Every Indian should watch The Ghazi Attack. Brilliantly portrayed
19 February 2017 | by ketgup83See all my reviews

Thanks to the world of cinema, we get to hear so much of unknown stories which is stunning and yet nerve breaking. The Ghazi Attack is one such dynamic and encouraging story of our Indian soldiers fighting to save the country which was never heard of.

The Ghazi Attack tells the story of Indian men on board the submarine S21 when it is attacked by the Pakistani submarine, PNS Ghazi who intend to take out the city of Vishakapatnam from the map of India.

Directed by debutant, Sankalp Reddy, The Ghazi Attack is one such film which will keep you engaged right from the beginning till the electrifying climax. The powerful true story of our Indian Navi, The Ghazi Attack is the first Indian which talks about the submarine and the makers have done a fabulous job in portraying the stress, blood and sweat displayed by our honorable soldiers. Couple of scenes did caught my attention - Pakistani missiles missing the Indian submarine by few meters have been brilliantly portrayed. The interaction between Rana, Kay Kay Menon and Atul Kulkarni is one of the highlights of the film. Performances by each and every actor is mesmerizing, especially Kay Kay Menon and Atul Kulkarni.

Overall, a spellbinding tale of war which is cherished and witness on silver screen. Excellent 4/5
