The War trailer is high on adrenalin and probably has some of the best action sequences seen in Indian cinema. It is the story of two frenemies – Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff. The former is an Indian spy gone rogue while the latter, his student, is sent to finish him. What follows is a chase across continents – from the deserts to the snow-capped mountains, with Vaani Kapoor providing the glamour quotient in a movie that will clearly be high on testosterone drive.
WAR looks set to wow the audience with its action quotient. Ashutosh Rana seems cast in a role similar to the one the late Girish Karnad did as the spy agency boss in the Tiger series with Salman Khan. The National School of Drama product can be expected to bring gravitas to the role.
For the first time perhaps, snow and the mountains in a Yash Raj film won’t be about chiffons and songs but action.
WAR, a YashRaj production, releases on 2 October and is directed by Siddharth Anand.
