12 Top Rated Bollywood Movies On War According To IMDb


These are some of the top war based Indian films that have been rated on IMDB:

1. Shershaah – 8.8

The writers got very little creative with the script and they stuck to the facts which proved to be a very good move. The story did not have the Bollywood unnecessary masala but the reality of the hero whom we all know today, the character build-up was beautifully done. Most parts of the script were in Punjabi dialect and the part of young Vikram Batra was in Pahari dialect to represent their linguistic background which has been missing from Bollywood for a really long time. The dialogues were written in a manner where a viewer would flow into it as a spectator watching two real-life people converse.

A war movie without unnecessary gruesome scenes of patriotism puked over it. It was genuine and even the scenes with violence would fill you with rage over the injustice done. By the end of the movie, you will connect and feel sympathetic towards the young captain. The song which was being played in the backdrop was already a hit but while I watched it the lyrics felt extremely appropriate for the scene.

That war glorification by decorated journalists is vague but the young men and women laying their lives for our country, that is the true sense of patriotism. Captain Vikram Batra was a hero even before he joined the army but his purpose in life saved many lives. His is a story that is a must-watch.

Watch Shershaah on Amazon Prime Video.

2. Uri: The Surgical Strike – 8.2

Based on the Surgical strike carried out by the Indian army in 2016, the movie is indeed a pleasure to watch. It is well-paced and keeps you engrossed throughout. Although the story is predictable (since we all have read about the utterly successful mission) the movie still keeps you glued. There are moments that will give goosebumps, make you laugh, will moist your eyes but surely make you feel immensely proud of our national heroes and their capabilities.

In terms of star cast, this has been yet another stellar performance by Vicky Kaushal who seems to be growing from strength to strength. He is brilliant as Major Vihan Singh Shergil and is convincing as both, a ruthless military officer on the battlefield and a gentleman (caring son, a loving brother) off the field. He has been well supported by Paresh Rawal (as Govind-based on Ajit Doval), Yami Gautam, Mohit Raina, and Kirti Kulhari.
