A Truly Funny & Well-Acted Film!
25 March 2014 | by namashi_1See all my reviews

Faraz Haider's 'War Chod Na Yaar' is A Truly Funny & Well-Acted Film! A humorous war-satire, that hits the right notes, at most parts.

'War Chod Na Yaar' Synopsis: Captain Rajveer Singh (Sharman Joshi) and Captain Quereshi (Jaaved Jafferi) are battalion captains of India and Pakistan - two countries forever embroiled in conflict and turmoil with each other. However, on the actual battle-field, Raj-Quereshi & their troops form an unlikely friendship & camaraderie, reared on a love for conversations on Hindi film songs & non-veg food. Midst them, arrives Ruth Dutta (Soha Ali Khan), an ambitious TV reporter, assigned to make a documentary on the lives of the soldiers of these two sides, as reported from on-ground. But when war is announced between these two countries, the easy friendship between the two sides is tested & conspiracy theories are hatched.

'War Chod Na Yaar' takes a dig at those who have made India & Pakistan, enemies, who are primarily politicians. But, underneath a strong message on world-peace, this recent under-rated war-comedy, delivers some crackling moments. The sequences in the first-hour belong to the tongue-in-cheek class of humor, while the second-hour concentrates on slap-stick & over-the-top humor.

Faraz Haider's Screenplay tackles a very serious, in a light-hearted manner. Although the final 15-minutes are serious, the rest of the film, concentrates on comedy, which works only as an advantage for the venture. However, the writing in the second-hour, isn't entirely solid. His Direction, on the other-hand, is controlled. Cinematography is appropriate. Editing is average.

Performance-Wise: Jaaved Jafferi is a joy to watch. The versatile actor enacts the bumbling war-hero with mesmerizing ease. Sharman Joshi is natural the core. Soha Ali Khan does nicely as the leading-lady. Sanjay Mishra is terrific, as always. Dalip Tahil, seen in multiple roles, does an impeccable job. Mukul Dev is alright. Manoj Pahwa is adequate.

On the whole, 'War Chod Na Yaar' is impressive work.
