State Of Siege-Temple Attack review


“Akshay Khanna is the only worthy element in this patriotic action movie,” says Pratik Sur.

Movies inspired by real life events often overdo it with emotional and preachy scenes to raise the necessary level of spectacle in the name of cinematic freedom. AT State Of Siege-Temple Attackthis factor is the film’s biggest flaw and pretty much kills the storytelling.

The letter from William Borthwick and Simon Fantauzzo is excellent. The events of the attack on Akshardham have been shortened and presented under a new title. However, this event was so well known when it happened that almost everyone knew what would happen at the end of the movie.

Directing by Ken Ghosh has always kept the audience on their toes. State Of Siege-Temple Attack will get you too hooked. However, there are scenes that seem to have been forcibly added just to keep the movie going.

For example, there is a scene where a Muslim hostage is rescued, but he chooses not to leave the temple, but instead approaches the terrorists and teaches them a lesson that the Quran does not preach violence.

The whole scene looked forced, just to let the audience know that all Muslims are not bad. There are a lot of scenes in the movie that look a little pushy. If they were replaced with scenes of the NSG fighting terrorists, it would make more sense.

Akshay Khanna is the only worthy element in this patriotic action movie. The charm it exudes makes you stay glued to the screen. Akshay brings subtle nuances to his character that make him memorable.

Unfortunately, the other actors have almost nothing to do. Gautam Rode, Vivek Dahiya, Abhimanyu Singh, Akshay Oberoi, Parveen Dabbas, Sameer Soni, Manjari Fadnis all seem to have fleeting roles. None of them have any impact on the storyline, and it seems that all of these roles could have been played by younger artists.

If Ken Ghosh’s direction had been filled with action scenes instead of sleazy preaching scenes, the film would have turned out much better.

State Of Siege-Temple Attack could have been a decent thriller if the direction had been better. Even with Akshay Khanna’s skill at his craft, there’s not much he can do to save this predictable film. ONE-TIME WATCH, that’s all.

State Of Siege-Temple Attack airs on ZEE5.
