Parmanu: The story of Pokhran is finally released. May 1998, India had given a message of being powerful in the world by conducting nuclear tests in Pokhran, Rajasthan and by this the cess of every Indian was widened. The US was given the overturning of the satellite whose satellite was unable to capture this incident in its camera and the Indians dashed the CIA’s eyes.
This test was necessary at that time because India was considered weak because of the dissolution of Russia. This historic event was carried out by engineers, army officers and scientists in a secret way. This incident has been shown in the film ‘Parmanu: The Story of Pokhran’, how these Indians were successful in their mission while fighting all kinds of calamities.
‘PARMANU’ is based on a true phenomenon in which some fictional characters have been shown and put in it. Ashait Raina (John Abraham), an IAS officer from IIT, works in the PMO and in 1995 he is talking about the Nuclear Test, he is laughed. After preparing for the test after considering his case, US satellites catch this thing. She is removed from the job.
In 1998, a large PMO officer Himanshu Shukla (Boman Irani) prepares him for this mission again. A team of scientists, army officers and experts prepare the Ashvard and successfully completes this mission. Twice in 24 hours the eye of the American satellite was removed from Pokhran, which is called Blanc Spot. They used to do all their work within a few hours of blank spots, so these satellites did not catch them. In order to woo the Americans, India also raised the military stir in Kashmir so that the focus could shift and this policy worked.
The film was directed by Abhishek Sharma, Sanyukta Chawla Sheikh and S. Quadrass has written together. The challenge before the authors was to save the film from becoming a documentary. That’s why they added fictional characters. Ashwat added to the turmoil in family life. Sadly, all these things seem like a patch on the original historical phenomenon. Most of these sequences do not make any sense. Creating a team and then completing the mission has appeared in many recent films, and here the author has not been able to think anything new and when this kind of incident is shown in the film then the film starts getting routine.
One thing is shaky in the film when a member of the team complains about the heat or work of Pokhran. Such scenes spoil the taste of the face while watching the film because such things are not good with the people working for the country. Such scenes should have been avoided.
After the interval, the film grows rapidly when Pakistani and American detectives keep in touch with Pokhran and hold that India is going to perform nuclear tests. Thrill is born here. Climax has been written well and the audience goes out with good filling while leaving the cinema and the authors have managed here.
Director Abhishek Sharma has chosen a great theme for film making, which includes a true event and patriotism. More than half of people will prefer the film only because it is based on Pokharan nuclear tests. Abhishek did not go too far into this incident. His main aim was to explain how all this was done, although there is not much detailing here, despite the shortcomings, he succeeded in presenting Pokharan nuclear test in such a way that it was the heart of the audience Touch it
John Abraham now chooses the same kind of movie in which he is comforthable. There are not many expressions on their face and there was no need for too much expressions to play Ashwat Raina, so they played this role. Diana Panti was taken just because the director felt that the heroine should be for the film. They have become part of John’s team. Boman Irani’s performance is excellent. Acting as John’s wife, Anuja Sathe’s emotional scenes is worth watching. Aditya Hitakari, Yogendra Tikku, Vikas Kumar and Ajay Shankar have acted as a supporting cast.
In my suggestion go and watch the film once because it’s really very interesting.
Star Rating- 3.5/5
