The Indian Express
Mission Mangal movie ratings: Two and a half stars
Mission Mangal movie review: It leaves a smile on the face. And you do feel a swell of pride as the ‘yaan’ comes into view and settles successfully in orbit. Despite the over-arching presence of the latter-day Mr India, ‘sab mangal hai’.
Rating: 3 Stars (out of 5)
This isn’t Mission Magnificent. But it isn’t Mission Mangled either. Mission Mangal is watchable, if not always exhilarating, if you can get over its excesses.
Times Now: Mission Mangal is a well-written film, brilliantly written in fact, for a movie based on real life incidents. There is not one cast member who does not contribute to the plot of the film. Every character has been given an equal screen space and well-deservedly. It makes you want to stand and applaud in the theatre towards the end. (4*/5*)
Bollywoodlife: Mission Mangal has a lot going for it especially in terms of narrative, dialogues and performances. It captures the spirit of scientists in a relatable light-hearted manner. Vidya Balan again proves why she is an acting powerhouse. It is a decent watch on Independence Day to celebrate the spirit of India space team and it’s passion. (3*/5*)
Rating – 2/5
Mission Mangal — starring Akshay Kumar (one of our least hidden figures) and a shiny tinfoil version of ISRO that often looks like a lavish backdrop to a Rajinikanth song — we also applaud a Prime Minister who had very little to do with supporting the original mission. The message is clear: We can create our own cartoons, thank you very much. Make in India.
