Lamhaa (Hindi: लम्हा, Urdu: لمحا) is an upcoming 2010 Bollywood action comedy film written and directed by Rahul Dholakia. Set in Kashmir, the film is a story about an army man, played by Sanjay Dutt, and his love interest, played by Bipasha Basu, in the midst of the various issues that Kashmir had faced for years. It also features Anupam Kher and Kunal Kapoor in supporting roles.
Kashmir... once known as a paradise on earth, it is now a playground of Devils. A company is generating millions of unaccountable dollars that benefit all powers- from politicians and leaders to bureaucrats in the Indian and Pakistani intelligence. From high ranking army and police officers to the militants and their supporters, everyone gets a piece of the pie.
The Military Intelligence gets a whiff of a plot that is likely to disrupt and possibly paralyze Kashmir. Vikram is sent to investigate this highly confidential mission using the identity of Gul Jehangir. The same day that he lands in the valley, Haji a top separatist leader, survives a blast. Could there be a connection between the blast and the operation?
To solve this conundrum, Vikram teams up with Aziza, Haji's young, aggressive and outspoken protégée. The intensity of their beliefs and their will to survive against all odds creates a special bond between them. They embark together on a journey full of intrigue, suspicion, betrayal and danger, to uncover the truth.
What seems like a routine investigation ends up being an operation that will change the perspectives and ideologies of both Vikram and Aziza as it exposes the dirty secrets of a state's fight for freedom, the corrupt nexus of politicians, intelligence, militancy and the crucification of idealistic and passionate people. In such a scenario, are bullets and bombs the only solution?
LOINS OF PUNJAB PRESENTS is a sly, guilty pleasure, sending up the kitsch shared by both Bollywood and American Idol, where celebrity dreams can be just one catchy performance away.
