This year’s most talked-about film is Mission Raniganj, which stars Parineeti Chopra and Akshay Kumar. Although the film created a lot of excitement when it first came out, its box office performance was disappointing. The epic survival film tells the true story of Jaswant Singh Gill, a mining engineer who bravely saved men trapped in the Raniganj Coalfields in 1989. Although there was a lot of hype about the film initially, its box office performance was disappointing. It debuted in theatres on October 6 with much anticipation, and it’s currently accessible on a popular OTT site.
Today, December 1, marks the official release of Mission Raniganj: The Great Bharat Rescue, starring Akshay Kumar and Parineeti Chopra, on the well-known streaming service Netflix. The film had been in theatres for almost two months before this release. A while back, Netflix, a streaming platform, used its Instagram account to inform its followers and fans about the movie’s OTT release.
Netflix shared a promotional video and stated, “An impossible task. One common man. An unwavering spirit. #MissionRaniganj is now streaming on Netflix.”
The Great Bharat Rescue narrates the tale of Jaswant Singh Gill, an IIT Dhanbad graduate and mining engineer. A pivotal moment in his life—leading a rescue effort that rescued some 65 coal workers trapped in West Bengal’s Raniganj coalfields in 1989—is an inspiration for the movie.
The film, which Tinu Suresh Desai helms, stars Parineeti Chopra and Akshay Kumar and a strong ensemble of supporting actors. This features prominent roles by actors like Omkar Das Manikpuri, Virendra Saxena, Rajesh Sharma, Sudhir Pandey, Bachan Pachera, Ananth Mahadevan, Kumud Mishra, Pavan Malhotra, Ravi Kishan, Varun Badola, Dibyendu Bhattacharya, Rajesh Sharma, and Sudhir Sharma.
