Antariksham Movie Review

Antariksham Movie Review

Release Date: Friday 21st December 2018

Cast: Varun Tej, Aditi Rao Hydari, Lavanya Tripathi, Satya Dev, Srinivas Avasarala, Rahman and others


Indian satellite Mihira faces a technical failure and this will lead to mayhem in global satellite system. Riya (Aditi) and Mohan (Avasarala) tell their space centers boss (Rehman) that only Dev (Varun) can rectify this problem.

Trouble is that Dev has been stopped working for the center after a failed mission five years ago.

How Riya convinces him and at what length Dev go to restore pride of Indian space scientists forms rest of the story.


Sankalp Reddy made Ghazi The Attack, a film in the genre of submarine, in a most convincing manner with patriotic elements and that won him National Award.

While his first film went underwater, his second film Antariksham moves to space. Sankalp Reddy doesnt waste time and sets the tone of the movie in the very first scenes.

He introduces the main problem at the very beginning  Indian space center has to tackle the issue of the failed satellite Mihira that would bring bad reputation to the Indian space organisation. Who will solve it Obviously, the protagonist

The director has employed classic Hollywood tricks to pen the characterisation of Varun Tej. He is the guy who is retired from the work due to an incident and he alone can solve the problem. This is typical Hollywood hero characterisation. To make the narration interesting, the director has given Varun Tej a small love story and a flash back. 

The first half goes back and forth with Varun Tejs personal story and the Space Centers problem. The main mission to the space comes before the interval.

Later the film focuses on the mission and rest of the movie is set in space. And it goes on expected lines, not so absorbing moments.

The director has stuck to the genre, without deviating from the main plot, and has also added National flags all over, but the sequences dont arouse the same patriotic feel that Ghazi had achieved. The narration is not arresting either. It is simple and plain. 

The film also takes too much of cinematic liberty in terms of space travel. Varun changing the course of space mission midway to moon defies the logic. He does as if it is a sharing auto (a dialogue in the film).

Despite some flaws, the movie is a right attempt. For the first time we are seeing a space thriller in Telugu and within tight budget the director has achieved the right production design required for this genre.

All in all, Antariksham can be termed as a good attempt in the science fiction genre. A better screenplay would have made wonders. A lot was expected from the director but he offers just an okay movie.
