With multiple International action choreographers  involved, It is an action feast for the audience loving the specific genre, A lot of research has gone in choosing those spectacular locations .Siddharth Anand’s efforts in making every frame look super stylish is evident

.Despite so much of positives, some causally written scenes and loose ends, leads to lack of crispiness in the final product. Although the initial portions of the climax are good, prolonged fight towards the end are irritating. With some efforts and concentration on the content, this movie would have been more impactful

Hrithik Roshan lights up the screen with his magnificent screen presence and some mind-blowing action. Tiger shroff is equally good with his super physique and dancing abilities, compliments Hrithik roshan superbly, and this combination has worked big time for War. Vaani kapoor has only couple of scenes, her role does not look forced though. Her character has an important role to play in the storyline, seemed to have worked a lot on her body and is quite impressive. There is so little for the rest of the supporting cast with two heroes and lot of on-going action
