Mission Mangal Movie Review:
This movie shows us how tough it is for scientists at ISRO to complete their tasks. The struggle of their families and making them their second priority because please search is their first priority. This is the first film in Bollywood to show search a concept.
One of the highest achievements for ISRO would be in 2014 when they launched March Orbiter mission also known as the Mangalyaan mission. This movie focuses on this part of ISRO, it can leave you feeling deeply patriotic. It also focuses on the life of the scientists working at ISRO since we know very little about their lives
This story starts in 2010 at ISRO when their team which is led by a person called Rakesh to launch a spacecraft into space but due to some technical errors, the mission failed unexpectedly all this incident happened under the Mission Director Tara, however, Rakesh was ready to take the blame.
Later on, Rakesh is assigned to a Mars Mission at ISRO. Even though none of the scientists believed that such a mission would be possible. Rakesh and Tara make up their own team and decide to complete their task within 24 Months. It seemed to be an impossible task.
The complex scientific theories are simple to find for a common man to understand the movie also uses some concepts of alternative science to air some entertainment and there are some quite impressive characters in the m o m team which consisted of Tara played by Vidya Balan, Eka played by Sonakshi Sinha , Neha played by Kirti Kulhari, Kritika played by Taapsse Pannu and last but not least Varsha played by Nithya Menen.
Since the audience cannot understand specific theories equations and numbers the film also simplifies those concepts so the US can actually enjoy the movie. The CGI of this sim is not really impressive. However, the feeling of Patriotism and national pride will keep you up throughout the movie The performance by the leading cast is also very strong and impressive having Akshay Kumar and Vidya Balan as Leads don't leave a chance to impress the audiences by their engagement performances.
This is equally done by Sonakshi Sinha Taapsee Pannu Kriti Kolhari Nithya Menon there is Sharman Joshi E and H D Dattatreya who also play some role in their team as guest appearances we have Sanjay Kapoor and Dalip Tahil who talks in a half American half Indian accent.
Create each character are Baki and director Jagan Shakti has done a good job making mission mangal with many emotional ups and downs.
The film shows some concepts of feminism too. Like the members of the MOM team are mostly women. Its tries to tell us that Women are equally capable just like Men to engage in fields of research and science.
Overall, it is a nice movie with an inspiring plot and strong characters and a family movie.
