Lamhe ( Hindi: लम्हे, translation: Moments) is a 1991 Hindi film directed by Yash Chopra and starring Sridevi and Anil Kapoor. The story was written by Honey Irani. It was inspired from the 1986 film Anokha Rishta starring Rajesh Khanna.
Lamhe was shot in two schedules in Rajasthan and London. Over the years it has been hailed as a classic and is regarded as a modern masterpiece and possibly Yash Chopra's finest film. Sridevi received acclaim for her double role, winning the Filmfare Award for Best Actress. Although a commercial failure in India, it became a success in the UK. Lamhe went on to win several awards and features in Outlook magazine's list of Bollywood's Best Films. It has been cited as Yash Chopra's personal favourite of the movies he has done. This was one of the last films that Dr. Rahi Masoom Reza scripted: He died a couple of months after its release.
On the occasion of the Centenary of Indian Cinema in 2013, Lamhe featured among the Top Ten Romantic Movies of 100 years.
