As expected, Akshay Kumar’s Mission Mangal trailer is a fascinating tale of hard work, fear, excitement and drama that preceded the launch of India’s first-ever space mission to planet Mars, ‘Mangalyaan’ or the ‘Mars Orbiter Mission’ on 15 November 2013 by Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO).
The trailer of director Jagan Shakti’s ‘Mission Mangal’ has been launched today. The 3-minute trailer packs all the drama, action, hard work, dedication and planning that went into launching India’s first-ever prestigious space launch to Mars.
Besides Akshay Kumar, the ambitious film also features Vidya Balan, Sonakshi Sinha, Nithya Mohan, Kirti Kulhari, Taapsee Pannu and Sharman Joshi in pivotal roles.
Akshay Kumar and Vidya Balan took to Twitter, to release the trailer of the much-anticipated 15 August 2019 release.
The trailer begins with an epic dialogue by the lead protagonist, scientist Rakesh Dhawan murmuring, ‘There is no science without experiment, ‘Experiment nahi karenge toh humein khudko scientist kehne ka koi adhikaar nahi hai’.
Then begins the challenging journey towards launching the first-ever Mars Space Orbiter by ISRO in India. The trailer unfolds to reveal the obstacles, failures and setbacks that the most talented team of scientists faced at ISRO.
The female leads are seen juggling between household duties, relationships and management of the crucial project at work.
From the looks of it, they look unbeatable, untamable and fierce in their operations. The story brings to light how the team successfully launched Mangalyaan on a shoe-string budget with innumerable constraints.
The 45-second teaser launched a couple of days ago received positive reviews and critical acclaim. The patriotic flavour in the film has managed to intrigue and excite the audience about the Akshay Kumar’s release.
The film is due to release on 15 August 2019, which will be Akshay’s fifth consecutive Independence Day release in the last 6 years.
It will face Box-Office clash with John Abraham’s ‘Batla House’ and hopefully Prabhaas’ ‘Saaho’, which may have been pushed to 30 August 2019.
