War Chhod Na Yaar Movie Review

Ratings:2.5/5 Review By: Rajeev Masand Site:Masand's Verdict (CNN IBN: IBNlive)
Well-intentioned but over-simplistic, War Chhod Na Yaar casts a satirical eye on the hot-button issue of border relations between India and Pakistan, and turns the spotlight on the troops stationed either side of the barbed-wire fence. War Chhod Na Yaar succeeds in treating a grim subject with a light hand. Sharman Joshi and Javed Jaffrey are in good form, but the script loses steam well before the finish line. I’m going with two-and-a-half out of five. It’s not extraordinary, but it’s got some clever ideas.

WAR CHHOD NA YAAR has a unique concept. It not only projects the thorny issue in light vein, but also makes a comical comment on the politicians of both sides as well as the Chinese and American interference. There's a lot of tongue in cheek humor and over the top amusement to drive home a message. Clearly, the director intends to say a big 'No' to warfare or hostility, but while the intentions are right and most honorable, what comes across on screen looks like a half-hearted, amateurish attempt. On the whole, WAR CHHOD NA YAAR is an interesting idea, coupled with noble intentions, but is treated amateurishly.

War Chhod Na Yaar, a satire on constantly warring India and Pakistan, has a few fun moments. But the few bright spots are buried in reams of amateurish craft, dreary songs, half-hearted patriotism and feeble jokes.I only wish the material had lived up to its potential.

Black comedy is a rare genre in Bollywood and hats off to Haider for bringing it to the forefront. His subject is relevant, given the many unpleasant cross-border incidents that have occurred of late. Unfortunately, a poor script and juvenile execution let the promising premise down. After a while, the characters start looking caricaturish, especially the 'forever meat-hungry' Pakistani army. There's an underlying tragedy that lies at the heart of this film but it gets overshadowed by too many childish gags.

War Chhod Na Yaar would've been a considerably better film if it were more balanced. The Pakistanis are still made to look like a bunch of malnourished idiots who think of India as their big brother. The Indian army on the other hand, is the paragon of goodness, wit, and soldiering. Was this a necessary evil to get the film released? If it was, the war in that case is lost anyway.

The film reaches a major road block in the second half where it seems like a headless chicken trying to cross the road. Most of the conversation gets heavy and Soha’s character tends to get a bit annoying with her becoming a narrator rather than participant in the given scenario. An earnest attempt, the film fails to sustain our interest in a weak second half.

The first half of War Chhod Na Yaar has the pitch-perfect tone of a war comedy with some real gems that bind the narrative. So what happens when all jokes have been cracked and comic scenarios explored? The film begins its descend downhill. Suddenly, delightful irreverence gives way to unwarranted melodrama coupled with the makers’ lofty ideas of positive change brought on by a revolution.All said and done though, this is a start. Hope India’s second war comedy will stick to the brief.

India's "first war comedy" starts off with spark. But soon the whole thing loses steam. Gags about Chinese products that don't work dry up quite quickly too, so by the time we come to the point where a China-made nuclear bomb is about to go off, it all goes phuss. Pity because the theme, fronted by the two lead actors, had the potential to be a zinger.

Though ‘War Chhod Na Yaar’ is a very one-sided view of barbed-wire offences, it does nevertheless fire some mirthful missiles at politicians on both sides who make mileage out of the mythical animosity between the two countries. Very rarely do we get a chance to smile about the grim reality of war. This film gives a nimble twinkle-eyed satirical slant to the scourge of war. Warm and well-packaged with intelligent performances, ‘War Chhod Na Yaar’ flounders when it abandons the human aspect to get into the nuclear zone. Then it`s time to groan.

 Faraz Haider’s War Chhod Na Yaar is a welcome and refreshing satire on wars. The Indo-Pak border counts as one of the world’s most hostile regions but Haider’s tender story dishes out a wickedly told film filled with engaging humor that will have you in splits. The commendable effort and the clever take on the theme of war puts across a more poignant message of futility of wars without trivializing the intention of it!

  1. Taran teri ga00d me kide pade

  2. movie paisa vasul hai ya nhi???? koi to batao????

    1. Movie kuch great nahin hain but Time pass hain you will not get bored

  3. fully paisa vasul movie !
    everyone was rolling in laughter !
    Give it a watch :)

  4. Film is entertaining with a comic concept which is new to Indian Industry and it will keep you engage, you will not feel bored.

  5. No one wants war. No one likes to participate in something that harms common people’s peace, prosperity and harmony. We all believe that. At least, we tend to believe that. So when it comes to our ‘not so sweet’ political relationship with our neighboring country, we all at some level have tried to imagine what if the circumstances at the border were not as tensed as it may look sitting in our drawing rooms. The very same is the premise on which first-time writer-director Faraz Haider tries to build nation’s first war-comedy WAR…CHHOD NA YAAR!

    On the very first scene, we see our Indian army commander Rana [played by Sharman Joshi] and the chief of Pakistani army outpost [played by Javed Jaffrey] secretly leaving their bases in the darkest hour of the midnight, only to meet at the ‘no man’s land’ not for some revenge seeking war but a card game [Later, they have been shown playing Antakshari also with their respective teams]. The intention is very clear. Make every situation funnier that you think it could be but the problem is the writing lacks originality and innovation. The gags and wits are as if taken from either common man’s raw understandings and presumptions about issues and the mechanism or from an old book of anti-Pakistan jokes. You really can’t be biased with showing most of the good-hearted smart people at your side and the dumbest ones on the other [exclude politicians; they are all the same everywhere]…especially when at the end, you are heading towards a solid meaning message to all the humankind.

    Film sure shows a humorous take on the political intervention of other countries [China providing innovative weapons and artilleries to Pakistan, Uncle Sam giving a generous financial aid to India to launch the war] and the caricature-ish low-IQed politicians from both the sides. There is also the TRP-hungry media that masters in how to fabricate regular News feeds to make it large enough for grabbing more eye-balls.

    Performances are strictly average and very conventional & unsurprising. Sharman Joshi and Soha Ali Khan Pataudi are just as you expect them to be. Javed Jaffrey is confident and looks the most promising of them all. Sanjay Mishra repeats himself roles after roles and offers nothing new. Dalip Tahil plays multiple roles of politicians from all sides but if anyone can really make you laugh whole-heartedly is out of the question. Mukul Dev plays an intruder terrorist from Afghanistan who always gets caught by an Indian intelligence officer in disguise patrolling over border-line.

    At the end, WAR…CHHOD NA YAAR is comical but only in its concept & the aspiration it dreams to achieve. I wish the gags would have been fresh and a little matured in nature. Being loyal to your country is one thing but demeaning others by attacking continuously on their state of financial crisis is completely other. Wait for the satellite release and you may like it on a lazy Sunday but as of now, it is not better than a 1-hour episode of comedy shows on your popular TV channel. [2/5]

  9. at least it brings the motivation of rejoining friendship .no war only yaar

  10. War does no good to the people of a country. It only leads to destruction of resources in the society. With such a noble thought, director Faraz Haider has come up with his satirical comedy ‘War Chodh Na Yaar’.

    Rut Dutta (Soha Ali Khan), a journalist, is called by a senior politician (Dalip Tahil) and is asked to cover a war story at the border. At the border she sees a completely friendly environment between the two countries and its soldiers. Captain Raj (Sharman Joshi), Indian army, and his Pakistani counterpart Captain Qureshi (Javed Jafferi) are often seen playing antakshari in the free time. They both are not in favor of any war. What happens in the end?

    War Chodh Na Yaar tells you the story of these two countries- India and Pakistan, who have been fighting since independence. It also tells you the story of their corrupt politicians who are been dominated by the superpowers of the world and how do they exploit our country for their mutual benefits.

    The film, though made with a good thought, is extremely lengthy and boring. There are times when you feel to get out if the theatre as soon as possible (I myself slept once in between). The writing is extremely lazy and that goes against the whole idea. The film fails to keep your interest in it. You lose it in the first half itself.

    Sharman Joshi and Javed Jafferi, both do justice to their respective roles. There are times when they make you both laugh and cry which is the best part about any actor. Soha Ali Khan is okay. The supporting cast namely- Dalip Tahil, Manoj Pahwa and Sanjay Mishra is good.

    Overall, ‘War Chodh Na Yaar’ is just good for watching at your laptops or on the television after a few months. It does not deserve your hard-earned money.

    Rating- 2/5

  11. badddddddddddddddd move power only pakistan
