Freddy Movie Review: Kartik Aaryan excels in roles where we have to take him seriously, but there are a few moments where he gives us chills.
How an actor falls in love with a girl who doesn’t match him, and what happens after that: this scene is for one sign, which must be like millions of movies originated, using the Mumbai-Parsi interpretation. and ‘Freddy’. Dental surgeon Freddy Ginwala (Kartik Aaryan) takes one look at the beauty of Kainaaz Irani (Alaya F) and is stunned. But the woman was not his to win. What follows takes two hours of screen time, full of ambitious women, foolish men, wisdom teeth of the ignorant, and dolls of evil confusion. The good thing is that the Parsi-ness is not overdone, except maybe the situation of ‘dhansak’, and ‘lagan nu custard’ and other Parsi dishes emphasize on the table. Elsewhere, Rustoms and Raymond come and go, setting the course for the main cause of near-fatal allergies, accidents, cold-blooded murders and revenge.
Aaryan handles the dentist’s tools very well. As a handsome young man who knows how to fish, Alaya was born in style. The initial attraction between the two seems believable: as Freddy gradually overcomes his shyness, and Kainaaz communicates and shares secrets with him, they feel comfortable.
But it’s not a movie where everything ends well, and you know halfway through, when things start to get dark. Aaryan excels in roles where we have to take him seriously, and there are few moments where he makes us feel sick. But he can’t get rid of his salubrity: his Freddy is not perfect, even if he plays with sharp tools and perfect teeth without getting sick. He is Alaya at his best in his Janus form, in which he says one thing and means another.
But as soon as the main secret is revealed, “Freddy” becomes visible and makes every minute of the plot very emotional.
