‘Tenet’ Is An Action-Packed Ride Through Space & Time

Christopher Nolan is a master of his craft. He takes seemingly simple concepts like dreams and transforms them into stories you need multiple viewings to understand. His latest movie Tenet is no different. We see the Protagonist (John David Washington) in the midst of a CIA operation ready to enter the Kiev Opera House to retrieve a package. The mission goes south, and the Protagonist, along with his team, is captured. The Protagonist, while being tortured, swallows his silver pill and wakes up on a boat. Fay (Martin Donovan), the protagonist’s head at CIA tells him he is a rogue agent now and works for an organisation called Tenet that is trying to prevent a World War III in the future based on the clues that have travelled to the past through time inversion.

The movie goes nice and slow in the beginning

Christopher Nolan doesn’t put us in the middle of time inversion right from the beginning. We see the story slowly building up to it with new rules revealed with every scene. We have the arms dealer from Mumbai Priya Singh (Dimple Kapadia), who knows a lot more than she says and ultimately gives the Protagonist the mission that will avert World War III. Priya and the Protagonist’s target is Andrei Sator (Kenneth Branagh), a Russian arms dealer who has discovered a way to communicate with the future and has some very sinister plans for the present. The Protagonist’s handler Neil (Robert Pattinson) who is with him every step along the way but knows more than he lets on. Each of these characters tells us more about the time inversion and the disaster they are trying to stop.

There is no other storyteller like Nolan

We have seen our fair share of sci-fi movies, but no one can take concepts like these and convert them into something so entwined and simple at the same time. If your focus is on the movie, there is not a single part that will feel alien to you. If your attention strays from the movie, there might be times where you will wonder about a giant plane crash and why suddenly things seem to be going backwards. So make sure you have taken all your breaks before the movie begins.

John David Washington and Robert Pattinson are a formidable duo

While there are many characters at play here, it is on John David Washington and Robert Pattinson’s characters to make sure that World War III doesn’t happen and they do it with suave. There are fancy suits or fancy break-in plans involved and in a lot of ways making it a heist movie. Dimple Kapadia is impressive as a member of Tenet. Kenneth Branagh as the Russian oligarch is truly menacing and ruthless, making sure the stakes are always high.


Tenet is a more action-packed film than most Christopher Nolan movies, and still bears the director’s trademark storytelling that keeps you hooked to the plot long after the movie is over. Don’t miss to watch this one in theatres.
