My only criticism is that it bends the truthfullness of Multiple Personality Disorders quite a bit. It's not QUITE being untruthfull, but it certainlly streches the breaking limit!
The screenplay and directing by 31-year-old, first-time writer/director Vijay Lalwani were taut and understated, which to me is far more effective at drawing the viewer into the story than the excesses of the typical masala Hindi films. The music by Bollywood veterans Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy was spot on, not showy for it's own sake but lending uncannily perfect support to the story in every scene, even down to the incidental passing scenes. Deepika Padukone is stunning as usual and her work gets better and better. She plays Shonali, Karthik's long-desired love interest, with a nice balance of vulnerability and coolness. But it's Farhan Akhtar's film, and he's a revelation here, adding the perfect comedic and dramatic touches to Karthik to steal your heart and send you on an emotional rollercoaster. At 135 minutes, it's also on the short side for Bollywood films, and as wrapped up as I was in it, it flew by.
As movie is suspense thriller, it's not worth to discuss story. At glance it look more like beauty and geek kind of material, but turns into more meaningful storyline that keeps you engaging till end. As for Deepika, she is still learning and did as expected to do but Farhan Akhatar is improving with every film. At first he started acting for fun, but now he seems more sincere about the same.
Nothing negative about this movie.
All in all KCK is one more movie from bollywood this year that is worth watching
Karthik played by Farhan Akhtar is shy and introverted; he is picked on by colleagues and does not have any friends. He secretly pines for Shonali ( Deepika Padukone ) but ends up losing her to a more aggressive colleague. Things are dismal, until one day he receives a phone call. Life starts undergoing a change; he finds confidence, success at work and even manages to woo Shonali. Life is great, but one day he breaks the rules imposed on him by the secret caller.
I liked the movie and it was not just interesting but beautifully shot as well. The makers have managed to make even the most drab places look sophisticated. The music is quite catchy especially Uff Teri Ada. The second half of the movie could have used some editing and better writing but ....
The movie belongs to Farhan Akhtar who acts well and delivers his best performance so far after Luck by Chance. Deepika manages to look pretty. Three stars. 9/24/10

"Karthik Calling Karthik" is a sweet and wholesome yet diabolically Hitchcockian schizophrenic love story. Not the sort of movie we Americans usually see exported from Bollywood.Published on November 24, 2011 by Michael Harbour
I will avoid discussing the particulars, that would spoil the fun. In any case it's unusual to see a suspenseful psychological drama of this quality coming out of India (at least... Read morePublished on August 17, 2010 by G. Teslovich
