Taran Adarsh, Bollywood Hungama
Like it or not, Soha Ali Khan is hopelessly miscast.The role required at least one per cent of what Smita Patil gave to Bhumika. Ms Khan may be sincere but not mature enough to make you care about this Soya Soya Chand.
Khalid Mohamed, Hindustan Times 
This could well be Sudhir Mishra’s first truly mainstream film, his formal introduction to the aam audience.
Sonia Chopra, SIFY
And Guru Dutt himself would have smiled at the title track.
Raja Sen, Rediff 
Director Sudhir Mishra tries to re-capture on celluloid: the age of Guru Dutt Sahir Madhubala Waheeda and Raj Kapoor.
Nikhat Kazmi, Times of India
Do go watch it. It is a sincere effort, a work born out of sheer love for the medium, and I earnestly wish we would see more films like this.

Overall Khoya Khoya Chand is a let down and lost in translation. It's just another stereotype of Sudhir Mishra movie. Not for the masses. Watch with low expectations and you might like it.
Ashok Nayak, Now Running
Thus one is taken aback to see a film like Khoya Khoya Chand which shows up the industry then, as it really was on the inside. Quite different apparently than what was portrayed on-screen. They were schemers, wheeler-dealers, the producers ranted about pr

We sympathize with the director in undertaking a great task and trying to achieve it, but would fail in our onerous duty in not faithfully reviewing his movie
Smash Hits
With Khoya Khoya Chand director Sudhir Mishra re-creates the magic of 50’s and 60’s to pay tribute to all those who existed in the film industry during that era. Most of Sudhir Mishra’s movies were critically acclaimed while commercial success eluded him.
The film is set between 1953 and 1965. Junior artiste Nikhat (Soha Ali Khan) goes through multiple casting couches from the age of 14 till she catches the attention of top star Prem Kumar (Rajat Kapoor) who gets her a big break. He also patronizes Zafar (Shiney Ahuja), a writer from an aristocrat family that has fallen on bad days thanks to his debauched father, whom Zafar could not forgive even on the latter's deathbed.
India Glitz
When Sudhir Mishra's last directorial venture Hazaron Khwahishen Aisi released, ironically both the film as well as it's music was appreciated much after the film came and went off the theaters.
The film is set against the backdrop of the film industry in the 50's and 60'sThough the film manages to capture the era visually, unfortunately it comes across as monotonous, self-indulgent and long drawnThe performances too are just fare with Shiney giv
