Critics Review

The Ghazi Attack Review by Renuka Vyavahare on The Times of India gave a rating of 3 on scale of 5 and said “While the visuals and special effects lack finesse, the film compensates for it with its riveting story. The second half keeps you on the edge of your seat as the submarines go head-to-head, firing torpedoes while dodging and defending themselves. Despite the hitches, this underwater thriller is worth a watch. It leaves you in awe of the soldiers, who lay their lives for their country.”

Review by Shalini Langer on Indian Express with the rating 1.5 on 5 said “Clearly, some amount of effort has gone into understanding the makings of a submarine, running of a ship, and even firing of torpedoes and laying of landmines at sea. The film doesn’t cut corners on under-water shots of ships damaged, leaking, hissing and sputtering, even though the first shot of Singh and Arjun first venturing into the unknown is Titanically fake. You know how a film that strategically deploys – literally – the National Anthem, Saare Jahan Se Achcha and even the Tricolour will end. But for a while, The Ghazi Attack shows us glimpses of a crisis-at-sea film it could have been, even with unshaved, unfit Navy men who sweat at the possibility of going food-less for a day.”

Our Ratings: 2.5 out of 5


If you are not in a mood of commercial and typical drama film, then The Ghazi Attack is a must-watch for you. It is a different film from the league with amazing acting and patriotism. This would be a great film for this weekend.
