Kahaani Trailer

Kahaani isn’t what you’d call a major movie – it’s more a taut little genre exercise – but the highest compliment we can give Ghosh is that he takes a host of clichés and makes a film that looks compellingly one-of-a-kind, at least in an Indian context.

The Hindu

So despite the loopholes, Kahaani fulfills what it sets out to do and keeps you hooked and guessing

Hindustan Times

The film delivers on its promise, and keeps you guessing until the end. It's a delicious thriller

The first half has some genuinely scary and sinister moments, but the ending feels more clumsy than menacing

Sly, gripping and taut, Kahaani is much too enjoyable to find flaws

This 'Kahaani' overall, has enough for a sit-down-and-watch.

Indian Express

A strong protagonist and the intrigue surrounding her makes this Vidya Balan film worth a watch

Story, technique, and performances are all in sync to produce a cracking film

Mumbai Mirror

There’s nothing excessive in Kahaani; everything is just right — the pace, the length, the drama

A thrilling mind game you don't mind losing

The Hindu

If story is what you seek from a film, Kahaani is a must-watch

Times of India

Racy as well as thought-provoking, that steps bravely off the well-trodden path with both the heroine and the city at its centre, and that keeps you glued to your seat


A fast, fun, fearless thriller

India Today

Kahaani lives up to its expectation and comes across as a potent example of intelligent cinema


The story totally grips you and leaves you at a dramatic high

Times of India

Kahaani works big time. The movie triumphs in evoking emotions. You experience compassion, resentment, defenselessness and triumph at a variety of stages
