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

Trivia

After the film released, UK actress went to the media and abused Yash Chopra and Anil Kapoor. Her allegations were from the role not being what was narrated to her, to Yash Chopra and Anil Kapoor expecting her to do them " favors". She was upset she was left out of the publicity of the film. She suggested Kiron Kher dub her dialogues because she was not familiar with Hindi. But when she saw the film thought Kiron Kher did a terrible job. Dippy went on to abuse the industry saying no one in the industry had principle's or morals. She left the film industry after one film due to the bad experience . See more »

Yashji's greatest!
23 November 2005 | by Calliegrl03See all my reviews

With this movie, Yash Chopra finally proves that he is one of the greatest Hindi movie directors of all time. Lamhe tells a story about love, passion, and moments...moments for one's love to grow. Anil and Sridevi create magic on screen. I love watching them together. They're both so talented and passionate--especially in this movie. (Sridevi has an AMAZING wardrobe, especially in the first half.) Anupam and Waheeda are brilliant in their supporting roles. Anupamji is such a delight to watch--he's so funny in Lamhe. This movie, which is considered a classic today, was a huge flop when it came out in 1991 because of the "risque" subject matter. Yet, early in his career, Yashji took huge risks when he directed movies like Kabhi Kabhie, Silisa, Waqt and Deewaar. Sadly, he became more commericial with 1997's Dil To Pagal Hai (Crap). Lamhe is seriously Yashji's best film...so check it out ASAP!
