Director : Sujoy Ghosh
Genre : Thriller, Drama
Cast : Vidya Balan, Parambrata Chatterjee and Kharaj Mukherjee
Yes..Vidya Balan achieved what many mainstream Bollywood actresses of new generation couldn't.She carried a film to the super hit category fourth time(No One Killed Jessica, Ishqiya, Dirty Picture,Kahaani) all alone.That too without a proper male lead in the movie.She won last year's national award for best actress in 'Dirty picture'(Biopic of famous yesteryear actress Silk Smitha).And once you watch 'Kahaani' (Story-In English) you are sure she is gonna get a FilmFare and National Awards for this year too.
Vidya plays the role of an NRI woman who comes from London to Kolkata in search of her missing husband.But things were not that easy and that simple.There were incidents which connected her missing husband to national security.Every second gets interesting when the story of this awesome suspense thriller unfolds.The refreshing part about movie is the use of amazing actors from Bengali film industry.They made it look so natural.Parambrata Chatterjee is the second lead of the movie.And Kharaj Mukherjee who plays the station in-charge cop,did an awesome job.Loved those characters.Sujoy Ghosh and his cinematographer did awesome work by capturing the beauty of Kolkota city.
This is undoubtedly a must watch movie for an Indian.But if you are a Non-Indian who loves Bollywood movies,you might get disappointed because this movie don't have elaborated song and dance sequences.But if you are a Bollywood hater you must watch this.
