Kahaani was a low budget film released in 2012, helmed by Sujoy Ghosh and produced by Viacom 18. The film tells the story of a pregnant software engineer from London, who comes to Kolkata to search for her missing husband. The nail-biting thriller with a unique plot, combined with superior directorial, acting and editing skills made the film acquire its cult status and gain both critical and commercial success.
As much as the film won critical acclaim for Balan’s performance, it also propelled forward the career of then-lesser known actor Nawazuddin Siddique who shot to fame with his supporting role as an eccentric cop in the film. With the film bagging 5 filmfare awards and 3 national awards, that year, Balan received the filmfare award for best actress while Ghosh walked away with the award for the best director. Siddique was awarded a special jury award during the national awards for his performance.
The national award winning film has set the bar too high with its first part. It now remains to be seen if the sequel meets these expectations or not.
