Attributes: Movie Reviews

Cast: Vidya Balan, Arjun Rampal, Jugal Hansraj, Naisha Singh, Tota Roychoudhary, Amba Sanyal
Director: Sujoy Ghosh

Kahaani 2 is back with a bang! After leaving the audience completely awestruck with Kahaani 1, Vidya Balan has managed to show that she only gets better with time. Usually, Vidya Balan is known for her strong, bold character that requires no male actor to fill the void. This time around, Arjun Rampal is seen playing an important lead in the film and does complete justice to his role.

Many would think that this film has a connection to Kahaani 1, but to the audience’s surprise it has quite an interesting storyline. Vidya Balan returns this time as Durga Rani Singh, who is a devoted mother of Mini who is paralyzed waist down and gets kidnapped which then forms the centric point of the story. After her daughter gets kidnapped, Durga meets with an accident and goes into coma. Arjun Rampal then makes an entry as Indrajeet Singh, the sub inspector investigating the case. Indrajeet Singh plays a failed cop that misses out on a promotion, which places him into this small town, Chandanagar, facing his own problems.

Sunjoy Ghosh brings up the issue of child abuse in an extremely sensitive way that highlights the issue very brilliantly. All the suspense is built up in the first half and kept tight by the spitting image or Durga singh who is wanted by the Kolkata Police. The flashbacks into the past make the movie a little predictable with no twist as such. In comparison to Kahaani 1, the predictability of the movie is a let down.

The first half is literally a cliff hanger and keeps you hooked on to watch the second half, there on it unfolds in a rather anticipated fashion though a little mystery is maintained. The cinematography is commendable throughout the entire pace.

Is Kahaani 2 a must watch? Definitely so! Vidya Balan and Arjun Rampal have shown some incredibly fine acting skills! Not your typical hindi movie and who doesn’t love to watch the fierce Vidya Balan right?
