The terrorist attack on the Akshardham temple in Gandhinagar, Gujarat on 24 September 2002 shook the country and politics. About 32 people lost their lives in this attack. On this traumatic incident, director Ken Ghosh has brought a new film titled ‘State of Siege: Temple Attack’. Akshaye Khanna made his digital debut with this film.
State of Siege: Temple Attack Movie Story:
The story of the film begins with the beautiful valleys of Kashmir. But the real story was not these beautiful valleys but the army’s operation against the terrorists. Where India’s minister’s daughter is taken prisoner by terrorists and Major Hanot Singh (Akshay Khanna) arrives with his team to rescue the minister’s daughter. But in this mission, Major Hanot Singh seems to have failed. He loses his fellow jawan in this mission and the terrorist also escapes but manages to save the minister’s daughter. This type of failure of Major Hanot Singh has been given a lot of focus in the film.
While serving in the NSG, Hanot Singh is given the next mission of protecting the Gujarat CM. On the other hand, in the name of avenging the Gujarat riots, terrorists attack the Krishnadham temple in Gujarat.
It will take 4 hours for the entire NSG team to reach Gujarat, due to which the film’s hero Major Hanot Singh (Akshay Khanna) arrives to handle the temple attack situation with a team of only 6-8 people. Here too, Major Hanot fails in the beginning and then Major Samar (Gautam Rode) is given the responsibility of this mission. The story is woven around how Major Hanot returns to this mission and how this mission is made a success.

State of Siege: Temple Attack Movie Review:
The film ‘State of Siege: Temple Attack’ will not disappoint the audience. The plot of the film is interesting. All the characters and the story proved to be perfect to narrate the terrorist incident. But the character of Akshaye Khanna brings ups and downs in the film. This is why the film was focused more on the failure of a Major than the Temple Attack. But Akshaye Khanna played his role with utmost sincerity, which handles this film.
The film was mainly related to the terrorist attack. In this film, Abhilash Chaudhary, Dhanvir Singh, Mridul Das, and Mihir Ahuja were seen in the role of terrorists. All four did strong acting. At the same time, the character of Gautam Rode and Vivek Dahiya in the film also manages to handle the film. When it comes to the performance of Akshaye Khanna, the audience has seen him in uniform after years. Akshay Khanna of ‘Border’ remembers watching this film again and again. The age marks may have increased but Akshaye Khanna did not let it affect the character. Excellent efforts by Akshaye Khanna.
What’s good, What’s bad:
To a large extent, this film is good and it is also entertaining. Also, Akshaye Khanna, Vivek Dahiya, Gautam Rode, and Abhilash Chaudhary have done justice to their characters. The focus of the entire film is on Major Hanot Singh i.e. Akshaye Khanna. The weak side is the writing of the film. The film could have been made stronger. The fight scenes of the film are also very weak.
See or not See:
If you are a fan of Akshaye Khanna then definitely watch this movie. At the same time, if you like to watch movies inspired by true events, then you can watch this movie. But it will disappoint you in terms of action.
