The first slide of Mission Mars is a little intimidating, in which the film is based on the Mars mission campaign, but the imagination has been resorted to for entertainment. Now when this thin lane becomes a highway under the guise of entertainment, it cannot be said.
The film Mission Mangal comes on the highway of entertainment very quickly and it is immediately understood that the focus of the writer and director is to entertain the audience and Mission Mangal is just a backdrop which is just added. It is sad that India’s historical success in sending a vehicle to Mars has been presented in a very ‘filmy’ manner.
Mangalyaan was launched in November 2013 and in less than a year, this light satellite made history by entering the orbit of Mars. The US, China and Russia spent crores of rupees on these projects, but India did this for only seven rupees per kilometer, and that too in the first attempt.
The film must be made on this historical success, but the writer and director should have enough respect to do justice to the subject. If this is not the case, only a film like ‘Mission Mangal’ will emerge.
A mission of Rakesh Dhawan (Akshay Kumar) fails due to Tara Shinde (Vidya Balan). He gets transferred to the Mars department because there is no one in this department. Everyone believes that it is impossible to reach Mars. Tara also comes to Rakesh’s department.
Rakesh convinces ISRO director for mission mars. Very little budget is available. B-grade teams are awarded. A villain is erected in front. X The work of NASA scientist Rupert Desai (Dalip Tahil) is to always doubt the ability of these underdogs. Great success has been shown around this story.
Actually director Jagan Shakti and his team got nervous that the subject is a bit crooked. Somewhere rocket science is not made for the audience. So entertainment should be added to the film, but instead of adding salt to the flour, they added flour to the salt.
If an electronic item does not work properly in normal life, then we unscientific people restart it and this trick works many times, but if the Mars sent vehicle is not sending the signal, then the scientific system shown in the film is off If we turn it on and everything goes well, then the head can be beaten. It tarnishes the reputation of those hardworking scientists that they too work in such unscientific ways.
Some unnecessary things have also been added to increase the length of the film. For example, a Muslim does not give a girl a house for rent. This does not fit in the film.
Women’s empowerment also does not mean that women are shown fighting or cheating like male heroes. In one scene in the film, Sonakshi Sinha beats the goons in the train and Akshay Kumar keeps watching. Now what do these kinds of scenes mean?
Women had a big hand behind the success of this mission, but here women are presented in a ‘typical’ way and this thing does not emerge.
Sharman Joshi’s character is ridiculous. The scientist working on the Mars mission is afraid of his horoscope Mars. How can such a superstitious be a scientist?
The way in which the Mars orbit will reach Mars from the earth is easily explained and it can be appreciated that even a viewer with a figure of thirty-six from science can understand this.
Despite the weak script, director Jagan Shakti has done his job properly. He has kept the audience connected to the film. He has filmed some scenes well as Vidya tries to awaken the scientists inside her companions. In the film’s climax, he has created a lot of thrill.
Akshay Kumar’s courage should be praised that despite being a big star, he did the movie ‘Mission Mangal’ in which the heroines were given more prominence. Although they seem less scientific and more renewable.
Vidya Balan’s performance as a woman with dual responsibilities at home and office is superb. In the crowd of artists, their brightness is seen differently.
Taapsee Pannu and Kirti Kulhari did not get as much talent in the film. Sonakshi Sinha and Sharman Joshi have done their job properly. Dalip Tahil is engaged in caricature and his fault is less and more of the director.
Overall, ‘Mission Mars’ is not all Mars.
