The film opened to mixed review. Film critic Saibal Chatterjee, in his review for NDTV, gave Parmanu1.5 stars out of 5."The 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.
The film was announced in April last year. However, the film's shooting was rescheduled on several occasions, in order to avoid clash with Sanjay Leela Bhansali's "Padmaavat" and also due to the legal tussle between Prernaa Arora'a production house KriArj Entertainment and John Abraham's JA Entertainment.
