This movie is a sequel to 2012 unpredictable box office hit “Kahaani”, atleast as the name suggests directed by Sujoy Gosh starring Vidya Balan.
The movie is based on stories of two women, one is school clerk named “Vidya Sinha” whose paralysed daughter goes missing mysteriously & her struggle to find her & save her within stipulated time & other one is a criminal named “Durga Raani Singh” who is wanted for kidnapping of 6 year old girl & murder. There is one new character has been added as Inspector Indrajeet Singh played by Arjun Rampal who is assigned to solve both the cases.
Like I said above the only sequel factor you will notice in the movie will be the title of the movie & Of course vidya balan. I had to say this because storyline of the movie is totally independent from the previous one & could be disappointing for you if you are going with very high expectations. That is mainly because of almost predictable plot & suspense of the story.
Coming to Performances, Vidya Balan’s performance is good (which is obvious as she is national award winner 😉) but not as great as it was in Kahaani, Other artists have aslo performed really well like arjun, jugal & kharaj, but if I have to choose the best then it will undoubtly be Naisha Khanna(Young Mini Sinha).This little girl has amazed me with her talent at such a young age & is phenomenal throughout the film.
Though the movie is not that great but it could be considered as one time watch if you have been waiting for this.
