War… Chhod Na Yaar begins with a epilogue which sets itself in a rather favourable position. The director is after a Dr.Strangelove-ish take on the political tensions between the subcontinental neighbours; where incredibly absurdist silliness is what the frustratingly grim political situations embody (and where one actor plays not three, but four characters.) The film touches upon the peripherals of war and politics such as rating-obsessed journalism, the quality of food the soldiers are fed upon in the name of sacrificing personal luxuries for the protection of the country and the toothlessness of leaders with quite some sly touch. But with so much in the content to brutally satirize, it’s a pity that the film opts for gimmicky portrayal of its themes and a carelessly convinient crowd-pleasing resolutions where broad (albiet amusing) farce in the opening portions gives way to heavy-handed social message hammering. Dear filmmakers, Rang De Basanti happened, and the sheer magnitude and expanse of corruption in this country is higher than ever. No matter how much Aamir Khan looks into the camera wagging his finger telling us about that tree on Solomon Island, Udaan is still a film closer to reality than a Sooraj Barjatya happy family. No matter how hard Satyagraha tried to awaken the youth, nobody really gave a damn. So, Mr. Director, how about just giving us a good time at the movies and something more to chew on to later instead of trying so desperately to stir a revolution? As Hitchcock would say, “It’s just a movie!”
