The plot of this movie is highly inspired by the real underwater war  which happened during Indo-Pak war, in the year 1971 when PNS Ghazi was destroyed by India’s INS Rajput which has been changed as Submarine S-21 in the movie, at the coast of Visakhapatnam. PNS Ghazi infiltrated into Indian Waters for destroying INS Vikrant, the aircraft career. It can be said that the story is a fictional work. Different parts of this underwater war have been shown in the movie.

The operation of Ghazi Attack in the movie was conducted under the leadership of Capt. Ranvijay Singh played by Kay Kay Menon followed by his second-in-command Devaraj, played by Atul Kulkarni along with Arjun, his righteous office, played by Rana Daggubati. With limited resource, the director has done a brilliant work out which calls for a great round of applause. The director Sankalp Reddy surely deserves appreciation for his brave attempt and we are sure that this movie is going to be a landmark movie for this entire career in the film industry.

The casting has been done flawlessly for this movie. Kay Kay Menon is the main actor in this movie and his acting really deserve lots of appreciation. On the other hand, Rana Daggubati played his portrayal quite well in a mature way. Atul Kulkarni is good as Naval Officer but actually he does not have so much to do in the movie.

In comparison to the first part, the second part of the movie is quite interesting. In the second half, audience will be able to get the thrill of underwater war. The firing of torpedoes and moving of submarines head to head have been presented in the movie excellently. Still the movie could have been better with more improved special effects and visuals. Overall, this movie is worth watching due to exceptional presentation of Indo-Pak underwater war.
