Critics Review


An Exhaustingly Made Disaster

'War' directed by Siddharth Anand, starring Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff, is your mindless high concept, high budget Bollywood action film where everything is lavishly shot and shown to pump up high dosage of nationalisms but falls disastrously flat and funny as the writing goes ridiculously mayhem!

Lot of style, stunts and show, but lacks a solid storyline

The relentless action and the dialogue baazi is entertaining, but the predictable storytelling and the not-so-original screenplay leave a lot to be desired in this desi action flick. On the back of films like Hrithik's Dhoom 2 and Tiger's Baaghi 2, War is a decent addition to both actors' action film legacy. But this high-profile bang bang show is at best, popcorn entertainment for action movie buffs.(more)

Hrithik-Tiger starrer runs a loyalty test for Muslims under cover of an exciting action drama

Tiger Shroff is an excellent dancer, has a fabulous body and an overall likable screen presence, but acting is not his talent. In a film where he spends most of his time bashing up people, that might have been tolerable if it were not for his laboured attempt at pronouncing Urdu words. What was the diction coach doing?(more)

Strictly For Fans Of Hrithik Roshan And Tiger Shroff

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.(more)

Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff film is 154 minutes of only action

War credits Vishal Dadlani, Daniel B George (background score) and Shekhar Ravjiani for its music, but it is strictly passable. The background score works when accentuated by the sound of engines revving, but otherwise remains unnoticed. Ghungroo stands out in comparison to Jai Jai Shiv Shankar. That's just about 50 per cent for Vishal Dadlani.(more)

Hrithik Roshan starrer is flashy but familiar

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? Now that's a spy I will buy.(more)

Yet Another Addition To - 'Not Every Good Looking Movie Is A Good Movie'

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.(more)
