Mission Majnu, the upcoming Indian original film, is set to premiere on Netflix on Friday. The film, which was originally planned for a theatrical release last year, was acquired by Netflix in December. Starring Sidharth Malhotra, the patriotic spy-thriller is based on true events from India's covert operation in the 1970s.
The film follows the story of an undercover RAW (Research and Analysis Wing) agent, played by Malhotra, who is assigned to expose and take down Pakistan's covert nuclear weapons program. The title "Majnu" is a term that means a maniac, referring to someone who is willing to put their nation ahead of themselves. The film also has a layer of romance elements, as the protagonist's relationship is used to strengthen his cover within Pakistan.
It's worth noting that the events depicted in the film are not fully recorded in history and the film focuses on an unnamed RAW agent or an amalgamation of them, whose names were never mentioned in history. In an interview, Malhotra stated that "Since it's not so accurately documented - as to about this mission - it is inspired by a true event, so we had a lot of public domain information as to what really transpires. At least for my character."
Critics and audiences alike are eagerly awaiting the release of Mission Majnu on Netflix. The film promises to offer a thrilling and action-packed experience, while also shedding light on a little-known chapter of India's history.
