War recorded the highest opening for a film in 2019, surpassing Bharat, Mission MangalSaaho, and KalankIt became the highest-grossing Hindi film ever in India, dethroning YRF's Thugs of Hindostan.

The presence of two of the most popular Bollywood stars, Hrithik and Tiger, on screen for the first time contributed to the success. It was previously reported the film had sold 4.05 lakh tickets in major multiplexes before its release, beating the pre-release figures of many big-budget features.

Vaani Kapoor, Ashutosh Rana, Soni Razdan, and Arif Zakaria play supporting roles in War.

Talking about film's performance at the box office director Siddharth Anand says in a press release, “It has been simply phenomenal to receive this kind of love and adulation from audiences. War was made with the hope to give India its biggest original action spectacle and the entire team is ecstatic to get the desired result at the box office. When you have two of the biggest action superstars in your film, you would want your film to overdeliver on audience expectations and make a big statement. We are overwhelmed that War has become a must watch film for the entire country. It is a moment to treasure and celebrate for all of us.

Shot across seven countries, the plot of the film revolves around agent Khalid (Tiger) who is on a mission to hunt down his mentor Kabir (played by Hrithik Roshan). The film released on 2 October and despite facing clash with Chiranjeevi's epic period film Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy and Todd Phillips' DC film, Joker, the film is having its golden run at the box office. The success of War has surely made up for Yash Raj Films' last box office disaster, Thugs of Hindostan.

Mismatched review: Netflix India show makes teenage adolescence look like a statement, not a stage of life

Mismatched effectively commits the ultimate screenwriting sin: it tells an awful lot, but never really shows. Every moment and feeling is spoon-fed to the point of exhaustion.
