Paramanu is the story of India’s nuclear tests conducted in 1998 by India. Both the countries, India and the USA were having a cold standoff since the USA was supporting and influencing Pakistan during the time. India and Pakistan had gone to war 3 times before and since the USA was supplying arms and defence technology for Pakistan and creating tensions, the two countries were not in good terms. India had nuclear technology but the nuclear bombs and technology had at that time were outdated and India wanted to test and research in Nuclear weapons to make sure what the nation was capable of.
While the USA had already done numerous nuclear tests and are a military superpower they were keeping a close eye on India . At the time when the USA had an upper hand, having the latest technology in weapons, they were imposing and condemning the nation’s research in nuclear warfare.
The movie Parmanu gives us the front seat view of the brilliance with which India conversely and successfully tested three nuclear bombs and sent a message to the hypocrites we were forced to be reckoned with. This movie will make every Indian proud.
