Kahaani. The review.

From London to Kolkatta, pregnant Vidya Bagchi (Vidya Balan) is unable to understand why no one has any records of her husband Arnab Bagchi, who mysteriously went missing in the past two weeks. Determined to find him, Vidya who is professionally a software engineer and a part time hacker, is head strong to dig deep into Arnab’s past. Despite her pregnancy she travels to the most interior by lanes of Kolkatta, which is in the midst of Durga Pooja celebration. How she uncovers the truth and unfolds the unexpected will keep you hooked till the end.

A logically woven story by Director Sujoy Ghosh, this movie is a true thriller. Other remarkable characters in the movie are of Rana/Satyuki (Parambrata Chattopadhyay) playing a freshman cop, who while helping Vidya finds himself to be smitten by her. Khan (Nawazuddin Siddiqui) as a ruthless and rude intelligence officer, who doesn’t mind sacrificing the lives of a few country men to secure the larger populace. And last but definitely not the least Bob Biswas (Saswata Chatterjee) the soft-spoken, aged LIC Agent, inefficient as a seller of policy but is an outstanding contract killer.
Agnes D’mello, HR, National Data Centre tries helping Vidya and mentions the name of Milan Damji but is murdered the same night. Many such incidences will keep your eyes wide and keep you to your seat clinging for more…

No dancing around the trees, no forced song sequels, but expect great sound score from best of the voices in the Industry: Amitabh Bachchan, Usha Uthup, Sukhvinder Singh, Kay Kay, Shreya Ghoshal and Vishal Dadlani.

A must watch movie of the year, which stands a strong nominee for most of the filmfare category, giving a strong competition to all-future released. Don’t miss this brilliant flick that marks the come of age in Indian Cinema.
