Zest of a Black Comedy
12 October 2013 | by (India) – See all my reviews

The movie starts with both leaders of the respective army playing cards at the border in late night and this is unknown to rest all the soldiers of both the sides.

The movie then unfolds to the stories happened 18 hours back and comes to the present till interval and then heads for the second half.

Here, we are shown how the media and political groups are hungry for attention and also getting awakened at the time when it was needed the most.

War chodd na yaar shows something that is actually known but always been held as a covert stuff just because of the agenda of the people at the top.

WCNY mostly focuses on the sentiments of the people from both the sides, the soldiers as well as the common people. Watch out for the scenes where an Indian girl chats with a Pakistani guy on FB about the things happening at the border.

The movie will be remembered for the comic timing and a common subject dealt with a different view. Direction by Faraz Haider is promising.

Performances are top notch from all the actors. Sharman,Javed Jaffrey , Soha Ali Khan and Mukul Dev are brilliant. Special mention for Mr.Dalip Tahil who plays four roles at the same time and does it with zeal. Sanjay Mishra and Manoj Pahwa also don't look underused.

Songs are good but the song at the start showing soha falling for sharman and only capturing him in her camera could have been avoided.

In all its a refreshing change from the path that is always taken by Bollywood comedy movies. There is no room for boredom here.

For the team of WCNY, i would dedicate this quote of Ralph Waldo Emerson ,"Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail. "

Tis movie has achieved it.
