Performance: Once again Sharwanand gives superb performance. It’s not just his performance skills and expressions, his way of dialogue delivery adds up to the emotion in the various scenes. Ritu Varma, as a caring girlfriend, looks cute on the screen. Amala Akkineni does a great job in her comeback movie. The mother and son bond explores the depth of the story. There is no dearth of humour when you have ace comedians and actors Vennela Kishore and Priyadarshi. The childhood characters, plays by Jay Adithya as younger Adi, Hitesh as younger Chaitu and Nithyaraj as younger Seenu, do a fabulous job. Rest of the cast of Oke Oka Jeevitham perform accordingly.

Shree Karthick has carefully balanced the noble storyline and commercial image of Sharwanand gives a rightly blended and engaging movie. The director handled the story and scenes very well. The music composed by Jakes Bejoy is good and the lyrics of the song deserve applause. Dialogues are meaningful and it adds impact to scenes. The cinematography work by Sujith Sarang are fantastic and the movie has some fantastic visuals. The cinematographer captures the colorful visuals very well, which is a visual treat. The art direction by N Satheesh Kumar, stunts by Sudesh Kumar and styling by Pallavi Singh are good.
Analysis: The first half of Oke Oka Jeevitham is entertaining and engaging with a brilliant interval twist, the second half should be crispier with the mother-son sentiment.
