Both Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff fully commit to the action, bringing swag to the big stylish sequences and a visceral energy to the one-on-one punch-ups in the movie.
The chief trouble with War is that all the space is divvied up between Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff, that the poor baddies don’t really get a chance.
Tiger Shroff and Hrithik Roshan make the perfect pair --almost Batman and Robin-like-- with Shroff’s earnestness and admiration a good foil to Roshan’s wiser ways.
War, a big spectacle film, is definitely worth a watch for the sheer joy of seeing this dream pair of Hrithik and Tiger on the silver screen.
War is an ode to star power, which pits Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff together for the first time and capitalises on their famous idol-idoliser energy to draw us into a world of espionage, action and camaraderie...
Powered by two loose-limbed and resolutely stone-faced male leads, Hrithik and Tiger, War is all style and no substance.
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.
WAR seems to have just begun, here's to hoping for a better future without a sequel.
War is a crowd-puller, but it isn’t meant to further the cause of cinema. It will entertain you. But if you plan to take something away from a film, watch Joker instead.
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.
WAR is a paisa-vasool action entertainer which has style as well as enough twists and turns to keep the viewers engrossed. At the box office, the extended weekend, dazzling action, stunning international locales and stylish execution will ensure mammoth footfalls for the film.
Hrithik and Tiger share a mentor-protege relationship in real life as well and it has been perfectly captured in the film. Hrithik is in his element here playing the experienced agent and Tiger adds the naive charm of a newbie to the proceedings.Watch the film for its world-class action and be prepared for the sequels to come down the line...
Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff share fantastic chemistry, but War isn't half as fun as what the trailer promised
The overall excitement in the screenplay compensates for these flaws and the inordinately loud background score, especially if you are in an indulgent mood having accepted that in most departments War is conventional Bollywood.
If you are a Hrithik, Tiger fan and want to enjoy an action-packed spectacle of two good-looking men bruised and bleeding with guns and bullets giving them company, then 'War' is for you.Also, the twists and turns can boggle your brain but no I am not giving away any of the spoilers here!
WAR is that film that is perfect for a mid-week holiday. It has enough to keep you talking about it for the next couple of days. And ladies, if you start fantastising about Hrithik Roshan once again, do not blame us. Those gleaming biceps are lustworthy and how.
Audience Reviews for War
For a film titled War and which was released in India on the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi who advocated non-violence throughout his adult life, when you look closely into the plot, there's not even a modicum of war element in the film. Everything that you see is what can be described as a precursor of a war (presumably between two differing nations), unless the makers want to heighten the stature of the hostility between the two soldiers and project it as war when it is merely an advanced form of paintball battle with disloyal teammates. Maybe that is it. TN.

Audience, and thrills...
'War' is an amazing, classy tale so well-narrated that you want to rise from your seat and just whistle to the actors doing their thing. And it is also the most entertaining, gorgeous action thriller ever produced in Bollywood, and elevates the Hollywood standards even more than Dhoom 2.
The film is an uplifting experience. It has classy action, driving its luxurious ferrari from darkness to dazzle to action to masala mindlessness. But watch Siddharth's 'War' because it is also excellently written and entertainingly performed. Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff really make the film do nicely.
I am going with three-and-a-half for 'War'. Despite the sultry awfulness of 'Saaho', the film is an uplifting experience. It is never boring. And it is one of the best Hindi films of the year.
