The film ‘The Ghazi Attack’, which is said to be India’s first war-at-sea, narrates a true tale of the courage and patriotism of the Indian Navy.
Inspired by a classified mission conducted against the Pakistani navy in 1971. The film, directed by Sankalp Reddy, reveals the mystery of what happened on the night of December 3 that year and what caused the sinking of the PNS Ghazi, a Pak submarine.
However, India credits the sinking of PNS Ghazi to its own naval destroyer INS Rajput.
The movie ‘The Ghazi Attack’, starring Rana Daggubati, Atul Kulkarni, Kay Kay Menon and Taapsee Pannu in pivotal roles, also features late actor Om Puri.
The story revolves around an Indian submarine S-21 which locates and torpedoes PNS Ghazi before the latter can attack INS Vikrant which was, at the time, India’s only Magestic-class aircraft carrier.
