Kahaani 2 Movie Review: Vidya Balan's Captivating Performance Makes It a Must Watch
A still from 'Kahaani 2' via Youtube.

Ever since the trailer of Kahaani 2: Durga Rani Singh has been out, the viewers have been a bit confused about actor Vidya Balan’s role. While many feel, as shown in the film’s trailer, she essays the role of Vidya Sinha, who is in dire need of help to track down her daughter’s kidnapper, others think she plays Durga Rani Singh who essays the role of fugitive on the run for abducting and killing her own child. Since Kahaani 2: Durga Rani Singh hits the theatres at a time when we have grown bored of run-of-the-mill projects featuring either action, comedy or romantic stories, viewers’ expectations are bound to be high. And because it is the second instalment of the 2012 blockbuster Kahaani, the interest amongst the viewers is both genuine and forceful.

Featuring Vidya and Arjun Rampal in key roles, the story of Kahaani 2: Durga Rani Singh is expected to hit you hard and leave an indelible impact on your mind. As suggested by the trailer, the film’s story revolves around a woman who rushes to save her daughter after she receives a threatening call. She meets with an accident because of which she lands in a coma. Interestingly Rampal, who is addition to the film’s cast, gets to investigate the case. What begins as a simple hit-and-run accident turns into an intricate and thorny case with secrets from the past surfacing.

Since Kahaani was a thriller with a powerful script and some interesting/memorable characters, will Kahaani 2: Durga Rani Singh be equally impactful? Will the film be as intriguing as the film’s posters and teasers? Will Vidya Balan come across as an unusual protagonist, much like the previous film?

A sequel to 2012 film Kahaani, this film is eagerly awaited and the intriguing posters and teasers shared by the makers of the film have kept the anticipation high. Our curiosity to know more about Durga Rani Singh, the character played by Vidya in the film, is at all-time high after watching this trailer. Will Sujoy Ghosh outclass Kahaani - his best work so far? Divya Pal is inside the theater to get you all the answers.
