War movie trailer:
The trailer shows the rogue behavior of former NIA agent Kabir. The defense ministry of India appoints Khalid to eliminate Kabir. Even though Khalid was once a student of Kabir, he sets on the journey to stop Kabir from his goal. Thus the trailer shows the action-packed dhamaka performed by real-life student mentor onscreen. But the reason behind Kabir’s defensive nature was not shown in the trailer.
War movie storyline:
As shown from the trailer, the movie shows the journey of Khalid to face his former mentor turned traitor Kabir. While unknown to Khalid, Kabir is doing his job as an undercover agent. After knowing the truth behind his mentor’s behavior, Khalid joined hands with Kabir. But while eliminating the enemies, Kabir notices changes in Khalid. Suddenly a twist enters the story. As Khalid tried to poison Kabir. After that, it was revealed that Khalid is an imposter. The actual Khalid martyred on fighting with this imposter. Further the story progresses with Kabir acting as dead and knowing the entire truth. Then the climax sees the final showdown between Kabir and that imposter. In the end, Kabir overpowered the imposter and gave suitable honor to the actual Khalid. Thus the end credits showed Kabir continuing his undercover mission. Followed by Khalid awarded posthumously.
War movie lead actors:
Both Hrithik and Tiger brilliantly showed their action moves in this movie. As mentor as student, their action scenes were superb. Thus the action scenes of them were the plus point of this movie. The supporting cast of Vaani Kapoor, Ashutosh Rana, Anupriya Goenka, and Soni Razdan have done their job perfectly. This will be one of the rarest films showing Ashutosh Rana in a non-negative character.
Music and filming
Yash Raj Films announced the making of action thriller on the birth anniversary of late Yash Chopra. After a gap of 13 years, Hrithik worked under Yash Raj Films. The shooting started in September 2018. And the film got completed in March 2019. The movie consists of two songs and three instrumental background music. All the musics were composed by Vishal-Shekhar and penned by Kumaar. The song ” Jai Jai Shiv Shankar” and ” Ghungroo” are rising in charts. Both the choreography and music in them is good. The dance track of Hrithik with Tiger is awesome.
If one wants to see complete action, then this movie will be superb for them. Though it became the highest-grossing movie of this year in the box office, I would give it 3 out of 5 stars. Because the action and dance-off between them are the high points of the movie. Otherwise, the story is predictable. In short, it is a cat-mouse chasing with a predictable twist at the end. But the twist can be predicted only after the first half of the movie. So all the best of the cast and crew of this movie for their hard work and success.
