*ing: Hrithik Roshan, Tiger Shroff, Vaani Kapoor, Ashutosh Rana
What happens when you have a movie that stars Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff? Besides the fact that the film has entered the Rs 100-crore club, it will have fans of the two actors thronging the theatres to see their favourite actors battle it out. And they do battle it out like never seen before in Bollywood.
Directed by Siddharth Anand, who directed and wrote Bang Bang! starring Hrithik Roshan and Katrina Kaif is a rollercoaster ride that takes you some beautiful foreign locales.
The opening scene gives you a preview of what will happen for the next 156 minutes. We just love our heroes and Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff deliver this plenty of muscles thrown in and groovy dance steps in the middle that makes no sense. But that doesn’t matter. We just love to see the two show their prowess — be it on the dance floor or go after the villains in the name of their country even though there might be a hidden personal agenda.
Bullets flying, fisty cuffs, bike chases, jumping from an aircraft and betrayal. Does it sound like a scene from Mission Impossible series, right? But it isn’t given the desi twist that War comes — the gaddari ka kalank mitana hai — resonates loud and clear. Then there is the obsession that Bollywood has to make films where the entire nation is at risk of an invasion and it is only a one-man army, our hero, who can save the day.
What makes this film enjoyable is the fantastic action sequences. There haven’t been many movies that our industry churns out that has this level of stunts. Those looking for a meaningful cinema, need to stay away from this film which is all about brawn and beauty too.
