Karthik Calling Karthik

Fascinating but not mind-blowing.

Farhan Akhtar gives a stellar performance of a man with behavioral problems. I am not going to elaborate a lot on the plot as the movie deserves a watch. 25 minutes into the movie you realize that Karthik has some psychological problem. The beauty of the movie lies in its presentation where the reason for this problem unveils slowly.

Deepika Padukone who plays the role of Shonali has nothing much to do except looking pretty, sipping juice and vodka and smoking cigarettes.

The movie has a decent sound-track. A good performance by Farhan, proves that he is not a one-film wonder.

A spoiler-The telephone plays a major role in the movie.

My rating-***/5.
