A story of courage and patriotism on the high seas
Dharma Productions, helmed by filmmaker Karan Johar, is focussing on curating films with strong content in 2017.
The current audiences are more receptive to newer content. They have lent their support to content-driven films such as The Lunchbox (2013), Dear Zindagi (2016), Kapoor & Sons (2016) and the magnum opus, Baahubali: The Beginning (2015).
Dharma Production’s next venture, The Ghazi Attack, is based on an underwater war which took place between India and Pakistan. In 1971, PNS Ghazi, a Pakistani submarine, was on a mission to attack and destroy the aircraft carrier INS Vikrant by entering Indian waters. The movie portrays a heroic tale of courage and patriotism shown by the Indian Navy. The film stars Rana Daggubati, Kay Kay Menon, Atul Kulkarni, Taapsee Pannu and the late Om Puri.
A source says, “Dharma Productions was known for its romantic family dramas. But now, they’re adding yet another feather to their cap, by entertaining a wider range of cinemagoers. When relatable content is expressed in a simplified manner, people are receptive to it. The trailer of The Ghazi Attack is thrilling and the audience expects powerpacked performances from the stellar cast.”
Karan Johar & AA Films present India’s first war-atsea film, The Ghazi Attack, to release on February 17.
