Lamhaa: The Untold Story of Kashmir

"The untold story of Kashmir" Indian Military Intelligence deputes an agent to Kashmir incognito to find out who is behind extremist attacks.

Rahul Dholakia's 'Lamhaa' is a poor show. It tackles a noble issue, but it's execution fails to keep you gripped most of the time. In short, Kashmir is Heaven, but, 'Lamhaa' isn't.Based on the tensions and non-stop happening violence in Kashmir. The World we live in, is one Violent Place. The biggest problem with 'Lamhaa' is it's backdrop. Daily, we hear or read violence happening here and there, and, on how the World is coming to an end with violence. Cinemas and Sit-Com's are stress-busters... we except some light entertainment so that we can for at least sometime be in relief. 'Lamhaa' is one disturbing film, that has bloodshed, bloodshed & only bloodshed to offer.Dholakia fails to deliver. He's ought to take a deep breath and make some light stuff. Cinematography is brilliant. Kashmir has been captured beautifully. Music by Mithoon is superb, with Madhno being a memorable hit. The editing isn't right.In the acting department, Sanjay Dutt is not in form this time around. Also, he looks heavy throughout. Bipasha Basu is a miscast. Kunal Kapoor delivers each line in the same emotion. Anupam Kher is the lone performer who looks his part. He shines as the conniving politician. Yashpal Sharma is wasted.On the whole, 'Lamhaa' didn't get box office success nor great acclaim. And it's failure doesn't come up as a surprise, from this writer... Thumbs Down!
