Antariksham is directed by Sankalp Reddy under Dharma Productions banner. Music by Prashanth Vihari
Dev(Varun Tej) a renowned space scientist living as a teacher after the failure of his space mission that made an irrecoverable loss to his personal life. After 5 years he is called by Indian Space Center when Mihira, an Indian satellite, is set to collide with other satellites and it may lead to the collapse of a global communication system. Only Dev can help. Riya (Aditi) convinces him to come back to the centre he agrees to take up mission secretly.
It is one of the experimental films it should be appreciable for this attempt to tell a space thriller. The movie focuses on two or three missions and a small romantic thread but it mainly focuses on the main plot without any interruption. the director added too much cinematic liberty to it. The final portions of Dev (Varun Tej) going on a mission of correcting the "dead" Vipryaan satellite and taking a slingshot using Moon are hard to believe. Director successfully achieved by holding interest with some tense moments in the climax. Music director Vihari background score is top notch.
Varun Tej performed well in the role astronaut. Aditi is good in her role. Rahman/Raghu is decent. Overall Anatariksham is the first space thriller in Tollywood, the film needs appreciation for choosing a different genre and great efforts.
