Lamhaa - Notepad

wogma rating: Watch when on TV (?)
quick review:

Lamhaa is a Kashmir-issue recap enacted by Sanjay Dutt, Bipasha Basu, Anupam Kher and oh yeah, Kunal Kapoor. It's done in a rush and tries too hard to sell itself to the audience who is presumed to like loud background music and unnecessary drama. Overall, it loses out because it's neither subtle nor loud enough to be a crowd pleaser.

Plot Summary

A complicated web of groups and sub-groups all want a piece of Kashmir. Who does Kashmir belong to?

What Worked

Not too much other than the theme and the climax as observed in the main review

What did not

Note: This section simply lists the things that I did not like in this movie. This is not the overall impression about this movie. Please read the full review here

  • The flashback narrative in the beginning
  • The grain-textured, dark close-ups
  • Whatever happened to Bipasha's kickboxing stunts, where did they disappear after a short appearance
  • The sex scandal, looked very contrived so that the issue is touched upon.
  • The whole defense budget scene
  • The entire bunch of really smart people were gullible and fooled by the defense budget
