Aakashvani is a screenplay that definitely needs serious rework in my opinion. Soaked in almost unbearable melodrama, the movie is exhausting even with a less than two hour long duration. With preaches and theatrical love in every frame, aakashvani is way too dramatic.
Aakash is the head of a construction firm and Vani is the head of a news channel. After marriage the relationship wasn’t working well as arguments and disagreements accumulated. The main focus of the film is on a particular day where Aakash decides to take a break from this routine quarrel. How Vani responds to it and what happens at the end is what the movie discussing.
The film starts off with the tag line oru kothuku kanda katha. Except for the opening short, there isn’t any mosquito perspective in this film. From the first scene itself, we can understand the level of drama in the writing with all those mind voice and flash back glimpses through the car windows. Then the usual drama of argument, female bitching etc. starts. The only interesting point is the half way mark where the disagreement reaches the peak. But with ridiculous ways of portraying a woman’s affection, we sort of laugh at the movie for its immaturity.
Vijay Babu at certain emotional sequences fails to be that caring husband. Kavya Madhavan sort of repeats her style of showing all those emotions. While Lalu Alex failed to get out of that drama zone with performance, Saiju Kuruppu and Sreejith Ravi delivered impressive performances. Lijo Jose Pellissery is definitely a promising actor.
Khais Millen who made an impressive short film Lipstick starts off the film with that mosquito short and managed to create an impression. But pretty soon after that one minute scene, the film fell in to that outdated treatment. The first half is just an extended version of what we saw in the trailer. As I mentioned above, the second half gimmicks looks too silly on screen and sensing that twist at the end was not at all a difficult thing. The cinematography is okay. While watching the movie the music doesn’t really work. Background score is way too excessive.
AakashVani doesn’t honestly try to give an importance to marital problems. The reasons of issues and justifications given to it look really indigestible. I really wish I could tell you that a particular part of the film impressed me.
