Oke Oka Jeevitham has been in the works for a long time. The film, starring Sharwanand, hit theaters today. Let’s see how it is.
Adi (Sharwanand), Sreenu (Vennela Kishore) and Chaitu (Priyadarshi) are three close friends who have their own problems. One fine day, they meet a scientist (Nasser) who promises to take them back in time so they can solve their childhood mistakes. Excited about this, they agree and travel back to 1998 through a time machine. Upon arrival, they meet their younger versions and begin to correct their mistakes. But the twist in the story comes when the younger versions of the three children use the same time machine and get to the future, leaving the adults behind. What will the three friends do now? How are the groups swapped in time? To know the answers, you need to watch the movie on the big screen.
Stories based on time machines have always been interesting. So it would be interesting to see how the makers would shape the plot in the past and present. But director Shree Karthik does an excellent job of blending the past and present stories and adding comedy with a good dose of emotion, which is a major highlight of the film.
Amala is making a comeback after a ten-year hiatus, and she is an excellent actress in the film. She plays Sharwa’s mother and brings tears to your eyes in many scenes. Her scenes with Sharwa are the mainstay of the film. Speaking of Sharwanand, we all know he’s a sane actor and boy does he go all out. His play in all emotional scenes will surely move you. He as a subdued person plays his character so well and is the mainstay of the film. The climax scene with Amala shows his acting skills.
Priyadarshi gets a good role and does well in his supporting role. Ritu Varma was also effective in her small but important role. One of the film’s greatest assets is its comedy, directed by Vennela Kishore. Without overdoing it, the ace comedian stays in character and gives an excellent performance. He elicits excellent laughs and keeps the audience engaged throughout the film.
The first half of the film is quite entertaining and presented in a funny way. Playing the role of a scientist, Nasser is great and brings a lot of depth to the process. The three child actors were excellent in their respective roles. Another big selling point of the film is the captivating narrative. Director Shree Karthik tells the film in such a way that there are thrills, suspense and also fun in many scenes.
The second half is full of emotional scenes. The way the movie ended very practically was so good to see. The logic is handled well when it comes to time travel and the aesthetic has been properly designed. Three Friends’ character arcs are neat and end on a neat note.
The movie has a slow pace and takes a while to get into its main story. Not that the scenes are bad, a bit more fast-paced script would have made things even better for the viewer.
The manner in which the three children behave in the present scenario is not portrayed appropriately. Things are presented in a simple way and more explanations should have been given in this episode.
The time travel concept was handled brilliantly. The VFX used, the time machine model and the production design are top notch. The camerawork shows the 90’s era effectively. The dialogues are emotional and so is the music by Jakes Bejoy. The editing could have been more crisp to make things better.
Coming to director Shree Karthik, he did a very good job with the film. His story is different and the conflict point he chooses for each of the friends looks impressive. The young director takes a lot of time to build up the plot, but it all comes to an end properly in the second half. Karthik’s grasp of emotion and comedy was impressive. He didn’t overdo it and made the film melodramatic. If you think the emotions will take over, keep the subtle comedy and thrills in your grip.
Overall, Oke Oka Jeevitham is a well-crafted sci-fi drama full of good comedy and reasonable emotion. The performance of the main actors, the interesting setting and the gripping narrative are big plus points. Aside from the slow pace, this movie has a strong content and will surely impress those who expect different stories told in an engaging and entertaining way. Do it.
