There is no build up,intrigue or element of surprise in the film.Even the star power of a stellar ensemble can’t save the sinking ship that is Project Ghazi. Having a big star cast often pulls in a huge opening for the film however this hasn’t been the case for Project Ghazi.
Adnan Jaffer is an excellent choice to play the antagonist, however he has not been given any substantial dialogues. There are no layers to his character either,and all we see is a psychopath who can control minds. He is not shown planning anything to build up the hype of what is about to go down.
Both Humayun Saeed and Sheharyar Munawar are the knights in shinning armor. But again they aren’t given much to work with. They all look the part but aren’t sure what to do with it. We cannot determine which one of them is the protagonist, neither do we get to see the full extent of their supposed superpowers. There are no particular details as to how they got these powers.
Syra’s presence in the film is extremely pleasant and probably the best character that one enjoys watching.
There are obvious issues of sound and dubbing even now. There is no music in the movie which makes sense keeping the genre of the film in mind. However an impactful background score could have been nice.
The direction is done by Nadir Shah and is not impressive either. Some of the scene are incoherent just like the film’s plot and one fails to enjoy the movie at all. The action sequences are not power packed and the director has failed to give us well executed action sequences.
The end of the film is also disappointing as the antagonist is killed off by a container and not by either of the heroes. This makes their existence in the film pointless.The makers have missed the point of a super hero film completely.
The film had all the elements that are required to make a decent film but no solid plot. Even if some work had gone into the current screenplay the outcome could have been better. Right now it is nothing but a terrible waste of talent of some of our industry’s finest.
