Movie: Hum Bhi Akele Tum Bhi Akele

Hum Bhi Akele Tum Bhi Akele Cast: Zareen Khan, Anshuman Jha, Ravi Khanvilkar, Gurfateh Pirzada

Hum Bhi Akele Tum Bhi Akele Director: Harish Vyas

Where to Watch: Disney+ Hotstar

Bollyood has done some fantastic road-trip movies in the past like Dil Chahta Hai, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, Karwaan, Qarib Qarib Singlle and even Chennai Express for that matter (it’s telling that an Irrfan Khan movie features twice on the list, showing his impeccable script sense). One thing common in each of the aforementioned ones and others that I’ve forgotten to list is how they throw up several quirky incidents and characters to enhance the journey of the main characters while always ensuring the main plot steadily evolves in the backdrop, till the two seamlessly merge in a fulfilling climax. So, does Hum Bhi Akele Tum Bhi Akele, starring Zareen Khan and Anshuman Jha, which has premiered on Disney+ Hotstar and deals with a sensitive albeit important LGBTQ plot, fit the bill? Well, unfortunately, only sometimes, but when it does, boy is it winderful to savor those moments.

So, are you excited about what to watch this weekend or what to watch this week and wondering whether Hum Bhi Akele Tum Bhi Akele is worth your time? Scroll down for my full Hum Bhi Akele Tum Bhi Akele review…

What’s it about

Zareen Khan and Anshuman Jha play homosexuals who’s paths cross after they run away from their respective marriages (a match-making process in the case of the former) on the quest to reunite with their lovers. Their journey that helps them grasp the difference between true love and being of soulmates forms the crux of the plot.
