On the opening dayParmanu started off slow with Rs 4.82 crore but on the weekend, the John Abraham film witnessed a notable spike. Parmanu is based on the nuclear bomb test explosions which had taken place in 1998 in Rajasthan's Pokhran. In his review for NDTV, Saibal Chatterjee gave Parmanu 1.5 stars out of 5."The Parmanu script, which unabashedly attributes the success of India's nuclear programme to one prime minister and his chief scientific adviser, serves a deliberate, blatantly lopsided, please-the-current-powers-that-be purpose. It suggests that nobody in India had ever thought of tapping nuclear power as a means to ensuring both security and peace for the nation," he wrote.
