The film is based on the nuclear test which was conducted by Indian Army in Pokhran, Rajasthan in 1998 during the leadership of the former missile man and President APJ Abdul Kalam. The film showcases the efforts put by the Indian army and the people of ISRO while giving a stellar reply to the superpower of the world that even India can compete in terms of Nuke power. So, how it all goes under the leadership of army officers played by John and Diana is interesting to catch.
The film discusses the efforts of an army officer to see his country empowered with Nuke power when the world is laughing at the country. Despite all the odds, he is able to convince the newly elected government to have the test and make the world realize that India is no behind the super power. The film essentially showcases the pride, which the director has showcased with great care and with great care. The director is able to showcase how the politics and bad governance can make fun of the serious love for the country thus in a way making it a satire as well. On the other side, the film has a gripping story, which is backed with perfect implementation giving some of the best performances of the lead actors. The script seems fresh and gives hope to the countrymen who are now leading a life with negative thoughts due to the hollow promises of the current government that things could change if the right people with right vision come into power.
This in a way makes the film very much relevant to the current political conditions along with showcasing the reality and drama showcased when the Nuke test was taking the shape. The story is gripping and somewhere makes the audience glued to the seats. Now talking about the performances of the lead actor, John Abraham as a lead actor has simply nailed it with his incredible performance and so was the case with Diana in the film. The others like Boman Irani, Vikas Kumar and Yogendra Tiku too have impressed with their incredible performances. The other elements like music and other direction and other elements too are impressive lifting the entertainment value of the film in a big way.
