The time lag for comms is about 2.5 seconds only.
if the lander sped up in the end, instead of further slowing down, they know already.
Attitude control data must have been available till they lost comms, so they will know if it is tipping over.
The animation on the screen generates images based on the lander's attitude control data. It showed a tumble right before comms was lost.

Wasn't the orbiter supposed to fly by and take pictures of the lander?

Re: the hand gestures, my guess is they were debating if it went into a tumble or descended in the correct orientation. Also heard one lady scientist also say that we've lost RF, but doesn't mean that the rest of systems didn't perform.

2.1 km altitude was the last known normal performance, then comms was lost.

The communication seems to be working. They are waiting for comms to work. Even if the lander was partially damaged, it would be a success if we get a ping back

What causes loss of communications at 2.1 kilometers altitude?

Perhaps that's when lander started tumbling?

If it tumbles, its antenna won't face the orbiter or the earth.

Signal lost at 2.1km altitude. it's mostly a hard landing. Tough luck ISRO. Let's get it right next time. Modi just said courageous.

There should have been some onboard explosion when trying to switch to two engines. Otherwise, there's no reason for loss of Comms at that altitude. JMT.

If they were switching down from 4 engines to 2 engines, then one of them didn't switch off in time, and created an imbalance, causing loss of attitude stability most likely
I am speculating only.

Looked like the lander was descending vertically for quiet some time before it deviated sharply from the nominal trajectory.... looking bad.. looking like a tumble.

ISRO will do proper cause n effect analysis from available data that's for sure. They will scan and get pictures of landing site from orbiter in few hours.
