War trailer: Tiger Shroff squares off against Hrithik Roshan in epic chase
Siddharth Anand’s War goes all guns blazing to ambush the 2019 box-office
Yash Raj Films has dropped the trailer of their action-heavy mentor-protégé face-off film, War. Hrithik Roshan takes charge as Kabir, a former Indian agent/soldier gone rogue against his dear state.
The trailer opens with Kabir, Dark Knight Rises-style, hijacking a plane and offing the cargo-carrying soldiers inside. Back in Delhi, the military head (Ashutosh Rana) is chastised for the situation. As an antidote, a special task force is put together, led by Khalid (Tiger Shroff), one of the top soldiers trained under Kabir. Thus begins a slick, globe-trotting adventure pitting the righteous protégé against his rebellious mentor.
Directed by Siddharth Anand, War appears to be filled with epic action set-pieces, ranging from hand-to-hand combat to missile warfare. There’s also a cavalcade of cool vehicles to gape at, including sports cars, SUVs, monoplanes, racing bikes, choppers, and even navy ships.
Vaani Kapoor is the female lead of War. The film has been shot in Spain, Georgia, Italy, Portugal, Sweden, and India. The music is composed by Vishal-Shekhar with lyrics by Kumaar.
The film’s action directors include The Dark Knight’s Paul Jennings, Death Race 3: Inferno’s Franz Spilhaus, Snowpiercer’s SeaYoung Oh, and Tiger Zinda Hai’s Parvez Shaikh.
War is scheduled for release on Gandhi Jayanti (October 2).
