Attack A science fiction narrative about a super soldier tasked with saving the country in its darkest hour. A SLICK SUPER SOLDIER’S STEADY STORY.
Critic’s Rating: 3.5/5
With the Parliament under siege, Arjun Shergill, India’s first super soldier, is entrusted with apprehending the terrorists in time, rescuing the Prime Minister, and preventing a dirty bomb from exploding and destroying Delhi. Will Arjun be able to complete his mission?
An officer with incurable paralysis from the neck down, as well as a love life that ended as abruptly as it began. An bureaucrat (I have no idea what position or office he has) is pressuring the president to test a new scientific programme that uses artificial intelligence to create super-special commandos. A terrorist group operating out of what seems to be PoK is targeting Indian citizens like a loose cannon… Attack, directed by newcomer Lakshya Raj Anand and produced by John Abraham, is the result of these odds coming together.
When Arjun Shergill’s (John Abraham) lover Aisha (Jacqueline Fernandez in an extended appearance) is killed in a terrorist strike at an airport, his world is turned upside down. Arjun is also hurt while battling them, and as a result, he is paralysed from the neck down. He vegetates in his wheelchair until one day, when Subramaniam (Prakash Raj), a high-ranking Indian government figure, suggests that his name be used as a test case for a new artificial-intelligence-driven technology that may help him get back on his feet and make him into a super soldier. A terrorist crisis occurs in the Parliament just as he becomes the functional testee for Dr. Saba’s (Rakul Preet Singh) experiment.
Arjun rises to the challenge, but will he be able to save the world before it’s too late?
Attack: Part One, by newcomer Lakshya Raj Anand, establishes a universe in which India is on the verge of a paradigm shift in terms of mindset and approach. But, more crucially, he uses artificial intelligence as a character in the plot in a unique and elegant way. He deserves a standing ovation just for that.
There are, of course, a number of other advantages. The film has been meticulously edited. The film’s two-hour length flies by. The plot revolves around John’s character, and that thread has not been abandoned at any time.
His current situation, its disruption, and his suffering, which serves as his momentum when he returns to the fray, have all been well-written. Every single character on Arjun’s perimeter, though, might have been explored more fully, particularly Ratna Pathak Shah and Rajit Kapur, the latter of whom is comparably more well-thought-out. For that matter, Rakul and Elham Ehsas.
Thankfully, the picture avoids the heaviness of conventional nationalistic cliches and feelings. If you’re seeking for some familiar lines, you’ve come to the wrong place. The story does not devolve into a song-and-dance routine, either.
However, there is a sprinkling of inadvertent humour, which is a welcome break and an indication of strong writing that isn’t forced. Thanks to top-of-the-line action choreography that is in tune with the rest of the proceedings, the film, which is based on a few true events, features a good amount of edge-of-your-seat moments. The majority of the film has the sense of a fight game because to the usage of visual effects.
After such a long time, it’s refreshing to watch John Abraham play to his strengths. He isn’t lifting automobiles, crushing bikes, squeezing people like lemons, or yelling “strong” phrases. He appears to be in command of the situation, and he appears to be in excellent mental and physical condition, as if he were a soldier.
On the other hand, the conclusion seemed hurried. In addition, there have been countless films and even OTT series in which a terrorist group confronts the Indian government and a hero rises to the situation. While we have no objections to the latter, we need to discover a more compelling threat for our heroes to shine even brighter.
Also, John’s character does not appear to have spent much time in a wheelchair before getting back on his feet. For someone who has been paralysed for some time, his physique appears to be in good form. The songs in the film are merely adequate.
To summarise, Attack: Part One is a compelling watch from beginning to end.
It would have been even better if some of the characters that surround John’s Arjun Shergill had been given more time and attention.
