Check out the Mission Mangal Trailer.
The trailer begins with Akshay Kumar’s voiceover, “There is no science without experiment.” The 2 minute and 52 second trailer shows the determination of scientists from different backgrounds, who battle all odds to launch India’s Mars Orbiter Mission. The trailer video introduces each of the characters as they demonstrate their never-give-up attitude while encountering personal and professional challenges on their way to the mission. Akshay Kumar, playing the lead character is wonderfully supported by the stellar women cast comprising of Vidya Balan, Sonakshi Sinha, Kirti Kulhari, Nithya Menon and Taapsee Pannu each of whom has their own story to tell, as they work in a team to achieve what was regarded as an impossible feat.
There is a line in the trailer that says “The sky is not the limit”, and indeed, the scientists refuse to lose hope thanks to Akshay Kumar’s positive cheer and determination and succeed in their mission. Along the way, the team worries about whether they have the finances and experience for it and have to face constant discouraging comments from seniors. The trailer ends with Akshay Kumar saying proudly, “Poori duniya se kaho, copy that!” The trailer concludes with the signature tune of Vande Mantram.
Akshay Kumar took to twitter to announce the release of the trailer, “Ye sirf ek kahaani nahi balki ek misaal hai uss namumkin sapne ki jise mumkin kiya India ne” (This is not a story but an inspirational tale of how India made an impossible dream come true) said the tweet.
Mission Mangal is the incredible, true story of a scientist, Rakesh Dhawan, played by Akshay Kumar and Tara Shinde played by Vidya Balan who lead a motley team of scientists who overcome their personal challenges and failures to serve as the brains behind one of the greatest missions in history: the launch of India’s first satellite to Mars, a stunning achievement that restored the nation’s confidence.
The film is a tale of ordinary people doing extraordinary things and inspiring generations to dream big and achieve the impossible.
The film has been directed by Jagan Shakti and produced by Fox Star Studios and is slated to release on India’s Independence Day on 15th of August 2019.
