The film directed by Sankalp Reddy faces challenge from Running Shaadi and Irada, and even Subhash Kapoor’s Jolly LLB 2, which is making a run towards 100 crores. The only person who might gain the most out of the competition might be Taapsee Pannu who is a part of both The Ghazi Attack and Running Shaadi.
There are various factors which have already managed to make Indian audience keep this film in their must watch list. To begin with, it has a fresh story to tell.
The Ghazi Attack is the first of its kind war film in the history of Indian cinema which is based on a Pakistani submarine called the PNS Ghazi which ventured into Indian waters with the ambition of destroying the INS Vikrant. What came in their way? The heroes aboard the Indian submarine S-21. It is the war you did not know about. The second factor that might attract the audience is the will to watch late actor Om Puri one last time.
