Real life story of renowned ISRO scientist Nambi Narayanan and how he was arrested and shamed in media for being a traitor to our nation. But was he even guilty of those charges?

The first half is only Rocketry and I swear to god I felt like I was sitting in a science class and like all of them which I have attended in my life I couldn’t understand a word of what they were talking about.

The second half is where the film actually gets crispier and on point. But unlike the plethora of rags to riches biopics we currently have this one actually starts off where others finish. The film completely sticks to Rocketry and Nambi and doesn’t meander off into unwanted directions like others.

R Madhavan may have been pretty average as a director but as an actor he has outperformed himself. Maddy has eyes of a God. Emotions travel from them as beautifully as a stream from heaven.

SRK’s cameo is a perfect use of his stardom to jumpstart the film. The cinematography and the VFX are astonishing but the editing feels like a roughly edited trailer by an intern. The research and thought put by Maddy in the heart and soul of the film is commendable.

With an astounding and gutting story of Shri Nambi Narayanan’s life the film could have achieved a lot more than it does. Rocketry aims of Mangal but loses its track in the Thermosphere. (Yes I googled that)!!
