Okka Kshnam Review& Rating
Jeevan (Sirish) starts following Srinivas (Srinivas Avasarala) and Swathi (Seerat Kapoor) at the request of his girlfriend Jyotsna (Surabhi). In the process, he comes across some facts that will change his life upside down. What is the truth? Why is he following them? What happens in the end forms the rest of the story of the movie.
Allu Sirish is seen in the role of Jeevan. The role is a bit different from what Sirish has played in the past. The young hero showed signs of improvement with the performance and impressed with his screen presence. The film stars Surabhi in the key female lead part. She is good with looks as well as the performance. She is a perfect choice for the heroine role and the lead actors' chemistry worked out well too. Srinivas Avasarala is impressive in the role he played and Seerat Kapoor is also nice as Swathi. The rest of the actors played the limited roles well and impressed one and all! All the others made their presence felt.
The camera work in the movie was handled by Sam K Naidu. His experience has helped the film to attain a different tone. The cinematography is very good in the film. The editing by Chota K Prasad is good and he is impressed with his sharp story-telling through cuts. The artwork is nice in the movie. The production design is excellent. Mani Sharma scored an average audio album but he elevated the movie well with the background score. The graphics work is good and the dialogues by Abburi Ravi are nice.
The film Okka Kshanam is interesting in many ways! The film has got an interesting storyline while the first half focuses on the characters and sets an interesting premise for the second half. The interval bang has come out well too. Though the film is tipped to be a thriller, it has got all kind of elements in the movie which will entertain the viewers. The minus point of the film is that the pace is slow and the director takes time to involve us in the story of the movie.
There are a lot of engaging episodes in the film which reveals the talent of VI Anand. The parallel life concept is very new for us and the director was successful in explaining it to us. With some neat performances and decent execution, the film impresses.
