Synopsis

Rocketry

The people who should be celebrated for their contribution to the society are usually the people who would rather stay anonymous. It is because they strive, persevere, accomplish more with less, without complaining, without wailing for attention. And in doing so, they become vulnerable to our worst instincts. 

Nambi Narayanan

Rocketry – The Nambi Effect is a retelling of Shri Nambi Narayananʼs life story as it unravels in an in- terview by the celebrated superstar and Badshah of Bollywood, Shah Rukh Khan, on a TV program. Like many great minds, Nambi is also deeply flawed, his genius and obsession earning him enemies and detractors, thus making him a compelling modern protagonist. 

Beyond serving as a treatise for the vindication of quiet achievers in society, the film also challenges the audience to take up the responsibility of recognizing, and celebrating these special contributors, whether it be a Nambi Narayanan or a teacher educating poor kids, soldiers at the border, doctors serving in remote villages, or volunteers helping the needy. It also raises a powerful question – Why arenʼt we standing up collectively to defend our innocent and powerless against the hegemony of the powers that be? For every Nambi, there are a thousand more quiet achievers fighting for justice.

Their stories need to be heard. It starts with Nambi. But heʼs just the beginning.
