Vidya Sinha (Vidya Balan) and her daughter Mini live peacefully in the sleepy town of Chandan Nagore. Vidya’s life revolves around Mini. Her greatest joys are the little things she does with her daughter like playing little games, going for walks, cleaning the house together etc.
However, life has other plans; as Mini is kidnapped and while trying to locate her daughter, Vidya meets with a terrible accident landing her in a state of coma at the hospital. When Inspector Inderjeet Singh (Arjun Rampal) arrives at the hospital in a response to the hit and run case, little does he expect the turn of events.

Kahaani 2 Movie Review :
Kahaani 2 (2016) Movie Review By Gulfnews
Director Sujoy Ghosh has pulled off one of the most gripping openings scenes in a Hindi film to kick off his mystery, Kahaani 2.Some of the twists in the second half may seem predictable, but it’s buoyed by some fantastic acting performances. Still, that shouldn’t stop you from enjoying this dark thriller. Also, watch out for director Ghosh’s finesse in bringing out the middle class milieu of West Bengal.
Rating : 4/5
Kahaani 2 (2016) Movie Review By Indian Express
Kahaani 2 has one of the best first halves I’ve seen in a while. Not one frame is wasted as the set-up is introduced and teased out.Post-interval, Kahaani 2, which ranges from Kalimpong to Chandan Nagar to Kolkata, becomes a different film, reminding you in bits of the Bollywood Teen, and the Hollywood Kill Bill. After Kahaani, which took us into a fresh space, this one disappoints. If Ghosh does plan on making a third, he’ll have to up his game considerably.
Rating : 2/5
