Gauri (Nitya Menon) is a journalist and she gets a last chance to prove herself. Anand (Satyadev) is a physician, who wants to make big in a village.

- Nithya Menen
- No emotional connection
- Dull narration
- Slow pace
Performance: Nithya Menen, as a daughter of a rich landlord, delivers superb performance. She looks cute on the screen. Satyadev in the role of a greedy doctor, does a good job. The lady who essayed the grandmother of Rahul Ramakrishna is impressive. Rahul Ramakrishna has provided some comic relief. Tanikella Bharani, Tulasi and others are ok..
Technical: The storyline of the film Skylab is unique. Background music by Prashanth R Vihari in well with visuals and carries forward the story. Cinematography work is breath-taking. The visuals and frames the movie has are good to eye. Editing is worst. Coming on the work of director Vishavak Khanderao, he takes way too much time to establish the various stories in the film.
Analysis: Though the story of Skylab is unique, but it ends as a painful watch.
