Opposite to Jyotsna’s apartment there lived a couple comprising of Swathi (Seerat Kapoor) and Srinivas (Avasalara Srinivas). They have a fight on regular basis.

On the other hand, Jeeva’s mother is also spying on her grown up son by using his phone and even she reveals this to her son.
From here movie takes Sci-fi genre turns, Jeeva starts investigating about the past of the couple. As he starts going digging deep, he starts finding similarities between their love story and the couple in the opposite apartment. This really worries Jyotsna as she starts expecting turmoil and commotion in her life too.

The events that have happened in the Srinivas’s and Swathi’s life are repeating in the Jo and Jeeva’s life. Jeeva supports this by driving some pattern, similarities and patterns in the lives of two couples.
Death of Swathi has really made worried Jeeva and Jo. Now what preventive action they take to save their love and lives forms the basis of the rest of the narration.
All characters in this film have certain personality problems, that have made this movie even more interesting.
Okka Kshanam Review – Character and performance
Allu Sirish has put on above average performance but nowhere it is close to excellence. He looked at ease, but intensity seems to be lacking in the emotional scenes. Surabhi did here role well but it is Swathi whose performance really stood out and audience can really connect what misery and trauma she is going through. Rest of the cast has done justice to their characters including comedians.
Direction and Technicalities
Direction of VI Anand is good but its not as good as his last thriller film. He knows the limits of his characters. His character has certain flaws in their personality and he doesn’t wish to project them overboard. The concept of the parallel life seems to be working. To make audience believe in the concept of parallel life or somebody living someone else’s life he present some historical facts and demonstrations. Overall, he kept the plot engaging for audience. The music and background score doesn’t help the pace of the movie.
Positives about the movie
Story keeps audience engaged.
Good for thrill lovers.
Negatives about the movie
Audience takes a while to get engaged.
First half is bit slow.
Intensity is lacking in the emotional scenes.
Movie is good in bits and patches.
