Mission Mangal (2019)
(Released: Aug 15, 2019)
Based on the 'Mars Orbiter Mission' or Mangalyaan, the story starts with a failed mission because of which Rakesh Dhawan (Akshay Kumar) gets transferred to Mars' department. There are no people in this department because they think achieving Mars is impossible, hence it's an isolated dusty room with just a Cat in it. Tara joins Rakesh for Mission Mars as she blames herself for the failure of last mission.
Head of all the flagship missions gets changed to Rupert Desai (Dalip Tahil), an ex-NASA scientist, questioning everything done by Rakesh. Somehow, Tara convinces ISRO'S director to back Rakesh for Mar's mission, and they build a team of underdogs (because so new). Everyone knows the mission was accomplished, but the rest of the story depicts how these underdogs achieve the impossible.
