War Movie Review
With espionage and terrorism as the primary backdrop, War is truly a spectacle to watch but primarily for the terrific action and performances of the dynamic duo – Hrithik and Tiger. Kabir (Hrithik Roshan) and Khalid (Tiger Shroff) work for India’s Intelligence Bureau, and Khalid is the star protégé of his mentor Kabir, who suddenly goes rogue while on an assassination mission. Khalid is then asked to capture or kill Kabir in order to stop the killing spree of Kabir against the intelligence agency officers.
This is when all the rightly-hyped amazing action sequences materialise. These artistic action sequences have been shot beautifully in striking locations around the world from Australia to Portugal to Morocco. The movie is primarily worth a watch just for the action sequences alone, performed by the gorgeous pair as well as for their faultless camaraderie.
Whenever these two handsome and skilled men are on screen, magic happens, and they successfully grab all the attention with their performance. However, this magic is diminished with all the exaggerated and unrealistic action sequences like missiles firing, superhuman stunts and crashing supercars.
Vaani Kapoor appears out of nowhere and soon disappears from the movie as well, making us wonder ‘was she really necessary?’ The second half of the movie is loaded with predictable twists and hard to believe plots which seem to be largely inspired by long-seen Hollywood flicks.
The music in the movie, as well as the background score, is quite good, with its two top songs breaking the charts currently.
It seems like Director Siddharth Anand was largely inspired by foreign films and picked up most twists, action scenes as well as the climax from there. The lack of a strong screenplay and story is evident and doesn’t offer much support to the decent performances delivered by Hrithik and Tiger.
War movie is meant strictly for fans of Tiger Shroff and Hrithik Roshan or for hardcore action lovers. But other than that, it is surely a pass.
