Mission Mangal has showcased the role that women had to play in the mission’s success.
However, while it’s true that women had a lot of key contributions to Mangalyaan, the mission wasn’t as dominated by women as Mission Mangal’s trailer would have you believe. At the time of the launch, the control room had as many as 14 senior male scientists present and only 3 female scientists.
However, the movie has opened with some great reviews. According to the film critic Taran Adarsh, Mission Mangal is ‘one of the best films of 2019’. Devansh Sharma from the First Post writes, India should be proud of this inspiring film
John Abraham starrer Batla House that was released alongside Mission Mangal also witnessed a good opening at the box office with ₹13-15 crore.
Mangalyaan was not as female centric as Mission Mangal would have you believe
