 Star Performance

John Abraham looks majestic in his role Ashwath Raina. Diana Penty, Anuja Sathe and Boman Irani play the supporting roles well.


Abhishek Sharma has taken a big task in this venture. Although we are not sure of the authenticity of the script, the scenes are entertaining. Certain scenes make us feel emotional as well as proud of our nation. Although the narration is not much impressive, some performances make the audiences engaged in the film. Abhishek is to be appreciated for mixing all the emotions well in the story, which is based on the real-life incident.

What’s There?

  • Script and screenplay are good
  • Performances of the stars are excellent
  • Emotional scenes impress the audiences
  • CG works and cinematography are amazing

What’s Not There?

Parmanu: The Story of Pokhran is neat and impressive. Don’t expect much! But, it will impress you for sure, if you love to see India’s success in its defense attempts.
