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!

  • Phillauri Movie Review

    Phillauri Movie Review

    Phillauri has an interesting story line and it has been well executed in parts. The movie turns quite interesting at times however it is the slow narration which spoils the feel throughout. The first half looks decent and it has some interesting episodes to get entertained. However a huge dip during the pre-interval episodes spoils the mood and on the whole the first half of Phillauri has been quite comfortable to be watched.After a decent first half, the second half fails to make that impact across the audience. The uninteresting narration and the unwanted episodes spoil the film’s feel. They deviate the major plot of the film and irritate the audience. It is Anushka Sharma who shines throughout the film and the visuals look extremely impressive. The climax has been decent and on the whole the second half of Phillauri fails to live up the expectations.

    Trapped Movie Review

    Trapped starts on an engaging and entertaining note with a cute love story and funny conversations between Shaurya and Noorie. The movie takes a major leap after the lead actor gets trapped in a building which is located in the heart of the city. The gripping narration is sure the major highlight though the film has enough flaws that can be ignored purely because of the performances and the tight screenplay. On the whole the first half of Trapped has been decent and interesting.The second half of Trapped strikes hard with its content and it with the performance of Rajkumar Rao completely. Though the film lacks commercial content, the screenplay of the film makes Trapped an interesting one. Rajkumar Rao makes a huge impact with his impressive performance which makes Trapped an impressive film to watch. The climax episodes have been decent.

    Badrinath Ki Dulhania Movie Review

    The entire first half of Badrinath Ki Dulhania has been racy and runs on entertainment which is filled with humour and sensible elements. The songs have been shot extremely well and are the major highlights of the movie. The emotional episodes too take the major leap at the right time and the interval episodes make the film gripping. On the whole the first half of Badrinath Ki Dulhania is a treat to watch.The second half of Badrinath Ki Dulhania too takes the same wave for sometime but the major plot gets deviated after time passes. However the movie returns back soon and the entertainment takes the major show of the film. The performances by the lead actors and emotional episodes during the pre-climax and the climax makes Badrinath Ki Dulhania a winner at the box-office.

    Commando 2 Movie Review

    The first half of the film has been badly penned and executed. It has nothing new to offer and the poor screenplay makes the film flat right from the first frame. Even the characters have not been well framed and it is the pre-interval twist that makes the film interesting. However things change instantly and the songs have not been well shot. The action stunts performed by Vidyut Jammwal are the only good things that happened for the film.The second half of the movie too has nothing much interesting to narrate. It is the lean concept and bad execution that kills the film and its flavor. With many flaws throughout the second half, Commando 2 fails to impress the audience. In the second half, the background score has been apt. The climax episodes have been decently shot however the film fails to make the audience sit engaging.

    Rangoon Movie Review

    The first half of Rangoon starts with a bang and all the three leading actors thrive to perform to their best. Especially Shahid and Kangana have been outstanding. The movie has a predictable plot but it is the narration of the characters and their performances which lead the show. The entire first half has been decent and the songs have been extremely colorful. The performances by the lead actors make a strong impact across the audience.The second half of the film manages to stand convincing but it is the slow pace and dragged episodes that disturb the audience. The songs have been shot well and the backdrop of Second World War has been extremely convincing. The pre-climax episodes make the film interesting and intense. The climax has been decent and on the whole, Rangoon is quite convincing if one ignores some flaws.

    The Ghazi Attack Movie Review

    The first half of The Ghazi Attack starts on a decent note and it narrates about the situations across the sea and what all happens in a submarine. The movie turns interesting after the real plot unfolds. The movie has no commercial aspects, but the director made sure that the audience are never disappointed. With a decent interval episode, the first half of Ghazi is worth watching. The second half of The Ghazi Attack makes a strong impact on the audience. The movie races to the top and the film elevates at the right point of time. The war episodes have been shot exceptionally well and the visual effects are a treat for the audience to be watched on main screen. The last 20 minutes of The Ghazi Attack will leave the audience thrilled and will take the film to the next level. On the whole, the second half of The Ghazi Attack is sure a classic.
