State of Siege: Temple Attack Movie Review

Release Date : July 09, 2021 Rating : 2.75/5

Starring: Akshaye Khanna, Vivek Dahiya, Gautam Rode

Director : Ken Ghosh

Produced by : Abhimanyu Singh

Continuing the trend of reviewing shows and movies on OTT, our today’s pick is Zee 5 Hindi movie State of Siege – Temple Attack. Now let’s see how the film is starring Akshaye Khanna.


The film is based on the 2002 terrorist attack on the Akshar Dham temple in Gujarat. Some terrorists attack the temple and take many hostage. NSG commandos are brought in immediately. The team is led by Major (Hanut Singh) and the rest of the story is about how Hanut and his men risk their lives to kill terrorists.

more points

The locations chosen for the performance of Akshar Dham Temple are quite good and create a tense atmosphere for the visitors. The way the film has been started and the entire terrorist attack is executed, it has been shown in an excellent manner. The first half of the film is very strong and its effect is good.

All the actors who play the role of terrorists are strong in their roles. Akshaye Khanna is back in the game with an action avatar and has done well as an NSG commando. He is the mainstay of the film and does well in action sequences. The battle of NSG and the way NSG deals with terrorists has been well portrayed.

Minus points

One of the biggest drawbacks of the film is its predictability. You know exactly what is going to happen next as all the scenes are quite predictable and regular. The canvas is big but the narration doesn’t grip you that much.

After the first half, the makers run out of ideas and the plot doesn’t budge much and there’s no twist. The ending is also quite regular and the other supporting cast look dull. Some well-known actors must have made things even better.

The emotional content of the film is missing in the second half. There are some logical errors as the makers have taken things lightly the way a big terrorist is left alone to save the people of the country.

technical aspects

The camerawork is good as the visuals are clean. The action part is also good and the dialogues too. The production design is top-notch and so was the BGM of the film. Speaking of director Ken Ghosh, he has picked up a popular phenomenon and tried to weave a story around it. He has managed to show some good thrills in the beginning, but in all this, emotions and endings are tossed around, leaving a mixed feeling for the audience.


Overall, State of Siege-Temple Attack is a film that has a familiar premise and regular action. The first half is full of good excitement but the second half goes for a toss and the end is quick and predictable. All those who love hostage drama can give this movie a shot but the rest can take it easy and look for something else this weekend. Rating : 2.75/5
