Lamhe - Movie Reviews

Lamhe is another 1990s classic romance by Yash Chopra and Yash Raj Films. This was followed by his son’s directional debut in Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge , several hit productions (but not directions), including Aaina and Yeh Dillagi , and his own product

For once, we think Anil Kapoor was miscast. That is, his performance is fine (if subdued to the point that we wondered if he was on Valium) but he's both too old to play the fresh-faced youth Viren and too young to play the aging, gray-sideburned Viren.

Lamhe is one of those films that stand witness how little the box office results tell when it comes to the quality of the film. A film to cherish. And the best film of an iconic director.
Although, Lamhe wasn’t much of a success initially, it later went on to become a classic Bollywood film and has won many accolades!

As it happens, I do not hate Lamhe. But I do not particularly like it, either. I suppose that in its time - coming as it did in such a dire and violent era for Hindi films - it was refreshing, different, exciting.
