Positives

Cast - VIdya maathram alla ellarum kidukki - rana, khan, insurance officer, chatterje, payyanmar ellam superb

screenplay - BRILLIANT !!

Direction Editing Camera BG ellam onninonnu mecham

music - used beautifully, esp the big b song ans Usha uthup song

KOLKkata - another + ve in the film, a silent yet imp char in the film, captured magnificently too

Negatives

slight Inspirations frm film like changeling, traitor/anwar...

a must watch for all, its not at all slow, its entertaining, its thrilling, the climax twist will make ur jaw drop and stand up & clap, its not just a vidya show, its an allround winner

hmmmm not the climax.the entire story movie is adapted from "taking lives".but they not copy frame to frame.they take the plot and developed.in taking lives no flashbacks,the story goes in straight line,but in kahani the "reason" is shown in flashback.
any way its a good movie,very good adaption and they know how to got inspire or to adopt.not like our great Malayalam directors :) ....

( After clicking above links,....allow 2 min to fully open,.. before you scroll down half the way,...the page )



( if page is overtaken by any ad page,.. be patient,.. and look in the upper right corner of that ad page,..... and at the count down of zero,... click " Skip Ad " .
Once the movie starts on yr monitor's FULL screen,.... ther's no obstruction.
Also, if you play on laptop,........ you may also hook up the laptop to that flat wall screen TV,.....and watch with the family the full size of TV )

Kahaani : Ok folks, just saw it. Cool one, Watch it. ( Below is my personal opinion )




An another gem by Vidhya. An another feather in the cap after No one killed Jessica and DP.


A very good, short budget movie, an exciting thriller, suspense, and still it holds you through out in the chair, ( nicely directed, and the one, a long time,..after 100 Days of Madhuri )
and that's what proves that,.......
why the directors need not to spend millions after studio-sets, humbug violence, burning bridges and buildings,... and ultimately,.. multi starrer junk movies like Agnipath, Ra-one, Rawan, or Yuvraj and such,.. with unwanted songs,
fake studios, string-wires,...camera and humbug computerized digital actions-art, Or,.. no need to even take any clothes away from female members at all, with low cut lingerie,......... be it Munni, Sheila or Jalebi bayi,...



Movie is a family-watch clean, with no cursing, NO bed-bath-rape-kiss scenes or any such cheapo act, just to raise the box-office,....


No other well-known stars is in this movie,.... so its just Vidhya Vidhya and Vidhya,… It's a Vidhya's Movie without any famous one in it,... like Ameetji sings,... " Tame ekla chalo re,.. " ( You walk by yr own, without any companion,.. )


A good movie and cool suspense and exciting thriller, keeping you thinking all the way,....'what next' !


No junkie – diversion songs at all, and movie picks up from the very beginning, gets on the track so fast,... and holds ya till its end, not letting you go anywhere.


Had seen some sort of this kind of movie in the past like 100 Days – suspense by Madhuri,.. and Naina – search investigation by Urmila, and a little similar one recent Abhisek's suspense movie Game, to some extent , also Nana's Shagrid,..
Other more or less same line similar be A Wednesday and aamir,..


Just see it. It’s exciting and not boring, at least.


Would not unfold the suspense,........ just see it, and the movie lets you thinking all the way, and the end is smthg different than what so you had thought, up till now.


Hats off to the direction line, and once again it beats the other expensive junks like Agnipath, Action Replay, Yuvraj, Rawan, or Ra-one.
I would prefer to watch this movie on DVD-Blu ray and not in cinema theaters, since at certain sequences you may prefer to rewind the tape a little bit and catch it once more, if anythg you missed in dialect, or diff. persons been introduced with short dialects.


Overall,...a Good movie and Enjoyed.

If you liked 100 days and Chocolate , A wednesday, aamir,.. then this is in -line next one, a lil better too.

A Interruption review of Kahaani
Theatre:EKM Padma
Time:6 PM
Status:40%

Yadoru planum undayrnila ennale kahani kaanan,bt ente friend arun vilichu ticket edukate enu chodchu.enna pnne kandu kalayam ennu karuthi..
What i felt a feel gud movie allathe gem onnum aay enku tonyila..

About the movie

Movie starts with a man(looks lyk a police officer :winkglasses:) was killed by inhaling toxic gas which was meant to terror attack by someone.Then after some scenes here comes our lady superstar vidya.She comes from london and she is insearch of his missing husband.Kolkatta became totally a new xperience for her.Will she finds here husband?wat was actually happened to her husband...all these questions will answer at the second half.

Verdict:Hit in North

NB:The film goes on similar track of anwar and traitor.Its not a fault bt i wondered y anwar and kolkatta news rejected in our theatres???:?
