- Tiger Shroff’s Acting: Tiger Shroff is one of Bollywood’s brightest shining young actors, but he has never been lauded for his acting. However, he has delivered a finely tuned performance ‘War’. Moreover, Tiger manages to hold his own (and then some!) against Hrithik, who, himself, is in fine fettle and plays the role of Kabir, an Indian army special ops officer, with finesse and believability.
- The Hrithik-Tiger Chemistry: When you initially saw Hrithik and Tiger dancing to the beats of the ‘Jai Jai Shiv Shankar’ song, you probably realized that the duo had something special to offer. And frankly, they do not disappoint. The action stars’ rumble at the end
- The Action: The Siddharth Anand directorial venture has stepped into ‘Fast & Furious’ levels of action cinema greatness with some truly awe-inspiring scenes. The slick and high-octane car/bike chases also add to the ‘oomph factor’.
- The Locations: The makers spent Rs 200 crores on this movie, and it shows. The movie takes you to many exotic locations around the world, with Delhi is the epicentre of the movie. The climax of the movie (spoiler alert ahead) takes place in a European Church, which adds to the sense of gravitas in the movie.
- It Could Set Up a Franchise: Yes, we are again entering ‘Fast & Furious’ territory here, as the makers are envisioning a franchise that is similar in scope, style, and substance. The director Siddharth Anand has mentioned that he had an idea to convert the movie into a franchise, depending on the audience reaction. With the audience going ga-ga over the film, the idea of a franchise might just turn into a reality.
