What is the espionage case of ISRO?
In 1990 Indian Investigation agencies made an allegation against certain employees of ISRO. Although these allegations are now disproven, the toll that it took mentally on the minds of capable scientist was tremendous.
The Kerala police and the agencies arrayed these employees in the offence of selling confidential documents. Later on it was told that the documents contained rocket engine designs of ISRO.
One of the employees from the lot was Mr Nambi Narayan, Indian aerospace engineer of ISRO. He was soon tagged as an enemy of the country. However all he did his whole life was serve the country.
The movie beautifully explains the pain, the suffering, the tragedy that happened and how a brilliant scientist that we had, had to go through all the heinous charges.
