War Chod Na Yaar is India’s first war comedy movie directed and written by Faraz Haider, who has assisted Dibakar Banerjee on “Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye!” as well as a German director in the past, and it has music by Aslam Keyi. The concept just took me. War comedy is unique, not only for Indian cinema but in terms of world cinema.

No one has ever ventured into the realms of making a war satire in Bollywood. A heart warming film War Chhod Na Yaar, is hence making statements for trying out this unique idea. The makers have finalised the release date of the film to 30th August, 2013 along with Prakash Jha’s Satyagraha.
War Chhod Na Yaar a satirical look at why people go to war. A heart-warming story, sheds light on the “so-called” reasons countries wage wars.
Dashing Sharman Joshi, seen for the first time as an army man, teams up with journalist Soha Ali Khan to try and unravel the conspiracy that led to another mindless war. Director Faraz Haider brilliantly portrays the many facets of the war, from confused soldiers wondering why they are at war, to diplomatic tussles between the nations, to greedy politicians serving their own interest behind the camouflage of the war.
Finally a “hatke” movie, finally a movie that beautifully portrays the humour in a sensitive subject, finally a movie to look forward to. So folks, War Chhodo and go watch War Chhod Na Yaar on the 30th of August, 2013.
