Wholehearted portrayal of our country’s uncelebrated and untold history and its geniuses
Just like a bomb uses energy to cause an explosion, this film uses content and performances to make an impact.
Inspired by true events of nuclear bomb test explosions conducted by the Indian Army at Pokhran in 1998, the film had an exciting concept, made convincing with an equally exciting script.
The film is riveting, with both its perfections and flaws.

Abhishek Sharma, director of satirical comedy ‘Tere Bin Laden’, who could have seen such a contrasting subject coming up from the film maker.
In association with JA Entertainment, Zee Studios and KYTA Production, the director delivers a film that stands out for its involvement quotient.
Alekh (Story) – Patkatha (Screenplay)
India needed nuclear weapons to defend its territory, stand and pride. And this is what the story is about, covertly developed and tested nukes.
Since it is based on true events, the thrill naturally ensues.
Then the script around it is very nicely developed. The film starts on good pace, doesn’t takes time to develop characters, it neither rushes the same.
It progresses with the right flow, be it delivering information, telling facts and establishing characters. Even a layman would understand all the politics, schemes and disputes shown in the film, between nations and within the nation. That’s how convincing Saiwyn Quadras, Sanyuktha Chawla Shaikh and Abhishek Sharma’s screenplay is. Even the dialogues are such, nothing filmy, nothing extra ordinary but still believable. That’s why we think, the film even with its flaws, was good.
One trait the film lacked was, surprise elements and more thrills. It is engaging but we wanted a script that could make us anxious for the next scene.
While the film leaves you contemplating about the whole fuss on possession of weapons (at least it made us), it also leaves you feeling proud and satisfied. It isn’t forcibly patriotic but has a balanced flag-waving way to it.
The humor touch comes as a surprise and looks natural.
John Abraham is at his committed best. He drops his macho man Force avatar and looks more wonderful and relatable. Having delivered one of his finest act, the actor perfectly fits in content-driven films only, because some actors are meant to provide only quality and nothing casual. Diana Penty’s entry was amazing, and the actress pulls off her role in the most subtle and sincere way. Boman Irani truly delivers an impressive act. Vikas Kumar is very convincing as the Army Major. Yogendra Tiku makes his presence felt from his first scene and Aditya Hitkari is good in his role.
Darshan Pandya as the Pakistani spy is impressive. Anuja Sathe as John’s wife is charmingly good and catches your eye from the very first scene.
Geet Sangeet (Music)
Sachin-Jigar’s songs forms the background of many scenes and ‘Thare Vaaste’ is the only one that’s quite unforgettable. The background score is effectual.
Nirnay (FilmyCurry Verdict)
Stories like this may not be a part of entertainment-seeking audience’s appetite. Add the low buzz to it, the story may not reach to a wider segment, but it should.
Because on the arid desert land, the film has painted quite a nicely edited sketch of one of India’s proudest moments.This gloriously engaging film keeps one on their toes
