Jeeva (Allu Sirish) leads a happy life with his lover turned life partner Surabhi, until he gets to know his neighbor and their life. The couple witnesses bizarre coincidences and similarities between situations happening in their neighboring couple's (Avasarala Srinivas - Seerat Kapoor) life and their own lives.

Whether Allu Sirish was able to overcome the threatening destiny and save his love, is what the thrilling Okka Kshanam is all about.
Though Allu Sirish has improved in his histrionics, he still has a long way to go as far as his emoting is concerned. Surabhi sports a cool look, and is beautiful, playing the damsel in distress, and rocking in the songs where she oozes oomph with her desi masala avatar clad in skimpy outfits. Avasarala Srinivas is an asset to oka Kshanam, as his performance is the highlight of the movie, keeping the audience engaged with his well-written character which is a part of important twists. Seerat Kapoor is as usual reduced to glam show.
While the songs aren't much impressive, Mani Sharma stuns with his terrific BGM that sets the tone of the action-packed intense thriller with adequate twists and turns. Shyam k Naidu's Cinematography is stylish and captures the colorful frames as well eerie scenes with elan. Abburi Ravi's dialogues are well placed in the movie. After impressing with a horror flick and scoring a success, director VI Anand is back this time with an interesting plot line of parallel lives Having extreme similarities, which results in extremely dangerous situations.
While Anand impresses with his tight screenplay, it is his casting that creates a huge trouble, as Allu Sirish struggles to emote, while Avasarala Srinivas helps hold the movie with his menacing act. Though the second half goes unpredictably with sudden twists and more logical loopholes, the movie finally ends up as a decent can watch for the impressive concept and the screenplay.
