India!!! Ahaa!!! is what the director leaves you at the end making you feel a Proud Indian you head out of the movie with your Head up with pride. Abhishek Verma gives us a reason to rejoice the Indianism within us.
The film is inspired by the true events. It carries some historical bytes from the past authenticating the proceedings of the film helping you see the journey of India becoming the proud Nuclear State it is; along with the challenges it faced in becoming one.
The first half is a bit loosened up it is the second half that succeeds to engage you and keeps you hooked with lot of interest and when you near the historical date; the director brings in the wow factor. This is John Abraham’s best performance in the recent times after Madras Café. He delivers and makes Parmanu worth the watch.
His team of Pandavas has a decent ensemble cast where everybody does their part well but it is there teamwork that shines out bright making Parmanu an enriching experience.
Not many of us know India celebrates 11th May as National Technology Day; these are some of the facts the films bring in; making you feel Proud. Indians fooled Americans and achieved the much awaited goal back then and hence the day is celebrated as the National Technology Day. The execution of the film to the Tth day is brilliant. If you are in the right theater the sound will give you the right impact of the Nuclear blast with its shattering sound. This is what makes Parmanu a Big Screen must experience.
The film of course has some loose ends and unnecessary emotional drama outside the patriotic zone on the personal life to buy some screen time which wasn’t required much but everything is overshadowed with the Proud Moment the film gives towards the end making Parmanu a must watch and bringing in a Proud Moment yet again in millions of hearts.
Parmanu – Go live the Proud Moment.
