Mission Mangal (Mars Orbiter Mission) was a historic moment for India. Each and every citizen of the country felt proud at this MASSIVE achievement that showed India was in the space business in earnest and that it could achieve success and that too with its own scientific community without having to be dependent on foreign sources. Indeed, one of the biggest patriotic moments that this country has seen. The same has been translated into a movie with Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar in the starring role and here is why you should watch Mission Mangal movie - we list 5 reasons here:
1. The feel-good factor, stemming from the original ISRO mission, has now been translated into Mission Mangal movie with Akshay Kumar in leading role. Every citizen should watch it simply to get the sense of achievement as well as catch a brief glimpse of what it takes to make this achievement possible. Overall, Mission Mangal is a must-watch simply because of the mapped timeline that shows a country which is struggling to send a rocket to the moon, is looking to send a mission to Mars. Notably, Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM) was a big moment that showed India's growing stature as a space power and that too achieved with minimal funds accomplished in record time.
2. One should watch Mission Mangal because of its confidence building capabilities. It will show every person that they can achieve anything in the world no matter how tough the challenge. Best part that is highlighted is the ''can-do'' spirit. It is also a great booster for women's empowerment as it shows a bunch of women scientists fighting against the odds to ensure a historical mission is accomplished - at all costs.
3. While the task of Mission Mangal is shown in all seriousness, a humouros demeanour is maintained throughout the film. And yes, there is definitely a bit of jingoism in it, but nothing that went overboard. There is masala in Mission Mangal aplenty as well as melodrama. This puts in perspective for the viewer how a tough task was accomplished through imagination and verve. It also showed that there is no place for the faint-hearted when it comes to overcoming massive challenges.

4. Since almost every Indian film has to have a villain just to please the crowds and provide a punching bag, one has been created in Mission Mangal too. He comes in the form of a NASA-returned Indian expert at ISRO. This man's role was to keep finding fault with what 'desi' scientists were doing to create original equipment and methods to ensure there was no requirement for foreign aid.
5. Then of course, and this is for the die-hard fans, there is Akshay Kumar. He has millions of fans and they will see their hero burnish his image even more in Mission Mangal. He is also seen in new light. Instead of hogging the limelight, Akshay's role this time is sensitive too as he promotes the women team members in Mission Mangal.
