Kahaani- Movie Review


Vidya Balan’s proved what a brilliant actor she is in the past with the movies she’s done and I had no doubt that Kahaani would be as good if not better. Here’s what I thought of ‘Kahaani’.

Vidya Balan (Vidya Bagchi) is a pregnant lady in search of her missing husband in Kolkata. As time goes by, various mysteries unfold leading to the truth.

And what a movie! The story is different and I love the way it unfolds bit by bit. The screenplay is superb and gripping, the cinematography makes the film look beautiful, the background music makes you move with the story, the production design, costumes, make up is all so real that you feel like you’re watching a real story. It’s just amazing the way the beginning leads to an end you’d never anticipate and that’s what makes a film stand out and that’s what cinema is all about! Sujoy Ghosh, the director is passionate and it shows in his work. Brilliant is not the word!

Vidya Balan is natural and unpretentiously real in her acting and that’s what makes you believe that she really is Vidya Bagchi. Her character is one you sympathize with and at the same time find her independent, brave and strong willed to go looking for her husband on her own. When she acts, it doesn’t look like she’s acting and that’s the best part about her. I also thought her co-actor Parambrata Chattopadhyay (Rana) was very natural and endearing. There’s a creepy character who plays a contract killer in the film who actually creeped me out big time! In fact, I think every character contributed well in the film.

Three cheers for Kahaani and its entire team! I recommend it! Do not miss it!

Rating– 4/5
