Kahaani (2012)

Director: Sujoy Ghosh. Cast: Vidya Balan, Parambrata Chatterjee, Dhritiman Chatterjee. 122 min. India. Drama/Thriller.

Two years after a major subway terrorist attack, pregnant lady arrives in Kolkata in search of her recently disappeared husband. Very well-directed and edited Hollywood-style Indian thriller, which was a sleeper hit in India. The greatest impact comes from the sudden twist at the end, but if you've seen a few movies, you'll know the twist is adapted from a somewhat notable Angelina Jolie movie, and a very notable Kevin Spacey movie. I won't say which ones.

PS: This is available for streaming on Netflix.

  1. I really enjoyed this one and without your Blog I would never have heard of it, so thank you very much. Your blog is my main source of what to watch!

    My favourite character in the movie was the unfit assassin, he was cold but amusing, I will be recommending this to a few friends...

    1. Thank you, Toast. My honor. You're very welcome.

      If you haven't seen "The Usual Suspects", I highly recommend it. It's streaming on Netflix, and it'll blow you away.
