According to a press release, Attack is a race against time story of rescue by an attack team led by Abraham’s character. The film is a fictional story inspired by true events, set against a hostage crisis.
Talking about the film Abraham said in the press release, “Attack is a taut, action entertainer with a strong storyline…a genre I love! At JA Entertainment, it is our endeavour to push the envelope and produce films that entertain and have something significantly different to show to our increasingly discerning audience.”
The film was originally announced as an August 2020 release but got delayed due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
Jayantilal Gada of Pen Studios, who is co-producing the film along with Abraham, said in the press release that the team’s decision to release the film in theatres was an extension of their support to film exhibitors and cinema hall owners who suffered losses due to the pandemic.
“John and his production house have conceived a phenomenal film and people will flock to watch it on the big screen,” he said.
Another co-producer, Ajay Kapoor, said in the press release, “Collaborating with John and Jayanti Bhai on Attack is special. It brings an engaging and important story to audiences and will interest the younger generation.”
Attack will see Abraham and Fernandez come together on-screen once again after their 2016 action-comedy Dishoom.
