KAHAANI is a Hindi feature film which instead of releasing on Friday released on Thursday 8th March, 2012, due to Holi. This film has been directed by Sujoy Ghosh and falls under the genre of Drama/ Thriller.

Story : The story revolves around Vidya Venkatesan Bagchi (Vidya Balan) who is the protagonist of this film. She lives in London and is married and is also a software engineer. She is a Tamil but is married to a Bengali. She is 7 months pregnant. But she is living her life in tension because her husband, who had come to India, Kolkata, has gone missing. She doesn't know where her husband has vanished and how to find him out. Finally, she visits India, Kolkata to find out her husband Arnab Bagchi.

But it is almost impossible to find out her husband.

What is the mystery of Vidya's husband? Why has he gone missing? Where is he? Is he alive or dead?? All these queries are answered in the rest of the film.

Acting : Vidya Balan proved in THE DIRTY PICTURE that she can do glamorous roles. In this film she proves that she can do such type of roles too as effectively. In fact she has proved earlier in her films such as PAREENITA that she is a superb actress. She has completely justified her role in this film and needs applause for her performance. Rests of the actors are also okay.
