Karthik Calling Karthik Movie Review by Maverick_12210 – Karthik Calling Karthik is good in parts, First half moves at a fast pace, certain sequences do give you a thrill, but the second half is a bit stretched, Farhan is simply superb as Karthik, Deepika looks hot as Shonali. 2 songs – “Uff Teri Ada” & “Hey Yaa” are good to the ears. Overall My Verdict on Karthik Calling Karthik – Go See Karthik Calling Karthik only if you are a Farhan or a Deepika Fan.

Karthik Calling Karthik Critics Reviews
Shweta Parande (CNN IBN) 3.5/5
The director has effectively been able to make a thriller out of a story about the games our mind plays. The treatment is edge of the seat and smooth. But Karthik Calling Karthik never gives you that high you expect from a thriller
Rajeev Masand (CNN IBN) 2/5
In the end, Karthik Calling Karthik appears confused and half-baked, and it commits that deadly unforgivable cinematic sin – it bores you!
Sukanya Verma (Rediff) 2.5/5
While Lalwani deserves a pat for working around an unusual, intriguing plot, he fails to sustain the same with substantial meat or layers
Anupama Chopra (NDTV) 2.5/5
The characters don’t engage you emotionally and the mystery isn’t thrilling enough. The pacing is uneven but the fatal flaw is the limp resolution
Taran Adarsh (Bollywood Hungama) 2.5/5
Karthik Calling Karthik is a decent product with an unconvincing conclusion. Watch it for the wonderful performances of Farhan and Deepika, if you have to. Caters to the youth in metros mainly.
Nikhat Kazmi (The Times of India) 3.5/5
The screenplay does tend to get a bit clunky and the drama somewhat heavy as the director looks for text book resolutions of the teasing problem. But, by and large, there is a thrill factor that keeps the momentum on
