What’s Kho Gaye Hum Kahan about?
Three associates, Ahana (Ananya Panday), Imaad (Siddhant Chaturvedi) and Niel (Adarsh Gourav) are similar to another common 25 12 months olds. They’re inseparable and dream, plan and have fun each large second of their lives collectively. They really feel that they’re dwelling their finest life, till actuality strikes and so they come out of the bubble that they’ve themselves created. Are they actually who they fake to be? Is each put up that they put out on social media their actuality? As they arrive to phrases with their actuality vs the one they’ve created for his or her on-line life, additionally they uncover their very own insecurities, vulnerabilities and get via all of it, collectively.
“It is the digital age, lagta hai sab linked hain. Lekin shayad itne akele hum pehle kabhi na the,” Kalki Koechlin’s character Simran says this line in some unspecified time in the future within the film and it just about sums up what Kho Gaye Hum Kahan is all about. It’s a story of friendship at its coronary heart and the casting could not have been extra excellent. Ananya, Siddhant, Adarsh share such an excellent onscreen chemistry as three associates that each one their moments, conversations and conditions change into actual and relatable. Siddhant is a delight to observe and he performs the function of Imaad, the man who appears very chilled out on the skin however is harbouring some actually darkish secrets and techniques inside.
He’s a whole pure and easy. Adarsh retains on stunning us with each function that he does and after Weapons & Gulaabs this 12 months, he impresses once more along with his Neil Pareira in Kho Gaye Hum Kahan. He brings out the feelings of the younger era fantastically the place one is riddled with insecurity, the need to be extra, do extra, questioning oneself Do I’ve sufficient? Am I sufficient? He’s particularly nice within the scenes the place he permits his darkish streak to take over. Ananya Panday is unquestionably the star child to be careful for. She is getting higher and higher with every of her roles. She reveals nice maturity in her portrayal of Ahana, the sensible company enterprise lady, who’s struggling to come back to phrases together with her breakup and making an attempt each trick within the e book to get her love again. Kalki has a small but essential function and she or he makes an affect in her restricted screentime.
Zoya and Reema’s screenplay is slow-paced however at no level does it drag. Watching the film is like studying a e book. It takes its candy time in touching upon varied elements of the net world. From on-line courting, lifetime of influencers, obsession for likes and feedback on social media, stalking, hacking and trolling. Arjun Varain Singh retains it actual in his path, showcasing the starkness of the net and the true world.
The influencer group is big and the way in which they will affect the younger era glued to social media is one thing that wants extra consideration. There may be little time spent on this facet. The character of the influencer Lala aka Laxmi Lalvani performed by Anya Singh is lowered to a caricature. She is so excessive and there’s nothing mentioned about how her posts can affect a follower. In regards to the music, as soon as once more after The Archies by the identical producers and creatives, there’s not a lot to jot down house about.
Kho Gaye Hum Kahan is neither preachy nor does it depart a foul style in your mouth. It’s an sincere try to point out the true life behind the filters on social media. The way it can fill you with hate, angst, frustration and offer you a false feeling of being ‘linked’ whereas in actuality, it’s simply taking you away from all of the issues and all of the individuals who matter, only for some likes and feedback (validation) from anonymous, faceless folks. At no level does Kho Gaye Hum Kahan asks you to give up social media, nevertheless it does power you to cease and take into consideration your social media habits and urges you to attract line.
