About the movie
The film is about three friends Ahana (Ananya Pandey), Imad (Siddhant Chaturvedi) and Neil Perera (Adarsh ​​Gaurav). As the film begins, stand-up comedian Imad tells something about the three. The story of the film talks about the lifestyle of today’s generation and the impact of social media on it. Ahana and Imad are flatmates, but they are not in a relationship. Ahana is in a relationship with Rohan. Neil Pereira is a childhood friend of both of them, he is a gym trainer. All three are together and all three are stuck in their own problems.

There is another character in the film who can also be called the main character of the film. He has no face but still affects the lives of the three. The name of this important role of the film is ‘Social Media’. Emad is a stand-up comedian, but he’s addicted to Tinder. He is afraid of emotional intimacy.

Ahana has a job, but her relationship is in jeopardy. In such a situation, Ahana, troubled by the feeling of insecurity, stalks her boyfriend on social media and tries to find out about him. Neil Pereira is a gym trainer who can’t tell the world about his ‘so-called’ relationship. He vents his anger by creating fake profiles and posting lewd comments on random people’s pictures. The entire film revolves around social media and talks about the problems and complexities associated with this addiction of today’s generation in a meaningful way.

Acting

  • Apart from the story telling method, the most important part of this movie is the actors of the movie who have played their roles very well. First let’s talk about Ananya Pandey. Viewers have seen glimpses of Ananya’s acting in her earlier films. His role in this film brings out his acting skills properly. The role of a girl struggling with insecurities suits her. It will not be wrong to say that she is going to go far in films.
  • Talking about Siddhant Chaturvedi, he is very versatile. He has never done such a role. He has got the body language of a stand-up comedian right. From the role of MC Sher in ‘Gullyboy’ to the role of a poor cricketer in ‘Inside Age’ and now as Imad in ‘Kho Gaye Hum Kaan’, he has been seen in a wide variety of roles. He hopes to join the list of best actors in the future.
  • Now talking about Adarsh ​​Gaurav, seeing him as a gym trainer, you would not be able to accept that this is the same actor who played the role of a small village-to-city man in ‘White Tiger’. . If one wants to know when and how to express himself according to the needs of the scene in the film, this film by Adarsh ​​Gaurav can serve as a tutorial for him.
  • Kalki Koechlin also does a good job in a small role in the film.

Highlights of the movie

  • The film is directed by Arjun Varan Singh, who has previously worked as an assistant director in Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boy. The story of the film is written by Reema Kagati and Zoya Akhtar. This is the reason why the influence of Zoya Akhtar is visible in the film while watching the film. The film is entirely styled by Zoya Akhtar. So if you are fond of his movies then you can watch this movie.
  • The film maintains the same colloquial language that is typical of the Gen Z generation. The use of words like ‘Yas’, Jinx, Slay, #OOTN, Sup helps the youth connect with the film.
  • There is no drama in the film. While watching the film, it seems that this story is ours or that of the people around us. Both the writer and director of the film understand the problems of today’s generation very well.
  • The film portrays the problems of the Gen Z generation caught in the trap of social media in a very meaningful way and does not make fun of them while doing so.
  • How does social media affect people’s lives? This is the theme of the entire film. A character in the film is afraid of intimacy, so he searches for new partners every day through Tinder. While another wants to connect emotionally with his girlfriend but is unable to because of social media. A third character stalks her boyfriend on social media with the help of a fake ID and becomes obsessed with the world she sees on the phone screen. It is all well put together.
  • A dialogue in the film sums up the digital age – ‘It seems like everyone is well connected, but in reality we’ve never been so alone’.
  • Ultimately, despite being a great film, the film manages to connect with a niche audience, but the Tier 2 and Tier 3 audiences above 40 may fail to connect with the film.
