It’s an epic thrilling ride that will make you stay to the edge of your seat until the last scene of the movie. But if you want to understand this movie part wise then we’re here to make you understand the film in four parts. The first part has been already explained. But if you haven’t watched the film yet, then watch it now on prime video. And if you still have something not understood then read our all 4 articles on TENET that will solve all your mind-bending doubts. Before going further, first take a glimpse on the trailer 1 of TENET:
Freeport and Turnstitle
In the last article, you understood the first 38 min of the movie which was important to understand Sator and his plan. Now, I’m going to make you understand what happened at the Freeport in Oslo’s Airport.
In Oslo Airport, when Both the protagonist and Neil arrived as a special guest in Freeport, Mihir and his partner started to evacuate Boeing 747, so that they could crash it that would cause distraction. This will give Neil and The Protagonist time to steal Goya and burn it that will make Kat free from Sator.
In TENET movie, the Boeing 747 was carrying Gold but as the plane was going to crash, Mihir and his partner evacuated the plane along with throwing the gold out of the plane. Mihir after taking control of the plane, crashed it in a construction building. This caused distraction and everyone was near the plane except Neil and The Protagonist.
In TENET movie, they knew the freeport would release Halide gas which is a poison to inhale, so both of them went to the room where they needed to find Goya but without taking a breath. After getting into the room, they found someone was already in there. And what they discovered was many bullet holes in a glass which was inverted.
Suddenly two men arrived at the same time running towards The Protagonist and Neil. These two men were inverted, and one of them started a fight with The Protagonist. On the other hand-
Neil after seeing the other guy, didn’t do anything, instead he ran to save The Protagonist or should I say the other inverted man.
The inverted man went outside the freeport by moving backwards, while to know what happened with The Protagonist at the freepost, The Protagonist went Mumbai to meet Priya.
While meeting Priya, The Protagonist explained he was attacked by two antagonists, where one was regular and the other was inverted, like we saw in the movie during the Freeport scene. But Priya explained, they emerged at the same time means they were the same person and both were inverted. So, what we saw were not two antagonists but one and both were inverted.
They emerged from a vault named Turnstitle, built by Sator with the help of Posterity- Future people.
What is Turnstile??- It’s a machine that is used for inverting. This technology hasn’t been invented yet but has been given it by the future to Sator. Tough The Protagonist was close to meet Sator but failed. And still he has one chance through Kat. Priya gives him advice to steal Plutonium-241 from the Ukranian Secret Service. Because during the Opera Siege at Kiev, Sator tried to lift the only loose Plutonium-241. Sator though got his team back but not the Plutonium. It was taken by the Ukranian Secret Service.
Meeting Sator and plan to steal Plutonium-241
In TENET movie, through Kat, The protagonist finally met the Sator. But before that, The Protagonist found a reason to meet him. He told Kat to make him meet Sator as a former first secretary from the American embassy in Riyadh where both Kat and the Protagonist met at a party last June.
On that night during the dinner, The Protagonist finally met Sator. After asking the Protagonist whether he slept with her wife Kat or not. Further he threatened to kill him. But when he asked Sator about the Opera-
He started having interest and he invited him in the morning on the ride to understand what the Protagonist knew about the Opera.
Next morning, Kat had an argument with Sator and looked more spirited than ever. She looked spirited as she knew the drawing had been destroyed. But when she saw Goya again, she was shocked and angry at the same time at the Protagonist. Sartor explained, he had instincts that told him to to remove it from the vault, and these instincts came from the future that means posterity.
On the ride, at 8AM, Sator asked the Protagonist- What you know about the Opera.
The Protagonist reply- A remote Russian missile station was overwhelmed and held for a week. When the station was retaken, 241 on one head was three quarters of a kilo lighter. The missing 241 surfaced at the Opera House siege in Kiev on the 14th.
Now from the above content, you must understand what happened at the Opera Siege in the start of the film. After knowing all of these from him, the Protagonist offered him to do a partnership with him but Sator refused as he had no records. Frustrated, Kat tried to drown Sator under the water so as to get freedom but The Protagonist saved him.
Red-headed Kat asked him why he saved Sator. The Protagonist explained, if he had to kill him, then the whole world would die along with her son. But why is his life more important?? To get the answer, read more below to find out.
Sator doesn’t like to be in dept. So, in order to fill that, he invited the Protagonist for a drink and there, Sator explained something about himself. He’s the one who dug plutonium from the Rubble of his city- Stalsk-12. It was his first contract from the upper company. From there he started imagining an ambitious life, which he was living now.
Sator was waiting for some gold, and being curious for Kat, The Protagonist went to check Sator’s doing. After being caught from hiding, The Protagonist and Sator made a deal, if the Protagonist springs the material, he will pay him off by one of his gold. He paid him in advance and from there, the Protagonist and Neil started a plan to Heist the Plutonium-241.
In TENET movie, the gold was important that The Protagonist got, but Neil didn’t find anything to understand how he collects the inverted objects. After spending time with Sator, The Protagonist explained, Sator buries his time capsule, transmits the location and digs it up to collect the inverted material that future sends it to him. For ambush, both planned to have Fast have fast cars that don’t look fast, Calvary and fire trucks that will make it possible to ambush.
