World’s first science documentary in Sanskrit to premiere in Chennai in August

The documentary “Yanam” can be described as special as it deals with space and is in Sanskrit, one of the ancient languages ​​of the world in which many works on astronomy have been written.

The eagerly awaited science documentary tells the story of India’s Mars Orbiter Mission or Mangalyaan which was successfully launched in 2013. It will be shown to select audiences in Chennai on 21st August.

The premiere will be launched in a ceremony by Indian Space Research Organisation’s chairman S Somanatha, which will be attended by former chairman of the space agency K Radhakrishnan and current Vikram Sarabhai space station, director S Unnikrishnan Nair.

The documentary has been directed by National Award winning filmmaker Vinod Mankara. He told that the film is based on Radhakrishnan’s book “My Odyssey: Memoirs of the Man Behind the Mangalyaan Mission”.

Speaking to PTI, Manakara said: “The objective of the documentary is to present the potential of ISRO and the capabilities of its scientists to the world. It tells how Indian scientists crossed all limits to make the complex Mars mission a huge success. Given. In the first attempt itself.”

The entire screenplay and dialogues of this 45-minute long ‘Yanam’ are in Sanskrit. Manakara said, most of the ancient texts on the subcontinent, including space and astronomy, were compiled in Sanskrit and so what’s wrong with using that language as a medium in a film that tells about the country’s Mars mission.

The film will be screened by scientists and in universities and colleges. There are also plans for a global premiere of the documentary.
