An unoriginal work again
14 April 2017 | by deepakjha-59702See all my reviews

Still after so may years Indian filmmakers fail to appreciate originality. "The Ghazi Attack" blatantly plagiarizes "Das Boot", a WW2 epic about a U2 submarine and its crew. If you are lucky enough to have seen "Das Boot" you shall share the same animosity for "The Ghazi Attack".

Though it casts some good actors the dialogues are very weak. Even the intense situations fail to thrill. The plot of the movie is to show a cat and mouse game between Indian and Pakistani Submarine. The two rival captains are supposed to be intelligent but its hard to find even a trace of it, all owing to poor research and script.

All in all it is an ambitious attempt but the execution is below par.

5 star out of 10
