The one film I recommend you to watch right now is "Kho Gaye Hum Kahan" on Netflix. It is a slice-of-life film that casually explores the challenges faced by today's urban youth. It’s not preachy, but practical in showing us the problems of its protagonists. Following the lives of three best friends - Imad, a commitment-phobic stand-up comic; Ahaana, an MBA professional, nursing a recent heartbreak; and Neil, a middle-class gym trainer with aspirations - the film unfolds as they navigate personal issues that test their business partnership and friendship.

Penned by Reema Kagti and Zoya Akhtar, debut director Arjun Varain Singh nicely captures the pulls and pressures faced by the youth in today’s digital age. The film's strength lies in its dialogue and the Gen Z tone, shedding light on the facade of Instagram influencers - it does question why would we be happy seeing some good looking bloke or broad living it up on instagram and getting all things for free or even getting paid to enjoy life.Words like "Tinderalla '' are used with contextually cool vibes.

"Kho Gaye Hum Kahan" strikes a balance between being easy-breezy and tension-filled, portraying the day-to-day lives of its characters. It’s realistic, Clearly, not every story needs major twists and turns or larger-than-life adventures. Instead, it thrives on the epic adventure of emotions and relationships called life.

It all comes together pretty well although one can argue that the problems and conflicts in the lives of these 3 friends are largely privileged and solutions are kind of superficial, but the story does make a connection with your heart because it uses relatable situations and plots about complicated human relationships featuring love, lust and deep friendships that transcends genders
