Yes, India sent a successful probe to Mars

Add one more movie to Friday's opening schedule. And it's one of a series of Hindi-language that have played at AMC River Park Square recently:

"Mission Mangal": Translated as "Mission Mars," this Indian-made drama tells the story of the engineers who helped launch that country's Mars orbiter in 2013.

From the Times of India: "Moments of heightened drama in the screenplay are tailor-made to please the audience, especially those who don't have a knack for theories, equations and numbers."

We've had several space-flight stories featuring U.S. successes in recent years. It's time to share the glory with other countries.
