Arjun Varain Singh’s directorial venture ‘Kho Gaye Hum Kahan’ is a testament to his skill and vision. He beautifully encapsulated the essence of relationships in this digital era.
Kho Gaye Hum Kahan is about three friends (Neil, Ahana and Imaad). They fight with their battles and traumas. One is a gym freak, second is a creative business mind while the last one, the funny guy. It’s a story for today’s modern people, particularly those who live and breathe in the vast, demanding world of social media and the Internet.
Kho Gaye Hum Kahan is a sincere, sympathetic account of the triumphs, difficulties and narratives in general. It emphasised on the positive aspects of the virtual platforms as well as the negative impacts which may influence our lives.
First part is good and it is all relatable to the topic, though not in the exact manner. After the halfway, it feels a bit dragged but interest wasn’t lose, primarily because of predictable end. But the message the Kho Gaye Hum Kahan is loud and clear. Generations, be it millenials or Gen Z, should all take away something from this film. Remember, at the end of the day in this world of insecurities and comparision, it is important to be grateful, be close to friends and smile.
The overall goodness in the writing credits goes to four people – Arjun Varain Singh who also directs, Zoya Akhtar, Reema Kagti, Yash Sahai. Especially when it comes through the depiction of the trio’s friendship.
The Cast of the Kho Gaye Hum Kahan is on point. Adarsh Gaurav gives his best performance. He is the top performer in the trio of protagonists. Siddhant Chaturvedi carries his complex character with different layers brilliantly. Ananya Pandey almost looks like she’s playing herself. She simply fits seamlessly into her role.
