Men are from mars and women are from Venus, the popular adage goes, but Mission Mangal appends that idea with the story of a space mission to Mars propelled predominately by female energy. The film is a fictionalized account of Mangalyaan, the ISRO mars program that was launched in the year 2013 and features headlining roles for the scientists, most of them women behind the ambitious endeavor. The mission was a moment of pride in more ways than one. Indian was the first country to crack a mars mission in its first attempt and at a budget of roughly 454 crore rupees, a fraction of the cost of other international space missions. Mangalyaan’s story, then, is ripe for the big screen. It is a blockbuster cliché, the underdogs who beat insurmountable odds. Created by the first-time director Jagan Shakti, Mission Mangal is helped along by the acting skills of Akshay Kumar but it is further elevated by smart filmmaking and a clutch of winning performances led by the excellent Vidya Balan.
The film needed a team that can generate an emotional effect on the audience and thus it was necessary to have talented actors in the cast. Keeping this feature in mind, Taapsee Pannu, Sonakshi Sinha, and Sharman Joshi joined the cast of the film. The journey of the multi starrer left behind many movies at the Indian Box Office in terms of its collection.
