Be it any genre, thriller movies are always exciting to watch. In the past we have seen films like A Wednesday, Baby, Drishyam, Kahaani and many more which were not only liked by the critics by also did very well at the box-office. Thriller movies bring in elements of surprise, anxiety, suspense which keep the audiences glued to their seats. PARMANU: The Story of Pokhran is a thriller in its core despite the fact that it’s based on a true incident and the trailer promises that it is going to be an exciting film. There is already a lot of buzz generated about the film and the trailer has just gone and raised the buzz among the audiences.

Star Cast

The film sees John Abraham and Diana Penty in lead roles; John Abraham has over the years proved how good he is when it comes to thriller and action films. Perhaps, even as a producer, he has proved his mettle with the choice of subjects and budgeting. He also produces this film. And here he plays the role of a tough Army officer who will do whatever it takes to realise the dream of making India a nuclear state. Along with him there is Diana Penty and the class apart actor Boman Irani who fits in almost any character brilliantly.

Sound Track

The music of the film is given by Sachin – Jigar and the song Shubh Din is penned by Vayu and sung by Jyotica Tangri and Keerthi Sagathis. The song glorifies Indian achievements and has a good mixture of Rajashtani folk music in it and the song Jitni Dafa sung by Yasser Desai and Jeet Gannguli has crossed over 4.5 millions views in just 24 hours of its release.

We believe that if the film promises to live up to expectations, it will do very well by virtue of word of mouth.
