Bollywood star hero Hrithik Roshan has now come up with India’s first aerial action thriller, Fighter. The movie, directed by War and Pathaan fame Siddharth Anand, features Deepika Padukone as the female lead.
Fighter Plot Summary
A special team is formed with top Indian Air Force aviators sensing a possible enemy attack on the Srinagar base camp. Shamsher Pathania, a.k.a Patty (Hrithik Roshan), Minni Rathore a.k.a Minni (Deepika Padukone), Sartaj Gill (Karan Singh Grover), and a few others form part of this team. Rakesh Jai Singh, a.k.a Rocky (Anil Kapoor), is their Commanding Officer. One day the terrorist organization, Jaish-e-Mohammed, attacks CRPF soldiers. This leads to a series of combats between India and the terrorists. Who won finally is what the movie is about.
Fighter Cast & Crew
Hrithik Roshan is adorable in this stylish action flick. Hrithik’s towering screen presence is always a treat to watch. His wittiness, dialogue delivery, subtle acting, and charm help the movie big time. He also shares a good chemistry with Deepika Padukone. The actress does her part well. The love track doesn’t affect the film’s flow. Anil Kapoor, Akshay Oberoi, and Karan Singh Grover are fine in their respective roles.
Fighter Music & Visual
As stated earlier, the music and score aren’t satisfactory. Fighter scores full marks regarding the other technical aspects. The camera work by Satchith Paulose is brilliant. The camera movement during the jet fights is exhilarating. The VFX works are well done, and they form the biggest USP of the film. The editing is good.
On the whole, Fighter is a satisfactory aerial action film that is neatly packed with stunning action blocks and Hrithik Roshan’s solid performance. The story doesn’t offer anything new, but Siddharth Anand fills the movie with engaging scenes, and he makes sure there aren’t any dull moments. Deepika Padukone, Anil Kapoor, and Karan Singh Grover are fine in their roles. The emotions, too, work in the second half. But if one expects a solid story, they might get slightly disappointed. If you are okay with this, you can watch Fighter for its technical brilliance.
