The best kind of sequels are one which take a story forward, and not present the same story in a recycled form. Kahaani 2 is one such trailer that, much like Kahaani, piques your interested right from the beginning.

The reason for this is familiarity but not over-familiarity.

This is the same woman who took us on a wild goose chase around Kolkata in the first film. I still remember how popular Kahaani was. It was made at a shoe-string budget of Rs 9 crore and managed to gross close to 75 crores at the domestic box office.

A screen grab from the trailer.

The reason for this is because Sujoy Ghosh had a solid story in hand, and a great actor in Vidya Balan.

All of this is there in Kahaani 2, as well. The events in this sequel start much after the first film. Durga Rani Singh (we assume that is Vidya's real name but you never know) has a child now and the trailer begins with her being involved in a hit and run case. She slips into a coma, and a police officer (Arjun Rampal) tracks her case using her diary entries.

Through the entries, he learns about her daughter, about that fact that she was embroiled in a kidnapping and murder case and was trying to escape to London.

What happens next? We'll only know when the film releases on 2 December.

But we welcome this Sujoy Ghosh, Vidya Balan combination. Bring on the thrill!
