M.O.M. Mission Over Mars review: Mission Mangal lookalike is a survivor, encourages us not to give up on Chandrayaan-2

Ruchi Kaushal from Hindustan Times writes, "An inspiring moment lights the show up as ISA chief, played by Ashish Vidyarthi, distributes pictures of common people to motivate his team and remind them that it might be the government who finances India’s dreams but it is the people who vote them into power. Compare it to Mission Mangal or not, Mission Over Mars manages to survive on its own."

Mission Over Mars first impression: Mona Singh and Sakshi Tanwar deliver a feel-good show

Arushi Jain from Indian Express says, "In terms of performance, Tanwar and Singh live up to the standards they have set for themselves through their previous performances. They are flawless and keep you hooked to their story. Nidhi Singh and Palomi Ghosh show potential to match up to their seniors. Ashish Vidyarthi fits perfectly in the role of project director and other supporting cast add to the performance of the lead stars. In my opinion, you can definitely binge-watch this feel-good story of four women who are ready to go to any length to achieve their dreams."

Aayushi Sharma from ZEE5 says, "Does Mission Over Mars lack depth or not? Neither. It is an intense and inspiring web series shouldered strongly by brilliant acting. It is a glorious watch that engulfs you, engages you with help from stunning visual effects, cinematography, and design. As you sit in front of your screens, you too will feel the entertainment forces sending goosebumps across every fiber of your being."


Vishal Verma from GlamSham writes, "MISSION OVER MARS aka M.O.M in its initial first three episodes achieves in its mission to unfold the story of these magnificent four Indian women who helped ISRO launch India’s Mars Orbiter into space. It’s manipulated, filmy at times but without any doubt you'll want to stand up and cheer for these brave and beautiful women of India who gave a new adage of determination and talent winning over unfair and repressive system, gender discrimination, and politics. Powered by fantastic performances by Sakshi, Mona, Nidhi and Palomi these MOM’s are destined to hold relevance till we find life in Mars. With the world standing together in the honor and valor of our ISRO chief K Sivan, M.O.M could have not asked for a better time to remember India’s great space achievement."
