Critic Reviews for Mission Mangal
Jagan Shakti's exhilaratingly schmaltzy fact-based drama about India's epochal launch of a Mars-bound satellite is a rousing crowd-pleaser.
The film's tech talk is dumbed down to a laughable degree, with metaphors ranging from cooking to cricket supplanting anything approaching actual rocket science.
Some merit can be awarded for technical competency and a game supporting cast but, otherwise, Mission Mangal is the most simplistically boring trip to Mars one could take.
It's hard to make intelligence look entertaining. But it's harder to make intelligence look stupid. And yet, this is exactly what Mission Mangal manages to do.
Ultimately it's a consummate Vidya Balan who rises above everything else and, thankfully, makes Mission Mangal all about a good-hearted matriarch instead of a patronising patriarch.
