It has been garnering rave reviews from the critics and the audience not only for the power packed performance of Vidya Balan but also for the incredible journey director Sujoy Ghosh takes you on in Kahaani. Set against a menacing backdrop of Kolkata’s by-lanes and alleyways, Kahaani presents Vidya Balan essaying the role of a heavily pregnant, married woman desperately seeking clues into her husband’s mysterious disappearance in a foreign land. The story follows Vidya Bagchi (Vidya Balan) who arrives in Kolkata from London to find her missing husband. Seven months pregnant and alone in a festive city, she begins a relentless search for her husband. With nothing to rely on except fragments from her memories about him, all clues seem to reach a dead end when everyone tries to convince Vidya that her husband does not exist. She slowly realises that nothing is what it seems. In a city soaked in lies, Vidya is determined to unravel the truth about her husband – for herself and her unborn child – even at the cost of her own life.
Kahaani is further heightened by a haunting soundtrack, courtesy of Hindi cinema’s gifted composing duo, Vishal-Shekhar. Sujoy Ghosh told us, “What we wanted to create was music, which would reflect the sentiments of the film, which would echo what the character is feeling, and echo what the city is all about. When people hear the songs of Kahaani they should feel the film. They should see the film in front of them.” We certainly felt they nailed it because we loved the soundtrack so much here at BollySpice we gave it 4.5 stars!
