"Take movies, music, poetry out of life & its gone!"

KHOYA KHOYA CHAND (Movie Review By Bobby Sing)

08 Dec, 2007 | Movie Reviews / 2007 & Before

Its an attempted journey into the film world of 60s when writing was an important aspect of films and many writers became directors of their movies. The ambience of the 60's film industry is captured rightly to some extent as its all mostly indoors and vintage cars. But the film does not impress and fails to make an impact. The viewer does not relate to the happenings and cannot feel anything for the characters. The story has its plots pointing towards the life of Guru Dutt, Gulzar & Madhubala.

The script before the interval seems like pieces joined together. It only gets its grip after the interval but till then the audiences have lost hopes. Its as if we are watching a well made documentary on how the films were made in the 60s and how the artists related in their personal lives.
After seeing the flick one is forced to believe that the casting couch existed in the film industry long time back too and everybody had illegitimate relations around them.

Performaces wise Soha Ali Khan tries her best which shows from her effort but she looks too young and immature to play the role. Her act is satisfactory but she lacks the depth demanded by the script. Shiney Ahuja is impressive but gets loud at some places. The best act comes from Saurabh Shukla as the punjabi producer and he looks superb and very enjoyable. The music is good but doesnt have any memorable song. Only the title song scores the highest among the all.

Overall its an average movie with insights on the Indian Film Making System. But surely much more was expected from Sudhir Mishra who gave us "Hazaron Khwaishen Aisee" &
"Is Raat Ki Subah Nahin"

Ratings : 2 Stars
(Go for it if you want to take a look how films were made in the 60's)
