An Indian war film always tries to offers its struggle to stand on pars with Hollywood or any International films, for most of the times; we are constrained to compromise on the technical factors due to financial issues. Ghazi has indeed managed to throw up its best when it comes to the production values. First and foremost, we have to extend appreciations for the best shot of debut filmmaker Sankalp Reddy in attempting a different genre for his first movie.
The film traverses through the unforgettable moment of 1971 Indo-Pak war that had the unwritten heroes involved in a stark conflict over handling a speculative situation underwater. Comprising of power-packed performances by Kay Kay Menon, Om Puri, Nasser, Rana Daggubati, Taapsee and few more prominent actors, the film has some brilliant moments laced with nuance performances.
The first among the star-cast who instantly gets grasped into your mind is Kay Kay Menon, who keeps stealing the show throughout his episodes. In fact, he stands out to be a major attraction and of course, we do have iconic spells from late actor Om Puri too. Although Nasser has a miniscule appearance, he does it perfectly with proficiency. Rana Daggubati as Lieutenant-Commander Arjun Varma is a decent surprise as we do see him not completely indulged in brawny stuffs on more, but with best mannerisms and body language. Every character in this film embodies a synonymous adjective of fast, rigid, brainy and peacemakers. When it comes to the characterization of Devaraj played by Atul Kulkarni, we do find that his role is satisfactorily penned out. There are times, when the situations get tougher and he has to handle it up in refraining from the war-provoke tendencies. Sankalp can ardently thank Sreekar Prasad for his sleek and neat cuts, where you don’t find the transition between the scenes.
On the technical front, it’s the art department that instantaneously brings a realistic pictorial view of a submarine. The sound department too is proficient in its style and cinematography by Mathie is excellent. After Kammatipaadam, K has been taking new routes towards the musical panoramas. Well, this is one good work from the young musician and this is sure to escalate his musical graph.
Overall, Ghazi offers a colossal impression for the audiences and it is presented well. Kudoses to the producers including PVP Cinemas for funding up this experimental project, which would definitely stand out to be a prestigious emblem in their production venture.
