Spe­cial screen­ings of The Ghazi At­tack

Hindustan Times (Chandigarh) - City - - Front Page -

The mak­ers of the muchan­tic­i­pated Indo-Pak war film, The Ghazi At­tack, are plan­ning to pay a trib­ute to some of our un­sung he­roes, of­fi­cers of the In­dian Navy. The mak­ers are in talks for spe­cial screen­ings of the film through­out the coun­try for the of­fi­cers, as a salute to their courage and ser­vice to the na­tion. The film is based on true events — the undis­closed un­der­wa­ter war be­tween the two na­tions in the year 1971. The movie high­lights this im­por­tant event by de­pict­ing how PNS Ghazi, a Pak­istani sub­ma­rine, was on a mis­sion to at­tack the air­craft car­rier INS Vikrant by en­ter­ing In­dian wa­ters. The In­dian forces showed ut­most courage, pa­tri­o­tism and in­tel­li­gence, fight­ing back the in­trud­ers and sav­ing their ship.

The film is a trib­ute to the im­mense con­tri­bu­tion of the naval of­fi­cers to na­tional se­cu­rity — the un­der­wa­ter set­ting makes it even more thrilling.

At the screen­ings, the film­mak­ers might be able to in­vite some of the naval of­fi­cers who were ac­tu­ally present at the Ghazi ver­sus Vikrant op­er­a­tion. This will be one of the high points of the screen­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.

Karan Jo­har & AA Films present In­dia’s first war-at-sea film, The Ghazi At­tack, re­leas­ing to­day. The film stars Rana Dag­gu­bati, Kay Kay Menon, Atul Kulka­rni, Taapsee Pannu and the late Om Puri.
