'Rocketry: The Nambi Effect', the biographical drama, was released in theatres on July 1. While the Telugu version didn't do well, the Hindi version is pegged to collect a Nett figure of Rs 40 Cr. The Tamil version has also been critically acclaimed.

What is the film about?
The year is 2018. Former ISRO scientist Nambi Narayanan (played by R Madhavan) is ready to be interviewed by a celebrity (actor Suriya plays himself). As the interview starts, the former scientist narrates his journey from the early days of being a scientist at ISRO.
The segment where Nambi narrates how he and five others were falsely accused of espionage and transferring rocket technology to Pakistan is the core of the film.
The first half is more about Nambi's stellar achievements at ISRO and how he worked hard to pull off ISRO's cryogenic rocket engine project. The second half is about how his and his family members' life turned upside down when he was charged with violating India's official secrets law.
