Rocketry: The Nambi Effect

R. Madhavan Makes A Good Directorial Debut But With A Half-Baked Movie

Rocketry is a directorial debut of R. Madhavan. Also, Madhavan is the writer and co-producer of the movie. It is a biographical drama based on the life of Nambi Narayana, a former space scientist at the Indian Space Research Organization. He was arrested in the ISRO espionage case and later exonerated.

Story

Nambi Narayanan is an eminent scientist of ISRO but was arrested on false charges of espionage. Later he was exonerated of all the charges but only after a long battle with the system and society. Nambi walks through his life and narrates everything the good and poor side of his life – his scholarship from Princeton University, declining a lucrative job offer from NASA, and sealing an unbelievable deal with the CEO of Rolls Royce. He even runs like James Bond on snow to escape from the clutches of foreign agents chasing him to get crucial parts of a rocket. He is arrested for espionage and his family suffers mental and social trauma. But he comes clean from the charges. The movie is made in Hindi, Tamil, and English

Rocketry

HIGHLIGHTS

• Madhavan honestly covers every aspect of Namib’s life, especially his feats and challenges
• Madhavan’s makeup to dialogue delivery and expression makes him the real Nambi
• Simran portrays Meena Nambi with grace and absolute conviction
• Sam Mohan as Unni stands out among the supporting actors
• In the Hindi version, Shah Rukh Khan looks impressive as a news anchor

DOWNSIDE

• The movie feels like an extended science class with difficult science words included in the script
• Repetitive words like ‘Nambi is a genius’ make it a propaganda movie
• It requires a sharper edit and a more sophisticated screenplay

Laal Singh Chaddha Movie Review

Laal Singh Chaddha (Aamir Khan) lives on a farm with his doting mother (Mona Singh) who is everything to him. He has a physical disability that requires him to have leg braces. While society considers Laal a disabled person, his mother gives him the strength to do well in life. One day Laal removes his leg braces and starts running. Soon he joins the Indian army, makes friends in the army, and goes to war. Also, he falls in love, and his heart breaks. But Laal Singh Chaddha leads a happy life despite facing physical, mental, and emotional challenges.

Trailer

The three-minute trailer gives a glimpse of the life of Laal Singh Chaddha from a physically-challenged child to becoming a soldier. Mona Singh looks impressive as the mother of young Laal Singh. Naga Chaitanya has a limited role as a close friend and co-soldier with Aamir Khan. But Kareena Kapoor remains the most elusive character in the trailer. She is the love interest of Aamir Khan but their chemistry is missing in the trailer.

Early Response For Laal Singh Chaddha

Viewers aren’t impressed with the things Aamir Khan is doing in Laal Singh Chaddha. First of all, they find Aamir Khan giving the same popped-eyed expressions he gave in a bunch of his recent films. And they said … Read more
