  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!

  • Beiimaan Love Movie Review
    Beiimaan Love Movie Review

    The movie has enough clinches throughout and it has not been properly written and executed. The songs have been placed well and Sunny Leone is the only saviour for the entire film. The twirls that come at regular intervals have been completely predictable and they do not excite the audience much. With a boring and outdated narration, the first half of Beiimaan Love has been below average. The second half of Beiimaan Love too follows the same path and it doesn’t have anything that excites the audience. The songs have been shot well and the visuals looked lavish. Sunny has been hot and ravishing in each and every frame in the film. The climax has been completely simple and on the whole the second half of Beiimaan Love is a huge disappointment.


  • Mirzya Movie Review
    Mirzya Movie Review

    The first half of Mirzya starts with a bang and the movie has its loud moments. It is Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s narration that has been grand and loud all over. It never lets you down and the performances throughout the film take Mirzya to the next unusual level. It is the screenplay which makes the film interesting on the whole. The interval episodes raise the heat all over and on the whole the entire first half of Mirzya is a treat.However the second half has a huge dose of drama which makes the film fall down. Though the performances by the lead actors elevate the film once again, the film fails to make much impact. However it is again Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra who takes the film to the next level with his technical predictabilities. Some of the episodes have been well written and presented stupendous on screen which makes us forget about the flaws in the second half. On the whole the second half of Mirzya has been decent and is worth watching.


  • M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story Movie Review
    M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story Movie Review

    The first half of the film completely focusses on the struggles that Dhoni faced in his life. The director made sure that the film has interesting run time for the important aspects in his life. All his struggles during his early days have been showcased well. MS Dhoni: The Untold Story is all about an emotional journey of MS Dhoni which has been projected well on screen. However the first half looks slow and dragged abit. But on the whole, the first half is sure an impressive part if you ignore the length of the film.The second half of MS Dhoni: The Untold Story has many desperate moments that happen in the cricket dressing room and cricket politics along with Dhoni’s relation with his teammates. Most of the episodes have been narrated with utmost clarity and the film has been carried on well by Sushant Singh Rajput with his flawless and outstanding performance. However the film dips down at parts but on the whole, MS Dhoni: The Untold Story has an interesting and inspiring second half.


  • Banjo Movie Review
    Banjo Movie Review

    The first half of Banjo starts on an interesting note, however the film slips down completely even before the interval episodes. Banjo has been filled with logicless episodes which really test the patience of the audience. The songs have been decent however the major plot has been left completely away while indulging the commercial aspects into the film. On the whole the first half of Banjo has some engaging episodes but the audience will be left confused because of the narration midway.The second half of Banjo dips down completely because of the stupid elements that have no connection with the basic plot of the film. If you are patient enough, only then will you reach the climax of this film. Though the performances have been extremely convincing, Banjo will end up as the biggest disaster because of the poor narration throughout. The basic plot has been neglected completely and the audience will be left shocked with the treatment of the second half.


  • Pink Movie Review
    Pink Movie Review

    The first half of Pink has been stupendous when it comes to narration and execution. The plot has been well written and the movie has been well framed. Each and every scene looks extremely realistic. The performances by the lead actors make the film completely impressive. The gripping screenplay has been top notch and the pre-interval episodes make the audience blown away. The interval episodes make a huge impact and on the whole the first half of Pink has been extremely impressive. The second half of Pink too carries away the same momentum. Every time the film feels low, a twist comes out which will leave the audience puzzled. The performances once again have been top notch and the tight screenplay along with the gripping narration makes Pink highly impressive. The complete second half has been mind blowing and the climax ends up impressing the audience big time.


  • Raaz Reboot Movie Review
    Raaz Reboot Movie Review

    The first half of Raaz Reboot has some interesting experiences of the haunted house which bring curiosity among the audience. However things change completely after many of the episodes look predictable. The basic plot of the movie has been completely outdated and it has nothing new to reveal. Some of the scenes have been completely faked and the interval twist spoils the complete flavour of the film. On the whole the first half of Raaz Reboot has some interesting moments. The second half of the film is a complete boring feast and it offers nothing much to get excited. The cat and mouse chase looks completely unnatural and it has been predictable. The previous instalments of Raaz had some hot and sensuous romantic episodes but Raaz Reboot is an exception for them too. A simple and predictable climax make Raaz Reboot a debacle.
