PLOT : A Pakistani submarine vanishes under mysterious circumstances.
MOVIE REVIEW : India’s first underwater war film based on the mysterious sinking of PNS Ghazi in 1971, directed by Sankalp Reddy, deserves appreciation for its impressive filmmaking as a debutant.
According to the Pak army, PNS Ghazi sank due to explosions caused by itself or the landmines it laid in the Bay of Bengal. However, the Indian Navy credits the destroyer INS Rajput for its sinking.
This movie is not a typical Bollywood film which has loves stories, comic scenes & songs which can restrict its audience. First half totally belongs to Kay Kay Menon role as Capt Ranvijay Singh, he was good in his part and second half to Atul Kulkarni as second-in-command Devaraj but here Rana Daggubati delivers a average performance although he looks good in the Navy uniform.
Taapsee Pannu role is not needed in the movie actually she has nothing do in the film hardly have 10 mins screen presence. Here the supporting cast doesn’t look like a like Navy men and the characters in the Pakistani submarine are not well portrait.
Only the second half keeps you on the edge of your seat when the submarines go head-to-head, firing torpedoes and defending themselves. But You hardly have any room for memorable dialogues and scenes like other war films. The underwater sequences were not looking realistic, it could have been better for good visual experience to viewers, also the scene where the torpedo hits the submarine is not well shown due to its average VFX.
Movie also have late Om Puri as a navy officer, one of his last films.
Overall Hit ya Flop Rating : 2.5 out of 5
