Mission Majnu, directed by Shantanu Bagchi, follows a slew of similar films defined by chest-thumping nationalism and set during a particularly polarized period in India’s history. Mission Majnu, an action-thriller starring Sidharth Malhotra and Rashmika Mandanna, was originally slated for a theatrical release before being picked up by Netflix. It appears to be the latest in a new wave of nationalist-minded Indian films in which Pakistan is almost always the enemy.
Malhotra plays Amandeep Singh, an R&AW (Research and Analysis Wing) agent sent to Pakistan to gather intelligence on the development of a nuclear device. Amandeep goes undercover as a handyman and finally falls in love with a Pakistani woman named Nasreen (Mandanna). Amandeep’s resolve is tested against the backdrop of a rising 1971 Indo-Pakistani War, as he is torn between his commitment to his country and his love for Nasreen. By the way, “Majnu” is the Latin equivalent of “Romeo.”
What time will Mission Majnu release online?
Following delays, Mission Majnu will release on Netflix on Friday, 20 January 2023 at 12.30 pm IST/ 11 pm PT/ 2 am ET.
