Storyline

LAMHE is the story of moments, moments of passion - moments of ecstasy - moments of love moments that change lives. When the young Viren (Anil Kapoor - Slumdog Millionaire and 24) comes to India for the first time, he is captivated by Pallavi (Sridevi). When he learns she is already spoken for, he returns to London a broken man. When he gets the news of Pallavi and her husband dying and leaving their daughter Pooja (Sridevi) behind, Viren ensures that she is taken care of. Now some 20 years on, Viren comes back to India and sees Pooja for the first time - a spitting image of her mother. Viren feels that destiny is playing a cruel game with him when Pooja confesses she is in Love with him - yet another moment that changes his life - forever. LAMHE is Yash Chopra's most cherished film with soul stirring music composed by internationally acclaimed Classical Maestros Shiv-Hari. Written by Official Source

moments of love..
12 June 2007 | by HeadleyLamarrSee all my reviews

A true Mills and Boon style Autumn and Spring romance, Lamhe is a film I watched with much anticipation. I wanted to see Sridevi in one of her acclaimed performances, see a vintage Yash Chopra film. I came away with the following impressions:

1. The story was a little edgy and even uncomfortable at times - a man who falls in love with his old flame's daughter. Nishabd anyone?

2. Anil Kapoor cannot really act and looks ridiculous without the trademark mustache.

3. Yash Chopra assembled a really awful cast of minor characters -could anyone be more annoying than Pallavi's husband Deepak Malhotra, than Anil Kapoor's girlfriend Ila Arun?

4. Sridevi alternated between astoundingly good and hamming. I loved her in so many parts of the films and was annoyed in several places. She was annoying as the cute acting Pooja but absolutely endearing later on as things got more serious. And boy can she dance!

5. Anupam Kher was very funny - loved his character. Waheeda ji was great - loved her reprise of aaj Phir jeene ki Tamanna hai!

6. Music was sort of ordinary.

Overall the film was great in parts and very hackneyed in parts, but it did explore a theme that was bold for its time. I cannot See what the fuss was all about - but it is worth a one time watch.
