War is an action-led presentation from the YRF stable. The film’s posters, teasers and trailer had been received well by fans. The film pits Hrithik and Tiger against each other and the two play commandos. Hrithik’s character goes rogue and hence, Tiger is sent to neutralize him. Actor Vaani Kapoor adds glamour to the film.
Both Hrithik and Tiger have had a successful run at the box office of late. Hrithik’s underdog take, Super 30, which released earlier this year, has minted a good collection and told the story of Anand Kumar, a Bihar-based math wizard who helped children from under privileged sections crack the elite IIT entrance examinations. Tiger’s film, Student of the Year 2, though, was not as successful at the first film of the franchise but was still a hit.
