Due to a technical error, the team couldn’t get success in their first attempt to Mars. Although there was a minor error in Tara’s part, her colleague Rakesh, bears the blame. The other officials in the ISRO didn’t have any definite idea about the Mangal plan, but Rakesh and Tara decided to complete the project successfully in 24 months. They gather the young scientists in ISRO and bring them under them for Mission Mangal. Did they succeed in their project and made India pride? Watch the film to see the rest.

Star Performance

Akshay and Vidya’s performances are stunning. They lived as scientists, who want to do something useful to the nation. They have expressed their patriotism well. The rest of the stars including Sonakshi, Nithya, Taapsee, Kriti, Sharman Joshi and Dattatreya are excellent.


The story is neat and the screenplay is perfect. Although we don’t know much about what happens in ISRO, this movie has shown something that brings Goosebumps. It is clearly visible that the director had taken the cinematic liberty on his hands to make the film get a good appeal. The emotional scenes are well balanced. Although we could see the cinematic moments, when we see India succeeding in its attempt, we can’t control our joy. Because we think about it as real. The cinematography, VFX works, Sound design and music are excellent.
