The Movie: The Ghazi Attack
Caption: Patriotic war against Pakistan
Savvy’s Rating: 3.5 / 5
Zephyr: Story, Screenplay, Cinematography and Actors
- Tapsi’s role
- Too much dramatization on under water missile attacks by Pak and S-21 saved from those
- No clarity on communication loss on the ship
Patriotic movies have faired well mostly, especially where Indians win over Pakistan. Ok, I know what you are saying. I totally understand Saif’s movies – Phantom or Agent Vinod – didn’t do well. Sometimes, it’s the content that drives the success not too much commercialization. You know what I mean!!
These days whenever movies are done, at least one party is not happy and sues the movie crew. In order to avoid any inconveniences, the film started off with a lengthy disclaimer covering fiction, dramatization, no resemblance of any characters dead or alive, etc. Smart move, huh!
I agree to a point that there was indeed more drama in the story, however, it still can be called as a decent flick. One could see hard efforts put in by the team to make this movie a success. Except Rana, none of the characters come from star studded image. The theme is what brought all of them together. Including Rana, everybody got a good opportunity to be part of this movie (purely my opinion).
After “Leader”, Rana’s engaging performance is felt in this movie. Looks like he should stick to “Arjun” as screen name. Superstition you see. 🙂
This movie certainly calls for commendation for thinking of recognizing Indian Marine team. Army, Navy, Marines and anyone – from any Country – who saves the motherland and the borders are praiseworthy. I am always up for movies that are made on unsung heroes.
Story in a nutshell:
Ghazi attack is a mission by S-21 submarine to save Vishakhapatnam (India) from Pakistan’s attack. It takes audience to 1970 Indo-Pak era. Politics, pressure, internal conflicts, Country’s image, unwanted enmity, collective team spirit, patriotism, and finally ultimate success is what shown very well. Don’t miss wonderful screenplay and cinematography.
What worked well:
- Screenplay is thrilling and engaging ; audiences’ emotions run high along with characters
- Cinematography and graphics are flawless
- All characters have justified their roles beyond the expectations
Watch it with your friends and families.
