Mission Mangal, India’s historic Mars mission is now also a limited series. The first four episodes of Mission Over Mars — the unlicensed, fictional adaptation of ISRO’s Mars Orbiter Mission / Mangalyaan — Watch Mission Over Mars Full Episodes online streaming now on ALTBalaji and ZEE5. As with the film, it focuses on the four women scientists — played here by Sakshi Tanwar (Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii), Mona Singh (Jassi Jaissi Koi Nahin), Nidhi Singh (Permanent Roommates), and Palomi Ghosh (Typewriter) — at the centre of it all, though hopefully Mission Over Mars will treat its female characters better, won’t unnecessarily distort facts, and stay away from the jingoism, unlike Mission Mangal.
If you’re wondering why Mission Over Mars is unlicensed, that’s because the ISRO rights were snapped up by Mission Mangal.
