Every Indian wants to see a film that makes them proud on Independence Day, and superstar Akshay Kumar knows this very well, and this time he brought a film, which is based on the country’s most glorious and most successful space mission.
Story:- The story of the film is based on ISRO’s Mars project when several women scientists of ISRO (Indian Space Research Organization) launched the satellite in the orbit of Mars on 24 September 2014. Subsequently, India became the first country in the world to succeed in this mission on its very first attempt and also at a very low budget. The film begins in 2010, where ISRO’s well-known scientist and mission director Rakesh Dhawan (Akshay Kumar) collaborates with ISRO’s scientist and project director Tara Shinde (Vidya Balan) for a mission called GSLV C-39. Launches, but unfortunately there mission fails, as a result Rakesh is transferred to near impossible mars mission, there Tara gets an idea from home scince, Both of them assure ISRO head Vikram Gokhale for this project, but the biggest challenge before them is the the budget and stiff opposition from EX NASA officer Dilip Tahil. On Rakesh’s request, he is given a team of inexperienced scientists like Aika Gandhi (Sonakshi Sinha), Kritika Aggarwal (Taapsee Pannu), Varsha Pillay (Nitya Menon), Parmeshwar Naidu (Sharman Joshi) and HG Dattatreya (Anant Iyer). All these are not at all serious about the mission.
Review:- Mission Mangal is Director Jagan Shakti’s debut movie, and he has managed to make an impact with a film based on science and true historical events. Yes, he has taken cinematic liberty at many places to give mass appeal to the characters, which seems childish at some places, but in spite of this he has firmly held the end of the emotion. The director tried to describe the journey of Mangalyaan mission on the basis of home science and other scientific facts, but he didn’t succeed when it comes to special effects, VFX could have been better, space scenes would have looked better with better VFX,
Crisp storytelling, impressive background scores and a clutching climax are the film’s plus points, but the PM’s entry and his commentary were not needed at the end of the film. The performance of all the actors makes the film entertaining. Akshay Kumar has done brilliant job as Rakesh Dhawan, on his one liners, the audience not only smiles but also applauds. Actress Vidya Balan is the true star of the film. She has lived the role of a scientist and a common mother and a wife so beautifully that the audience does not live without being enthralled.
Sonakshi is good as Aika Gandhi, Taapsee maintains the naturalness of her character. Sharman Joshi has done very well in his role, Sanjay Kapoor, Nitya Menon, Kirti Kulhari, Zeeshan Ayub, Anant Iyer have given good support in spite of small roles.
Overall Mission Mangal we would suggest you to watch Mission Mangal this weekend, you will feel nothing but proud.
