After being delayed by a year and getting mired in controversies, John Abraham’s ‘Parmanu- The Story of Pokhran’ finally saw the light at the box office. Honestly, I was eager to watch out the film at 70 mm screen for two reasons – 1- Being John Abraham’s return after 2 years. 2- It was about our country, India.

The first half of this drama introduces us with Ashwat Raina (John Abraham), a man who lives, breathes and wishes for his country. Or to simply state, A man who had the intent to change his country’ s outlook in the world and how his vision becomes a part of mockery for some officials. The movie has a slow start and had me like yawning for the first 15 minutes. Moving ahead, the story focuses on the role reversal where the wife takes the responsibility of the house while husband at home.

Just before we actually doze off, the movie catches hold with the entry of Boman Irani. One can say, he is the actual game changer in Ashwat Raina’s life. Boman, who plays the character of Himanshu Shukla triggers back the same enthusiasm in Ashwat which he had buried 3 years back after the nuclear test failure. Then comes Diana Penty, another important key to Ashwat’s life.

The background score of the film is intriguing, much suitable to the story line. The next one hour i.e the second half had increased my curiousness to know more. Basically, the second half sheds light on Ashwat and his rest four Pandavas (team members) struggle to put their country on the map as the Global nuclear superpower.

There was not one character which made me whistle out loud as each one played their part well. Ashwat’s wife played by Anuja Shathe got too high on emotions though. The music of ‘Parmanu’ had already received a thumbs up from the audience. And when I witnessed the same on the big screen… After watching the film, I could only say one sentence-I am Proud to be an Indian. Yes, the music has a complete sense of Patriotism.

Overall, Director Abhishek Sharma’s vision to make a historical event seem interesting on the screen has left me satisfied. I witnessed the similar hooting and cheer from the rest of the audience when I watched Akshay Kumar‘s ‘Airlift’.

Now, do Ashwat Raina and his Pandavas sail or drown through all the hardships and obstacles is left for you to go and actually see.

Talking about the other songs of the film, the makers had release a romantic track titled ‘Ishq Di Baajiyaan’ which was sung by the man himself Diljit Dosanjh. The lyrics penned by Gulzar Saab, the cute chemistry between Taapsee and Singh made the song more special. (Also Read:‘Soorma’ Diljit Dosanjh promotes his upcoming film in style!)
