Kahaani Hindi Blu Ray
A must watch 2012 Bollywood Hindi Film on Blu Ray
Directed by Sujoy Ghosh Hindi Film Kahaani rightly lives up to its name and reinstates the fact that the core criterion for a decent film is a strong story. And if that story is in competent hands, you don't need anything else. No big stars, songs, budget or even a customary male lead. For a (pleasant) change, the script is indeed the hero here

Kahaani Hindi movie (Blu Ray) begins with a poison gas attack on a Kolkata Metro Rail compartment, killing the passengers on board of the train. Two years after the incident, a London-based pregnant software engineer Vidya Bagchi (Vidya Balan), arrives in Kolkata during Durga Puja. She is in search of her missing husband, Arnab Bagchi and is offered support from Satyaki "Rana" Sinha (Parambrata Chatterjee), a junior police officer from Kalighat Police Station. Although Vidya claims that Arnab came to Kolkata on an assignment for the National Data Center (NDC), initial probes suggest that no person with that name was working in NDC, or stayed in the guesthouse that Arnab had described to Vidya during their phone conversations.
Agnes D'mello, head of human resources at NDC, suggests to Vidya that her husband resembled Milan Damji (Indraneil Sengupta), an ex-employee of NDC. She tells Vidya that she would try to obtain his records from NDC's old office. Before she could do so, however, Agnes is killed by Bob Biswas (Saswata Chatterjee), an assassin who works undercover as a life insurance agent. Vidya, assisted by Rana, breaks into the old office of NDC to collect documents on Damji. They barely manage to escape a close brush with Bob who has also been ordered to search for the documents.
Meanwhile, the attempts to obtain Damji's records rattle two high ranking Intelligence Bureau (IB) officials: the IB chief K. Bhaskaran (Dhritiman Chatterjee) and his deputy Khan (Nawazuddin Siddiqui). Khan arrives in Kolkata and reveals that Damji was an IB agent who had gone rogue and was responsible for the poison-gas attack on the Kolkata Metro. Khan warns Vidya not to get involved into the matter as he suspects a mole in the system. Vidya, fearing that Arnab's resemblance to Milan has led him into trouble, continues her relentless search. Bhaskaran tries to get help from a top retired IB officer Colonel Bajpai (Darshan Jariwala), but he declines to take up the matter.
The residential address on Damji's record lead Vidya and Rana to a dilapidated flat. The errand boy of the neighborhood tea stall, Poltu, informs them that the resident of that flat occasionally had a visitor. On Vidya's request Paresh, an artist and a police-informer, provides them with some details about Damji being wounded about two years ago and being treated by a certain Dr. Ganguly. But before Dr. Ganguly could provide them with further information, he is killed by Bob.
The Durga Puja festival plays a prominent role in the unfolding of events. Pictured here is an idol of Goddess Durga.
Poltu then identifies R. Sridhar, a technology officer of NDC, as the person who had visited Damji's flat. Sridhar instructs Bob to kill Vidya. After a failed attempt to kill her in crowded alleyways, Bob is run over by a tempo during a chase. Examination of Bob's mobile phone leads them to an IP address sending instructions to kill her. Vidya and Rana break into Sridhar's office to verify his IP address. However, Sridhar is alerted electronically, and returns back to his office pursuing the duo. However, following a heated confrontation, Vidya shoots Sridhar accidentally. Khan is upset as he wanted Sridhar alive. Khan reveals that Rana had been working for him all along, using Vidya as a tool. Although not happy at being used as a ploy, Vidya agrees to help Khan on his request. Further examination of Sridhar's computer reveals a code which is deciphered to be Bhaskaran's phone number. As per Khan's instructions, Vidya calls Bhaskaran to tell him that she has got hold of sensitive documents from Sridhar's office and if Bhaskaran helps Vidya find her husband, she would hand over the documents to Bhaskaran. Bhaskaran nonchalantly tells Vidya to contact the local police as he is not associated with this. However, within a few minutes, Vidya gets a call from an unknown number, warning her that she should hand over the documents to the caller if she wishes to see her husband alive.
As per the instruction of the caller, Vidya, goes to meet Damji at Triangular Park during the final day of the Durga Puja celebrations. Rana learns that Khan has risked Vidya's life, as Damji will inevitably kill her as she knows his identity. He follows her surreptitiously along with Khan. Between their conversations and negotiations about the documents and the whereabouts of her husband, Damji attacks Vidya hitting her in the abdomen. He points at Vidya to kill her, but is immediately thwarted by the prosthetic abdomen which Vidya has been using to fake her pregnancy. She kills a baffled Damji and flees in the crowd before the arrival of police, leaving a thank you note for Rana and a pen drive containing data from Sridhar's computer. Rana, based on several past incidences, deduces to Khan that no Vidya or Arnab Bagchi ever existed. It is she who has been using the police and IB for her motive. The data from the drive leads to Bhaskaran's arrest.
Vidya, is revealed as the widow of Arup Basu (Abir Chatterjee), an IB officer and a colleague of Damji, who was killed in the poison-gas attack, while trying to locate the poisonous bottle. In her mission, Vidya was helped by Colonel Bajpai, who suspected the involvement of some top IB officials in the attack. Meanwhile, Rana watches a candle light vigil to those who died in the attack, just as the idol of Goddess Durga is submerged.
