“Kahaani2” starring Vidiya Balan, Arjun Rampal, Nasha Singh, Tota Roy Chawdhary, and Amba Sanyal. Directed by Sujoy Ghosh. Sadly, the film has no connection with the earlier film “kahaani” so calling it a sequel will not be a justice to the film because it has an another story all together. 40 days back when the trailer was released it has got good response from the audiences around, and on the other hand it was expected that the music might wont work and the prediction went right the music is not doing good. Well, the story is a suspense thriller and can be a good experience to watch. The Director Sujoy Ghosh has maintain the suspense and the movie has content from beginning to end to engage audiences, Vidya Balan is playing the character of “Durga Rani Singh” who is dealing with a very sensitive subject. The Director has taken up the responsibility to show case the subject very effectively, had it not been taken seriously and delivered effectively the story could have delivered wrongly. The twist and the turns in movies are very dealt in a very thoughtful way.
The story is about a woman named Durga Rani Singh who has been a victim of child abuse and that has a huge impact on her life afterwards. The impact of her childhood is affecting her present life too and this is makes it out to be Vidya Sinha. Vidya Sinha who is living with her daughter in a small town in Chandnpur near Kolkata. Her daughter can not move she is being ailing with a disease and Vidya wants to treat her daughter so that even her daughter can act like a normal child. Before her daughter can be treated she got kidnapped and Vidya met with an accident and gone to coma. There comes the entry of Sub-inspector Inderjit Singh (Arjun Rampal) who tries to solve the mystry on the other side he is craving for promotion for his family. The first half of the film is strong but second half seems slow and dull.
In terms of acting Vidya has been a Gem to watch for and of course Arjun Rampal has also did well in the movie. As long as the story is concerned it is good but the climax is bit predictable as any other Bollywood movie. Basu’s cinematography, production design, background music is enhancing the quality of the movie. The film raises the sensitive and serious issue of child abuse. Overall the story is slow but it is not as bad as to gain and engage the audiences.
