The trailer of actor Madhavan’s first directorial was launched by some of the biggest actors around the country. Starring the actor himself, we get a great looking period film that includes extensive CG shots of rocket launches and grand sets. The film appears to be a flashback with the Nambi Narayanan character going back in time to explain the incidents that happened in his life just so, “it doesn’t happen to anyone else.”
Although a story about a scientist, we get glimpses of the many adventures in his life including how he brought a Russian engine back into India, his plan on making India a part of a “trillion dollar market” and the many offers he got from other countries to leave this one behind. Even action scenes are aplenty in the big budget film “based on real incidents”.
