“This version of Kahaani isn’t much of a mystery, but will still blow you away!”
There is a movie just released called Befikre which means"not worried". This movie could have been called "Fikre" because everyone is the worried type. Vidya Balan is worried she might not get her daughter back, the daughter in a wheelchair is worried if she will survive. Arjun Rampal and his boss are both worried that they may not get a promotion if they don't solve this case. And lastly I think the producer is worried whether this mediocre film will give good returns.The film is a suspenseful story of a mother's quest for her daughter and her travails in the process. Any further details will be considered a spoiler.The film is simplistic to the core and shot mostly on locations in West Bengal.The characters are middle class real down to earth including pot bellied policemen talking in heavy Bengali accent in dull drab police stations. The narrative is laid back and steady keeping the interest level of the audience just about to acceptable levels. The subject of child abuse is well dealt with good measure of realism. Competent camerawork and a suitable musical score are the plus points of the film. Director Sujoy Ghosh keeps the narrative going at a leisurely pace just adequate to sustain audience interest. One keeps hoping for some slickness in the treatment but that never happens and I found the climax also to be a tame affair. Vidya Balan plays a troubled mother and a harassed woman pushed to the corner by scheming and plotting people all around her. A good portion of the film shows her with a black/ reddish eye which is scary. Arjun Rampal as the police inspector fails to put in the intensity required in this suspense story and I think he is probably miscast. As the lecherous uncle and the child molester Jugaj Hansraj has done a comparably good job. The movie could have been taut, riveting edge of the seat thriller but regrettably it isn't.
