Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff starrer action thriller War is still at the top of its game as it approaches the end of its third week. It has crossed the Rs 300 crore mark after 19 days of its box office run.
Clearly, the pairing of two of the best action stars and dancers of Bollywood – Hrithik and Tiger – was too much for the audiences to resist, and
Vaani Kapoor, Ashutosh Rana and Anupria Goenka play supporting roles in the movie. Siddharth Anand has directed the movie on screenplay penned by himself and Shridhar Raghavan.
The Indian Express movie critic Shubhra Gupta gave the movie 2 stars. She wrote in her review, “The girls, Vaani Kapoor as a lissome dancer, and Anupriya Goel as an ace code-cracker, get some air-time, but it's the boys who have all the fun: falling off choppers, zooming about in fast cars, diving off bridges, getting into some bloody fisticuff-time. Shroff should never team up with Roshan again though; on his own, Tiger is a dream dancer with jaw-dropping moves, and can take on five hundred armed desperadoes; when Hrithik is around, though, he recites into the background. ”
“ The last time Hrithik looked sexy was in Dhoom 2 (2006), also a Yashraj movie. The golden streaks have been replaced with a bit of gray at the temples, but the bronze cheekbones decorated with a few fetching scars, the fighting-fit figures in fatigues-and-dark-glasses and the case-hardened look, is full eye- candy. Is not revealing anything by telling you that War looks all set to be a franchise: next time maybe go complete comic-book silly? Now Spy I Will Buy, ”she added.
