User Reviews

A praiseworthy effort, pleasant war satire.
18 October 2013 | by ajit2106See all my reviews

Defense Minister of India (Dalip Tahil), wants a media attention and visits the India-Pakistan Border with a channel's reporter Ruth Dutta (Soha Ali Khan). She meets Indian Army Captain Raj (Sharman Joshi) who shares a friendly gesticulation with General M. Qureshi (Javed Jaffrey) belonging Pakistani army, , convoyed by their soldiers. Then there is an involvement of dirty politics and politicians from both the country who make them fight with each other and the sole reason is political gain.

Faraz Haider did a commendable work here in his directorial debut with 'War Chhod Na Yaar'. The concept & script bring a fresh breeze amongst the mindless movies these days. What work here are the intention and some perfect satirical context. The narrative gives us an awareness of the atrocities of war and we can feel the compulsion of soldiers. It clearly indicates that nobody wants war but there are some catalysts that aggravate the reaction.

We witness many elements which are real amusements such as "antakshari" among the soldiers from both sides, playing cards at the border surreptitiously, commander talking about girlfriends some trespassers are being looted every time they appear on the screen by same man.

Most part of the film has been shot beautifully in Rajasthan. The murky desert looks fantastic with the use of torch lights, most of the scene have been shot at night which gives an eccentric feel.

Sharman Joshi does a wonderful work here and looked really authentic. Javed Jaffery delivers a perfect performance with natural comic timing as always. Sanjay Mishra is always a treat to watch with his delightful portrayal and perfectly delivered punches in his peculiar style. Dalip Tahil steals the show playing multiple roles of Indian Defense Minister, Pakistani Minister, Chinese General and as an American Senator with perfect US accent.

'War Chhod Na Yaar' manages to delivers what it desires. It works as a surprise and leaves strong impact that war is always pointless.
