Siddharth Anand’s Fighter is a visually stunning aerial action film that tells the story of two Indian Air Force pilots, Patty (Hrithik Roshan) and Minal (Deepika Padukone). The film is a remake of the 1986 Hollywood film Top Gun, and it borrows heavily from that film’s plot, characters, and visuals.

The film’s positive points are numerous. The aerial action sequences are some of the best ever seen in a Hindi film. The filmmakers used state-of-the-art special effects to create realistic and exciting dogfights. The film’s cast is also excellent. Hrithik Roshan is charismatic and believable as Patty, and Deepika Padukone is strong and determined as Minal. The supporting cast, including Anil Kapoor, Karan Singh Grover, and Rishi Kapoor, is also good.

The film’s negative points are few, but they are noticeable. The second half of the film is somewhat slow-paced and drags in places. The film also lacks some emotional depth. The relationship between Patty and Minal is never fully developed, and the film’s climax is somewhat anticlimactic.

Overall, Fighter is a well-made and entertaining film. It is a must-see for fans of aerial action films. However, it is not a perfect film, and it may disappoint viewers who are expecting something groundbreaking.


If you have not seen Top Gun, you will likely enjoy Fighter. The film is a faithful adaptation of the original, and it offers some new twists and turns. If you have seen Top Gun, you will still find Fighter to be enjoyable, but you may be disappointed by the similarities between the two films.
