Trivia

Sujoy Ghosh was going to direct the film in 2014 under the title "Durga Rani Singh". At the time, he had signed Irrfan Khan and Vidya Balan. Vidya then opted out and Kangana Ranaut was brought in to replace her. Yet, due to delays both Irrfan and Kangana left the film. That's when the director decided to retitle the film as Kahaani 2 and bring back Vidya Balan. See more »

Kahaani​ was the mother of all stories then Kahaani 2​ is the child of old Kahaani.
3 December 2016 | by prafullasrivastavSee all my reviews

Sujoy Ghosh failed to achieve the level of thriller of first one however it was worth watching Cine Maa​ for Vidya Balan​ and Arjun Rampal. Sujoy Ghosh successfully delivered Child Abuse issue with great message like we have seen glimpse in Highway movie from Alia Bhat. Script need little more surprise elements in second half as this one was totally predictable one. Supporting roles of Jugal Hansraj , Manini Chadha and cute Tunisha Sharma were good. Music is another weak point as you will badly miss Ekla Chalo Re type song from Big B.

If Kahaani​ was the mother of all stories then Kahaani 2​ is the child of Kahaani.
