She said in a media interaction, “It was all in the writing and direction. Total: ₹ 114.39 cr. The Indian Express film critic Shubhra Gupta gave the film 2.5 stars in her review. She (her character Tara Shinde) is a feminist but she’s not an aggressive feminist.”

I remember Jagan (Shakti, the director) telling me that you’re not making a point and saying ‘I love my job’, he said, you say it just casually, ‘you know what I love my job and I know my daughter so don’t make me feel guilty.’ It is very matter of fact. She wrote, “The human interactions are the best part of the film. And it doesn’t help that the computer-graphics feel a tad tacky: after years of watching stunning space visuals in Hollywood films, the scenes here seem sub-par. #MissionMangal is trending very well on weekdays… Should comfortably cross ₹ 127 cr in *extended* Week 1… Will challenge *lifetime biz* of #Kesari in Week 2… Thu 29.16 cr, Fri 17.28 cr, Sat 23.58 cr, Sun 27.54 cr, Mon 8.91 cr, Tue 7.92 cr. But the clunkiness sort of fits too: our early space agers, Vikram Sarabhai and Abdul Kalam carried their instruments on the back of bullock-carts.”
She added, “Too much polish would maybe have been out of place, especially when you have a top-flight scientist conjure up the winning idea of using less fuel for the Mangal yaan by watching ‘pooris’ fluffing up even when the gas is switched off.”
Earlier, Vidya Balan had spoken about the feminist aspect of the film. I can’t take any credit for it. Taapsee Pannu, Nithya Menen, Kirti Kulhari, Sharman Joshi, HG Dattatreya, Vikram Gokhale and Sonakshi Sinha play pivotal roles in Mission Mangal. Five of the major characters in the film are women.
