    Smile kahani movie review

    After many days I saw a wonderful thriller with numerous twists - KAHANI. It is directed by Sujoy Ghosh. The lead actors are Vidya Balan, Parambritta Chaterjee and Nawajuddin siddique. All the actors of this movie have done their part par excellence. The story, the cast, the music everything scores a perfect ten. In this male dominated industry, Vidya Balan has proved that she can make any movie super hit with her acting prowess alone.
    The plot:- The first scene is of a metro rail gas attack, which killed all the passengers of the compartment of a metro. After two years, a pregnant software engineer Vidya Bagchi(Vidya Valan) arrives in Netaji Subash Airport in Kolkata all the way from London in search of her missing husband Mr. Arnob Bagchi. Straight from the airport she goes to Kalighati police station in search of her missing husband who came for a project to National Data Centre (NDC). She is dropped in a guest house by Satyaki aka Rana. On her way she noticed that Kolkata is getting prepared for the durga puja festival.
    The following days were equally upsetting for Vidya. She is told by the HR Agnes D’mello of NDC that Arnob Bagchi never worked for them. Rana offers her, his help for the quest. He informs her that he has checked with the authorities that on the given date a person named Arnob Bagchi neither boarded the flight from London nor reached Kolkata. But Vidya was still sure that Arnob was in Kolkata, as she talked to her regularly. Together Rana and Vidya went to Thakur Bari in search of Arnob’s Uncle and on the way check the records of the school where Arnob studied. But they were told that no student named Bagchi studied in the school, nor any family named Bagchi stayed nearby.
    Agnes calls up Vidya and tells her to meet in a restaurant. In the meeting she tells her that one ex employee of NDC Milind Damji looks very similar to Mr Bagchi and she failed to access the record of Milind due to some technical problem. In the same night she was killed by Bob Biswas - a contract killer who works as an insurance agent to hide his real identity. Bob has a sweet smile but is a real terror when he kills the victims.
    Mr Khan deputy of IB Chief Baskaran reaches Kolkata and meets Vidya as she was the last person to talk to her. When she tells him about Milind, he screams at her and tells Vidya that Milind Damji never existed.
    Vidya is convinced that Arnob is in trouble for his resemblance to Damji. Vidya decidess that to know about Arnob, Damji should be found out. In order to prove Khan wrong, Mrs Bagchi with the help of Rana steals the document of Damji from old office of NDC and shows it to Khan. Khan tells her that Damji is the man responsible for the Gas attack of Metro two years ago and warned her that he is protected by very powerful people. She comes to the metro station . Just when the metro was coming Bob comes there and pushes Mrs Bagchi and pulles her back. When she runs for her life, Bob yells and tells her to go back.
    Then Mrs Bagchi recalls the address of Milind Damji and finds his house. They came to know through a boy working with tea vendor named Poltu, that sometimes a person with briefcase use to visit Milind. They also came to know that Milind had a rare blood group and needed blood after the accident. A sculptor artist(former policeman) told them to visit Dr.Ganguly for further information. Bob killed Ganguly before he gave more information to them.
    Then the duo took the boy from tea stall Poltu to NDC for identifying the man with the briefcase. Polltu recognised R. Sridhar, an employee of NDC as the man who visited Damji. Suddenly Sridhar turns and had a glimse of Mrs Bagchi with Poltu. He instructs Bob to kill her. This time Bob fails in his attempt and chased by Rana. As Rana chases him, he is run over by a speeding auto. Rana takes his mobile lying there and knows that the serial killer was hired to killed Agnes, Dr. Ganguly and Mrs Bagchi. When they examined the mobile they found that the messages was sent from a computer. Now Mrs Vidya Bagchi is sure that the person sending the instruction is Mr. Sridhar and in order to verify it, she hacks Sridhar’s computer. But through a message in the mobile, Sridhar knows that somebody accessed his Desktop. He returns and finds them running. He tries to shoot them but accidentally Vidya shoots Sridhar. Khan reaches there and scolds Rana as he wanted Sridhar alive. He reveals that Rana is working for him and they have used Vidya for their motive.
    Vidya is very disturbed after knowing the facts. But when requested by Khan, she hacks Sridhar’s computer to access any lead to that case. Rana felts the coldness of Vidya and his very disappointed. Vidya is successful in tracking a coded cellphone number. This number was none other than IB Chiefs Baskaran’s. On Khan’s requests, Vidya calls Bhaskaran and infoms him that she found his number from the desktop of Sridhar and has documents against him, if he will find her husband then she will hand over them. Bhaskaran tells her that it is the case of local police but after a moment Vidya receives a message from an unknown number conveying her to wait for his call to hand over the sensitive documents , if she wants to see her husband alive.
    Rana also learns from an informer that vidya’s life is in danger and goes to Khan and pleads to stop the mission, but Khan remains unperturbed and tells his assistant to take away mobile from Rana and to keep an eye on him.
    Vidya waits for the call and as instructed goes to Triangular park on the last day of the Durga Puja. Rana runs from the office and is told in the guest house that the lady is on her way to triangular park. Khan with his team reaches triangular park and Rana also runs to triangular park.
    There is a scene of negotiation between Vidya and Damji, where Damji kicks Vidya’s abdomen and points his gun towards Vidya. Vidya removes her artificial abdomen, which she was using to fake her pregnancy and Damji is very surprised noticing it. Just then Vidya pulls her Juda pin( a pin used to tie hair for bun) and pierced it in the feets of Damji and also his neck. Damji is in great pain and accidentally his gun falls down and he runs for his life. Vidya lifts the gun and shoots Damji. When Khan and Rana arrives she flees with the crowd gathered for the puja celebration. She leaves an envelope containing a pen drive with data about bhaskaran and a thankyou note. Rana when introspects realises that Vidya Bagchi and Arnob Bagchi never existed and the lady was hired to kill Damji and she was using them for her motive.
    Bhaskaran was arrested and it was learnt that Vidya was none other than the widow of Arup Basu(former IB agent) who was killed in the gas accident. She came India to avenge her huband death and was helped by retired IB official Bajpayee. Bajapyee praised her and said the task was accomplished by Vidya where many failed previously. Vidya is equated with goddess Durga here.
    Performances:- All the cast of the films have portrayed their part convincingly. The role of the Khan is portrayed so well that it looks like a real life character. Vidya with her flawless performance has made this film worth a watch. Her portrayal of pregnant lady with heavy breathing and walking style looks almost like real. The music is very good. The song Ekla cholo sung by Amitabh Batchan is mesmerising. You will be hooked to the movie and even after it ends you will continue thinking about the whole film.
    Over all, a superb movie worth watching.

    Very well written post Sanchita. As I was reading your review I could visualize the scenes in my mind. This is a very good thriller that keeps you guessing till the last act. The director has unraveled the plot slowly and aptly with real expertise. You described the acts so well with minute details that even who haven't watched this film could relate to it.

    I suggest to you that if you have a blog then post this film review there with a few images. I am pretty sure that you'd get lots of page views for this one and with time it will come up in the first page of the google page rankings.

    Sanchita, I too had seen this movie a couple of months back. Reading your post was like seeing the movie again as your have narrated the story in detail.

    Vidya Balan has acted excellently and the suspense is well maintained till the end.
