WAR is a grand action spectacle, that doesn’t disappoint!

A mainstream blockbuster, featuring the hottest beefcake in the film industry, WAR is a quintessential popcorn entertainer, mounted on a massive scale. Hrithik Roshan’s beauty, brawn and brilliance are enough to make your monies worth. If you keep your intellectual expectations low, I’m sure you’ll like indulging in this guilty pleasure!

WAR movie is about a special agent Kabir (Hrithik Roshan) who has gone rogue and his student, Khalid (Tiger Shroff) is entrusted to take him down.

To be honest, I went in watching this movie with minimal expectations, majorly owing to the kind of work that director Siddharth Anand has produced in the past. ‘Superficially packaged frail content’ has been the USP of Siddharth Anand movies. However, I was pleasantly surprised to see a minor bit of heft in the screenplay of WAR. That the film will score high aesthetically, was a given, but it kept me hooked with frequent twists and turns, which ended up making this longish runtime of two and a half hours quite engaging. It’s still superficial, albeit with a little more sense. But frankly, you never expect anything truly meaningful out of a huge commercial Bollywood blockbuster anyway.

The highlight of WAR are its action sequences, and they most definitely are visually appealing and thrilling. It isn’t comparable to Hollywood standards, given the budgetary constraints, but it surely sets a benchmark for Bollywood. A lot keeps happening very quickly, keeping the viewers thoroughly engaged. The two songs are totally unrelated to the storyline, but shot beautifully. And watching these gorgeous stars showcasing their best dance moves is totally worth the time.

Hrithik Roshan amazes you and how! His unmatched superstardom is on display here, which you can simply behold in awe. He looks gorgeous, acts with an inimitable swag, dances like God, and performs action sequences like a pro. His charismatic personality completely overshadows his co-actor Tiger Shroff. Tiger is terrific with his action scenes, and matches each of Hrithik’s dance steps, but he still has a long way to go as far as the skill of acting is concerned. While this genre of cinema doesn’t really test your acting chops, you still have to do the basics right. Vaani Kapoor Appears briefly, but does her job adequately. She looks ravishing too. All the other actors are subpar, with caricaturist depictions.

As I said earlier, don’t expect too much logic, and I’m sure you’ll have a decently entertaining time at the cinemas with this glossy action entertainer!
