Attack, directed by Lakshya Raj Anand, is a recommended picture for everyone who loves filmmakers who explore experimental genres, particularly ones that looked out of place in contemporary cinema a few years ago. It is, in my opinion, the first move in the proper way in the’sci-fi’ realm, in which the creators have attempted to logically and scientifically reason the actions of a Super Soldier, played by John Abraham.
The plot of Attack primarily centres around John’s Arjun, who is given a second shot at life when he becomes the first prototype of an experiment designed to tackle terrorism and other serious threats to the country. This transition has been demonstrated with extensive explanations, which makes it easier to understand. Of course, the notion has been used before, particularly in a number of big and minor Hollywood films, but the way it was introduced in this John, Dr. Jayantilal Gada, and Ajay Kapoor production is significant.
Some of the action moments in Attack, which are superbly choreographed by action directors Franz Spilhaus, Amritpal Singh, and Amin Khatib, stand out as well. A couple of them were one-of-a-kind. The stunt choreographers did, however, become predictable in the climax sequence involving a plane. That one appeared like a frantic attempt to make it larger than life, and it took away the realism component, which had remained fairly constant in the film up until that point.
In terms of acting, John’s portrayal of Arjun is credible. Furthermore, it seems that he was having a lot of fun portraying the part, which is evident on screen. Jacqueline made an impression in her limited screen time, despite the fact that her character graph resembled that of another of her recent films, Bachchhan Paandey. Rakul Preet Singh was excellent in her role, and the rest of the actors, including Prakash Raj, Kiran Kumar, and Ratna Pathak Shah, supported the story well. Rajit Kapur’s performance was outstanding, while Elham Ehsas’ portrayal as the adversary was simply outstanding. As a director, Lakshya Raj Anand has a lot of potential and might be one of the most sought-after filmmakers in the future.
So, keep an open mind, don’t make any comparisons, and give the movie a chance. It is possible that you will enjoy it.
