“Life goes on and get so heavy” – beautiful and yet so factual line from Coldplay’s Song “Paradise”. While chasing for money, fame, luxury or goals, we forget to live and enjoy the moment. This is where Sanjay Suri starrer Call Him Eddy helps us to realize the importance of moments spent with your loved ones
Call Him Eddy tells the story of Edith D’ Souza a.k.a Eddy (Sanjay Suri) who plays the role of a professional cuddler, a niche profile but pretty interesting. As he is being interviewed by a journalist Riya, who is making a documentary on him, Eddy ask Riya to try out one of therapy session which reveals a lot about what and why Eddie left his well-cushioned job and turn into a professional cuddler.

While the brand name of Large Short Films, who have been behind some outstanding short films like Chutney, Juice, Mumbai Varanasi Express, Ahalya, White Shirt etc, makes you curious to watch Call Him Eddy, the beautiful short film turns out to be better than expected and you will feel like spending precious moments with loved ones as life is unpredictable, who knows these moments will come back or not
Sanjay Suri excels in his role as Eddy and brings out the emotions whom you will related. Eisha Chopra does well as Riya especially in the scene where she outburst. I also liked the background score given by Aditya Dev and cinematography by Akshay Singh.
Overall, I would recommend to take time out of your busy life to watch and spend 20 minutes and 23 seconds with Eddy to make your feel good. Excellent 4/5
