A film decades in the making, has finally been realized by one of the Industry’s youngest directorial talents, Mohit Suri. Inspired by the high-profile romance of yester-year, Woh Lamhe treads the relationship of actress Parveen Babi and director/producer Mahesh Bhatt.
However, today we tell a different story. We delve into the enigmatic fragrance and intoxicating aroma of the film’s hauntingly beautiful score, a score that not only continues a trend…but redefines it. It’s hard to fathom Suri’s professed ideology of his rather tasteless ear for good music, given that he has encapsulated some fine compositions in his past films [Zeher and Kalyug], essaying the nuances of each tune beautifully to fit vividly within the ornamented silver screen.
Mr. Suri: Modesty is not always a working factor behind the work of a successful filmmaker. And by far not one of your best skills either! You have a mighty fine ear for rich and textured sounds, as Woh Lamhe’s musically diverse feather fits snug in that director’s cap of yours.
Sometimes a Romance such as the one in question can only be expressed through the unparalleled chemistry portrayed by a tranquilly layered composition and a phosphorescent stanza of poesy, enlaced with the finishing touches of a sensually raw, yet melodiously flawless rendition.
So, are you ready to embark on a journey that promises to protect the sanctity of filmi music, while adding volumes to it? And the masses raise their hands in desperation…
