War trailer out: Looks like high on style less on substance

War unites two of the terrific Bollywood actors Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff. The makers of 'War' have released the trailer and it looks spectacular in every sense.

The trailer starts with Hrithik Roshan, who plays Kabir in the film, punching an Army man and firing bullets. We see Hrithik's senior Ashutosh Rana saying we need someone as well-trained and powerful as him must be brought in to take him down. Immediately we see Tiger Shroff's smashing entry. In the 2-minute-25-second trailer, Hrithik plays Tiger's mentor and the story revolves around Khalid trying to kill Kabir.
Action scenes are stunningly shot, we get to see some amazing aerial shots thousands of feet above ground to guns blazing all around. Hrithik and Tiger are just brilliant in the trailer and they share equal screen space in the trailer. Vaani Kapoor has a blink-and-miss appearance in the trailer and is seen romancing Hrithik Roshan.
Though War has a lot of gravity-defying action sequences featuring Hrithik and Tiger, it should have a story that impresses the audience and make them engrossed in it. Going by the trailer plot, it is very similar to Salman Khan’s Ek Tha Tiger and on a whole, 'War' trailer looks high on style and less ok substance.
War is all set to hit the theatres on October 2 along with Chiranjeevi’s Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy. It also brings us a question about whether the Telugu film should be worried about stiff competition.
Coming to Sye Raa, it has a lot of dramatic moments which will keep the audience hooked. Since Farhan and Ritesh Sidhwani are distributing Sye Raa, there’s no worry on theatre allocation.
