Youngsters Shyam and Ruchi, who are in a relationship, are forced to confront a set of surreal, life-threatening situations. Will they sail through or will the events break them?
8:20 has a story that was probably never told before in Mollywood. It has one song in which the leading lady appears ravishing and dreamy. However, the final product proves that a novel plot isn't all that is required to churn out a sensible film. Shyam and Ruchi are a couple whose priority clashes often mar their happiness. As they inch forward, an unexpected phenomenon sneaks into their lives. However, it hardly thrills the audience.
The first half of the film is replete with amateurish comedy and acting, unnecessary 'new-generation' sounds and sequences that trigger massive yawns. One wonders why certain comedy punch lines of yesteryear movies are wasted on the film's barely-humorous scenes and characters sketched as buffoons. Until the interval,

Then it gets down to what it actually wants to show. Then on, the film beckons with a bit of thrill. The thoughts on - will she, will she not? - would start bothering the audience too. Sadly, the script is often sloppy to leave an impact or entertain the audience. Watch the film if new plots excite you.
