Mission Mangal (2019)

R.Balki produces this film that is written and directed by Jagan Shakti. Mission Mangal as the name suggests is about “Mangalyaan” the path breaking Mars mission by ISRO that dumbfounded world at large because of its many “Firsts”.

I thought it was just another nonsense story and the animation would be just fine because it wasn’t from Disney, DreamWorks or such American big animation companies. But within five minutes, I realised that I was wrong. This animation is a remake version of the famous Cinderella story. But it’s really … Continue reading Cinderella and the Secret Prince (2018)
