Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM) which is also called Mangalyaan is India’s greatest achievement in the field of space. This mission’s budget was less than the Hollywood film ‘Gravity’ and the world was amazed by India’s efforts to send its first satellite to Mars. But who were really behind it and how did this whole project shape up? Answer to these questions comes in the form of a feature film titled ‘Mission Mangal.’
Starring Akshay Kumar, Vidya Balan, Sonakshi Sinha, Taapsee, Nithya Menen and Kriti Kulhari in the lead roles, the film is directed by Jagan Shakti. Akshay is playing the role of scientist Rakesh Dhawan who was the man brain behind the whole mission.
The teaser shows Akshay counting down for the launch of satellite and the visual part gives goosebumps. Simultaneously the teaser reveals the other characters. Vidya Balan is seen as Tara Shinde who led the team of incredible scientists and almost all of them gave up their personal life for this mission.
‘Mission Mangal’ is scheduled for release on the occasion of Independence Day and will definitely make worth a watch.
