On the whole, WAR is a paisa-vasool action entertainer which has style as well as enough twists and turns to keep the viewers engrossed. At the box office, the extended weekend, dazzling action, stunning international locales and stylish execution will ensure mammoth footfalls for the film.
All said and done, War is a timepass watch and nothing more than that. Hollywood feeds us such movies on a regular basis & if you just want to see how Bollywood has achieved that, go for it. Watch it for the action & style because there’s nothing else to look up to.
The last time Hrithik looked as sexy, was in Dhoom 2 ( 2006), also a Yash Raj film. The golden streaks have been replaced with a bit of grey at the temples, but the bronzed cheekbones decorated with a few fetching scars, is full eye-candy. I am not revealing anything by telling you that War looks all set to be a franchise: next time maybe go full comic-book silly? Now that’s a spy I will buy.
“The war is still on,” says a character in the closing moments. Take his word for it: there will be a sequel. Next time, Team War, stick with the mindlessness and skip the misplaced, poorly thought out profundities, please?
Aditya Chopra and Siddharth Anand, who have co-written the plot, want to stimulate and shock the audiences at the same time. And simultaneously infuse the pride of Deshbhakti into our hearts, as if Kumar and Abraham didn’t do it correctly. But hardcore fans of the actors won’t scoff at the idea even for a second. All they wish to do is witness two of the most revered action and dancing sensations together in the same frame. The men do deliver, but the film doesn’t. War’s greatest achievement could be being better than Anand and YRF’s last few offerings. That may be enough to make this a blockbuster!
War has swag, style and sass in abundance, and comes peppered with high-octane action scenes, car-and-bike chases and jaw-dropping series of twists. What else do you expect from a film that has Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff as the lead pair? War, a big spectacle film, is definitely worth a watch for the sheer joy of seeing this dream pair of Hrithik and Tiger on the silver screen.
Overall we have a hollow script with little emotions, a big budget and a team that has something to prove. WAR seems more like a Hrithik Roshan and YRF come back than anything else. WAR seems to have just begun, here’s to hoping for a better future without a sequel.
War is undoubtedly an entertaining Bollywood thriller with two superstars of two different generations giving ample opportunities to start a social media war on who was better. After a long time, we have a film which is better than its trailer. WAR is a combination of well-blended masala, powerful action scenes, unpredictable twists and a required dose of patriotism. Something, you can watch and enjoy.
As soon as the next gunshot is fired, War returns to the core business of violent confrontations that push the combatants to the limits of their ability to endure pain. They test the patience of the audience too. This War is just not worth fighting. It begins with a bang and ends with a bang, but is otherwise a whimper all the way. Only for fans of Hrithik and Tiger.
WAR is that film that is perfect for a mid-week holiday. It has enough to keep you talking about it for the next couple of days. And ladies, if you start fantastising about Hrithik Roshan once again, do not blame us. Those gleaming biceps are lustworthy and how.
On the whole, War is a sureshot hit. It has the magical chemistry of two handsome hunks, their superb action, and an outstanding dance picturised on both of them as its major plus points. The film will join the Rs. 100-crore club in no time; it will also soon become a part of the Rs. 200-crore club. It has the potential to even touch the Rs. 250-crore mark. It will do business at great speed. The film could prove to be the starting of a new franchise for the Yash Raj Films banner.
