Soon, Akshay responded to the appreciation from Madhavan on X. He wrote, "Thank you so much Maddy for showering so much praise and love on the film."

Akshay portrays the role of Jaswant Singh Gill in this true story, which revolves around how the mining engineer from IIT Dhanbad rescued 65 trapped miners at the Raniganj Coalfields in 1989. It also stars Kumud Mishra, Pavan Malhotra, Ravi Kishan, Varun Badola and Dibyendu Bhattacharya. The film has collected just over 18 crore in India so far. It released on October 6.

Review of the film

The film has mostly received positive reviews from the critics. An excerpt from the Hindustan Times review of the film read: “While Kumar delivers a sincere performance showing immense conviction portraying Gill's part, it's the storytelling that doesn't do full justice to the plot. Director Tinu Suresh Desai weaves the screenplay in a manner that it keeps you engaged and invested, with several hard-hitting moments. However, he majorly falters at places where he lets his hero take the centerstage, putting the story at the backseat. In portions where Kumar dominates most of the screen time, the focus is primarily on his actions and efforts rather than the ordeal of the miners stuck deep in the mine. That's when you feel that perhaps a little more attention could have been paid to others as well."
