The next morning she woke up and said sorry for being asleep so long and then went back. The climax of the film totally set us back back and we saw Eddy going to the graveyard where his wife and kid were buried. Eddy was actually healing himself by cuddling others though.

Coming straight from the makers of Rogan Josh, Call him Eddy is also one of the greats to witness. With a completely different and real concept the plot is able to go directly to the heart of the viewers. Sanjay Suri is a legend himself and with his brilliant acting skills he never disappoints the audience a bit, Eisha gupta nowhere looks overshadowed by Sanjay suri and she is well able to establish her own individuality through the movie, she was entirely different all throughout.

Call him Eddy short film totally revolves around two people only but  nowhere it’s felt that there should be more characters or subplot involved or something is missing. The film is actually built on reality that with the passage of modernisation or time we are losing the human touch. People these days though being surrounded by many still feel alone and these days the same thing leads to suicides and depression as they are not able to share their actual feeling with anyone and nor there is someone to understand.

The screenplay of the movie is beautiful and looks great on screen. The dialogues have been kept simple yet effective. The short film is great to watch and is entirely worth watching.
