War Chhod Na Yaar: India’s first war comedy

The film is India’s first war comedy directed by Faraz Haider, who has assisted Dibakar Banerjee before

Filmmakers in India have done quite a few experiments and many of them have worked as well. When Go Goa Gone which was India’s first ZomCom as the makers called it was about to release, many people were skeptical about the movie. But when it released, everyone who saw the film was left awestruck.

Now we hear that yet another experiment called War Chhod Na Yaar is on its way. War Chhod Na Yaar is India’s first war comedy which is directed by Faraz Haider, who had earlier assisted Dibakar Banerjee in Oye Lucky Lucky Oye. This film is Faraz Haider’s maiden venture and he’s leaving no stone unturned in making the film as authentic as possible. A major portion of the film is shot in the deserts of Rajasthan so that the viewer can be as close to a war-like zone as possible. He says, “We did not want to shoot in a studio or recreate a set because I wanted to keep it really authentic.”

He adds, “War Chhod Na Yaar is a comic-satire shown through the prism of war. The movie has handled a subject as serious as war with the weapon of humor.”

The film will have Sharman Joshi, Soha Ali Khan and Jaaved Jaaferi in lead roles. Whether this experiment will work or no is still yet to be seen. All we can say is that we are really excited about this movie. Are you?
