Since the movie has been released in theaters, The Vaccine War review is finally coming out on social media with fans and film critics hailing Vivek Agnihotri for bringing such content of which the Indian audience will be proud.
Talking about The Vaccine War movie review, veteran film critic Taran Adarsh took to his official X handle, formerly known as Twitter and gave Agnihotri's movie 4 out of 5 stars. Taran Adarsh in his detailed post about The Vaccine War review wrote, "#TheVaccineWar is an important film that *should* be watched by one and all… It’s enlightening and inspiring, both… The ‘heroes’ here are our scientists and #VivekAgnihotri brilliantly showcases their sacrifices and strengths in those 2.40 hours… DON’T MISS IT! #TheVaccineWarReview"
"Most importantly, #TheVaccineWar celebrates woman power with utmost honesty and sincerity… The chronology of events, the countering of false narratives, the struggles and obstacles that the scientists encounter and the eventual triumph… #TheVaccineWar encompasses it all seamlessly, without dramatising the goings-on or going overboard.
Although #TheVaccineWar has several poignant moments, I’d like to single out the press conference towards the penultimate stages. Deserves a standing ovation… And it’s a delight to watch #NanaPatekar on the big screen after a hiatus. Truly deserves the prestigious #NationalAward for this act. And so do #PallaviJoshi and #RaimaSen."

More about The Vaccine War
The uniqueness of the movie is The Vaccine War uses names of real people across the ICMR and NIV – a rarity for a mainstream Bollywood film. As a result, The Vaccine War is expected to draw a massive controversy after its release. Talking about its starcast, The Vaccine War features Anupam Kher, Nana Patekar, Sapthami Gowda, Pallavi Joshi, Raima Sen, Girja Oak, Nivedita Bhattacharya, Yagya Turlapath, and Mohan Kapur. Notably, Raima Sen plays the character of a journalist in The Vaccine War. Interestingly, netizens have been quite curious to know about the journalist on whom Raima Sen's character is based. Going by the trailer, it seems like Anupam Kher plays the character of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
The Vaccine War is not only a story about India's race to make a COVID-19 vaccine, but also how the scientists of India gave a befitting reply to some propaganda journalists who amped up their agenda saying 'India can't do it'.
