Fighter Movie Analysis

Before 'Fighter' director Siddharth Anand's films 'War' and 'Pathan' were Indo-Pak & Terrorist films. Action is the highlight of both of them. This time the same backdrop was taken. But, there was a change in Siddharth Anand's direction. Human emotions have been touched in the story and narration. Focused more on drama than action.

'Fighter' war is not only on terrorism... The best pilot in the country fought against himself! Two of the best pilots in the country have made a war between themselves! Even a war to say that a soldier is no more than a country!

Audiences who have seen the promotional films will get the idea that 'Fighter' was shot in the background of our Air Force's war against the terrorists responsible for the bomb blasts in India. But... director Siddharth Anand gave a surprise. Air Force pilots took more time to establish their characters than terrorists. There are no huge action thrills in 'Fighter' like 'War' and 'Pathan' movies. Less action, more drama & emotion. It is a bit stretched in the middle. A lot of liberties were taken in the climax.

Aerial combat scenes in 'Fighter' are good. Well done too. The audience likes it. The background music did not show much effect. Goosebumps moments in action sequences would have been more if effective re-recording had been added. Songs are just ok. The camera work is good.

Siddharth Anand's choice of story, story, and scenes is nothing new. Already seen in previous patriotic movies. However, along with the background of the Air Force, the actors have brought a fresh feeling to 'Fighter'.

Fighter Movie Actors Performance:

Hrithik Roshan's swag anchors many scenes. He is a perfect original in the role of a pilot. Be it Hrithik's handsome looks, his smiley face when he says 'please', or his acting in emotional scenes, Hrithik Roshan impresses in every scene. Deepika Padukone as Minna, Akshay Kumar as Rocky, Karan Singh Grover, Abhishek Oberoi... everyone brought their characters to life. Rishabh Sahni who played the role of a terrorist is okay. The scene where the father greets Deepika is inspiring for girls who have given up their family members for careers and everyone who dreams of reaching the top in life.

In short about 'Fighter'... a commercially packaged patriotic movie. The story, narration, and scenes are not new. But, if you get bored watching it for a long time, it won't beat you. The way the aerial combat scenes are shot is good. Hrithik Roshan is a patriotic film with elements that the audience wants. Commercial movie lovers will like it. Not if 'War' and 'Pathan' range in 'Fighter' movie. If you want action from Siddharth Anand with those two films in mind, you will be disappointed.
