One fine day, a young activist vanished mysteriously with no apparent cause. An investigation by investigative journalist Vidhi ( Yami Gautam ) uncovers that he crossed paths with several influential bosses, which ultimately brought him to his demise.

This investigative drama, based in Kolkata’s underbelly, is a tribute to the numerous journalists who strive to maintain their humanity and honesty while taking tremendous measures to learn the truth and share it with the world through their words.


Lost by Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury avoided pointless detours while providing clear explanations for those it did touch upon. At its fundamental conception, Lost needs to be clarified. The director has excellent intentions but needs a distinct vision this time, which is upsetting. Lost held it together with deft writing, restrained performances, and actual incidents involving the legal system that restored hope. Everything was perfect before it was shown on the screen.

Yami Gautam’s film has its share of forgotten qualities of empathy while asking the right questions, despite being wholly engrossed in thrill sequences. There is no doubt that Yami Gautam Dhar is making wise decisions. Pankaj Kapur can make any character seem like it has depth, which he achieves in this case. Rahul Khanna does the necessary duties as a one-note politician without a purpose or motivation.

Lost had the potential to be a movie that starts a critical discourse, but it dilutes itself by using a bland translation. Despite a few minor problems, Yami Gautam’s stirring performance and the film’s persistent concerns about essential issues make Lost a memorable experience for viewers.

The fact that the movie achieves nothing substantive for the first hour and picks up the pace in the second with no apparent break should also be considered. Gender politics, youth brainwashing for political purposes, the have-nots being victimized by the powerful, and even the powerful abusing their position to indulge their lust are all topics of discussion.

The right to voice has continued to be India’s society’s most significant social injustice, and tackling the caste system in the film is politically tricky. The movie emphasizes the need to constantly stand back and consider your accusations before making them.

Rating – Three out of five stars.

Three stars for Lost is based on actual events and tells the tale of a sharp, young criminal reporter relentlessly seeking the truth about the sudden disappearance of a young theater activist. Even the topic matter is interesting as Yami Gautam Dhar tries something different from her usual options. All of these factors contributed to the film’s rating.
Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury is the director of Lost. Zee Studios and Namah Films jointly produce it. The featured actors are Rahul Khanna, Yami Gautam, Pankaj Kapur, and Neil Bhoopalam. On February 16, 2023, ZEE5 began airing the movie.
