Via Darjeeling is a 2008 Indian mystery thriller film directed by Arindam Nandy, starring Kay Kay Menon, Sonali Kulkarni, and Parvin Dabas. The film is set in the picturesque hill station of Darjeeling, and revolves around the mysterious disappearance of a newly married couple who were on their honeymoon. The film opens with a group of friends who are on a road trip to Darjeeling. They stop at a hotel, where they meet a newly married couple, Misha and Arjun (played by Sandhya Mridul and Prroshant Narayannan), who are on their honeymoon. The next day, the couple disappears from their room without a trace, leaving behind their luggage, mobile phones, and passports.

The friends become suspicious of each other, and the local police are unable to solve the case. One of the friends, Rituparno (played by Kay Kay Menon), who is a novelist, decides to investigate the case himself. As he delves deeper into the mystery, he uncovers a web of lies, deceit, and betrayal.

The film moves back and forth in time, revealing the events leading up to the disappearance of the couple. We learn that Misha had a troubled past, and that her marriage was not a happy one. Arjun was a wealthy businessman who was deeply in love with Misha, but she had her own agenda.

The film explores themes of love, loss, and the fragility of human relationships. It also showcases the beauty of Darjeeling, with its misty mountains, lush green valleys, and tea gardens.

The performances by the lead actors are stellar. Kay Kay Menon delivers a nuanced and understated performance as Rituparno, who is haunted by his own demons. Sonali Kulkarni is brilliant as Misha, a complex character who is both vulnerable and manipulative. Parvin Dabas is convincing as Arjun, who is torn between his love for Misha and his duty as a husband.

The film has a haunting soundtrack, with songs that blend seamlessly with the narrative. The cinematography is breathtaking, capturing the beauty and serenity of Darjeeling.

Overall, Via Darjeeling is a well-crafted mystery thriller that keeps the viewer engaged till the end. The film is a must-watch for those who love atmospheric thrillers with a touch of the supernatural.
