Main reason for interview call

I've heard that the main reason for interview call is that the case officer has doubts that the applicant is not geniune or his documents are doubtful.

How far is it true?

It seems like you have a lot of stress about the interview call. Truth is, a lot of us will give you the same answer of 'not sure, you just have to wait' because that's just how DIBP work. To get an idea of how your case is going or how your interview went you'd probably need an in depth analysis of your application and interview by a migration agent and they could possibly give you a tip on what DIBP is thinking
Mostly everyone you speak to here will just give the same advice of just holding on until you hear from them

The main reason for the interview is to assess whether the student visa applicant genuinely wants to come to Australia temporarily to study, or whether they are aiming at getting a permanent residence visa come what may. A recent Federal Court Case suggests that if you tell the Immigration Officer that you want to come to Australia and stay there if you are legally able to do so (as there are pathways and visas that allow you to do that) it would be a really bad move. The best idea is to talk about all the wonderful job opportunities you will have in your own country once you complete your qualification.

I discussed this at length with the head of student visas at DIBP in Perth yesterday at a seminar and he agrees with me that it doesn't really make sense, but that is the way that is is.
