ROCKETRY – NAMBI EFFECT is a biographical drama film based on the life of Nambi Narayanan, a former scientist and aerospace engineer of the Indian Space Research Organisation, who was falsely accused of espionage The film is written, produced and directed by R. Madhavan, who also plays the lead role.
It’s a story some know and most don’t and ROCKETRY has an inquisitive beginning. The narration is fluid and a lot of space science thrown in as well that some could find intimidating. Though the pace of the movie is steady the docu drama effect is obvious, more so because of the period that it is set in. The movie is not all about science and technology there is a lot of simple humour and family values that are endearing. On the down side the most important portion of the film looks a little rushed. The vindication part could have been handled better. The climax is brilliantly handled.
Madhavan gives a terrific perfomance. Simran is good too. Unni and Muralidharan do their part well. The foreign actors are average.
Cinematography by Sirisha Ray captures the mood perfectly. Sam CS background score is apt. Bijit Bala could have been finer with his editing. Dialogues are good and for a debutant, Madhavan is fantastic in the direction department.
ROCKETRY is an inspirational tale and definitely not to be missed..
ROCKETRY – ROCKS !!!
