The Indian film industry makes a lot of commercial cinemas that are high on entertainment, drama, and other elements. But there is no denying that it has no dearth of stories when it comes to making content-based films. Over the years, more and more content-based films have started to be made, catering to an audience that looks forward to it. And now has come a time when content-based is being more preferred by the audience. One such content-driven film is R Madhavan’s maiden directorial venture ‘Rocketry: The Nambi Effect’.
Since the time of its release last week on July 1, ‘Rocketry: The Nambi Effect’ has been garnering a lot of praise. Based on the life of ISRO’s former scientist Nambi Narayanan, ‘Rocketry’ shows how the patriotic scientist who left an offer at NASA for working in ISRO, was falsely accused of spying.
