Kho Gaye Hum Kahan is one of Netflix’ most promising and talked-about upcoming films. After Archies’ disastrous reception, with most being displeased by the film’s weak plot adaptation and several miscasts, a lot was riding on Kho Gaye Hum Kahan’s review from critics and fans alike. The film is centered around Gen Zs who are lonelier than ever today, despite being constantly connected on social media.

Kho Gaye Hum Kahan traces the triumphs and defeats of three friends, Imaad, Ahana, and Neil, essayed by Siddhant Chaturvedi, Ananya Pandey, and Adarsh Gourav respectively. Imaad is a commitment-phobe with a tragic childhood who fills his inner void by serial Tinder-dating.


Ahana, on the other hand, desperately wants to gain her ex-boyfriend’s attention, who has left her for another hottie. She constantly stalks them on Instagram, overcompensating her own insecurities by posting excessively. As for Neil, he is a gym trainer who tries to live above his means and pass it off as normal, despite battling insecurities and financial crises within.

Netflix premiered Kho Gaye Hum Kahan on 26th December 2023, and the reviews were quite unlike the ones the trailer received. While most people were worried about a privileged, trash-talking film that preaches the perils of social media while being too self-absorbed to step out of it. The film proved all wrong, by inviting an almost unanimous positive review from fans and viewers on X, formerly Twitter.

Many enjoyed the film for its fun and emotional plot, without resorting to preaching and sanctimony. As most filmmakers tend to overdo films on mental health and the impacts of mobile phones, or include undue or unrealistic characteristics, without realizing the same, Kho Gaye Hum Kahan hits the right notes for avoiding the path.

Most users found the film poignant and highly relevant to the current perils that haunt the footsteps of the youth, online.

And most intriguing of all, is all the praise Ananya Pandey has received for evolving as a performer and making smart decisions regarding her roles, by not attempting to play outside her acting zone.
