The story of ‘Mission Majnu’
Amandeep Ajitpal Singh aka Tariq is an Indian spy in this fictional story inspired by true events. He was posted there as a tailor to inform India about suspicious activities in Pakistan. Tariq’s father has accused him of being a traitor, and Amandeep is ready to go to any lengths to clear that stigma. In such a scenario, Roe gives him a task to find nuclear power plants in Pakistan and stop them. On this path of espionage, Tariq falls in love with the blind Nasreen (Rashmika Mandanna). He also marries her and is going to be a father, in fact Rashmika is the cover for this Indian secret agent.
Here Pakistan is setting the trap of secret nuclear testing. During his mission, Tariq meets two other spies, Kumud Mishra and Sharib Hashmi. Will he be able to work with these two RAW agents to expose Pakistan’s secret nuclear testing exploits? Will Tariq be able to convince Nasreen that he is Amandeep? Will he be able to wash away the stigma of being the son of a traitor? All these questions will be answered after watching the movie.

Review of ‘Mission Majnu’
Before this, many films like ‘Ek Tha Tiger’, ‘Baby’, ‘Madras Cafe’, ‘Raazi’ and ‘Mukhbir’ have been released focusing on Indian spies. Shantanu Bagchi also follows the same thread as the director. His story line isn’t interesting either, but he can’t live with his execution. The movie fails to offer anything new. In the first half, the director spends a lot of time developing the story and characters. When it comes to the real problem, a lot of time is spent. Tariq and Nasreen’s love story seems to be a movie. The most important aspect of a detective film is suspense and thrill. Both of these are lacking in the film. There has also been a lot of carelessness in character development. The feeling of patriotism also does not add up in that way. Patriotic scenes are forced through India and Pakistan.
Talking about the music, ‘Rabba Jandaan’ and ‘Maati Ko Ma Kehte Hai’ are mellow in the voices of Jubin Nautiyal and Sonu Nigam. The background score is in keeping with the theme. Cinematography by Bijitesh is decent. Editing should have been tighter. The art director uses green color everywhere to show the environment of Pakistan. The climax is strong.
Coming to the performances, Sidharth Malhotra is charming and convincing as the unsung heroes like Tariq and Amandeep. He easily and effortlessly adapts to all shades of character. Rashmika has tried her best to strengthen her character in the role of Nasreen, a blind woman, but her character is flat rather than layered. Kumud Mishra shines again. Sharib Hashmi proves that he can do justice to all kinds of roles. After a long gap, it is good to see Parmeet Sethi back on screen as the head of Raw. Ashwit Bhatt and Zakir Hussain also froze.
Why do you see- Fans of patriotism and espionage movies can watch this movie.
