Back in 2019, R Madhavan had started shooting for his directorial debut Rocketry: The Nambi Effect. The actor has not only written and directed the biographical drama but he is also playing the lead role in Rocketry. The film is based on the life of Nambi Narayanan, a former scientist and aerospace engineer of the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) who was accused of espionage.

Today, the handsome actor finally dropped the first trailer of his directorial debut and just like all his previous work, Maddy is terrific in Rocketry.

The 2.45 minutes long trailer cleverly sets the premise of the film right from how immensely talented Nambi was and how his talent was underutilized by the Indian authorities. No matter how talented you are, corruption and internal politics always come into play. Nambi is accused of espionage. His patriotism is questioned and soon the man’s genius is seen as his arrogance. Nambi’s patriotism for an ignorant nation became the cause of his destruction.

Madhavan’s transformation showcasing the various stages of the scientist’s life is applaud worthy. Apart from Madhavan, Rocketry also stars Simran, Suriya, Rajit Kapoor. Interestingly, Shah Rukh Khan also makes an appearance in the trailer. Featuring in a special appearance, the superstar is apparently playing himself in this biographical drama.

You can check out the trailer below:

The trailer makes a strong commentary on the social, political and moral compass of Indian society in more than one ways. Bankrolled by Madhavan, Varghese Moolan, Vijay Moolan, Rocketry is all set to release this year. The makers are yet to decide its release date.
