Review: The Ghazi Attack: 1 of the Best Patriotic Movies! ****

1549th BLOG POST -->>

Seriously speaking, I didn’t know about this movie “The Ghazi Attack” until I got a mail in my inbox from BookMyShow asking me to book the tickets for this movie. Still, I was skeptic about this movie and almost ignored it. I got a call from another family in society saying that they have an extra ticket and will I want to accompany them. By the time, the acclaimed reviews were already out for the movie and I thought of giving it a try. Now, that I have watched this movie, I can easily say it is one of the best patriotic movies made in India which does not waste time in useless backdrops and romantic tales but keeps its focus on how the Army is planning to attack a Pakistan submarine.

Though the story is fictionally based on how the Ghazi, submarine of Pakistan, must have been attacked by India’s submarine, but it is made in such a manner that you will never find it to be based on assumptions. As a director, Sankalp Reddy, has done an appraisable job. The kind of intense, ambition and passion was needed to make this story and with the kind of budget associated with it, it is great to see how he has managed to make such an effective movie which keeps its impact after hours of you moving out of the theater.

The first half is all about how the character of Kay Kay Menon and Rana Daggubati are at loggerheads where one is an aggressive captain who wants to attack the enemy whereas another is at total service of the department and wants to stop the captain from breaking any rules. The second half is more about the war and how Indian submarine finally decides to attack and do not return without blasting Ghazi, Pakistan’s submarine. The great thing is that even Pakistan’s side is shown equally intelligent and tough as India’s side unlike many other patriotic movies.

The performances are incredible. The best is delivered by Kay Kay Menon, Atul Kulkarni, Om Puri, Rana Daggubati in the mentioned order. Tapsee Pannu has almost nothing to play in this movie. Her part is not even of 8 minutes in totality. All the other supporting casts are great and really supportive. The dialogues are amazing and make you feel angry, sad and even giggle at times. The action sequences are powerful. The underwater parts are also nicely filmed except little bit of problems here and there which are avoidable. Overall, it is really a great movie to spend your 2.5 hours in. I give it 4 stars out of 5.
