Parineeta is a Vidhu Vinod Chopra film, marking the debut of Vidya Balan in Bollywood. Vidya’s performance in the film is pitch-perfect, sensitive, and subtly nuanced. She did not give a debutante performance, but rather that of a powerful actor. Right from her first flick, Vidya impressed most film makers in Bollywood. The girl didn’t really require dialogues as she did all the talking with her big bright eyes.

The film’s second half completely belonged to her. Her histrionics performance in the film won million hearts. The last 20 minutes of the film sees Vidya setting the screen ablaze with a mind blowing dance number.
This film completely belongs to Vidya Balan. Her body language in the film is what keeps the film running. She is tender, brittle, cunning and cool – all rolled into a bundle. The actress won the Filmfare Critics Award for Best Actress, that year.
No One Killed Jessica
Though the film starred Rani Mukherjee, a very popular and experienced Bollywood actress, Vidya Balan’s performance stood out. She did her part so very well. her hesitant body language, her faith, her helplessness, her rage, her sorrow and her gratitude, she portrayed all these emotions superbly.
The Dirty Picture
Vidya Balan disappears; it’s Silk Smitha that emerges on screen. This shows how well the actress got into the character. She lives, breathes and executes the character to the ‘T’. Vidya indisputably steals the show. The actress deservedly bags almost all awards of the year 2011.
Roping in Vidya Balan as the main protagonist was a master stroke. The actress is the hero of the film. Vidya simply immerses herself in the character. In short, Kahaani wouldn’t have been possible without Vidya.
