Kahaani - Sujoy Ghosh

Quite enjoyed it on the whole, although the ending was really strange, almost like the director, writer and editor together fell ill due to some plague which hit the unit, and they outsourced it to mainstream 80s bollywood to finish off the last 10 mins.

But anyhow, I found the remaining parts quite paisa vasool, good pace, good acting, a feel of the city, and adept direction and editing. Vidya comes to our city of joy, looking for her missing husband, and then we go down the journey with her. As the stories come apart, one thread at a time, you begin wondering how many kahaani's are going on.

I hadn't guessed the ending, which perhaps is just as well, because guessing it would have removed half the fun, ( as it did in a wednesday, where i guessed almost right in the beginning) . There were plot holes as one could call them, if you really took apart the kahaani, things that were niggling at the back of your brain, which if you choose to ignore and go with the flow. Agreed fully with this description from Anupama Chopra - "Kahaani is a nifty thriller with an enjoyment quotient that is indirectly proportionate to how long you spend thinking about the plot."

Overall, good fun, good time pass. Definitely worth a watch.

Ah, and how can I complete without mentioning the insurance agent - whoever came up with that casting , utter utter respect!
