War - Movie Review

War Hindi Movie Review

When I saw the trailer of this movie, the first thing that came to mind was ‘Rogue Assassin’ which was also released with the same name ‘War’ back in 2007. Watch Rogue Assassin and you’ll notice the resemblance. Back to the Bollywood movie ‘War’. At least they could have thought of a better name than ‘War’. While the trailer suggested a similar story, and the plot is kind of similar, the story has a lot of additional elements that make it quite interesting and worth watching. First of all the chemistry between Hrithik and Tiger was amazing. Hrithik was incredible right from the first scene to the last one. Tiger’s stunts are definitely amazing and his acting skills have come a long way since his first movie. Hrithik had a kind of swag throughout the movie that was irresistible. He played the perfect spy/soldier. The music was very interesting with its slight rock tones, the electronic techno tunes, and the classic Bollywood flavour.

I loved the emotional depth each of the character had, for example, Tiger’s character Khalid and his back story where his father is a traitor. How Khalid wishes to regain his family’s lost respect by serving his country. While Hrithik’s character ‘Kabir’ is the one who killed Khalid’s father, Khalid is still determined to work under him and has immense respect and admiration for Kabir. The scene where Khalid’s mom and Kabir look at each other for a few seconds was epic as well. Vaani had a very small role in the movie as ‘Naina’, nevertheless an important one. The intense conversation that Kabir and Naina have where Kabir breaks her heart and still requests her to help him. And Naina, inspite of Kabir’s lies, takes the job to be with her daughter was the best part of the entire movie for me. Vaani may have gotten a short role, but it was one of the most breath-taking scenes in the movie and she did a wonderful job. I also loved the soft background music for this scene. Naina appears in the movie as Kabir’s civilian asset, a backup plan concocted by Kabir to get the bad guy. However, Kabir makes a blunder and fails to protect her. And now Kabir has to bear the burden of her death on his shoulders, the turning point where Kabir goes Rogue.

The bike chase scene reminded me of Mission Impossible Rogue Nation, and the Arctic scene was ridiculous. The last fight scene was good, technique oriented, a little power oriented, however, also had a lot to do with determination. The fight scene in the plane was incredibly well thought and executed. I wish the last fight was similar. I felt Kabir dropping on the ship when the missile was going to reroute itself back to the ship was ridiculous. Let the missile destroy the ship with all the bad guys in it. Easy way out right? Just watch over them from a distance in case they make a last minute escape.

Like Rogue Assassin, Kabir should have been portrayed as the bad guy, but there were hardly any scenes that depicted him of being a bad guy. And it should have been shown in the end that Kabir is actually the good guy. However, Khalid’s twist was perfect. He is a good guy throughout the movie, however at the very end we come to know that he is indeed the bad guy. Watch the movie, it is definitely worth a watch. Hrithik, with his charm and swag. Tiger with his stunts and cuteness. And Vaani’s short but very emotional moment. All these three things make this movie amazing. The end was exciting as well with Kabir embarking on a solo mission to stay a Rogue Agent and still work to protect India. I hope this could be a start to a Mission Impossible like series with Kabir being the Indian Ethan Hunt.
