| This movie will revisit you proud moment for whole nation

Tere Bin Laden series fame Abhishek Sharma has come up with historical Thriller drama of Nuclear Bomb testing. This genre looks boring for general public but he keep the momentum with solid performance and script.


John Abraham has given another Madras Cafe type performance for this movie. Diana Penty was looks good in her role. Bohan Irani was great in touch with his role. Zachary Coffin is now regular Bollywood's Gora Man. Master Arush Nand and Aditya Hitkari also done good job.


Brilliant job done by Saiwyn Quadras, Sanyuktha Chawla Sheikh and Abhishek Sharma. There are many wow factors in this movie. First one was the inclusion of Maharbahrat and Pandavs concept. Second one, Real life video footage of Atal Bihari, Nawaz Sharif, Bill Cilton added more weigh into script.


Sachin-Jigar and Jeet Ganguly 's music was good as it suits with the situation and did not put break into speed of script. " Shubh Din" and "Thare Vaaste" are really great one.


As word of mouth is good for this movie, Footfall will be increase on Saturday and Sunday. Second week will be crucial one. We can expect 40-50 crores lifetime collection for this one.

Last words:

Don't miss the chance to become witness of proud moment
