Imdb: Kho Gaye Hum Kahan (2023)

Streaming in Netflix

Kho Gaye Hum Kahan (2023) is one of the best films I have watched this year. Even though it’s too early, I would highly recommend this film to all age groups. Even if you don’t love this film as much as I did,

There is something for all of you in this film.

The last 5 years and 15 years have changed mankind and people so much,

This film shows the changes and how it has affected people across all ages and where we are right now in an urban or semi-urban setting in India.

I was instantly reminded of Men, Women, and Children (2014), a film where relationships are explored as really as possible in a technology-driven world. I absolutely loved that film even though it tanked in Box Office and even Critics didn’t show it any love.

As a film, Kho Gaye Hum Kahan (2023) is nowhere near perfect, But it’s real and tries to say something real,

I believe it succeeded in doing just that.

Strong performances from the lead cast and great soundtracks give you an outstanding experience. I personally felt I should single out Adarsh Gourav’s standout performance as Neil Pereira. Although most would consider his role as Balram Halwai in White Tiger as his breakout role, I predict this role would turn out to be more pivotal for Adarsh getting noticed in Bollywood. He showed that he could hold out on his own in a film where established stars like Siddhant Chaturvedi and Ananya Panday also excel. The runtime is just perfect. Not too long and preachy (maybe slightly preachy), and not too quick and shallow either.

I am a huge…huge fan of how the makers handled the last act. Hats off.

It feels great when you feel seen and heard, and that is just what this film does to you and makes you feel, but on a mass scale.

None of us are perfect, people are all inherently flawed, and perhaps that exactly is what makes each person unique and people beautiful.

Verdict: 5/7 stars
