  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!

    The first half of the film starts with the footage and pictures of 26/11 attacks in 2008. The movie catches pace with Saif has been appointed by RAW and the interesting screenplay takes the film to the next level. The nail biting narration throughout makes the film highly impressive. The second half of the movie has been completely engaging. Though there are some dips in the second half of the film, the pre climax episodes along with an impressive climax takes the film to the next level. On the whole the complete second half reaches the expectations after a terrific first half.

    You can watch two films by paying for one, if you think it’s awesome, you will be proved wrong. Post-Intermission, the film becomes tedious and the simple film making style will become predictable and bore. As the film progresses, Dashrath ages dramatically with all the fuzzed up wigs and beards looking awfully glued.With all in place, the film does not qualify to receive any superlatives because of the inconsistency in the pace. It is akin to other Ketan Mehta’s films in terms of film sets and milieu.


  • All Is Well Movie Review
    All Is Well Movie Review

    The humour might have been written after watching Bollywood 90’s collection, hence is old and tired. Continuity takes a toss with teleport being a common fold in the film. Things disappear out of the frame and come back in the next and do not ask for more, that is actually more entertaining to spot than anything else in the film. The film runs on a formula, hence a few goons chase them heroes for a repayment of loans Rishi Kapoor must have made. Followed by some cops and in between comes item songs in which Abhishek is seen dancing his signature steps. For the better of plot, a runaway bride and some family melodrama makes it a Bollywood potboiler, and slowly everything fades away to make the film jarring. With All Is Well, every craft is taken care of intricately, only the screenplay was left to the dogs. The film, a comedy of errors, produced by Bhushan Kumar and Shyam Bajaj is an error itself, for it lacks pace and a feeler. Actually, what were they thinking?


  • RangiTaranga Movie Review
    RangiTaranga Movie Review

    There are movies that often scare the audience either with the music or with jump scares. Drawing examples from the movies Insedeous or The Conjuring, the audiences are now well aware of how a movie generally works. Filmmakers are becoming more and more mundane with the way they approach the movie. But, here is a movie that breaks all the odds and puts out a brilliant story with all the horror elements in place. RangiTaranga, a Kannada movie which released recently has won the hearts of a lot of people across the world. Not only does it capture the horror essence, but gives an innate feel. The new wave around it will leave you feeling haunted. The good part about the movie is that, it doesn’t stick to just one genre. The director, Anup Bhandari, has played with different genres to suit the screenplay and storyline.  While the genre, horror, can sometimes backstab in the box office collection, Rangitaranaga gets a thumbs up from all the critics as well as from the audience.   Technicians Technically, the movie will make heads turn. This would be the first time that Hollywood technicians are handling the cinematography for a Kannada film. ‘Lance Kalpan’ and ‘David Williams’ have brought life to the already bright story. The interesting cinematography will make you bite your nails and jump up your seats. As for the music and background music, ‘Anup Bhandari’ and ‘B. Ajaneesh Loknath’, have made it spine chilling. It can even be said that B. Ajaneeshis the third hero of the movie for his startling talent.


  • Uppi 2 Movie Review
    Uppi 2 Movie Review

    Upendra once again shows everyone the mettle and the potential he possesses as a Director and as an actor. Being the director and also the lead role, it becomes tough to manage the creative quotient but Upendra, pulls it off with ease. The movie has everything which an Upendra fan will expect. Uppi 2 does not fail to impress the audience with its gripping screenplay and awesome story telling and is filled with high commercial values and entertainment. Though there were no comedy scenes and songs. People will love the Interval bang and it is mind blowing


  • Brothers Movie Review
    Brothers Movie Review

    The good: As a matter of fact, this might be the first time that fight sequences had such extensive detailing of a high-tech arena, glittering with bright lights, deafening spectators, foreign fighters, excitable commentators ( Zutshi) in Bollywood. While most of it has a look and feel of WWF and Hollywood fight flicks, the hooded faces, the slow motions, uniformed assistants marching up the ramp, the beats all are in place and adds a grandeur to the boxing sequences. The bad: Well, there particularly isn’t a point when you think things are bad in the movie as you will never be able to differentiate between the good parts. Yes, that does mean there are no scenes except plain boxing sequences. The background score rocks the theatres with unnecessary instrumentation. Warning, Carry your earplugs or insure your ear drums.
