Kartik Aaryan has set the cash registers ringing with the whooping success of Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 and is back with another exciting project ‘Freddy’. The movie is a psychological thriller and is made with a budget of Rs 70 crores. The story revolves around a dental surgeon and how his love turns into an obsession.
Lead actress Alaya F charged Rs 1.5 crore for her role in the movie and our 32-year actor, who plays the role of Dr. Freddy Ginwala, took home a paycheck of Rs 7 crores.
The movie is a revenge thriller. The first half builds up the introverted character of Freddy, his innocence, his crush on Alaya F and everything seems fine until a twist comes in the 2nd half that comes in Freddy’s life and transforms him. The story line gets gripping and more interesting. The dark traits of his character are bone-chilling. The curiosity builds up. Kartik’ s acting is stellar, and we all love him for it.
The movie starts off well but somewhere along it does lose its grip. It touches on the topics of mental health, childhood trauma, loneliness and its impact on an individual. The thriller is like a dangerous cat and mouse game and somewhere the thin line between the victim and the villain blurs.
Directed by Shashanka Ghosh, watch it on Disney+ Hotstar.
