Director Sujoy Ghosh stars Vidya Balan as the lead character in the movie, ‘ Kahaani’. Vidya Balan fakes her pregnancy and tries to find her missing husband in the film. The storyline is very intense. It's a perfect blend of entertainment, and is full of beautiful twists and turns. Vidya Balan, who was outstanding in ‘Dirty Picture’, also looked flawless in this movie.


The story begins with the entry of Vidya Bagchi (Vidya Balan) in the town of Joy, Kolkata. She files a complaint of her missing husband, Arnab, who came to India a few weeks ago and went missing. A police officer, Rana (Parambrata Chatterjee), helps her out to find her spouse. There is a character named Damji, who reassembled Vidya's husband, Arnab Bagchi. Vidya Bagchi's search drew the attention of the IB officers, Bhaskaran K. ( Dhritiman Chatterjee) and his deputy, Khan ( Nawazuddin Siddiqui). Khan warned Vidya, but she still continues her search. Furthermore, they deal with many corrupt officers and Vidya retrieves some documents, which lead to the arrest of the guilty officer.

The whole thing guides to a conclusion that Vidya faked her pregnancy and used the police and the IB to accomplish her mission. Later on, the twist was that there is no such Vidya and Arnab. Actually, Vidya was a widow of Arup Basu ( Abir Chatterjee) who was killed in a gas attack.
