An insult to the INS

As a veteran of the U.S Navy and the son-in-law of a retired LCDR in the Indian Navy, I was appalled by this movie. The technical aspects of submarine life as portrayed in this move are simply ludicrous. The list is endless, but here are four examples. 1) When a submarine employs active sonar (pinging), it immediately broadcasts its position to any and all who are listening. The proposition that an alert enemy would be unaware of the location of an active sonar source is absurd. 2) Torpedoes, even of that era, were not thunderous beasts, crashing through the water. They are streamlined, high-speed, killing machines that are as stealthy as the manufacturers can make them. 3) Seawater reaching the batteries, as shown in the move, would have released large amounts of poisonous chlorine gas and/or created an explosion sufficient to breech the hull and sink the boat. 4) During an active combat drill, members of the crew are shown at ease in the crew quarters. In a combat drill, every sailor has a combat station, and nobody would be idling about in their quarters. Even worse, is the unprofessional and incompetent behavior imputed to members of the INS. The assignment of a psychologically unstable officer to command a submarine is unthinkable. Verbally bullying his subordinates, brandishing a pistol, drinking alcohol with his subordinates while on duty (and he was a Sikh!) - these are not qualities associated with anyone who would even be considered for submarine command. To state otherwise maligns the integrity of the admirals who commanded the INS in general and the submarine forces in particular. Undoubtedly, there is a very interesting story to be told about the sinking of the Pakistani submarine, quite possibly involving bravery and heroism on the part of INS forces, but this movie is not that story. The lengthy disclaimer displayed on the screen and read aloud, in full, prior to the start of the movie, does not justify or excuse this collection of junk technology and transparent appeals to blind, unthinking patriotism.

Crap movie

Seriously starting to doubt the credibility of IMDb these days. More often than not these days one sees awful movies with very high ratings making one wonder if film makers are trying to boost the sales of their movie by employing fake ratings. Having waited for release of this movie for months was greatly disappointed by the trash that was dished out. I even wonder if there was any original screenplay in the movie because as few others pointed out Ghazi Attack has shamelessly lifted scenes from Hollywood movies like Crimson Tide, U-571, Down Periscope to name a few. Coming from a defense family cant even start with the list of errors and omissions in portraying submarine operations. Not worth the money you spend in theater these days to go watch this movie. You would be better off to watch some of the Hollywood movies listed above and in that process you would have seen major part of Ghazi Attack. This movie like Mohenjodaro is a classic examples of how great ideas can be ruined by poor movie making.

Pathetic turkey. Avoid this trash n watch Crimson Tide, U-571, Das Boot, Mare Nostrum.

The acting is horrible. The direction is pathetic. The screenplay is one of the worst. The editing is horrendous. The cinematography is nada. The movie is a pathetic turkey. Go watch Crimson Tide, a much better film for fans of such genre. The Ghazi Attack is inspired by true events from the Indo-Pakistani war of 1971. The story is about an executive naval officer of the Indian Submarine INS Karanj and his team, who remain underwater for 18 days. The film explores the mysterious circumstances under which PNS Ghazi sank off the coast of Visakhapatnam in 1971. It is an underwater tale of the courage and patriotism of the men aboard the Indian Submarine S-21 who destroyed the Pakistani submarine PNS Ghazi when it ventured into Indian waters to destroy INS Vikrant. According to the Pakistani 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 sinking PNS Ghazi. As of today, it is a mystery and was thus, a ripe subject for a filmmaker to base a war film on.
