Interesting how some filmmakers will try anything to make a buck or two by cashing in on a film, which should have been destroyed, the day it was first shelved. Alas, I talk about the Shah Rukh Khan and Raveena Tandon film. They are also credited with working together once in Zamana Deewana (also a bad film)
Its very understandable why these 2 stars wanted nothing to do with Yeh Lamhe Judaai Ke because the plot is wafer-thin with the usual ingredients nowadays: a love story, villains (male and female), insertion of songs in the wrong places, ah yes MURDER MYSTERY, and actors to side track the film.
This film is actually 2 films: one half with shady characters and SRK and Raveena filmed 10 years ago and the other half filmed with new actors in 2003.
So here is the â€śoriginalâ€ť story. Dushyant (SRK) and Jaya (Raveena) are friends since childhood and they both love each other. Dushyant wants to be a famous singer so Jaya decides to sacrifice her love for his singing to blossom. Frankly, the music in this film is taken straight from the tune of Tum Bin (which had much better songs).
So our villains, Nisha (Navneet Nishan) and Sujit (Mohnish Behl) also want the lovers apart because they want to use Dushyant to get his money. They make him believe that Jaya is after his money. Shall I continue? There is no point. Let me just tell you how desparate the filmmaker was to make this movie. The voices of the actors are so horrendous that you feel like crying. The actors look so jaded that they arenâ€™t acting at all. The plot moves so slowly that you can actually predict the very next scene and solve the murder mystery too.
As for the performances, I am sure if SRK and Raveena were in the film for more than 80it mightâ€™ve been watchable, but with the rush to release, you can see filler scenes with no sound, or characters talking in shadows to not show their faces because the actors stopped filming so long ago.
I will be truthful, I was in hysterics when I finished watching this film. I was in tears as to how much I hated watching the film. Boy, did I regret watching this film over say Murder or even Meenaxi. So, the verdict, if you want to see SRK in his earlier years or torture someone, rent Yeh Lamhe Judaai Ke.
