Introduction of Mission Mangal Movie Review

MISSION MANGAL is the incredible true story behind India’s mission to Mars. The film begins in 2010. At the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), a space mission under Rakesh Dhawan (Akshay Kumar) falls after Tara Shinde (Vidya Balan) in his team makes an error in judgment. As a punishment posting, he’s asked to handle India’s Mars program, which is not expected to take off anytime soon. A few days later, Tara while cooking puris in her home has a Eureka moment. She realizes that through innovative methods, they can try to get our satellite to reach Mars in just two years. She tells Rakesh about the plan and he realizes it’s a golden opportunity. Rakesh approaches his senior (Vikram Gokhale) for approval who finds the idea unfeasible. Also, Rupert Desai (Dalip Tahil) who has come from NASA to join ISRO feels that Rakesh’s idea is ridiculous. Rakesh, however, manages to persuade and begins work. He asks for the best of the men from ISRO for this project. However, he’s given inexperienced colleagues like Kritika Aggarwal (Taapsee Pannu), Eka Gandhi (Sonakshi Sinha), Varsha Gowda (Nithya Menen), Neha Siddiqui (Kirti Kulhari) and Parmeshwar Naidu (Sharman Joshi) and a very senior employee Ananth Iyer (HG Dattatreya). What happens next forms the rest of the film.

The 133-minute film begins with a scene in a kitchen, with Tara Shinde (Vidya Balan ) rushing through her morning chores while her family lazes around. She reminds her son to eat his meals and tells her husband about errands that need to be run before rushing to work.

MISSION MANGAL starts off beautifully showing Tara running a house efficiently on the day ISRO has an important launch. Rakesh’s entry and the confrontation scene when he’s offered Mars program is intriguing as well as entertaining. It also makes it clear that the film won’t get serious and that the entertainment quotient will be maintained. The rest of the team is introduced in a quick but interesting montage like sequences and it adds a lot to the film. The first half moves swiftly with no complaints. The second half is longer and the commencing portions are where the film drops. Also to see the team renovating their work station at a time when they are running against time is a bit too much. Thankfully the film soon picks up. The best is obviously reserved for the finale. There are a lot of obstacles faced by the team here and it makes the film even more gripping. The finale is applause-worthy
