The teaser of R Madhavan starrer Rocketry – The Nambi Effect starts with Prime Minister Narendra Modi announcing the successful launch of Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM) by Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO). The first few seconds of the over one-minute long video give the figures of how many times Russia and America made failed attempts to reach the Mars orbit but India achieved it in the first attempt only and that too by spending lesser money.
Just when you begin to get the sense of pride in the big achievement of the nation, there comes a voice asking, “What if I say we could have achieved this twenty years ago only?” He continues, “My name is Nambi Narayanan. I spent 35 years in rocketry and 50 days in prison. My nation paid the price of those 50 days and this story is about that. It’s not about me.” The Mars Orbiter Mission, India’s first interplanetary spacecraft, entered the Mars orbit on September 24, 2014.
Watch the teaser of Rocketry – The Nambi Effect:
Nambi Narayanan was a senior official at ISRO and was charged with espionage in 1994. CBI dismissed the charges against him in 1996 and in 1998, Supreme Court declared him not guilty.
The fascinating story of Nambi has been directed by R Madhavan along with Anant Mahadevan. The teaser of the film has left Aamir Khan intrigued too. “Hey guys, check this out. Looks very intriguing to me. Love. a,” Aamir tweeted.
Madhavan had earlier shared a video on Instagram where he said, “There are many personal stories in the world you would have heard about and many many more you have no clue about. But there are a few stories, knowing nothing about which means that you know very little about your own nation. Nambi Narayanan’s story is one such story because when you hear this man’s story and you see his achievements then I promise you, you will never be able to stay silent. Rocketry – The Nambi Effect, for those who don’t know, will definitely become aware and for those who think they know, this will be a revelation. See the teaser on the 31st of October at 11:33 am sharp IST.” Madhavan shared this post in English, Hindi and Tamil.
Rocketry – The Nambi Effect will be released in English, Hindi, Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam.
