Fighter: A Patriotic Action Film with Mixed Reviews
Directed by Siddharth Anand and co-produced by him, Fighter presents the struggles and achievements of the Indian Air Force. Similar to the Top Gun franchise, this film was produced with the Indian military’s approval and support. However, the film’s hyper-nationalistic storyline and lack of action pizazz have received mixed reviews from critics.
The Guardian’s Fighter review notes that while Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone are talented actors, the film’s propaganda-heavy love story and forgettable CGI-heavy aerial combat scenes weigh it down. The reviewer suggests that the characters would have been more compelling if they had been featured in a propaganda-free romance.
Fighter: Public Review and Reaction
Audiences have mixed reactions to Fighter, with some praising the performances of Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone but criticizing the film’s excessive patriotism and lack of originality. Others have expressed disappointment with the film’s plot and execution, despite its high production value.
One viewer commented on ETimes, “The movie was a bit too patriotic for my taste, but Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone were great as always.” Another viewer said, “The action scenes were impressive, but the storyline was weak and predictable.”
Fighter has generated a lot of buzz in India, and it is likely to continue to perform well at the box office. However, the Film‘s mixed reviews may limit its potential to become a global hit. Only time will tell if Fighter will be able to sustain its momentum and achieve commercial success on a larger scale.
