Ghazi Telugu Movie ReviewFeature Film | U | War
During the Indo-Pakistan War in 1971, Pakistan sends a Submarine, Ghazi to help its soldiers fighting a war with East Pakistan (Bangladesh). While Ghazi tries to reach the coast of Bangladesh, it targets Indian Warship, INS Vikrant which stands in its way near Vishakapatnam Coast. Indian Navy led by Arjun Verma (Rana Daggubati) deploys S-21 submarine to sink Ghazi.
Ghazi is India's First Under Water film and is made based on true incidents. Rana proved his mettle carrying the film on his shoulders. He is ably supported by an efficient supporting cast in the form of K K Menon, Atul Kulkarni, and Satyadev who have performed exceptionally. Tapsee is decent in a limited role.
The first half sets the stage for the war sequences with brilliant confrontational scenes between K K Menon, Atul Kulkarni, and Rana. The Second half of the film is a complete roller coaster ride with a tinge of patriotism and racy narration.
Director Sankalp Reddy made an instant impression with a unique script and spellbinding narration. Even though he missed making it into a commercial drama with due masala elements, he makes a mark and proves a point that Telugu films can also be made without the regular dance and fight routine. Special mention should go to the VFX team who showcase the underwater scenes in a splendid way. Dialogues are very good. Background score is okay at places and camera work is appealing. Production Values are grand.
Ghazi will end up as one of the classics of Indian cinema with the right story, performances, and gripping narration which hold your attention completely, by touching an unknown part of the history. A Must Watch Film!
