    KAHAANI music review: A rocking soundtrack with a Bengali flavour

    KAHAANI music review: A rocking soundtrack with a Bengali flavour

    Music: Vishal-Shekhar
    Lyrics: Vishal Dadlani, Anvita Dutt and Sandeep Shrivastava
    Rating: 4/5
    Vishal-Shekhar get the chance to explore a different territory and they make the most of the opportunity
    After rendering music for several romcoms and big budget flicks like RA.One, Vishal-Shekhar have found a perfect opportunity in Kahaani, which allows them to work on the melodies freely without having to worry too much about the commercial value of the songs.
    The album has a strong Bengali flavour since the film is based in Kolkata and the tracks are situational. The strongest song in the album is Shotti bolchi. Last year Usha Uthup shone with Darling from 7 Khoon Maaf, and Shotti bolchi is a fitting follow-up to that one. Click here to read more

    KAHAANI Movie Review: ‘Baap’ of a thriller

    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.

    Vidya Balan, who won the best actress National Film Award for her bold and beautiful performance in The Dirty Picture, says she has achieved a lot more than she ever expected to in her seven-year Bollywood career. “I am feeling very good. Actually, I am speechless to tell how wonderful and happy I am feeling,” the 33-year-old said at an event. “I always thought of receiving at least one National Award in my career. I am just seven years old in the industry and I already have a National Award to my credit. As I said, I have got much more than I had expected. I am feeling very content,” she added.
    Vidya forayed into Bollywood in 2005 with Parineeta and received the Filmfare award for best female debut for her role as Lolita.  The year 2011 proved to be splendid for the actress, whose No One Killed Jessica and The Dirty Picture received accolades.
