“Parmanu” chronicles the trials and tribulation of a select band of security officers who were entrusted to conceal the preparations for conducting six nuclear tests by the nation. Though the event is real, the flick is claimed to be a work of fiction. The film is scheduled to release on May 25, 2018.

John Abraham’s ‘Parmanu: The Story of Pokhran’ is produced by John Abraham Entertainment, Zee Studios, and KYTA Production. The flick stars John Abraham, as Capt. Ashwat Rana, Diana Penty as Capt. Ambalika and Boman Irani. The flick has been directed by Abhishek Sharma who has earlier given us “Tere Bin Laden” and “Tere Bin Laden, Dead or Alive.”

Watch the trailer video:

The film is loosely based on the six nuclear explosions conducted by the Indian Army at Pokhran in 1998.

The flick release was delayed for a variety of reasons which included a clash with other big versions and disputes between the producers of the film.

Of late patriotic films with a lot of jingoism have become a shore shot regimen for box office success. Earlier the mascot of patriotism was held by our very own Bharat Kumar a.k. A Manoj Kumar who gave us “Shaheed,” “Purab Aur Paschim” and “Kranti.”

Of late the baton of patriotism has been handed over to Khiladi Kumar, our Akshay Kumar. He has been churning out films with a social message. So we have him playing the Good Samaritan to Indians stranded in Kuwait in “Airlift” and spreading message of menstrual hygiene with “Pad Man.” We have a new contender for this, and he is John Abraham with his latest release “Parmanu.”
