ROCKETRY teaser: R. Madhavan creates curiousity to witness Nambi Narayanan's journey

The teaser of R Madhavan starrer ROCKETRY - THE NAMBI EFFECT has been unveiled today. ROCKETRY is based on the life of ISRO scientist Nambi Narayanan.

The teaser starts with Prime Minister Narendra Modi announcing the successful launch of Mars Orbiter Mission and as the camera pans through we see a glimpse of Madhavan inside a jail as he says, “What if I say we could have achieved this twenty years ago only? 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.”

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.

Even Aamir Khan couldn't resist as he's too intrigued as we are, just by the teaser of the film, Aamir tweeted, "Hey guys, check this out. Looks very intriguing to me. Love. a."


ROCKETRY - THE NAMBI EFFECT will be released in English, Hindi, Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam. Madhavan is also co-directing the film with Anant Mahadevan.

Madhavan had earlier shared a video on social media where he announced the teaser release date and a small note about Nambi Effect 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.
