Non-Stop Thrill Ride

Two years after a terrible incident in the Kolkata subway, a pregnant woman named Vidya Bagchi (Vidya Balan) arrives from London and visits the police station looking for her missing husband. A young police officer Rana (Parambrata Chatterjee) is helpful, but there is no trace of her Bengali husband who she claims must be working in this city. A seemingly routine case of a missing person becomes complicated and even deadly as they continue to investigate.

Deftly directed by Sujoy Ghosh, “Kahaani” is a slick Indian thriller centering on this heroine determined to find out what happened to her husband. The fast-paced film offers enough thrills and entertainment to satisfy the most jaded fans of the genre, with Vidya Balan’s strong performance as he unique protagonist and the vivid depictions of the busy city streets of Kolkata, where filming took place.

It is obvious that the film’s heroine and story has something to do with the Hindi mythology which I do not know. Even so, I enjoyed myself watching the two-hour non-stop thrill ride.

Great drama full of surprising turns. Beautiful movie.


This is a most excellent film, for any country, any genre. It is engaging and suspenseful from start to finish, clever and very satisfying. All the actors did a beautiful job, especially the incredibly convincing Vidya Balan in the title role. Can't wait to watch it again soon, now that I know all the secrets. Unfortunately THE VIEWING EXPERIENCE IS BADLY MARRED by producer Shemaroo's logo/watermark APPEARING IN LARGE CAPITAL LETTERS ON EVERY FRAME OF THE FILM. This is very distracting and inappropriate. It is exactly like your company purchasing a Van Gogh painting and then painting your company logo on the face of it to shamelessly advertise yourself at the expense of the work of art. This film (like Queen--same problem) is fine art and Shemaroo has spoiled it. I complained to them at customerservice@shemaroo.com and I urge you to do the same. Maybe if enough people complain they'll stop this inappropriate and unnecessary practice.
