Talking about "Rocketry: The Nambi Effect", the film is based on the life of scientist and aerospace engineer S. Nambi Narayanan. As a senior official at the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), Narayanan was in charge of the cryogenics division. In 1994, he was falsely charged with espionage and arrested. The charges were dismissed by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in 1996, and the Supreme Court declared him not guilty in 1998.
Apart from directing, Madhavan essays the protagonist Nambi Narayanan while Simran Bagga plays the female lead. The trailer of the film was released a couple of days ago and it will be releasing in English, Hindi, Telugu, Malayalam, Tamil, and Kannada languages this summer.
