SYNOPSIS: Rocketry - The Nambi Effect is a retelling of Shri Nambi Narayanan's life story as it unravels in an interview by the celebrated superstar and Badshah of Bollywood, Shahrukh 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 aren't we standing up collectively to defend our innocence and powerlessness 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 he's just the beginning.
