KAHAANI quick movie review: It’s a fast-paced, edgy thriller
After The Dirty Picture, there have been a lot of expectations from Vidya Balan. She delivers and how! Vidya plays a heavily pregnant woman in Kahaani. She comes to Kolkata in search of her husband Arnab Bagchi, who is missing. There has been a lot of speculation about whether Arnab exists or not, whether Vidya can pull of the role of a strong but sedate woman who is not going to repeat her sexy act from TDP.
Our reviewer who is watching the film right now texted us during the interval, “Kahaani is an edgy thriller. It moves at a fast pace, the sort you’d expect from a short film. Nawazuddin Siddiqui plays a supercop who helps Vidya and he is brilliant!” We now hope the second half doesn’t disappoint us. Fingers crossed.Click here to read more
KAHAANI Movie Review: ‘Baap’ of a thriller
Very occasionally you watch a Bollywood thriller film that manages to outsmart you, engages you, makes you hate the interval point and then packs in a message towards the very end, that too with a sledgehammer thud… Sujoy Ghosh’s Kahaani is all that and more!
Thanks to the huge success of Tigmanshu Dhulia’s Paan Singh Tomar, some credit is being given not just to the actor of a film, but to its writing, an aspect that is usually ignored. Director Sujoy Ghosh’s latest film Kahaani is a step in the right direction for Bollywood, as far as intelligent writing is concerned, at least. Perhaps Kahaani would have been an also-ran without the acting genius of Vidya Balan, but with her, the film is a delight to watch, because of the surprises it throws at you and by the power-packed performances by its cast in entirety.
