Post the success of its theatrical release, the critically acclaimed directorial debut of R Madhavan, ‘Rocketry: The Nambi Effect’ will now be streaming in Hindi on Voot Select and air on COLORS Cineplex.
The film, jointly produced by Madhavan, Tricolour Films and Varghese Moolan Pictures, has received immense appreciation from the audience and the film fraternity alike for its flawless portrayal of the inspirational real-life story of an unsung hero.
Based on the life of Nambi Narayanan, a former scientist and aerospace engineer of the Indian Space Research Organization, ‘Rocketry: The Nambi Effect’, depicts his momentous journey of becoming a scientist and a popular figure across the globe. As the plot unfolds, the film also showcases the trials and tribulations of the notable scientist who finds himself in a falsely accused espionage case in 1994 and was later exonerated after more than 20 years.
The Hindi version of the film also has a cameo by superstar Shah Rukh Khan, who plays the role of a journalist and is seen interviewing Nambi.
Madhavan said, “Its very rare in life that we come across stories that truly strike a chord and challenge us as artists, and Rocketry has been just that. This is one story I felt the world needed to know. Nambi Sir is an inspiration, and I am grateful to have done justice to his story.”
“The boon of OTT has paved the way for viewers to watch content with ease of convenience and catch films in case they have missed the theatrical release window. Rocketry’s premiere in Hindi on Voot Select will help us connect with audience from all parts of the country and I am looking forward to more love pouring in,” he added.
