Karthik calling Karthik

Amrita gives you her take on Farhan Akthar's latest.

to my expectation I entered the theater with a little high expectation from Karthik calling Karthik, but to my dismay, I was disappointed right from the beginning, the star cast intro was catchy and innovative, but the initial 15 minutes were boring and dragging to show and explain the character of Farhaan Akhtar, just a little later the movie picks up fast and goes smoothly but fails to entertain well, not even a single scene to be called as a fantastic one. A slow melodrama, with least scope to the actors to give their best.

It could have been much better if it was a suspense thriller rather than a psycho patient’s story suffering from schizophrenia. Farhan (Karthik) is a schizophrenic, and is afraid to face people, one early morning he gets a call, just the time he is planning to commit suicide because he considers himself a failure, devoid of friends and love in his life. The call changes his life like a miracle, he suddenly becomes confident and successful, has his beloved Deepika Padukone (Shonali Mukharjee) by his side and is happily enjoying his life, all with the help of this caller, he discloses the fact to Deepika, about getting daily calls from someone who is called Karthik. Deepika insists that he has some mental disorder and must seek a psychiatrist help.

His life becomes hell after this as Karthik had asked him not disclose about their conversations to any one considering people will interpret that he is mentally disturbed. Rebuilding of Karthik's life back is what can sensitize people, a good effort to create a suspense there but still lacks the perfection.

Movie is just average, I can rate it as 3/5. A one time watchable movie. I suggest you go for Teen Patti or MNIK or rather 3 idiots and wait for KCK to be shown on TV.
