. Not one scary villain who sends the shivers down our spines? Then the spies might as well be playing ring-around-the-roses with each other.
