Kahaani

Story

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 :

Kahaani

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 :

Kahaani

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!

  • ABCD 2 Movie Review

    ABCD 2 Movie Review

    The film is inspired by the real-life story of Mumbai-based Fictitious Dance Group members who competed at the World Hip Hop Dance Championships in 2012. Prabhu Deva's character has obvious parallels with Chak De India's Kabir Khan (Shah Rukh Khan) who after being labeled as traitor coaches a struggling team to a world cup win and proves his patriotism win or we can also see similarity with Iqbal's  Naseerudin Shah , a drunk coach who later guides the protagonist ( Shreyas Talpade) to become a successful bowler. Perhaps the film needed a better treatment in both writing and editing department. The length of the film is another major issue as the second half is unnecessarily long. The film with its lazy dialogues and predictable plot fails to hold the audience's attention. Though the film has more inescapable parts where the film loses the viewer, on a whole the film looks okay. The film is clean and healthy family fare.

    Hamari Adhuri Kahani Movie Review

    First things first. Despite having a huge 'star presence' in the form of acting power horses like Emraan Hashmi, Vidya Balan and Rajkumar Rao, the film simply fails to register in the minds of the audience. And the main reason for the same is its weak script that is combined with heavy melodrama, which is tough to digest in today's time. It's hard to believe that Mahesh Bhatt who has written this script after a long time is stuck in such a time warp. It is indeed even more shocking that HAMARI ADHURI KAHANI comes from the same filmmaker who gave back to back hits like AASHIQUI 2 and EK VILLAIN last. But, in the case of HAMARI ADHURI KAHANI, one can't help but blame its poor script and direction. Despite the fact that the film does have its share of gripping moments, in totality, the film seems to be a letdown. The film's characters are half baked and operate on some bizarre logic which makes you laugh after a point! There is also barely any built up for Emraan and Vidya's love story. Eventually, you just don't feel anything for any of the characters!

    Tanu Weds Manu Returns Movie Review

    The first half of the movie has been highly entertaining right from the first scene. The movie has been racy and engaging. The film brings out lot of question however the audience ends up getting wrong answers. On the whole, the complete first half has been highly impressive. The second half too carries the same momentum but it dips at times. When you feel that the movie is losing its grip, the film gains the momentum back. An emotional and well written climax makes the film a highly satisfied film to watch this weekend.

    Bombay Velvet Movie Review

    The movie is good on eyes. The movie takes you through the Vintage world. The rich cinematography, detailing presentation adds the cream. But these can drag the movie to some extra stars. The movie has its own cons as well. The narration fails to hook the audience till the end. Scenes are stretched and creates you boredom. The plot misses the tempo and struggles between love story, crime saga, urban legend and corruption drama. There is enough Godfather, Casablanca, and Chicago, but the actual Bombay velvet is comparatively less Its cinematography and performances, particularly Ranbir's edgy 'big shot', merit an extra half-star. But while Bombay Velvet is stylish, this fabric could have been smoother.

    Piku Movie Review

    The first half of the movie has perfect narration and flavor. The narration has been top notch with loads of entertainment. The movie has been racy and interesting. On the whole the complete first half of Piku has been highly impressive. The second half has been slow compared to the first half but on the whole the second half has been impressive with emotional content taking the major role. The movie is sure an example of critical Indian families.

    Gabbar Is Back Movie Review

    The first half of the film has been racy with power packed action episodes and powerful dialogues which make the audience stick to their seats and watch the film interesting. On the whole the first half of the movie has been gripping and sensible enough. The second half of Gabbar Is Back has dipped at times but the accident sequences have been managed well. The songs have been poorly shot which makes the film fall at times. But the climax of the movie elevates the film which makes it a decent watch.
