Madhavan speech from Rocketry- The Nambi Effect teaser launch

Nambi Narayanan is an Indian Scientist, who worked with the Indian Space Research Organisation till 2001 after which he retired. He is infamous for being falsely accused of Espionage by the CBI and Kerala Police Department.

Actor Madhavan has now taken up a project that is based on the life of this legendary scientist. The movie, titled Rocketry - The Nambi Effect. Rocketry is getting released in 3 Languages - Tamil, English and Hindi. It is being produced by Tricolour Films in association with Vijay Moolan Talkies and Saffron Ganesha Entertainment. It is directed by Ananth Mahadevan and R. Madhavan.

The teaser of Rocketry had released yesterday. Speaking at the teaser launch at Mumbai, he said:

“This film has become an obsession for me. Three years ago, Anant Mahadevan narrated me the story of Nambi Narayanan. I felt that it’s story of man who has faced injustice in his life because he was jailed over false charges.

After that, I started writing script on him and it took me seven months to write that script. When I used to meet him regarding script writing that time, he never used to talk about his achievements but as I kept talking to him, I realized I am doing an injustice with this story because I am only talking about his case.

I feel sometimes that a man wronged is a nation wronged… So, to do injustice with him (Nambi Narayanan) is like doing injustice to the country. I, therefore, threw the script which I wrote for seven months. I took another one-and-half year to write script of this film with Anant Mahadevan and other writers.

I am sure that 95 per cent of the country’s population doesn’t know about Nambi Narayanan, which I think is a crime and the 5 per cent of population that knows about him doesn’t know his entire story.”
