Kahaani - Notepad

wogma rating: Buy the DVD already (?)
quick review:

An extremely quirky atmosphere is created by the camera, the narrative, the sound, the music and Vidya Balan. An experience that might seem incomplete if not watched on the big screen.

Plot Summary

Near-term pregnant Vidya Bagchi (Vidya Balan) is in Calcutta to look for her husband.

What Worked

  • Amitabh Bachchan's voice in the narrative and of course, 'ekla cholo'
  • The justification behind the twist. It is the only reason, Kahaani didn't drop a point or two for the 'cheated' feeling. In its own way, it is smart writing.

What did not

Note: This section simply lists the things that I did not like in this movie. This is not the overall impression about this movie. Please read the full review here

  • The in-the-face way in which the main twist is shot.
  • The horror-style adopted in a couple of scenes.
