This was the first Yash Chopra film that I saw; I don't remember very much about it except that it's visually pretty, well-acted, well-danced, and terminally boring. It deals with a man (Anil Kapoor) who falls for a woman (Sridevi) who is uninterested in him and marries someone else, and then dies with her husband in a car accident. Anil ends up supporting her orphaned daughter financially but not really seeing very much of her until she grows up to be Sridevi again and develops a crush on him, which weirds him out. I didn't terribly have a problem with the love triangle or whatever you call it, because Anil and Sridevi Jr do not interact at all when she's growing up; he's not a parental figure to her in any meaningful sense. I could even sort of see what they were going for with the ending (where the leads end up together after several geological eras have passed for the viewer), the idea that he loved an idealized version of her mother all those years ago whom he didn't really know, a version which the daughter more closely resembles. But that aspect is not set up very well, and the film is just incredibly slow. I never made it all the way through DDLJ (shameful, I know), but it seems like Lamhe was something of a prototype for the NRI vs homeland plot elements in DDLJ, and that aspect of it might be interesting to people who are interested in the Chopra family's contribution to cinema.
