A story of courage and pa­tri­o­tism on the high seas

Hindustan Times (Chandigarh) - City - - City -

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.
