Akaash Vani Movie Review

Ratings:1.5/5  Review By: Rajeev Masand  Site: CNN IBN (IBNLive)
Like his earlier movie Pyaar Ka Punchnama, director Luv Ranjan’s Akaash Vani is a promising but ultimately inconsistent film that starts out at one place, but ends up at quite another. This long, rambling love story makes an important point about marriage, and about parents shoving their decisions down their children’s throats to stay within societal norms. It even touches fleetingly upon the issue of marital rape. But it’s a pity these thoughts get somewhere lost in this convoluted mess of a film.I’m going with one-and-a-half out of five for director Luv Ranjan’s Akaash Vani. It’s a good cure for insomnia. Queue up for a ticket, those of you having trouble sleeping.

Like PYAAR KA PUNCHNAMA, AKAASHVANI also has a bond with realism. It's about the present times. It communicates the contemporary lingo. Yet, it has the old world charisma that still makes you go weak in your knees. It has shades of everything, from fidelity and commitment to resentment and mistrust to anguish and betrayal. Handled most efficiently, with several authoritative moments, AKAASHVANI is, without doubt, a delicate love story that triumphs. With PYAAR KA PUNCHNAMA, Luv Ranjan demonstrated he's a commendable storyteller. With AKAASHVANI, he only seals it furthermore! On the whole, AKAASHVANI appeals for the characters that Luv Ranjan has created as well as the buoyancy and gusto with which the principal actors bring alive the characters on screen. The movie contains just the right blend of sparkle and spice and is definitely worthy of a watch. Go for it!

Given the situation of women in the country, the film rightly touches upon topics like psychological, s**ual harassment post marriage. The characters, issues are realistic and sensible; except for the multiple irrelevant songs and scenes that drag the movie endlessly. Length is a major flaw. Akaash Vani makes women realize that it's more important to be happy and respected than being considered as righteous. It works strongly as social drama than a love story.

Ratings:4/5  Review By: IANS  Site: NDTV
Though there are patches of aridity in the relationship (what was Akaash doing while Vani was suffering in malfunctional domesticity?), this is a very good film about a bad marriage, or what havoc a wrong decision about one's life can create. Suffused in contemplative silences and deriving its dramatic energy from the age-old debate on arranged versus love marriages, Akaash Vani is thoughtful and absorbing, not prone to tripping over with nervous anxiety and excessive energy to hold our attention.

The film stands out in its make-believe moments. It makes you want to fall in love yet again, without really making a great impact on the mind – blame the tried and tested climax for that. But watch it for Nushrat and Kartik. The duo deserves an extra star for their performance. Three out of five from me for ‘Akaash Vani’.

This is what makes Akaash Vani engrossing. There are countless young couples in love not knowing how to break the news to their parents and there are countless parents who think only they know which boy is best for their daughter. Both are right in their own thinking. A father always wants his daughter to be comfortable. A daughter on the other hand, at most times, is already in love when proposal day comes. And that is what puts most in a Catch-22 situation. The music is young and peppy, the cinematography of the hill stations breathtaking. If you are willing to pardon the initial hiccups, AV is enjoyable. Do tune in to Akaash Vani.

Ratings:2.5/5  Review By: Roshni Devi  Site: Koimoi

What’s Good: The fuzzy and the feel good romance is bound to soothe your soul.What’s Bad: A rather clichéd and already seen story which drags long enough to test your patience. Loo break: Immediately post-interval. You almost wish the interval hadn’t ended. And if you are a free spirited woman, I strongly recommend you to carry an analgesic. Watch or Not?: If Sleepless in Seattle is the kind of film that wrenches your heart, Akash Vani is worth a shot!

Akaash Vani is not so much about romance as it is about understanding what drives decisions that people make. The film could have done with a more crisp narrative. At a near two-and-half hour runtime, you wish the tale was cut short by at least an hour. What works for the film, though, is the cast.

  1. taran chutia adarsh comes first again

  2. A nice film. I liked it. If it didnt have Race 2 as competitor, the film would have attract many. Put your money on this, it's worth watching

  4. even m goin for this movie be4 race 2.. vl give review soon

  5. Probably for the first time, I completely disagree with Rajeev Masand. Yes, the movie might not appeal to audience of all age groups, youngsters will relate to it instantly. The director has shown something which today is the reality in a lot many 20 somethings' lives, and has executed the thought remarkably. Kudos Luv Ranjan. You can do better than that Rajeev. Didn't expect such a review from you.

  6. I am really in my best of doubts if luv ranjan's AKAASH VANI is a curious case of unintentionally bad writing or a well-planned mashup of annoying screenplays of old times. Where in first half, it looks familier and in fact identical to many college romance flicks/family dramas in every other scenes or subplots...in the second half, all of sudden it decides to sink & soak you in the terrifying social issue of marital rape.

    No second thoughts that when it comes, it comes with a bang as the only high-point, movie has but leave that one particular part, and its so heartless-so disconnected, it starts growing on you as a forced comical relief, provided you surrender yourself to it in great desperation.

    Besides, it is also dead bore and unbearably lengthy, so be ready with your recliner! You might want to get some rest from an easy sleep. Result? A film that could have been a hard-hitting meaningful social effort to create ripples and talks, it actually wastes the opportunity to be only satisfied with being an avarage love-story with a short-term gimmickie twist in the tale. DISAPPOINTING IN TOTAL ! (2/5)

    1. sorry bro.. bt suddenly these days ur reviews n ratings r more like according ur own taste of movies than real analysis of story n direction.. movie has a nice message which would have been well told if it was a little short n crisp.. locations r beautifully pictured.. story makes u emote love,irritation,anger,laugh.. it might not b a perfect screenplay but the movie is definately far better than u r talking about.. only coz it has no big names u cant say its depressing.. actors hav done fab job.. in a decade of remakes its an honest n brave effort.. only coz u wasted on recliner n pop corn dsnt mean movie sud only show u dances n romances...

    2. @Batman: Nothing wrong in Mr. Gaurav Rai review.

    3. i liked it. second half was excellent... we al l frnds liked it.. Gaurav plzzz post correct reviewz..

  7. The movie seemed a romantic ccomedy frm the trailore.but it comes out to be different.

  8. this movie is another well told story with a soulful message.. movie starts on a funny note n changes over the span of lovers life.. thought the movie seemd little dragging n repeatative in between still the climex recharges u. its a soulful movie fo lovers and shot beautifully in various pictorious locations. all actors have done pefect job..it makes u laught,it makes u cry.. it makes u angry.. it makes u puky.. it has a story to say.. tough people clueless about love or too narrow minded about sex or wanting for fun joy n sex comedy may find this movie confusing.. those in love will surely get a message. its not a comedy movie.. its a serious intense love story... i will suggest u must watch once just to learn to respect love marriages.. i give it 3/5 for the hard work on story n dialoges. go for it..

  9. This movie brings tears to my eyes every time I see it... Seen it 5 times already... God bless Luv Ranjan for a lovely story!
