Kahaani 2 is not for the faint hearted.

Cast:Vidya Balan,Arjun Rampal,Tunisha Sharma.

Direction: Sujoy Ghosh.

Plot : Kahaani 2 is about Vidya Sinha(Vidya balan) and her daughter,Mini(Tunisha Sharma).Vidya aka Bidda is a single mother.Things go for a toss,when Mini goes missing.Later,Vidya Sinha,gets a call from the kidnapper,who has kidnapped Mini.The rest of the story is a high pressure race to get Mini back.
Nutshell view for the time crunched :
 +ve: Engaging,Thrilling mystery.
-ve: Use of a lot of Bengali language without subtitles.

My views in detail : I decided to watch Kahaani 2,assuming it was a prequel to Kahaani. But,the reality is that the two are not interconnected.i waited till the end hoping to find a connection between the two.Kahaani 2 does outsmart Kahaani.

Kahaani 2 starts with a glimpse into the life of Vidya Sinha,and Mini Sinha,her daughter,who is confined to the bed,as the bottom part of her body is paralyzed. Mystery starts within 5 mins into the movie,when Mini goes missing and Vidya goes into a coma when she is hit down by a car.
The rest of the story is told in the form of flashbacks,which is being read out of Vidya’s diary.Kahaani 2 deals with a very sensitive topic in a bold manner.It has touched certain areas in a way that has not been covered in other movies before.Vidya Balan’s act made me cringe with fear.I am deliberately not delving into the topic,to avoid a spoiler for those who are yet to watch Kahaani 2.
Many of the scenes are creepy,some had me shout out cuss words,while I closed my eyes for a few.
The first half is shot in picturesque Kalimpong.It looks a lot like Ooty.
I liked Arjun Rampal as Inderjeet,he uses a lot of dark humor in the movie.
I am not going to write much about the other supporting characters,coz I don’t want to let out the suspense.It took a while for the climax to make sense to me.
I would recommend Kahani 2 for those without a heart ailment or a high blood pressure.

Goof up:
In one of the scenes,the time on the clock and the time on the police inspector’s watch,are drastically different.
