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”.

Comali (2019)

COMALI is produced by Vels Film International and is written and directed by Pradeep Ranganathan. The film got its pre release hype because of the controversy surrounding Rajinikanth. The premise of Comali is a little interesting; forget the inspirations from films abroad or the countless reference to it in many many movies here.

A1 (2019)

Producer S. Raj Narayanan of CircleBox Entertainment has produced this movie that is written and directed by Johnson K. Okay, Tamil cinema of late has tsken “comedy” to plunging depths.
