You are in for swag, swank, style and lots of ammo
Is it wrong if we say that Bollywood is neck and neck when with Hollywood when it comes to action films? Meaning no comparison here, it is a fact that we now see the same level of slickness or even better when it comes to combat and chases.
That’s a great achievement, but maybe in focusing that, our films lost track of the story and streamlining. This is what is visible in current films and this is what happened with War. Fanciest appeal with weak foundation.

Read Detail Review
When a director makes a second film in an almost same genre, one naturally expects more. And so Siddharth Anand delivered more as a director, there is panache in everything, right from locations to action, but he missed out on something. That missing streak was to write a film that complements his direction style.
Even after all the fabulous camera and bridgework, the movie failed to reach higher levels of impress-meter.
Alekh (Story) – Patkatha (Screenplay)
While the recent scenario in films makes us believe that good content is taking over, sometimes it also puts us in doubt. We guess films will always be a mix, some good in content, others good in appeal, some will click, others may or may not.
While as audience and reviewers we have understood this, the film makers should also understand and start giving content some priority in whatever genre they are producing. We also understand the hard work and effort put in to deliver grandeur and larger than life imagery, but don’t we all agree that with a good script, we will have a superlative version of this larger-than-life appearance.
And the issue wasn’t just the story, it was also predictability, stretched sequences, run off the mill dialogues never-ending chases and dull twists. In fact, the biggest twist of the film failed immensely, it made the script uninteresting instead of thrilling, which is the prime agenda of any twist.
To counter and fill in the blanks, the film offered only and only oodles of style and swag with its action and direction.
Hrithik Roshan, the screen is on fire every time this hottie appears. His look in the film is temptingly stylish, his avatar nonchalant and his performance totally killing it in every scene. Apt casting and Hrithik delivered the bestest version of himself.
His pairing with Tiger Shroff is a wonderful idea and looks uber cool. Also, because Tiger leave no stone unturned to deliver one of his best till date we guess. He looks fab and showed a lot of growth and potential.
Vaani Kapoor and Ashutosh Rana, two actors that not only had uncooked characters but also didn’t get much screen space. Such disappointment there.
Geet Sangeet (Music)
Honestly, a film like this should be songless. Having said that, Ghungroo song was a break from all the ammunition. Jai Jai Shiv Shankar was a big hurdle in the film’s flow. Background music by Sanchit Balhara and Ankit Balhara is fantastically energetic. It has the right dose of desi and posh.
Nirnay (FilmyCurry Verdict)
You should go see this one to know the heights our cinema is achieving when it comes to VFX and appeal. Story wise, it is an average film. All in all, a good time pass.
