Watched Karthik calling Karthik yesterday night...
Loved the witty lines in the first half and the gripping second half... there were people who gave it a bad review.
To all of them i have a thing to say. This is not a Govinda movie.
You need your thinking cap to be on top of your head.
Its a nice intelligent movie.. not meant for the average cine goer.
There were lots of unbelievable moments throughout the film.. but then as Indians we deserve a few of such moments even in an art movie.
The shots were professional and the script crisp.
Deepika was stunning too. But as usual, she disappointed the country with her acting skills or rather the lack of it.
Watch out for the scenes where she slaps her 1st boy friend in the movie.. those expressions are there even on my security guard's face on demand.
Also another scene in a song sequence when Farhan pulls the ciggy outta her lips and flings it away.
She looks ravishing as long as she is not asked to emote or even talk.
Farhan did a fine job yet again.. and though he is not blessed with good looks like conventional heroes.. there's something about him that carries off a film solo.
He also acts quite well and there is no tinge of inhibition like Deepika.
On a lighter note, i liked the scene where Farhan transforms for the first time and comes out in a smashing suit all decked up.
The way he goes and beckons his boss.. "Kamath.. we need to talk". That was a nice break from the otherwise 'safe boy' image of his.
The film delves into the mind of a person who is low on fuel so beautifully that you almost feel sorry for Farhan.
A phone call changes his life forever. He doesnt know who's on the line. All he knows is that its a well wisher.
And with that, when he transforms, & instead of pooh-poohing, you tend to celebrate with him.
From then on, everything's goody goody in his life.
The second half takes a complete turn and builds a complete suspense which carries itself well till the end of the movie.
I'll leave it at that.
Don't miss this one.
Verdict : Highly Recommended.
What's new with me?
I feel i have grown up.. because these days i look down on the younger generation :)
