The Ghazi Attack (2017) - Review
17 February 2017 | by nitinjaykumarSee all my reviews

First review of the year, second month of the year and probably the most celebrated movie of the year not in terms of financial budget, but in terms of story line up. Since years, I saw lots of Hollywood movies on War on all three wings of Defense Forces. Famous Bollywood movies were, Border, Lakshya, LOC Kargil and many more (I don't remember much). All these years I was thinking why there is no movie based on Indian Navy and today I got the answer to this question. First thing first, few key points to be noted: 1. Well scripted story. 2. True patriotic movie, would have released on 26th Jan or 15th Aug. 3. Technicality of submarine is well explained on screen. 4. Hats off to VFX director who made look things utmost real. 5. Please appreciate the people who were involved in the development of submarine prototype.

Now not in detail, but overview on movie. The Ghazi Attack starrer Famous Kay Kay Menon (S21 submarine Capt. Rann Vijay Singh), Rana Daggubati (Lt. Commander Arjun), Atul Kulkarni (Exe. Officer Devraj) and Tapsee Pannu (Bangladeshi refugee). This movie is battling with two other simultaneous releases Running Shaadi & Iraada. This is the first Indian War film at Sea.

Movie starts with the ongoing civil war between East (Now, Bangladesh) and West Pakistan in 1971. As Pakistan wants to put firm hold on Bangladesh, they launch an offensive confidential mission to eliminate INS Vikrant. Few of the intercepts are decode which clearly indicated that Indian Navy will go for search operation only, not on attack mode. So S21 Indian Navy submarine was deployed to monitor the location at Bay of Bengal covering East coast of India. Hence during several search operations they detect nothing but yet they find PNS Ghazi is on some mission to Chittagong even though war wasn't declared from both the sides. So there was a tense situation of ethics, rule book theories and orders.

All characters, dialects, interior were so well crafted that there is mere possibility of finding mistakes. And yes audience of India, they take lots of time in accepting these kind of movies. Kay Kay Menon - superb, Rana Daggubati - making a mark, Atul Kulkarni - support to both mentioned characters, Tapsee Pannu - mere role but justifiable.

Defence forces implies on Leadership skills, Team work, Ethics, Valor, Confidence, Decision taker, Discipline and Patriotic. Because of these warriors only we could spend our day peacefully. Must watch movie for everyone. Movie making is an art, not a joke so respect it and appreciate it if possible. See it on big screen only not on your laptop or mobile devices. STOP PIRACY.

"Bold" "Motivating" "Patriotic" "Must watch" Rating: 4/5
