Chandrayaan series space missions of ISRO have been more dramatic than any other Indian space missions. Lunar landing has been big subject of interest for movies from a long time. Apollo missions where man controlled spacecrafts have been sent to Moon have become highly popular. Chandrayaan has created enough drama for someone to announce a biopic for sure. Mangalyaan has prompted Akshay Kumar to make Mission Mangal. Now, someone might take subject matter of Chandrayaan-2 failure and Chandrayaan-3 success for Chandrayaan films.
Apollo missions have seen films like Apollo 13, Apollo 18, First Man, Chasing the Moon from Hollywood. These films have been concentrated on first Man controlled spacecraft landing on Moon and first Human steps on Moon. Chandrayaan has enough dramatic material like being given less than Interstellar movie budget and Chandrayaan-2 failure. ISRO director K. Sivan has broke down in the arms of Prime Minister Narendra Modi after the failure. This visual can spike some dramatic interest with someone playing his character guiding from the shadows. Russia planning a secret mission to land on South Pole, can also spike conspiracy theory in Chandrayaan film.
A scientist who has been ignored and forgotten can make a strong comeback with Chandrayaan success. A man who spites government and human kind could learn lessons of collective wisdom and trust resulting in great successes. There are endless possiblities for Chandrayaan to become a film subject in coming days. Surely, someone could be cooking up a story looking at more than 7 Million people watching ISRO channel live telecast of landing on YouTube and it creating headlines. The video has crossed 10 Million views already and surely, it will cross more. While documentaries are mandatory, we have to wait and see, how many films will be announced in coming weeks on Chandrayaan!
Chandrayaan-3 makes India fourth country to land on Moon
