Christopher Nolan's Tenet has been one of the most anticipated global releases of 2020. The film after several delays due to COVID-19, has finally released in some parts of the world, as theatres have reopened for business. The film will release in 70 countries in coming weeks and has already hit theatres in many countries on August 26. A few days ago, critics shared their verdict on the sci-fi film and now, the audiences have also given their thumbs up to it.
Earlier this week, Tom Cruise also made a surprise visit to a theatre in London for Tenet's release. Everyone in the clip can be seen taking precautionary measures while in public, like wearing masks and keeping a safe distance. Since India is not yet ready to open theatres, it is unlikely that Tenet will release in the country anytime soon.

Some even said that to understand the film, you may have to watch it more than once or twice. One user wrote, "After watching tenet, i think it's safe to say my brain has never felt more empty and confused yet still amazed #TENET".

Meanwhile, critics have had mixed response to the film. , "the best and worst of Nolan. Spread over a broad and beautiful canvas spanning seven countries, it has a barely comprehensible plot which has been sending the internet into a frenzy of arcane intellectual speculation since a short teaser trailer was released months ago," said Sydney Morning Herald film critic Sandra Hall. Irish critic Alan Corr, who writes for RTE, called Tenet a ‘head-wreck.' and UK's The Guardian called it ‘superb cinema.'
