Ghazi has many interesting elements to watch. It is a first Telugu film to do underwater by taking the intriguing concept to enthrall film buffs. Rana, KK Menon and Atul Kulkarni played lead roles and Sankalp Reddy directed this film.
During the 70s, Pakistan army sends a special submarine called Ghazi to help soldiers who are fighting against Bangladesh. The interesting aspect is that Ghazi can reach Bangladesh through Indian waters by annihilating Indian warship INS Vikranth.
Indian intelligence reported this news immediately. In order to handle Ghazi, Indian navy deploys the S-21 submarine, managed by dedicated and diligent officer Arjun Varma(Rana Daggubbatti). How the team of Arjun Varma handles Ghazi is rest of the story.
Rana has done a great job. His emotional performance in Ghazi can grab the attention of audiences and win the laurels for sure. He carries entire film on his shoulders. K K Menon, Atul Kulkarni, and Satyadev did their best in their respected roles. Without their superlative performance, it would not have reached the great heights.
Apart from the cast, PVP Cinema and Matinee entertainments should be appreciated as they believe in the script and bankrolled it. In fact, Indian filmmakers will not do such experiments as it is filmed under waters completely. The young director has proved his directorial skills and narrated the film in an interesting manner to amuse film buffs. Director has taken utmost care for submarine, uniforms, and then environment exactly to have a wonderful feel on big screen.
Taapsee’s character is not up to the mark and some scenes in the film could not elevate the film like blasting of the Pakistani submarine and some confrontational scenes. Since it is made under waters, war sequences also did not reach the expectations of audiences. However, it is a good attempt by the director.
On the technical front, Ghazi is the best in VFX and showcased international standards. Dialogues are good enough and cinematography is appreciable. Editing sharp and director has presented the film in a right way to strike a chord with audiences. Production values are adequate.
Ghazi is not routine fights and dances flick rather, audiences enjoy novelty
