R Madhavan is basking in the glory of his directorial debut, Rocketry: The Nambi Effect, as the film continues to entertain audiences. The film, which had a theatrical release on July 1, continues to have a decent run at the box office, despite facing stiff competition from fresh releases. Bollywood actor Anupam Kher is the latest to shower praise on this one, referring to the film as outstanding, moving and inspirational. The Special 26 actor added that every Indian should apologise to rocket scientist Nambi Narayanan, who was once wrongly accused of espionage. “It is certainly one of the best films that I have seen of late,” he said, further, complimenting the choice of dialogues and the casting.

Kher added Madhavan's performance was world-class and went on to say he was just “phenomenal” on screen.

On his part, Madhavan expressed gratitude on Instagram, thanking Kher, for his words.

In Rocketry: The Nambi Effect, Madhavan is seen essaying the role of rocket scientist Nambi Narayanan. The film is based on the life of the former rocket scientist at the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), who was falsely accused of espionage and arrested in 1994. Shot in India, France, Canada, Georgia and Serbia, and is out in six languages worldwide, including Hindi, English, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada.

Rajinikanth has already lauded the film on Twitter. “Rocketry is a must-see movie, especially for young people,” he wrote in Tamil, adding, “Madhavan has demonstrated that he is a capable filmmaker in his directorial debut. Padma Bhushan awardee Nambi Narayanan's efforts and sorrows have been depicted most authentically. I congratulate and admire him for having made this film!”

Was Narayanan convinced that Madhavan could play him on film and give the true story? “Yes, Nambi Narayanan had worries about this, and if as an actor I could grasp a rocket scientist's achievements and his work,” Madhavan added. “But I didn't want to produce a film about the case; instead, I wanted to make a film about his accomplishments. He was continually assessing me where I understood a little bit of physics to grasp what rocket science was about and being technologically and engineering-inclined, I think I knew enough for him to say by the end of the day that I wish you were on my team!”

Rocketry: The Nambi Effect will premiere on Amazon Prime Video from July 26.
