'War Chhod Na Yaar' promises refreshing change

New Delhi, Oct 8 : Amid masala films like "Boss", "Krrish 3" and "Ramleela" lined up for release this festive season, debutante director Faraz Haider's medium budget "War Chhod Na Yaar", touted to be the country's first war comedy, promises to bring a refreshing change for the viewers.

Produced by AOPL Entertainment, it has reportedly been made at a budget of Rs.12-Rs.13 crore and the makers are not looking at a wide release. It features Sharman Joshi, Jaaved Jaaferi, Soha Ali Khan, Sanjay Mishra, Mukul Dev and Dalip Tahil.

Scheduled right after Abhinav Kashyap's "Besharam" and before Anthony D'Souza's Akshay Kumar starrer "Boss", the film is expected to survive on its own merit at the box office.

"With so many big films coming, small films have to really struggle for a release date. They either come in between two big releases or with a big release. But if 'War Chhod Na Yaar' has merit, then it will definitely work with the audience," trade analyst Komal Nahta told IANS.

The film marks the debut of a new genre of war comedies in Bollywood. It will present a comical take on the otherwise volatile India-Pakistan relationship. Director Faraz Haider is convinced that people will be able to relate to the film.

"I am trying a genre which the audience has not yet been introduced to. But I feel everyone will connect to my point of view," Haider said.
