Performance: Samutiraikani in the role of Chandram Master delivers superb performance and elevates the film with his performance. . The villagers give neat performance. The child artist Master Prashant who discovers the radio is superb. Vinay Varma in the role of Dora is impressive. Teja Kakumanu as Sambadu and Prashant as Gidda are fine. Rest of the cast perform accordingly.
Technical: The story of Aakashavaani is interesting. Music by Kala Bhairava is impressive. The camera department also does a good job in showcasing realistic visuals. The editing department should have taken care of the first half. The narration is slow and dull in the first half butVFX by Phani Vihari is good. The way the bonding between the radio and the villagers grows is interesting.
Analysis: Ashwin Gangaraju makes his directorial debut with this film Aakashavaani. Overall it has an interesting backdrop with good visuals.
