Celebrating the biggest victories of India in the field of space research, ALTBalaji and ZEE5 have just launched their most ambitious web-series Mission Over Mars (M-O-M): The women behind Mission Mangal. The web-series is a fictional adaptation of real-life heroes at ISRO who worked on Mangalyaan and played pivotal roles in accomplishing the mission against all odds.
The web-series charts out the journey of M-O-M from inception to execution and will be a moving story of the faith, grit and determination of four (woman) scientists who aid ISA (Indian Space Agency) to overcome insurmountable technical and financial challenges as well as time pressures to mount the successful mission over mars.
The show stars impressive names like Sakshi Tanwar, Mona Singh, Nidhi Singh, Palomi Ghosh in lead roles, along with veteran actors Ashish Vidyarthi and Mohan Joshi in prominent roles. Directed by ‘The Test Case’ fame director, Vinay Waikul, four episodes of this co-created web-series are streaming now on ALTBalaji and ZEE5 and the remaining four will be available on the app on September 12.
Commenting on the launch of the web-series, Sakshi Tanwar said, “During our research phase, we were shown an impressive documentary on this mission and we got a glimpse of the narrative and what all went into making it a success. Through this web-series, we not only tried to celebrate the tremendous achievement of our nation but also the sheer hard work, grit, and determination of these wonderful women scientists.”
