Story: Adi (Sharwanand) is a singer who is gifted but lacks in confidence. Seenu (Vennela Kishore) is a real estate broker with his own professional issues while Chaitu (Priyadarshi) rejects every marriage proposal looking for the perfect girl. These three childhood friends who come across a quantum physicist Paul (Nasser), who tells them that time travel is the solution for their problems. Does the trio will be able to find the solution to their problems through that or not?

Analysis: First half starts with a slight suspense and after that the narration focuses on humor. The three characters and their situations are dealt with mix of humor and emotions. Scenes after the trio go back to their past were beautifully designed, the fun parts and emotions handled very effectively.

After the terrific interval twist, the second half starts on a good note but meanders a bit here and there. But the last 20 minutes filled with high emotions form the main crux of the movie work well.

Sharwanand was excellent in his role. Amala was superb. Vennela Kishore was too good and excels in am emotional scene. Priyadarshi and Ritu Varma too did well. Nazar and others were alright.

Music was decent with Amma song being the best song. Camera and art work were decent.

What worked for the movie:

  • Interesting plot 
  • Vennela Kishore and his childhood self scenes are hilarious
  • Amma Song
  • Emotional moments towards climax 
  • Performances

What did not worked for the movie:

  • Unexciting initial 20 minutes 
  • Clumsy portions in second half 
  • Few logical flaws

Final Note: Though it has it's share of flaws, Oke Oka Jeevitham works because of the earnestness with which they attempt to narrate a son and mother story  which works quite well.
