Woh Lamhe (2006) - Hindi Movie Review

Ranking: 2.5/5

Cast: Shiney Ahuja, Kangana Ranaut, Shaad Randhawa
Director: Mohit Suri
Music: Pritam


The story is supposedly a "real-life story" like so many of other Mahesh Butt's movie are...He did write the story...The real-life story is supposed to reflect his times with Parvin Babi...Is it all true...well it is for you to decide...

Aditya Garewal (Shiney) is a promising young director who wants to make it big in the film industry. He has his eyes set on roping in Sana (Kangana) who is a star for his next venture. But Sana is under a contract with a big name producer and is a puppet in the hands of her boyfriend Nikhil (Shaad) who controls her every movement in life...

Sana is attracted to Aditya but she is unable to commit until one day she sees her boyfriend cheat. Then she is out on her own and starts to work with Aditya on his new venture. In due course of time the two of them fall in love. But Aditya is not able to commit to the relationship and they keep dragging along...Until Aditya realizes that Sana Schizophrenic issues and then he starts helping her...The movie drags on...really...we all know how this is really supposed to end if it was Parvin Babi's story but thats not how it ends...

Anyhoo, Mahesh Butt really thinks too much of his looks casting Shiney as himself! Shiney is a good actor and I wonder why he wasted his time acting in this movie as it is a very mediocre fare with cliched dialogues and badly edited script as well as screenplay. Kangana also has displayed brilliance in acting in Gangster has done a good job but somehow the story does not do justice to her talents. The director seriously needs to get some schooling before he sets out making loosely written biographies. The movie has shades of gray in it and is certainly not a fun movie. It is a little dragging and a little boring in many occasions but it is a skin fest for sure!

My final word for this movie is don't waste time if you have better things to do...

Hi,
I just wrote the review of Guru in my blog. Tried to imitate your style, but the end product that materialized couldn’t match your finesse! Just check it, it turned out too long!
