Karmma Calling Review

Rahul Desai

Plot Overview

The series follows Karma's quest for revenge in Alibag, targeting a wealthy elite. Criticized for lack of originality, it draws parallels to the 1993 film "Baazigar."

Unraveling Narrative

"Karmma Calling" suffers from a disjointed narrative, attempting an old-television aesthetic that results in time-expanding storytelling and mediocre scenes like the Karva Chauth party.

Character Stereotypes

The characters rely on stereotypes, with rich youth obsessing over Harvard, lovers using clichés, and high-society interactions reduced to smug smirks and one-liners, lacking depth.

Technical Flaws

The series exhibits technical issues like inconsistent dubbing, distracting staged scenes, and performances resembling reality show auditions, failing to convey cold-bloodedness convincingly.

Camp and Kitsch Gone Wrong

Attempting camp and kitsch, "Karmma Calling" falters in execution. Robotic portrayals, poorly staged scenes, and a lack of guile result in a series devoid of style and tact.

Final Verdict

In summary, "Karmma Calling" is criticized for lacking excuse, style, and tact. The pun is used that while Karma may be calling, its number has been marked as spam.
