After teasing us with a poster, the makers of ‘The Ghazi Attack’ have unveiled the first trailer of the film and it is sure to give you goosebumps. Starring Rana Duggubati, Taapsee Pannu, Kay Kay Menon, Atul Kulkarni and Late Om Puri, The Ghazi Attack is India’s first war-at-sea film.
The trailer starts off with a voice-over by Amitabh Bachchan giving us a history of India-Pakistan wars. Later the film delves deep into the history and takes us through the first underwater war, where men abroad Indian Submarine S-21 destroy the Pakistani submarine, PNS Ghazi when it ventured into Indian waters with an ambition to destroy INS Vikrant in 1971.
Rana is playing Lt. Commander Arjun Varma, and looks handsome and fierce in the navy uniform. On the other hand, Taapsee is playing a character named Ananya, and her look is very intriguing. She also seems to be wearing a sort of uniform, but there are no tags to reveal her affiliation. I am really curious about what character Ananya is all about.
During the Bangladesh war, INS Vikrant was deployed and its Hawker Sea Hawk attack aircraft contributed immensely in air operations. The Pakistan Navy responded with its long-range submarine, PNS Ghazi. Its job was to locate INS Vikrant. When it failed to do so, it decided to mine the port of Visakhapatnam, which was the headquarters of Eastern Naval Command. As PNS Ghazi began its operation of laying mines, the Indian Navy dispatched INS Rajput to counter the threat. Ghazi sank mysteriously while laying a mine with all 92 hands on board.
Directed by Sankalp Reddy,The Ghazi Attack releases on February 17,2017. Watch the trailer and tell us what do you think of it!
