Thursday night is attractive to watch a movie at Inox, the Manhattan card gives you one free ticket with every one purchased. So itâ€™s two for the value of one â€“ And at Inox rates it matters. Wife and me decided to catch the late night show of Woh Lamhe.
A movie aptly named, this is about two lovers who spend some beautiful moments before destiny separates them. Very filmy, has to be because itâ€™s a Mahesh Bhatt story and a big brother Mukeshâ€™s production. This move inspired from the lives of Mahesh and Praveen Bhabhi has all the elements of a masala flick â€“ lots of romance, drama and a big of action too. Although Shiney Ahuja is impressive in his role, I think the dude had some major problems in his throat enacting certain scenes which needed loud screaming (like the one at the Orra party). And letâ€™s not even talk about Kanganaâ€™s diction â€“ She should skip the English atleast. Somebody who really did a fine job was Purab Kohli. It was so very good to see him in a different role from his usual VJing. The director should have spent a little effort to get some of his junior artists perfect â€“ the news-reporter who announces Shamaâ€™s discovery at the hospital. Gosh â€“ He sucked! And the doctor at the hospital could have done some better acting.
Two dialogues which really take the cake:
- If there is no hope, we shall invent it.
- I will kill you, if you die.
All in all, this movie is worth a dekho. However I would have liked it if the horror and psycho bit could have been kept to a minimum. Besides I think the whole storyline makes for an interesting book. Any writers taking up this one?
