Karthik Calling Karthik review: Take this call!
Beautifully textured and constructed, Karthik calling Karthik takes us breath-close to the central character, whom his new boss calls `a strange fellow’. Plagued by his brother’s death as a child, an accident he holds himself responsible for, Karthik’s (Farhan Akhtar) sleep is usually a disturbed one. Years of counseling isn’t helping either. Fired after being bullied at work; invisible to office crush Shonali (Deepika Padukone), Karthik contemplates ending it all. Just then, he receives a phone call, with his own voice at the other end. This voice tells him how to dissolve all of his problems and regain his life.
For those familiar with Hollywood, this concept is an idea too late; you might not find Karthik calling Karthik all that exciting, having watched several films along the same lines. For others, this story may seem a fresh incentive indeed. Either way, the film is worth your time for the gripping storytelling and marvelous performances. Recommended.
