Every Indian should watch the movie ‘Mission Mangal’ at least once for understanding how our space scientist works hard.
Akshay has done more than 150 films in his career, however, this film was more interesting for him. Yet, Mission Mangal is that the film he’s the foremost happy with. The actor admitted this during the trailer launch of the film ‘Mission Mangal’.
The film ‘Mission Mangal’ tells the tale of how India made commendable achievements in space with the Mars Orbiter Mission. Jagan Shakti’s ‘Mission Mangal’ can bring forth the country’s 1st interplanetary mission.
According to a report in Indian Express, Akshay said at the launch, “We didn’t have that much knowledge about Mars Orbiter Mission before we started working on the film. But slowly we came to know a lot, and it is because of director Jagan Shakti. In addition, ‘Mangalyaan’ cost solely Rs 450 crore whereas NASA spent over Rs 6000 crore for American maven orbiter. But My film 2.0 had a budget of 500 crores and this was less than that, so we are so proud.”

It was a successful space mission created by very few scientists, including women scientists. There were more women scientists in this campaign. Scientists in ISRO had to face a lot of problems to make ‘Mangalyaan’. There was no country that managed to reach Tuesday on its first attempt. As a result, in view of India’s financial situation, it was impossible for ISRO to make a provision of Rs.450 Corer. And even with that much effort, if the first attempt did not succeed, there would be a lot of financial loss. However, despite this situation, our experienced Indian scientists made the Mangalyaan campaign a successful first day by night.
ISRO’s Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM), which was also called Mangalyaan, was launched in 2013. Successfully executing a Mars mission in its first attempt, this mission marked India’s first interplanetary expedition. It made ISRO the fourth space agency to reach Mars, after Roscosmos, NASA, and the European Space Agency while also being the first Asian nation to reach Martian orbit. In 2014, China referred to India’s successful mission as the “Pride of Asia”.Recreating this landmark moment in India’s history on the big screen, Mission Mangal will tell the story from the perspective of the scientists that worked on the project, including the exemplary women behind the mission.

On 23 November 2008, the first public acknowledgment of an unmanned mission to Mars was announced by then-ISRO chairman G.Madhavan Nair. The MOM mission(mission ‘Magalyaan’) concept began with a feasibility study in 2010 by the Indian Institute of Space Science and Technology after the launch of lunar satellite Chandrayaan-1 in 2008. Prime Minister Manmohan Singh approved the project on 3 August 2012, after the Indian Space Research Organisation completed ₹125 crore(US$18 million) of required studies for the orbiter. The total project cost may be up to ₹454 crore (US$66 million).
The satellite prices ₹153 crore (US$22 million) and also the rest of the budget has been attributed to ground stations and relay upgrades which will be used for different ISRO projects. ISRO plans to develop and launch a follow-up mission known as Mars Orbiter Mission two (MOM-2 or Mangalyaan-2) with a bigger scientific payload to Mars in 2024.
The orbiter can use aerobraking to reduce the celestial point of its initial orbit and reach an altitude a lot of appropriate for scientific observation. The space agency had planned the launch on 28 October 2013 but was postponed to 5 November following the delay in ISRO’s spacecraft tracking ships to take up pre-determined positions due to poor weather in the Pacific Ocean.
The world was amazed by India’s efforts to send its first satellite to Mars. The Mars Orbiter Mission probe lifted-off from the first LaunchPad at Satish Dhawan Space Centre (Sriharikota range SHAR), Andhra Pradesh, using a Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) rocket C25 at 09:08 UTC on 5 November 2013.
The launch window was roughly twenty days long and began on 28 October 2013. The MOM probe spent a few months in Earth orbit, where it made a series of seven apogee-raising orbital maneuvers before trans-Mars injection on 30 November 2013 (UTC). After a 298-day transit to Mars, it absolutely was inserted into Mars orbit on 24 September 2014.
Cost to build ‘Mangalyaan’ :
At that time the total cost of this project ‘Mangalyaan’ was approximately 450 crore (US$ 73 million). The low value of the mission was ascribed by K.Radhakrishanan was the chairman of the ISRO who handled various factors, including a ‘modular approach’, some ground tests and long (18-20hours per day) working days for the scientist. BBC’s Jonathan Amos mentioned lower worker costs, home-grown technologies, simpler design, and a significantly less complicated payload than NASA’s MAVEN. This has been greatly appreciated all over the world.
Cost to make the film ‘Mission Mangal’ :
The film budget is approximately 500 Crore which is much more than the real Mangalyaan project done by ISRO space scientist. With the help of the movie ‘Mission Mangal’, the efforts of the scientists involved in the journey to Mangalyaan, their stubbornness, stress, failure, small moments of joy during the project were all elaborated in the film.
That is why Akshay Kumar is talking about the film and says that the film is ‘one country, one dream, and one movie’. All the actors have tried to actualize the film through their masterful acting. The film has an experienced star cast who loosely supported the story of scientists at the Indian space research Organisation who contributed to the Mars Orbiter Mission, which marked India’s first interplanetary expedition.

‘Mission Mangal’ film regarding ‘ordinary people commencing to try and do extraordinary things’, says director. He additionally wont to say that “My elder sister, Sujatha Krishna, is a scientist at ISRO. Even after her marriage, I would see her get up by around five in the morning to do household chores, cook food and then go to work. She was actually going for a launch.”
“I began writing the script more than three years ago while working as an associate director to R Balki on Pad Man. My sister helped me greatly in putting me in touch with the team.”
“There was a whole team behind the mission, and there was no single hero. It is a company that holds 17,000 employees and so many people chipped in. The core team had about six women and four men, apart from the chairperson.”
“The one thing that struck me in my interviews with the women was that they were so simple. If you saw them at a market or a bus stand, you wouldn’t guess that they were scientists. They have a very positive outlook. They were ordinary people setting out to do extraordinary things. Every time they hit a roadblock, they found a simpler solution.”
He additionally wont to say that “It could be a true story in terms of the technicalities. But the characters are completely fictionalized. The film is not based on one person’s life. That would not do justice to the team. We have added some elements here and there for entertainment purposes. Due to security reasons, we could not shoot at the ISRO premises, so we created our own sets.”
