Antariksham - Technical Team
Antariksham banks big on special effects and boy did the team deliver. The director, Sankalp Reddy gets the best-possible output in this department. However, he should have concentrated more on the core plot rather than the visual grandeur. Nevertheless, he made a decent attempt. Music and background score are Marvelous. The space thriller vibe has been carried well in the second half. Camera works are really good and give an authentic feel to the viewers. A lot of effort has been put into the art department and they succeed big time. They have picked all the right physical properties to give a realistic setup to the satellite.
Antariksham - Analysis
The entire team of Antariksham has put in a lot of hard work and that is very much evident on the big screen. The film does not have any commercial elements but because of the sheer imagination of the director, this film will go down as a good attempt in Tollywood. Overall, 'Antariksham' is a praise-worthy attempt. It will be an enriching experience for all those who hadn't seen space films made in the Hollywood so far.
