MOVIE REVIEW: Director Siddharth Anand hits a triumphant hat-trick with “Fighter,” after War & Pathaan, now delivers a film that blends adrenaline-pumping action, heartfelt drama, and unwavering patriotism. From breathtaking aerial combat sequences to moments brimming with emotion, Fighter delivers the action-packed experience that it promised.
Visually stunning cinematography coupled with top-notch CGI and VFX sets the stage for an immersive cinematic journey. The mix of action, emotion, patriotism, music, humor, and a hint of romance ensures there’s something for everyone in this larger-than-life spectacle. While the story may tread familiar ground and sometimes feel predictable, but its gripping screenplay and aerial aspect add a fresh layer to the narrative.
Despite its clichéd storyline, Fighter succeeds in delivering a thrilling big-screen experience, thanks to the maker’s keen understanding of audience expectations. The intermission point leaves viewers on the edge of their seats, while the emotional scenes in the second half tug at the heartstrings.
Hrithik Roshan shines as the charismatic lead, delivering a captivating performance that commands attention. Deepika Padukone impresses with a well-written character, adding depth to the film’s message. Anil Kapoor delivers a flawless performance, while the supporting cast, including Akshay Oberoi and Karan Singh Grover, provide strong support. Rishabh Ravinder Sawhney’s portrayal of the antagonist is menacing, although his performance falls slightly short of expectations.
