Caller Bum Review: Hotstar Original Direct to OTT Release The film Caller Bum released on the platform today, this was the third film in the segment of Direct OTT release, having previously come with Hotstar’s films like The Big Bull, Dil Bechara, Khuda Hafiz. And Shadisthan was released a few weeks back. I am going to talk about the positive and negative aspects of the film here.
The film stars Naman Jain, Rajshree Deshpande and Sparsh Srivastava in supporting roles with Jimmy Shergill and Asha Negi in the lead roles, The film is written by Nikhil Nair and directed by Gyanesh Zoning. The film is approximately 90 minutes long and is now available on Hotstar in Hindi audio with English subtitles. The film is suitable for watching with family.
The story of the film revolves around Manoj Hessey (played by Shergill), Manoj Hessey and their son Akshay (played by Naman Jain), who were attending a schoolgirl’s condolence meeting a few days back. Suddenly a suicide bomber enters the hall with a bomb attached to his collar. He asks Manoj to do three things or else he will kill all the hostages in the hall. When Manoj starts doing the tasks he feels that the matter is related to his past. To know how this matter connected and what happens in the end, you have to watch the full movie Hotstar.
Jimmy Shergill never fails to impress us and he has done it again, he is amazing in the film, his expressions, dialogue delivery, and everything was so perfect and calm you can’t take your eyes off him. Asha Negi was equally good in the film though I think sometimes she struggles during dialogue delivery, she is good with her expressions and she picks up momentum from the middle of the film and it continues till the end is. Rajshree Deshpande and Naman Jain were great to watch. Rest of the characters in the film were also good. Overall, the film gives a good feel in terms of performance.
I was very disappointed with the plot of the film, the idea was decent, but the way it was executed, it was very bad. The screenplay is still good, the film derails midway. There are many illogical scenes in the movie which make no sense and these events were almost impossible in real life. When you are making a thriller film, you should try to make it as realistic as possible. Haseen Dilruba was the same, there were many illogical scenes in the film, and how strange the climax was. The location of Caller Bomb was good, the film is mainly shot in an indoor location, so there is not much to show. The music of the film was good.
I am taking 2.5 stars out of 5 for the film, you can watch the movie for Asha Negi and Jimmy Shergill. The film is not an over the top thriller but the performance and its short duration make it a must watch. You can watch the movie on hostatar and the movie is family friendly.
