Why to watch vs why not to
The recreation of these epic proud moments of India’s history where Parmanu tells a story of cat and mouse thriller is a treat to watch for Indian audience.
The film gives an ultimate ultra-patriotic feeling through the excitement of these adrenaline-driven story is something you cannot miss. John Abraham plays quite an intense but reserved military official in the film which is adorable. John Abraham seems great in his new look and helm a quite different scale of character, say bit of realistic to his side. Diana Penty in the group of proud men who actually made the mission possible seems quite effective and additionally great for the film. The film do says that it is inspired by the true events but there is an entertaining fictional masala used to keep audience entertaining. The film does loose the depth in the film where it could possible quite much of reason. Overall the film is a must-watch for every Indian to know about the history and this epic moment of patriotism.
