That WAR also happens to be a barnstorming, knuckle-busting and an immensely enjoyable action movie under the guise of a meta bromance tale is just the icing on the gluten-free cake.
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 55-second teaser offers everything you’d want from the teaser of a high-octane action romp as action stars Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff face-off in every manner possible. From hand to hand combat, to shootouts, to chases of both the rooftop and car varieties and even a joust-style bike dual in locations across the globe. In short, it’s all out vehicular warfare between two stars in what feels like a throwback to the good old-fashioned two-hero films which are rare to come by these days. The film would also mark Tiger Shroff’s first film which doesn’t revolve around himself.
The upcoming movie, War, follows the same pattern: Two men, Kabir (Hrithik Roshan) and Khalid (Tiger Shroff) getting ready for a military showdown. Official sources claim that action cinema lovers will be treated to an array of “never-seen-before death-defying action stunts and jaw-dropping sequences that will keep you on the edge of your seats”. In light of this, I decided to look at some of the finest face-offs in Indian cinema.
