  4/5 This mystery is worth ...

Ah, what fun! A true-blue Bollywood mystery after long years!...



Vidya Bagchi, a pregnant woman lands in Kolkata, looking for her missing husband Arnab Bagchi. She sent him for work at National Data Center two weeks back and he has been missing since a week. Research makes her find out that there is no person by the name of Arnab working in NDC neither there was someone who landed in Kolkata by that name during that period. Also, NDC’s ex-employee Milan Damji who was involved in the Kolkata terror attacks, 2 years back looks exactly like Arnab. Now, to find Arnab, Vidya needs to find Milan and how are they related.

Analysis :


A never-seen-or-heard-before story is what makes Kahaani stand tall amidst all the suspense thrillers that we have seen. Even films like Don 2 stand nowhere close to it. The film is an edge-of-the-seat entertainer and though it is serious and dark, it has its share of necessary humour with nothing going over the top.

Performance :


Vidya Balan is impeccable and unbeatable at her craft. The lady deserves a national award year by year. There is no denying that she alone can take the film to another level. Parambrata Chattopadhyay as Vidya’s sole companion in her search is absolutely talented. His natural acting prowess stuns. There is no one who is a miscast in the film whether it is the second-in-command at the Indian intelligence or the chief or anyone else. A scary contract killer who works as an insurance agent also does a fabulous job.

Final Word ‘Kahaani’, an interesting flick to Watch… Don’t give this film a Miss!

  • Happy Bhag Jayegi Movie Review
    Happy Bhag Jayegi Movie Review

    The first half of Happy Bhag Jayegi has been decent with sensible entertainment throughout. The narration has been decent and interesting which makes the audience impressed. The performances by the lead actors is the major highlight and the way the film has been presented will sure make everyone happy. On the whole the first half of the film has been decent and interesting with colorful songs and humorous entertainment throughout.The second half of the film turns predictable and dips down because of many sub-plots and stories. The romantic episodes look faked away however the presentation of the film still doesn’t make it fall flat. Some of the episodes seem completely forced and they do not make much impact. The pre-climax episodes seem so dragged and it is the performances which make the film lively and interesting. The climax has been decent and the second half of Happy Bhag Jayegi fails to live up the expectations because of the predictable screenplay and many unwanted episodes.


  • Mohenjo Daro Movie Review
    Mohenjo Daro Movie Review

    The movie is not really about Mohenjo Daro civilization but a story set in the backdrop of it. The story is very simple and a plot that has been witnessed lot of times before. The plot of Tollywood blockbuster ‘Bahubali’ is similar. However, director Ashutosh made the movie look engaging by setting it in an era and place where we are totally unfamiliar. He takes us to the world and makes us witness the proceedings without making it mundane anywhere.


  • Rustom Movie Review
    Rustom Movie Review

    While the first half of the movie is gripping, certain portions of the second half of "Rustom" might shift your eyes to your watch. The narration gets somewhat sloppy at certain points but the director manages to accelerate the pace soon again.After films like "Baby" and "Airlift," the audience had expected similar, if not more, action and thrill from Akshay in "Rustom." But the latest release does not have many enthralling moments to remember the film by. Also, there are some flaws in the movie that defy logic. One of the scenes shows an antagonist having strong evidence in his hand to put the protagonist behind bars but he merely waits for the police to reach him and collect the proof.


  • Fever Movie Review
    Fever Movie Review

    The first half is replete with confusion and the audience loses the plot several times. The narrative heads nowhere and does not get you hooked, despite desperate efforts to be true to the thriller genre. The second half drags as well and the resolution of the plot leaves you disappointed and abounds in loopholes.The stylised action, deafening background score and unwarranted scenes with forced attempts to add shock value do nothing to elevate the viewing experience. On the contrary, these make it even more complex and boring to watch.


  • Budhia Singh - Born to Run Movie Review
    Budhia Singh - Born to Run Movie Review

    The first half of Budhia Singh: Born to Run has been realistic to the core and it has been narrated with utmost passion. The entire film has been meaningful and the performances by the lead actors has been stupendous. The presentation of the film raises no questions as has been framed perfect and interesting. On the whole the first half of Budhia Singh: Born to Run has been interesting and appealing throughout.The second half of the film has a different story as it showcases the other side of the story. However the film has been extremely convincing and lives up to the core. The emotional content along with the realistic episodes have been presented in the best way and the climax of the film has been quite interesting. On the whole the second half of Budhia Singh: Born to Run impresses to the peaks.


  • Dishoom Movie Review
    Dishoom Movie Review

    The first half of Dishoom has been just ok as the film has many unwanted episodes balanced with interesting scenes. The execution has been so bad that the film will be liked by those who leave their brains at home before entering the theatres. Some of the logics have been completely ignored however Varun Dhawan has taken charge and entertained the audience to the core. On the whole the first half has been decent.The second half of Dishoom is responsible for the film to fall flat. It fails in all the available ways as the director failed to keep the audience engaging. The entire film has been highly predictable and is boring.. John Abraham has been utterly wasted and some of the action episodes have been shot interesting. The antagonist in the film has been completely ignored which fails to balance the movie. On the whole, the second half of Dishoom is a total disappointment.
