Karthik Calling Karthik-review

WOW. This was my reaction when the movie was reaching towards its climax. 2 days and 2 impressive movies :) Gils getting luckier i should say :) The reviews were half hearted over the movie. So was not very confident when i ventured in. But few minutes into the movie, it felt as if i was watching myself few years back!! My first job..tryant boss..a team where people didnt even remembered me after being there for 8 months..unapproachable beauty queen..Ditto. Everything fitted in so well that it was engrossing to watch and eager to see how this guy's story unfurls.

Farhan does the job of being a loser so well that, for a moment you forget how successful that guy actually is in real life. Coming from such a background, where with his midas touch, he has hit jackpot with whatever he had tried, this role would've been tough on him. But he fits into it so well!! Nice job Farhan. And yeah..the gals and ladies "ooh" aah"s him whenever he is on screen!!! Deepika padukone ..hmm...to borrow a quote from one Danush movie, "pongalukay vedi veikaravan..diwalina kekanuma". She looks a million bucks. Oh. Pona postla athey comment Trishaku solitenla. Seri. She looks a billion bucks. My seat was third row corner seat from the screen. Those cute dimples looked so huge i fell in love with them again and again. (Control gils..blogspot nananji poachu!!) The third main character in the movie- ofcourse the villain, is telephone. The entire story is spun around the phone. Premise very simple. Hero gets calls from someone sounding like himself advising him on his life and how to live better, but warns never to reveal about the calls to anyone. But our noble hero thinks otherwise and discloses the secret to heroine. All hell breaks loose. His life becomes murky, messy and total collapse follows. He runs away from all this to lead a life in isolation for a while and once he gets confident that he is out of the clutches of the phone maniac, he pings heroine again. But little did he knew the repercussions. Its a very predictable thriller with an even more predictable end. But its a thriller nevertheless. And the ending couldnt have been anything else. Very logical flow of scenes. Farhan rocks as the confident guy and also is at ease as the loser. The lead pair sizzles with their chemistry. Their romantic scenes, especially the coffee date, where Deepika tries to describe her dream lover with Farhan, coughing to remind her of himself..loved it. "Uff teri ada" goes right into 2010's top songs.

Gils verdict - Allow the movie to thrill you and dont try to guess the ending. It surely is a nice movie and a very decent attempt. Definitely not the routine run of the mill stuff.
