LOST Movie Review

After its World premiere at the Chicago South Asian Film Festival on September 22, 2022, and  Asian premiere at the 53rd International Film Festival of India, Goa, Lost is now streaming on ZEE5. Yami Gautam is back with another excellent performance after A Thursday and Dasvi, this time as a crime journalist. Lost is inspired by true events. Directed by National Award winner Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury, Lost starts on a promising note but seems to have lost at the climax.


Lost Story

Yami Gautam Lost Review

Set in Kolkata, Vidhi Sahani (Yami Gautam), a crime journalist, lives with her maternal grandfather (Pankaj Kapur). A young minority artist, Ishaan Bharti (Tushar Pandey), who loves to do theatres in Kolkata, goes missing one day. Ishaan loves Ankita Chauhan (Pia Bajpayee), who is an ambitious girl. Ishaan’s sister and mother helplessly search for him. Even police are not taking any interest in finding the lost man. Vidhi learns about the missing boy and gets into the case to find the truth. Ishaan has been tagged as a member of radical Maoist group. As Vidhi gets deeper into the case, she discovers that Ishan’s relationship with Ankita has been kept out of the investigation as her links with politician Varman (Rahul Khanna). Has Ishaan joined a radical group? Is he alive or not? How will Vidhi find the truth about the lost man? Watch the film to find out.


Lost Review

Pankaj Kapur Lost

Yami Gautam is proving time and time again that she is one of the most talented actresses in Bollywood in recent times. Her performance in A Thursday, Dasvi, and now in Lost is remarkable. She is the soul of the film. The way she gets into the skin of the character is simply brilliant. Pankaj Kapur, a versatile actor, makes his presence felt in every scene he is in. Other actors, Tushar Pandey, Rahul Khanna, Pia Bajpayee, and Neil Bhoopalam, do not have much to do in the film.

Lost starts on a promising note on the streets of Kolkata. The story tries to highlight several social and political issues. Director Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury has kept the pace of the film slow. The film never speeds up to top gear and goes at the same pace. The plot is gripping but ends up in a rather dull climax that spoils the fun at the end. The background score of the film keeps you engaged throughout.


Final Verdict

Yami Gautam Lost

The film, that could be an edge-of-the-seat thriller, leaves many questions unanswered. It sheds the light on the national topic of people going missing every hour, but it misses the powerful execution in the end. However, Lost can be watched for the journey of Vidhi Sahani and obviously not for the climax. We give this Yami Gautam’s film Lost 3 stars out of 5. Have you watched the fmovie How did you find it?
