LAMHAA releases today and the film sounds mighty exciting primarily due to the fact that the man at the helm of affairs is a National Award winning director Rahul Dholakia who has excelled earlier as well in his issue based film PARZANIA. Add to that the fact that the promos of LAMHAA have managed to make an instant impact, courtesy the thriller format in which the story of this Sanjay Dutt-Bipasha Basu starrer is being told and one can safely presume that the film should work for its audience.
"I am so happy when you say that", smiles Bipasha, "There is so much hard work that has gone into the making of this film. Whether it is the director, producer or all us actors, we have experienced all kind of things during the filming of LAMHAA. It will be great if the film is seen by many because it has in it to wake you to reality and shake you up."
As has been seen in the past, whenever a film is made on a topical issue with strong socio-political angle attached to it, there is a diplomatic stance being taken. No one is expecting a solution here in LAMHAA but the least one wishes to see is an honest attempt.
"We have tried to keep the diplomatic angle away", says Bipasha, hence raising the bar of expectations from the film even further, "Yes, there are sensitive issues involved here and that have to be kept in mind. However, to ensure that the writing is perfect so that nothing comes across as artificial or made up, Rahul (Dholakia) has done a lot of research on Kashmir."
With a strong stance of 'let the truth be told', Bipasha says that the team of LAMHAA could afford to tell truth as much as it was allowed on screen. "We are not just trying to talk about political play between Hindustan and Pakistan here. That was not the intent. We wanted to tell a human story and have succeeded in doing that."
