Just as the title offers, "Woh Lamhe" has many exciting moments to offer. I wouldn't say it's a great film but it should provide a very decent watch to its viewers. Supposedly based on Mahesh Bhatt's relationship with popular actress Parveen Babi, the film shows Babi in a rather negative light through Kangana Ranaut's schizophrenic young actress Sana Azim, and follows her relationship with a young filmmaker named Aditya who she falls in love with (that's supposed to be Mahesh Bhatt). A relationship starting off with a collaboration on a film is followed by a live-in relationship, where the young filmmaker is exposed to Sana's insanity. She is haunted by a woman who warns her that everyone wants to kill her. Quite expectedly, Aditya is presented as a kind-hearted and supportive man. I don't know if this portrayal of Parveen Babi's life is correct, but it is certainly unpleasant for those who have known and liked Babi throughout the years. It is not the first time Bhatt wrote a film with a character based on Parveen. His 1982 masterwork "Arth" had a similar character named Kavita played by Smita Patil. While Patel's Kavita was a half-backed role in the film, here we get to see this character as the film's protagonist. But unlike Arth, this film was made a year after Babi's death, so one can never know if the characterisation and the story are completely correct, though we all know that it's just based on this relationship and is not a lifelike depiction of it. Whatever there, the film is very alluring and visually pleasing, although it gets to be a bit disturbing at some points. The film belongs to Kangana Ranaut, who is astonishing as Sana. This is another role showcasing her talent in playing emotionally disturbed characters, and despite her very young age, she handles the rather complex character with great ease and looks beautiful and mature. Shiny Ahuja provides good support but at some scenes annoyingly overacts. The direction is quite good, and the film is enjoyable, interesting and has some fantastic tracks composed by Pritam. Every song has something nostalgically melancholic about it, which makes it memorable and ear-pleasing. Woh Lamhe is definitely worth watching, and not only once.
Comes another biopic from Bhatts after Gangster. The biopic of Parveen Babi. Mahesh Bhatt has claimed that the movie is the story between him and Parveen Babi. Sana is a famous actress who is very insecure and imagines a lot of things which are unreal. She has been diagnosed with schizophrenia. Unlike all wealthy peoples, she is also surrounded by peoples who are after her money. Her mother, boy friend and everyone else for that matter. She meets a struggling Director played by Shiny Ahuja(the role of Mahesh Bhatt). She gets drawn to him whereas the Director uses her for his advantages. Slowly he falls in love with her to escape from the guilt of leaving his mentally ill father in a santorium causing his death. He decides to free her from the mental agonies.
just saw this movie and was very pleasantly surprised!!! Shiny Ahuja not only looks good but has acted so naturally. Randhawa making his debut was a true villain and of course Kangana was better than she was in Gangster!!!!for those of you who have not seen the movie do go and watch it.the soundtrack is amazing too!!!!! i read somewhere that Kangana had a hard time getting into the role which is apparently based on Parveen Babi?! whatever her difficulties she has come through beautifully. one wonders where reality ends and make believe takes over regarding Parveen Babi's life story. whatever it was that Bhatt was trying to convey he has chosen his artists well. maybe somebody out there can tell me whether this really based on Babi's life.
I've just finished watching this movie and honestly the film has surprised me its not the usual story that you see in Bollywood, Loosely based on the relationship of Mahesh Bhatt and the late Parveen Babi. The lead actors Kangana and Shiny portray the roles maturely and it makes u believe and see how full of two faced people the showbiz business is. Sana a popular actress in the film industry has everything until her manager Nikhil rapes her and abuses her when she declines his work orders etc she then sees him with another woman, enter Adi (Shiney Ahuja) a struggling director who at a party gets the attention of the actress by insulting her and her ego... Then time goes Nikhil gets jealous when Sana does Adi's film then love blossoms between the two but at first she disagrees to the movie but since her mother needs the money she agrees this annoys sanas manager nikhil. The actress then realises how she is being used and hurt and all this pain and anger makes u go mad and she gets schizophrenic starts seeing a girl named rani who taunts sana 24/7. Just near the ending sana accepts the fact that she is ill but doesn't face it so she commits suicide... This film is worth a watch but its not for the faint hearted. The soundtrack is impressive and it goes with the movie the track Kya Mujhe Pyar Hai is good.
This film deftly covers the subject of how one deals with personal ambitions and portrays a harrowing look into the condition of paranoid schizophrenia. In both, it succeeds and is very watch-able. The script is wonderfully implemented though later on it slows unnecessarily at times. But it never deviates from the central characters. Kangana Ranaut's character has to deal with what her life is becoming, while Shiny Ahuja's character has tough choices to make about what he wants from his. Ranaut gives a powerful performance, filling out every nuance and facet of her character. Shiny Ahuja brilliantly plays his character, emoting the choices he goes through. The supporting cast aren't memorable but do a good job. The ending is a little heavy handed, but doesn't detract from the rich experience the story offers.
