New Delhi: The film, starring Nana Patekar, Anupam Kher, and Pallavi Joshi, opened on September 28 and was directed by Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri.
The film was well-received by audiences and reviewers alike, despite competing with the comedy-drama Fukrey 3.
Many films have focused on the spread of coronavirus and the pandemic, primarily on the misery of diverse groups during the lockdown. However, the struggle of the scientists who worked for seven months to develop India’s vaccine was never shown. In ‘The Vaccine War,’ Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri delves into this backstory.
The film, based on the book ‘Going Viral’ by former ICMR Director General Dr. Balram Bharghav, examines the difficulties faced by researchers at the ICMR and the NVI in developing India’s first indigenous vaccine in a record-setting seven months. Moreover, impressive is the fact that most of the vaccine-creating crew consisted of women.

The movie’s storyline spans from the very first day in 2020 when news reports of an unknown virus. The story is broken up into 12 chapters, each of which focuses on a different obstacle the scientific team faced and details how they overcame it.
Those who have seen the movie already have shared their thoughts on various social media sites. Their responses are as follows:
The Vaccine War ( ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️)

After watching ‘#TheVaccineWar‘ on special screening I must say it’s another gem of Bollywood by @vivekagnihotri which exposed anti india crucify journalist Rohini Singh as if she is the biggest villain against India and its war against Corona.
And it shows the power of ICMR… pic.twitter.com/90t027OwmJ

A MUST WATCH 👍
Movie shows the Journey & Sacrifices of Indian Scientists (Mostly Woman) for making India’s first Indigenous Vaccine.
Film also exposes the India’s internal toolkit gang, who makes narrative against our vaccine & scientists.

What a brilliant and absolutely scathing takedown of the propaganda masquerading as nationalism by @TheDeshBhakt
This is how you do it. 🙌https://t.co/vPrW81Uq1S

The battle for better health begins with awareness. “The Vaccine War” is a crucial step in that direction. The Vaccine War review: Realistic, Patriotic and Thrilling.
