Karthik calling Karthik (2010)

Karthik calling Karthik is a movie that I should write something about without giving away any hints, otherwise I may spoil your entertainment. This is a kind of movie which everything is revealed at the end and you watch it with a confused expression on your face.

Karthik is a guy who has been a looser for all his life. Even though he is smart and hard-working, he is never respected by his colleagues or his house owner. He has no friends, nobody special in his life. He likes a colleague in his office but she doesn’t even recognize him. He pays regular visits to psychiatrist’s office because of a sad thing happened in the past.

When you think that things can’t get worse, they get even worse by him getting kicked out from his job in a very humiliating way. Just when he thinks he can’t take it anymore, he receives a call… From himself…

Karthik calling Karthik is a psychological thriller, which is not a usual type in Bollywood. There are gaps in the screenplay which sometimes make us question the logic, but it is still a movie over the average by Farhan Akhtar‘ acting.
