About Fighter

The film, directed by Siddharth Anand, features Hrithik Roshan, Deepika Padukone, Anil Kapoor, Karan Singh Grover and Akshay Oberoi as IAF officers. It is about a new and elite unit, Air Dragons, which is commissioned by the Air Headquarters in response to militant activities in Kashmir.

As an excerpt from Hindustan Times' Fighter movie review read, "Fighter is a full-on entertainer that engages and excites in equal parts. It is high on patriotism but it never resorts to chest-thumping chants of Jai Hind or Hindustan Zindabad. The scene where Hrithik makes a reference to IOP (India Occupied Pakistan) in the climax certainly calls for loud cheers, and proves why Hindi films know best how to show love for their country. Watch Fighter for a pure paisa vasool experience, good-looking performances and some gravity-defying aerial action that won’t give you a headache but leave you with a sense of pride."
