Plot: Vidya Singh and her crippled daughter Mini lives happily in Chandan Nagore. Mini is the life support of Vidya and she finds joy in doing little things with her daughter, be it playing games or taking a walk. However, life has something else in store for them. Mini gets kidnapped and while rushing to find Mini, Vidya gets knocked down by a car and goes into a coma. Soon, Indrajeet Singh is introduced as the inspector investigating the case. A visit to the victim's home lead to the facts that Vidya had acquired a fake identity. What begins as a simple hit-and-run accident turns into a complicated and thorny case with secrets from the past steadily budding. Indrajeet begins to find out that Vidya is actually Durga Rani Singh who used to work as a clerk in a school in Kalimpong and Mini was a girl from a royal family who was sexually abused by her uncle Mohit. During a debate with Mini's grandmother, Vidya had accidentally killed her. She flew with Mini from there and changed their identity. However, Mohit tracks them down and kidnaps Mini with a help of a policewoman and demands ransom.

Review: The movie is quite appealing in the first half and moves at a fast pace leaving the audience puzzled. The audience themselves have to join the dots to solve the mystery. However , the second half of the movie could not sustain the tension and it suddenly becomes predictable and slow. The cinematography in Kalimpog was marvelous and added a soft touch to the movie. When it came to acting, Vidya Balan, like always, performed gracefully and emoted all her emotions effortlessly, making her a sheer joy to watch. Arjun Rampal as the cop did a wonderful job too, and proved himself to be a fantastic actor once again. The rest of the cast made the movie a must watch too. It is a must watch if you are a fan of Vidya Balan's acting.
