So Woh Lamhe is an account of Mahesh Bhatt's relationship with Parveen Babhi. Well, director Mohit Suri apart from taking inspiration from his uncle's life, also seems to be inspired from the Oscar winning Hollywood flick American Beauty.
Here we see Kangana Ranaut (who was last seen in Gangster) in a tub of roses, a scene which was popularized by Mena Suvari in the 1999 film made by Sam Mendes. However, both the scenes look a bit different. In American Beauty, it was shown that Kevin Spacey was fantasizing about Suvari while in this picture it seems that Kangana is harrowed about something.
Original or not, Mohit Suri has given two hits in the name of Zeher and Kalyug and with a magical score backing them up, the Bhatts seem to have hit the bull eye once again.
Now before you think that the story is over, just scroll down and see for yourself Kangana's unoriginality being showcased all over.Doesn't this surprise you? Yes, this is Kangana Ranaut and the film in question is I Love You Boss that was supposed to be Kangana's debut flick. Here we see Kangana posing the same way as Elizabeth Berkley did for the film Showgirls way back in 1995. We know a lot of stories are ripped from Bollywood but at least the publicity campaign can be original. Alas!
Produced by Pahlaj Nihalani and to be directed by Deepak Shivdasani, this film never hit the floors. Pahlaj Nihalani claimed that Kangana had inhibitions of making her debut opposite Shatrughan Sinha who was finalized for the role. Kangana on the other hand claimed that the producers took too long to finalize the leading actor. However, there is no love lost from either side.
Once again original or not, Kangana's career is going great guns. Apart from Woh Lamhe, she has signed Suneel Darshan's Shaka Laka Boom Boom and has some more films in her kitty.
