Four of these films have a message about nationalism. Akshay Kumar also proved that he wasn't insecure about working with five actresses when he did Mission Mangal. Film folks and audience is loving the film to bits. It is also a thunderous debut for Jagan Shakti. BollywoodLife in its review wrote, "Mission Mangal's prime strength lies in the crisp narrative and superlative performances. Vidya Balan is absolutely brilliant throughout the film whether she is talking of a power beyond science or when she tells her husband that as a mom she is equally clued in as she is as a scientist. Akshay Kumar delivers the good and has the best one-liners. Jagan Shakti has made a good solid debut as a director whether it is in extracting the emotions or creating the buildup for the climax. The background score of the film and some whistle worthy dialogues are extra highlights." Stay tuned to BL for more scoops and updates!
