Movie Verdict

It’s unusual for Telugu to feature any science fiction films. Aditya 369 is likely the only feature-length Telugu film to explore time travel. When we aren’t watching mainly thrillers, dramas, and romantic comedies, like Oke Oka Jeevitham, it’s nice to switch things up a bit. Despite its time-traveling premise, this film has everything it needs to appeal to a wide range of viewers. Nonetheless, the film’s narration has its shortcomings and may prove dull for some viewers. An appreciable effort was made to clarify time travel and fate in the film.

Sharwanand does a wonderful job portraying the adoring son Adi. In dramatic moments, he shines as an actor. After ‘Life Is Beautiful,’ Amala Akkineni returned to the Telugu film industry, and she excelled once again. Though Ritu Varma doesn’t have much of a screen presence, she nonetheless did a good job in the role. Both ‘Vennela’ Kishore and Priyadarshi were convincing in their roles and provided some welcome comic relief. Nasser is able to fully immerse himself in his roles, making his performances ring true. The supporting cast all did fine jobs that served the tale.

The film looks fine technically, so no complaints there. The songs Amma and Okate Kadha, both composed by Jakes Bejoy, were excellent. The score fits the film’s tone perfectly. Sujith Sarang does a decent job behind the camera, and some of the photos really pop. Some corners have to be cut to stay under budget, but that’s par for the course with time travel stories as special effects cost more money. The movie has decent production quality.

Shree Karthick, the director, has a very impressive approach to filmmaking. This director’s first effort did a great job with time travel, making the premise clear and easy to follow.

In sum, Oke Oka Jeevitham is a highly successful Telugu attempt at blending the concepts of time travel and emotional drama. Due to its fresh material, this film deserves to be seen in theatres.
