Film War featuring Bollywood actors Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff released in theatres today. Equipped with breathtaking action scenes, emotions and suspense, the thriller is getting a good response at the box office. What is interesting, the action in the film is no treadmill stuff involving merely guns, fisticuffs and kicks. The filmmakers promise their action choreographer will offer an edge-of-the-seat entertainer.
The fight scenes in the movie have been filmed on the ground, under-water and in the air. There are also bike and car chasing scenes. The film is innovative in the genre of action. In the climax, you get to see something that you have hardly seen in any Hindi film till now. Tiger Shroff and Hrithik Roshan face each other after a long cat-and-mouse chase.
Khalid (Tiger), an Indian soldier, is assigned to eliminate Kabir (Hrithik), a former soldier turned rogue, who mentored Khalid. This leads to ‘war’ between them.
To avoid spoilers, we skip further details of the plot and move to the climax. An intense fight breaks out between the characters essayed by Tiger Shroff and Hrithik Roshan, where they fight each other with a chisel and a hammer. It is exciting to see Hrithik-Tiger fighting with these tools commonly used in home repair.

Box office prospects
While the description above may sound a little funny, the direction and camera work is spellbinding. The film will attract crowds by word-of-mouth. It is likely to do good business at the box office. However, this film having cost Rs 200 crore, the margin has to be huge to make profits.
