War | Bollywood Movie Review by Anupama Chopra | Hrithik Roshan | Tiger Shroff


War is a battle won by beauty,
specifically Hrithik Roshan’s beauty. As special agent Kabir,
the actor is back to putting his dazzling good looks and suave style into
service the way he did in his debut film Kaho Naa… Pyaar Hai and Dhoom 2. Director Siddharth Anand and this film
are just as mesmerized by him as we are. So in one scene, Hrithik just
walks out of a helicopter. He doesn’t even run like Shah Rukh Khan
did in Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham. But everyone including the colonel
Kabir reports to, is transfixed. Kabir’s sideburns are grey,
his face is lined and lacerated. But this only adds to his weathered gorgeousness. Later in the film, when a girl
offers to run away with Kabir, his junior Khalid says “get in line.” Of course, Khalid is no slouch either. Tiger Shroff’s ripped abs get their own moment of glory. But thankfully, in this film, the actor isn’t
only relying on his physical prowess. The role has more complexities
than the usual Tiger movie and the actor delivers. It also helps that Tiger
is a self-professed Hrithik bhakt, so the admiration you see
in Khalid’s eyes is genuine. Kabir is all about swag and
Khalid is all about sincerity. They complete each other. In War, Siddharth gets a chance
to make a film with two of Hindi cinema’s best action heroes, but mercifully he backs
the propulsive action with a story. Of course, War is a popcorn entertainer
and you can’t ask too many questions. But, if you’re willing to suspend disbelief,
the twists and turns exert a solid grip. The story, by Siddharth and
producer Aditya Chopra and the screenplay by Siddharth
and Shridhar Raghavan borders on silly, but it never topples over. The film also offers a trip to all the places
you might have on your bucket list. From Kerala to Bondi Beach
in Australia to Portugal, each location has been shot like a glossy tourism
catalogue by DOP Benjamin Jasper. Umpteen overhead shots underline the scale
of the film and the money that was spent. Four action directors
worked on this movie. Paul Jennings who did The Dark Knight, Oh Sea Young who did Avengers: Age of Ultron, Franz Spilhaus who did Death Race: Inferno and Parvez Shaikh who did
Tiger Zinda Hai. These men create distinctive set pieces. So, we get a motorcycle chase,
an airplane battle and this two-minute, thirty-second long
bone-crunching sequence in which Khalid is introduced. There’s also a massively mounted
climactic sequence on an ice-breaking ship. But, whether it’s land, sea or air,
Hrithik and Tiger make the action convincing. I like that their characters aren’t unbreakable. We see them bleed and get exhausted. Momentarily, at least, they seem fallible. War isn’t trying for depth, but the story
isn’t afraid of being slightly more twisty. The film is too long
and the post-interval portion sags. In places, the narration gets clumsy. There’s a flashback within a flashback
and the songs are force-fitted. In fact, the background music
by Sanchit Balhara and Ankit Balhara has more impact than
the two songs by Vishal-Shekhar. This is, of course, a testosterone-heavy universe. The women Vaani Kapoor,
Soni Razdan, Anupriya Goenka briefly saunter in to provide the emotional centre. But, War is very much a bromance which
sparkles because Hrithik and Tiger are combative
without being competitive. I had a very good time,
I think you will too.

  2. I think she gave a positive review to War because she doesn't want the south Indian movie Syeraa to shine better in theaters.

  3. Thanks for appreciating Tiger's Acting performance yes he made this huge leap and elevated his acting to that level which he had never In SOTY2 he was promising and acted good but the story was crap but here they had a script and direction in place. I'm happy Sid Anand and Aditya Chopra believed in his talent and gave him this complex character earlier ppl used to say he is an action hero dancer gymnast great looker had great physique but no acting chops but look at how far he came where he even matched Hrithik and gave on par performance. Happy for him he is a great human being he deserves every bit of appreciation coming his way ❤

  4. Its a good film. I enjoyed it too.

    @Anupama – Been long time since you guys did lets talk movies. Another episode please.

  5. Bang on review
    Movie is just a treat to eye.
    Cocky kids with sacred games and game of thrones fans are only compaining.
    Feel like they dont get enough sleep thays y they are grouchy!

  6. Well, WAR is ENTERTAINING full of STYLE AND ACTION. Two things I like the most is HRITHIK and another is BACKGROUND MUSIC.

  7. There was really no popcorn entertainment here.. It was too stretched and an embarrassment to Indian action movies..

  8. I have just begun watching this review let's take a guess.. this is great movie that's what this bitch is going to say.

    Yup .. fuck her and her producer husband..

  9. Serious suggestion….Stop not a movie review…. Ever one getting irritated by it…Not good for film companion, where people like Baradwaj Rangan are respected…

  10. Come on Guys, Anupamaji liked the film so she is appreciating it. What's wrong in it? And I too have watched the film. Trust me it is a must watch. And why can't Yash Raj Banner make such a nice film? Yes obviously YRF can and they have done it beautifully this time. YRF has in fact raised the standard of Indian Cinema through this film. And the word ' film critic' doesn't always mean a person who will criticise every film unnecessarily. The film is awesome friends. Just go and watch it. You will not be disappointed.

  11. I can't believe her!!!!!!! Movie is not this great!!!! It's just okay… normally she would give 1.5 to these movies

  12. Thoda Hindi bhi bol leti aap ….. May be you are just serving high end society ?? Anyway …. may be next time

  13. Yeh bakwas movie hai. sab bakwas.waste of time. plot was so weakkkkk. no storyline and the film was too long. just an excuse to put a couple of action sequences together for the sake of it.

  14. Is it only me who thinks that Hritik and Tiger's performance was very gay?

    Looked like a cheap make over of Missio Impossible

  15. Anupama dislikes a Bollywood masala film: “ yeh auntie toh sirf Hollywood/ arthouse films pasand karti hain, worst critic”
    Anupama likes a Bollywood masala film: “ yeh bik gai hai media”
    Hypocrite kaun?

  16. Chamchagiri ki height par kardi tune toh!! kabhi dikhiyo mat mereko!! kal movie dekha aaj bhi sar dard kar raha hai!! tatti khaegi tu!

  17. Anupama mam

    Why syeraa narishma not reviewed till now …
    Joker review is posted but syeraa review not yet …
    Hindi version is eligible for your review

  18. She should retire reviewing movie. Seriously is she an employee of Yash Raj??? If she liked this movie why didn’t she like Sahoo??? Is she fan of six packs?? This double standard pissed me off. She should be ashamed of being Yashraj chamchaa.

  19. ok but u can asks sahoo bledy questions6 please stop hippocracy u didnt even reviewed sye raa narasimhareddy this show what u are https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OtCe_KVOJUw

  20. Thank you for a fair review and not forcefully inserting “there is no feminism in this film” denominator here!

  21. I think not a movie review has not come for this specific project as she can’t lie as convincingly as mrs chopra did 🤔

  22. Her words "I had a very good time" just stuck with me… I don't think she's said that about a lot of movies.

  23. Honest reviews. I was trying to focus on what she was saying but the half eye liner on one eye really distracted me as a viewer.

  24. When a reviewer has more positive things to say about “War” than about “Joker”…. i just fail to comprehend everything! 😐

  26. They are family ! Anupama Chopra is the wife of Vidhu Vinod Chopra who is the son of DR Chopra.
    DR Chopra, BR Chopra, Yash Chopra and Hiroo Johar (Hiroo Chopra) are real siblings which makes Karan Johar (son of Hiroo Johar) and Aditya Chopra (son of Yash Chopra) first cousins of Vidhu Vinod Chopra. So they are brothers-in-law of Anupama Chopra.

    P.S. BR Chopra's grandsons Abhay and Juno Chopra are also film producers

  27. You scratch my back and I'll scratch yours = Film companion. Never thought Anupama could fall down to this level, tch tch

  28. So lenient on this movie. I watched it after knowing that Anupama and Rahul both were positive about this movie but it was a total waste of time and money.

  29. Unsubscribed after watching your honest review .
    बिके हुए लोग। जनता के पैसे बर्बाद करवाते है।
    Dosto ये फ़िल्म गलती से भी मत देखना
    पछताओगे ।

  30. iss movie ney ek hight seup kiya hai bollywood may…. dabang wabang jaise movie say bahut upar hai ye movie…best wishes from nepal….

  31. Ma'am I had a lot of respect for you. However, I have seen you applause some really horrible movies of late. What a shame. I am never seeing your review again. What a horrible movie War was!!!!

  32. Great work anupama it looks like ur promoting the movie rather than review. YRF @ – lakh rupees to anupamas account.
    SUM Recived!!

  33. U guys like war and u guys brutally tear apart syra narasimha Reddy which is a master piece . I think u are too biased

  34. She her..she iz back to her basics: reviewing bollywood circuses😁, God knows why she went to make review of a true cinema like Joker🤔
