Freddy (2022):  Kartik Aaryan Brings His A-Game To The Tablet

Freddy, the newest chill-inducing movie starring Kartik Aaryan, is dark, intense, poisonous, and I suppose that’s why it succeeds. The movie masterfully captures the complexity and oddities of Kartik’s character by presenting him in a never-before-seen avatar. Freddy, a tense thriller directed by Shashanka Ghosh, terrifies, scares, and often just freaks you out.

THE PLOT

The narrative of Dr. Freddy Ginwala, a 28-year-old introvert, recluse, and lone dentist, who has spent five years searching for a “soulmate” on the matrimony website Meri Shaadi.com, keeps you fascinated without batting an eye. Freddy falls in love with married lady Kainaaz Irani, who is trapped in a physically violent marriage, following his unsuccessful attempts to locate a good match and humiliation at the hands of a few prank calls. When she has to have a tooth out, she visits his dentist office. After that, a number of things happen that bring the two of them together and cause them to fall in love. But this love story is about more than simply the joyous occasions, private encounters, and passion the people have for one another. The movie turns into a thriller in the second half.

THE GOOD/THE BAD

Freddy, played by Kartik Aaryan, is a joy to watch. The actor will surprise you with a subtle performance. It’s amazing how quickly he transforms from the quiet, kind, and smiling dentist to someone who is capable of hatching evil plans. He executes the changeover with apparent ease, demonstrating the effort that went into his job preparation. He is charming one second and terrifying the next as you try to predict what he will do next. Although Alaya F makes the most of her time on screen, it appears that the director didn’t feel that her character required much more “extraction.” The storyline is acceptable, and the BGM enhances the story. However, other than Kartik’s performance, there isn’t much else noteworthy.

Everything is fine until Freddy turns into a drama about getting revenge. The plot centers on little, harsh acts of vengeance, but how they are organised is not addressed. Even if the deeds are rather heinous, the lack of details makes everything look juvenile. A potentially scary experience. A succession of amazing occurrences constitutes it. Although Kartik did a good job playing Freddy, there was a lot of room to improve the character’s outline. Understanding his early trauma, how he survived it, if it had any influence on how he becomes as an adult. Whether that influence was real is a huge mistake. To protect Freddy from the harm, the story needed a strong “filling.”

MY THOUGHTS

Watch Freddy to see Kartik Aaryan in a brand-new persona. With each project, the actor improves and surpasses himself. By attempting something challenging and novel with Freddy, he has taken a significant risk and run the chance of failing in every scene. He has worked really hard and dedicated himself to the role of Dr. Freddy, and it is evident. Kartik deserves an extra star for picking a challenging job and doing it flawlessly.
