It stars Vidya Balan as Vidya Bagchi, a pregnant woman searching for her missing husband in Kolkata during the festival of Durga Puja, assisted by Satyoki "Rana" Sinha (Parambrata Chatterjee) and Khan (Nawazuddin Siddiqui).

The film also makes several allusions to Satyajit Ray's films such as Charulata (1964), Aranyer Din Ratri (1970) and Joi Baba Felunath (1979). Kahaani was released worldwide on 9 March 2012. Criti
