Films are more focused on entertainment, dance and song routines, rom-com, and high-intensity action. We hardly see a complete science fiction or space movie that may provide insight into the realm of stars, moons, and space. Of course, there are a few movies that cover some important issues and deliver social messages.

Here are 5 space movies that you can watch with your kids on OTT platforms:

1. The Rocketry: The Nambi Effect

Nambi Narayan, a scientist in the Indian Space Research Organization, was accused of espionage but eventually cleared in this biographical play directed, produced, and written by R. Madhavan.
