New Delhi: R Madhavan is back with a bang, literally. The teaser for his next, Rocketry – The Nambi Effect, dropped today and already has the Internet buzzing.

The movie is based on a true story of senior Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) scientist Nambi Narayanan and the Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM). India beat Russia and America with their maiden attempt with this mission at a lower cost but the teaser piques your curiosity when Madhavan playing Nambi says, "What if I say we could have achieved this accomplishment twenty years ago?" 

It concludes with an ominous dialogue, "I spent 35 years in rocketry and 50 days in prison. My nation paid the price of those 50 days and this story is about that. It’s not about me."

The real-life Nambi was charged with espionage in 1994. However, CBI dismissed the charges against him in 1996 and in 1998, and the Supreme Court declared him not guilty. 

The teaser seems to have caught actor Aamir Khan's fancy too as he tweeted his fans to check it out. 

The movie will be released in English, Hindi, Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam in 2019.
