I found this student produced documentary quite intriguing. I wanted to know what a GSLV Mark 3 is and discovered that it is a satellite. The storyline is about dreams coming to light. I found it interesting to learn about India launching a satellite so their internet service is up to par with the rest of the world. The storyline is pretty straightforward and sensible and the film is very easy to watch. I love the little girl who is clearly interested in aerospace. We see here playing with a toy rocket that her dad takes away from her. She imagines it as a real life rocket launching into space. There is deep joy when she rescues the rocket after her dad tosses it away and the next thing we see is an image of her as an astronaut! Who knows what dreams become reality. Kalpana Chawla was the first woman of Indian origin in space. This film appears to be the first of a series about Indians who have ventured into space or pursued a career in space. It's well produced with good visuals, audio and appropriate vocabulary. The location appears to be typical of a working class neighborhood in India. The footage of the space shuttle voyage from India draws the viewer in immediately. The location of the recycling pickup area is pivotal to the storyline. This has an inspiring message about realizing your dreams. I recommend it for ages 10 to 18, plus adults and give it 4 out of 5 stars. The dialogue is in Hindi with English sub-titles.

GSLV Mark3 is a two point of view narration told from a girl and also the ISRO team who wants to launch their GSLV mark 3 satellite into the space. There is a beautiful connect between girl and rocket which is about to launch.
