Movie Review Kahaani 2 – A Must Watch for Thrill Lovers!

Movie Review Kahaani 2

Kahaani 2 is a suspense thriller, which is the second installment in the Kahaani franchise. The movie revolves around the story of a mysterious woman, who is charged with kidnapping and murder. Sujoy Ghosh has written the story and screenplay in collaboration with Suresh Nair, while Ritesh Shah has penned the dialogues for the movie.

Vidya Sinha (Vidya Balan) wants to see her paralyzed teenage daughter Mini (Naisha Singh) walk again. When she tries getting close to silent Mini, she lands in problem with the latter’s uncle (Jugal Hansraj) and grandmother (Amba Sanyal). Things take an interesting twist, when cop Inderjit Singh (Arjun Rampal), who is in search of kidnapper and murderer Durga Rani Singh (Vidya Balan), enters the scene. What happens next forms the crux off the story of Kahaani 2.

Kahaani 2 has an amazing story with a message that has never been explored on Indian celluloid (child abuse). Its screenplay is thrilling and intriguing right from the first frame to the very last. Sujoy Ghosh has once again managed to thrill his audience, who are likely to sit on the edge of their seats while watching the film.

Vidya Balan plays a dual role and she has done justice to both of them One of a sufferer of child abuse herself and second of a woman who will do anything to protect a victim of the same. Her stellar performance is the highlight of Kahaani 2. Balan’s strength is her ability to drown out her own personality for a role. Arjun Rampal has also performed well, he for a change manages to emote and dish out natural expression throughout the film. Jugal Hansraj — the little boy from “Masoom” who grew up to a lacklustre acting career — is surprisingly “effective” as a creep / villain.

The incredibly cute Naisha Khanna and the interesting youngster Tunisha Sharma – both playing Mini at different stages of her life — get limited space to showcase their talent, but are clearly worth watching out for.

Kahaani 2, which has been bankrolled by Sujoy Ghosh and Jayantilal Gada, has good production values.

Clinton Cerejo’s background score and Tapan Basu’s picturization are the attractions in the technical front.

The Film Is A Must Watch for Thrill Lovers!
