Fighter early reviews and reactions

Talking about Shah Rukh Khan's reaction to the film, Siddharth Anand told News18, “He loved the trailer. In fact, I met him the day it was released. He loved the look of the villain and the stunts. According to him, the CGI appeared very seamless. He was very impressed.” Siddharth and Shah Rukh worked together in Pathaan. It also featured Deepika Padukone.

Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh recently reviewed the film on X, “Fighter is a smartly-woven product that steers away from blatant jingoism, yet makes a solid statement as the drama unfolds… Well-mounted, with some awe-inspiring visuals, aerial combat portions, clap worthy dialogue and a terrific second half, Fighter delivers what it promises: a larger-than-life big-screen experience… Most importantly, Fighter is a fitting homage to those bravehearts who guard our nation selflessly.”

“Hrithik Roshan is, without doubt, the show stopper. He displays valour, restraint and rage with incredible honesty. He owns every sequence he appears in, makes every moment come alive with a stellar act… #DeepikaPadukone is top notch, handling the demanding part with flourish. The on-screen pairing gives the film that extra sheen,” he added.
