What's the movie aboutVidya Bagchi arrives in Kolkata from London to find her missing husband. Seven month pregnant and alone in a festive city, she begins a relentless search for her husband. With nothing to rely on except fragment from her memories about him, all clues seem to reach a dead end when everyone tries to convince Vidya that her husband does not exist. She slowly realizes that nothing is what it seems. In a city soaked in lies, Vidya is determined to unravel the truth about her husband - for herself and her unborn child even at the cost her own life.

5.0 out of 5 stars A tale well told April 10, 2012
This has happened to me only a few times in my entire life that I went to watch a film that no one wrote a lot about, with zilch expectations but right from the first reel I was glued and struck by the awesomeness that a well made film can truly create. Kahaani is one of such films and interestingly stars Vidya Balan, who seems to have discovered a magic ability to find stories that not only work but create box office magic i.e. Paa, Ishqiya, No One Killed Jessica and Dirty Picture. A true suspense movie with many twists and turns is a story about seven month pregnant Vidya Bagchi ( Vidya Balan) who arrives in Kolkata from London to look for her missing husband Arnab Bagchi ( Indraneil Sengupta). She reaches a dead end everywhere she looks as there is no absolute trace that her husband ever existed. The cops advise her to go back. However rookie sub-inspector Rana ( Parabrata Chattopadhyay) assist her in finding her husband. As the viewer gets sucked in this search with Vidya, you will also find the city of Kolkata riveting as I did. It serves as a great background and is beautifully photographed by Setu with an outstanding background score by Clinton Cerejo. The opening scenes are terrific and do not miss it, (I saw this film in a theater and I noticed that people entering the theater, after these scenes has passed. I wondered if they were able to figure out the entire film because these are crucial scenes) The second half is a little raw but the last 20 minutes are mind blowing and sensational as the ending is quite unexpected. The writing and the direction are extraordinary, Sujoy Ghosh and Advaita Kala's, story and Suresh Nair and Nikhil Vyas , screenplay have done a fantastic job. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Surpasses all expectations!! June 28, 2012
Whilst the current trend in Bollywood consists of unimaginative remakes and no-brainer sequels, 'Kahaani' comes as a huge relief!

Not only is it a brave attempt in giving us a heavily pregnant lead heroine in the day and age of the obligatory Sheila's and Munni's, but it also manages to hook the audience with that 1 magical, key ingredient - SCRIPT!

This superbly written film packs in enough layers and twists to keep the audience involved.
It's compelling cinema, which displays glimmers of warmth one moment, jaw dropping revelations the next!

A kahaani this enjoyable, demands to be seen, to be experienced, as giving away any plot devices would be unforgivable.

Director Sujoy Ghosh deserves to be applauded for not compromising on his conviction by sparing us the compulsory item song or random special appearance by a `star' to draw in the crowds.

Instead, the film relies on its solid script, gripping narrative and arresting performance by the supremely talented Vidya Balan!

Although essentially a female centric film, it doesn't take away from the sharp performance by Nawazuddin Siddiqui as Khan or the sensitive, thoughtful character, Rana, played by Parambrata Chatterjee.

The crisp cinematography and background score also work in giving this thriller that extra edge.

Another huge bonus is the haunting rendition of `Ekla Chalo Re' by Amitabh Bachchan, which makes the experience all the more enjoyable.

Strongly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Mind blowing April 23, 2012
Where to start? I just finished watching this movie, and I'm still trying to put into words my experience. I mean forget about the brilliant directing, wonderful script, excellent choice of choosing Kolkata as not just a city but as a living entity; the mere presence of Vidya Balan is worth giving this movie a view. From the very beginning, this movie gets a hold of you in such a way that it gets very hard to pause the video any do anything else. Kolkata is portrayed as it should be - big, confusing, poverty ridden... rich, caring, colorful; the list goes on. The city is used a wonderful back drop to the actual story of helplessness, confusion, being lost, and sadness. *I am at the lack of words again.. Its very hard to put into a sentence(s) the genius that has been achieved here*. Again, the acting capabilities of Vidya Balan cannot be praised enough. We saw glimpses of it in Ishqiya, were treated with a full featured trailer in No One Killed Jessica, got a healthy serving in The Dirty Picture, but this movie is over flowing with evidence of that gift given to Balan. Not a dull moment when Balan's on screen. It is she and she alone that has pushed this film to #45 on the IMDB's list of Top 50 Thrillers (3 stops below Blade Runner). And the ending..... speechless.... You need to watch it yourself to believe it.

Over all, this movie has become one of my all time favorites. I will really be looking forward to more screen miracles from the director Sujoy Ghosh; Balan needs no mentioning, it goes without saying.

Btw, no matter what... I've definitely going to Kolkata the next time I go to India...

1.0 out of 5 stars Warning! January 4, 2013
As far as I know this version of the Blu Ray has a permanent watermark marring the picture from start to finish. Watermarks are not acceptable on a high quality product. They don't stop piracy and annoy the hell out of the paying customers who want to see the film and nothing else. This watermark business has to stop.
