After the masterpiece we witnessed in 2012, our expectations for its second round (as you can guess) we as high as the skies above! But to our disappointment, Kahaani 2 turned out to be the black sheep of this sibling relationship. With a loose storyline and predictable screenplay, Sujoy Ghosh created a saga that started off with being highly engaging but fizzled out towards the end.
Kahaani 2: Durga Rani Singh revolves around the life of Vidya Sinha running through the lanes of Chandannagar, a town in West Bengal in search of her lost daughter Minnie. Her mission to find her daughter only begins and she gets caught in a hit-and-run accident. There steps in Inderjeet Singh (Arjun Rampal) who takes up her mission to find her lost daughter and discover Vidya Sinha’s true identity. We won’t give out the plot of the story or reveal spoilers, but Kahaani 2 had the potential of being an even bigger blockbuster as compared to its first part, but the slowdown in the second half of the film caused a major bump in the road for many in the audience, including us.
Vidya Balan’s impeccable acting skills is something that will keep you glued to that theatre screen, while Kahaani’s music crew glued the film together. Lyricist Amitabh Bhattacharya and composer Clinton Cerejo have done a brilliant job with ‘Mehram’ and ‘Aur Main Khush Hoon’ which don’t just hit the right melodies, but also blend beautifully with the movie.
Kahaani 2, will take you through a thrilling journey, one that will leave you wanting more yet keep you at the edge of your seat. A must-watch movie, for sure! But a movie that you can watch again and again – we’re not so sure about that!
We’ll give this one a 3/5
