It’s 02:00, but I just could not think of sleeping without writing this review. I had to get it out of my system.

Woh Lamhe is one movie you do not want to catch – especially when the clock’s just struck 23:00. Because it makes you lose your bearings. The movie’s all about a schizophrenic actress who keeps visualizing someone named “Rani” who’s just a figment of her (the actress) imagination, a movie director who unknowingly falls in love with her (the actress; not Rani), and a whole set of other people playing miscellaneous roles. Wow! I don’t know if you still want to watch this movie. Now, don’t get me wrong, but the best performance in this movie is delivered by “Rani,” although she’s only got a fleeting role.

The movie’s script is in total disarray. You get to hear dialogues such as, “If there’s no hope, then let us invent hope,” and “I’ll kill you if you die. I’ll kill you. I swear.” Whoever heard of inventing hope and just how do you kill someone who’s already dead? It pays to read the script you have written – at least once. The movie hall was often filled with groans of pain and occasional forced bursts of laughter when one couldn’t comprehend the joke being made on the screen.

On the brighter side, we managed to get a free Silver Screen ticket to a movie of our choice, redeemable within the next seven days. Plus, if we manage to tank up another 750 points on our brand-new membership card – and that shouldn’t prove to be too difficult a task, we stand to gain two more free tickets.
