Akhtar's little-boy-lost vulnerable charm holds it all together.

This romantic mystery-drama -- centered on an office nerd whose life is transformed by a series of phone calls from, uh, himself -- is thinly plotted, but surfs on the likable chemistry between Akhtar and co-lead Deepika Padukone.

Audience Reviews for Karthik Calling Karthik (K.C.K.)

After an excruciatingly painful first half of 60 minutes, which could have been shorter or craftier, the film really kicks in. KCK is the story of Karthik (duh), a timid man, bullied around by everyone who gets much needed help by therapeutic phone calls from himself. As bizarre it may seem to be getting calls from himself, which have no existence on his phone records, he decides to go with the flow and trust the caller. His life turns around in a few weeks. But all good things come at a price, and when he accidentally lets slip the secret of his success, everything starts unraveling. It's up to his girlfriend and his psychiatrist to figure out who is this mystery caller and is Karthik all right in his head. The execution of the second half of the movie is pretty good. If only the same effort and class was applied to the first half which is full of clich├ęs, lame songs and over the top acting by both Farhan Akthar and Deepika Padukone.

What a fun way to make a movie about a man losing his mind... or is he...? The cast was brilliant and the ending was very good.

Karthik Calling Karthik was interesting albeit predictable. The movie still works thanks to a great job by Farhan Akhtar and Deepika Padukone. The first half of the movie was far more interesting than the second. Watch this if you're looking for something different from the regular movies Bollywood comes up wtih.
