Strictly speaking, “War” is not a film. It is a smart product manufactured to gyp you with a hard sell, tempt you to splurge on the multiplex tickets in a festive season when the spirit of indulgence runs high. “War” was always about a catchy title, and about crafting a set of irresistible teasers that promised two of the industry’s hunkiest heroes in full-on action mode, at some of the most gorgeous locations across the planet.
They spent hundreds of crores all of the above. Who needs an engaging story?
I know what you are thinking. Commercial products as “War” are never meant to be about the engaging story. Bollywood would rush to defend such ridiculous filmmaking as dutiful efforts to deliver ”entertainment, entertainment, and entertainment”. The operative word used to defend such stuff is ”timepass”.
