Trivia

About 30 metric tons of methyl isocyanate (MIC) escaped from the tank into the atmosphere in 45 to 60 minutes. See more »

Goofs

Throughout the movie, the role of sodium hypochlorite has been emphasised as an antidote to the poisonous effects of MIC (methyl isocyanate) gas. However, there is no known antidote for MIC poisoning, and the treatment is largely based on supportive care. There does exist an antidote for cyanide poisoning, which can occur as part of impurities present in MIC itself. The antidote for cyanide poisoning is a combination of amyl nitrite and sodium thiosulphate. See more »

Every Indian even every person should watch this one

Watched Bhopal: A Prayer for Rain

Before watching I was knowing very little about Bhopal gas tragedy but while watching this movie I felt that my heart was chocked up… And even after reading facts about the World's largest industrial disaster I felt very angry one our government and US Government. Really very touching movie and disturbing movie… Acting of everyone was simply superb, Specially of Rajpal Yadav. After long time I found him in life long character. Direction was splendid and the hidden meaning behind many scenes was superb. Some of my favorites: 1. In starting child were shown catching flying bug and in ending blind person was trying to catch flying bug. It shows the dangerous effect of gas leak. 2. In Starting and end, Horse was shown running without any rider which means that there is nothing left in Bhopal's life. Even those who were not dead their life is also blank. And many more… Every Indian even every person should watch this one.
