Khoya Khoya Chand - External Reviews

wogma rating: Watch if you have nothing better to do (?)
quick review:

Khoya Khoya Chand jumps from sub-plot to sub-plot showcasing only the end result in each case and not the process that led to it. It feels like the crew took a break after each sequence and the loss of continuity shows. While the songs reflect the charm of the 50s, you might be better off just listening to them.
