Rocketry Movie Review

Rocketry is a biographical drama-based movie, which received a 9.2/10 IMDb rating to date. The critics praised the extraordinary performance and screenplay by R.Madhavan. However, the direction can have better although it can be managed as the intention of the movie is too good.

There are many more things to witness in the movie such as the struggles of Nambi Narayanan to build the rocket engine and the struggles of his life after he falsely alleged espionage, and quisling. The movie was released in three different languages Hindi, Tamil, and English. Overall this is a must-watch movie for every Indian.
