Ghazi Review :

Rana Daggubati starrer ‘Ghazi’ is one of the most awaited  Hindi-Telugu-Tamil trilingual movie, directed by Sankalp Reddy.  A movie based on the India-Pakistan war of 1971. It is the first underwater war drama and a  tale on how the Indian Navy manages  to destroy the Pak Submarine PNS Ghazi, off  the Vizag coast. The movie has voice over from Megastar Chiranjeevi, Suriya and Amitabh Bachchan for its Telugu, Tamil and Hindi version respectively.  Let’s see the story line.

 

Story:  The movie is set during the early 70’s when Pakistan army send a special submarine called Ghazi  for the help of his soldier who were fighting  with Bangladesh. There was only one way to send Ghazi for the help through the Indian waters and also by destroying the Indian warship INS Vikranth which stands in its way.  The Indian authority gets this news through some crucial Intelligence reports. Captain Ranvijay Singh (Kay Kay Menon), Lt.Commander Arjun Varma (Rana) and Devraj(Atul Kulakarni)  takes  the responsibility and  are on a mission on S21, an Indian submarine.  How the entire team of S21 stay underwater for 18 days and manage to fight against Ghazi, form rest of the story.

 

 Plus Points:

  • Performance of Rana Daggubati
  • Kay Kay Menon
  • Atul Kukarni
  • Direction

 Minus Points:

-

 Performance: Rana Daggubati delivers his wonderful performance and once again he proved that he has ability to carry the entire responsibility of the movie on his soldier.  He stands on the top.  Ghazi has efficient supporting cast in the form of Kay Kay Menon, Atul Kulkarni and Satyadev. Kay Kay Menon’s performance is awesome, especially in the scene where a dispute over leadership erupts between him and Rana.  The body languages and natural charm of both the stars Rana and Kay Kay Menon are appreciable. Atul Kulkarni also delivers wonderful performance. Late Om Puri, Nassar and Tapsee are excellent actors and justify with their roles. Tapsee got very limited screen space.

 

Technical:  Ghazi is brilliant  on the technical side. Debutant director Sankalp has done good research and reconstructed this extraordinary story.  The underwater scenes and firing of Torpedoes shot with miniature models looks realistic.  Cinematographer Madhi, editor A Sreekar Prasad, VFX team and music director Krishna Kumar deserve standing ovation for their brilliant work. Dialogues are note worthy. Sankalp Reddy has done superb job as he directed the movie with a unique script and narration. The director has proved that a good movie can be made without the regular dance and action sequences. Production values are top notch.

 

 Analysis:  The movie Ghazi is terrific especially the second half that gives us a fell that we are inside the submarine fighting the enemy. The movie has a powerful message of human spirit. The perfect story, performance of its star cast and gripping narration, thrilling underwater war sequences are the major assets of the movie.  Overall Ghazi is highly patriotic, technically efficient  and brilliantly executed movie. It will be another milestone in Rana’s career.
