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

Did You Know?


Anil Kapoor stated "Well, Lamhe, people liked the second half better. The first half, I found to be unnecessarily slow. A film must hold you from the beginning to the end. People say climax theek nahi tha. I feel it was ahead of its time. And Sridevi was magnificent in both Mr India and Lamhe. She was beyond perfect in Mr India. Or, for that matter, even Judaai, if you've see her in the film, she is exceptional." See more »

Best by far
26 July 2014 | by gauravjuneja91See all my reviews

Best Acting , Best direction , Best Songs , Best Cinematography, powerful story line, and , no nonsense Bollywood type Masala!!! This movie will be liked by all at least once in one's life for sure , most probably during middle ages or beyond , and once liked , will always be liked no matter how many times this movie will be watched. Truly one of the best Masterpiece from Yash Chopra. However , it was Sridevi whose stupendous performance was beyond words can describe!! Her Non glamorous looks , actually , added lot of glamour in the film. With one of the best dialogues of all time , this movie is treat for both heart and mind!!
