As the whole nation waits for the soft landing of the lander Vikram on the south pole of the lunar surface, the first attempted by any country, here is a list of few space research movies that you can binge-watch:
The movie Tik Tik Tik centres around the event of an asteroid strikes the neighbourhood of Chennai, Ennore. Soon, scientists predict that another asteroid with an estimated size of 60 square kilometres is going to hit another place. Eventually, RAW decides to send M. Vasudevan (Jayam Ravi), a trained magician and escape artist, along with his team and a team of scientists to get a hold of a missile in a space centre. This plot leads to a happy ending, destroying the asteroid.
After the failure of GSLV-F06 on 25 December 2010, due to a small mistake by Project Director Tara Shinde, Rakesh Dhawan, a fellow scientist working with her, takes the blame on her. The MoM (Mars Orbiter Mission) is regarded as an impossible mission by his co-workers due to its aim of reaching Mars with its tight budget. Eventually, the MoM satellite is finally launched on PSLV on 5 November 2013, and is named Mangalyaan and is successfully inserted into Earth's orbit.
This 2018 space adventure movie revolves around a satellite moving into the darker side of moon, and the crisis that one of the Indian satellites, Mihira has lost connection with the Space Station and is losing its speed. The system codes to make any repairs are known only to Dev (Varun Tej) - a passionate scientist at the station. Dev had quit the Space station five years ago - and this story forms a flashback.
After landing on the Moon, the astronaut Anand and his associate Bhagu face off against many warriors and monsters from another planet. Chand Par Chadayee was directed by T. P. Sundaram, who also produced it under Cauvery Productions. A one of its kind experiment in the hindi film industry, a movie like this was never seen before and was appreciated all across the country.
We feel these movies can set the mood perfectly for ISRO's Chandrayaan 2 mission. Do you have more such suggestions? Let us know in the comments section below!
