War Chhod Na Yaar Review: 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.
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.
