Paheli Reviews

This crap for Oscars
Sep 27, 2005 10:34 AM Read
Has the jury who select the movies for oscars gone mad?? This is crazy. Of all the movies, they went for paheli. The only name that comes to my mind for oscars is BLACK. Its hard to understand how they could chose paheli over BLACK. BLACK is such an incredible movie. AB was excellent. The overal...Read More

Paheli Review
Sep 20, 2005 12:23 PM Read
Paheli is one of a rare breed of films as not too many film-makers possess the courage to venture into this genre. In that respect, I salute the director Amul Palekar for his passion for this script and Shahrukh Khan for agreeing to act in it and produce it too. The film is based on a folktal...Read More

A Magical Story
Aug 25, 2005 04:24 AM Read
An Amol Palekar Movie starring King of Bollywood...SRK and the queen of acting....Rani Mukherjee......was bound to have great expectations. It was surprising when the initial reviews about the movie were not so great. So much so that it was last on my list of ''to be watched'' movies. I manag...Read More


An excellent movie

Hi, Kudos to Amol Palekar and his team for an excellent movie. The storywriter's imagination has been bought out very well. I did the same things after marriage, show more interest in business and work,neglect my beautiful wife. This movie as was previewed in Rediff can be better rel...Read More

Immiscible ingredients?
Aug 23, 2005 07:55 AM Read
Based on the work of Vijay Dan Dehta and a screenplay from wife Sandhya Gokhale, Amol Palekar takes us to the mystical world of Rajasthani folklore in 'Paheli'. Ably supported by his team of artists and technicians, Palekar tells a ghost story, with such adroitness and care that the shared sense...Read More

A refreshing artistic folklore..entertaining

The Real Paheli
Aug 15, 2005 08:35 AM Read
Why is it that every time Shahrukh Khan decides to do something different,it blows up in his face?That is the real Paheli.Okay,okay you must have guessed by now,I am a die hard SRK fan.I confess!But it is true.Asoka is a testimony to that fact(can’t think of any other at the moment!)

Phir raat kati – aur din nikla

Indian cinema has reached a new age; where film makers aren’t apprehensive about making even the most unorthodox movies imaginable. Such is Paheli, a fantasy folktale, starring Shah Rukh Khan and Rani Mukherjee. Paheli, as all the websites, newspapers, magazines and wagging tongues adve...Read More

SRK... Burning new trails!
Aug 04, 2005 08:35 AM Read
What is the Paheli? Gee, let's see... Oh yea?! Why hasn't Hollywood picked up SRK yet? Not only was this film fantastic with such great acting, but it was one of the most touching films I have seen yet. Hollywood could stand to produce such great family entertainment. I hope that people can see ...Read More

Good acting but alas the ending
Aug 03, 2005 05:57 AM Read
The movie's plot is very well developed as it unfolds. But then it seems that suddenly the director has to end the movie and he comes up with a weird ending. Great cinematography but then we have to come to expect that from Bollywood movies. Pretty good acting on the part of SRK and RaniM and ot...Read More

A real Paheli
Jul 29, 2005 06:39 AM Read
Paheli is a good movie though it can't be recommended to watch more than once. You have high hopes seeing name's like Anmol Palekar, Rani Mukherji and Shahrukh Khan but unfortunately the film doesn't live upto it's expectaions. Though I've heard from people that often ghosts do indeed fall in...Read More

Not so much a riddle!
Jul 28, 2005 04:16 PM Read
Paheli as a movie is pre-rational. The people who wash it away or question the logic of it are people who are unable to locate the world behind the parable, the universe in the folktale and the truth in a legend. They question and smug in their own enlightened logic, fail to understand the struc...Read More

Peacock spreads its mesmerizing wings underneath the scorching blue sky. Vibrant puppets descend from the gnarled branches of an ancient tree. Golden sands of an endless desert keep on swirling. And a beautiful folk tale from Rajasthan comes to life in PAHELI. Once upon a time, there was a lo...Read More

No Paheli in Paheli
Jul 16, 2005 02:40 PM Read
First The good part. The setting looked pretty original. The characters mouthed authentic Rajasthani words and not the stupid stuff being passed off as Marwadi till now. And Rajpal Yadav in his 5 minute role was brilliant. Unfortunately, thats about it to the movie. Shahrukh wasnt challenged ...Read More

Marrying art and commerce...
Jul 11, 2005 06:57 AM Read
King Khan has been daring to be different for a while now. This is yet another such venture, this time surprisingly joining hands with an arty director, who also used to be a much-loved actor. The story is quite interesting -- ghost falls in love with just-married damsel and uses the opportun...Read More

Does Shahrukh Have enough Magic to save This film?
Jul 10, 2005 09:39 PM Read
When I went to watch Paheli two weeks ago my expectations was running high for a shahrukh Khan Film, maybe because It looked like something different? Maybe because I heard the soundtrack and loved almost each and every song in the soundtrack? But when I finished watching the film I did ask myse...Read More

Boring? An SRK film? Before I get lynched for that, let me assure you that if you fall into the category of fans who root for SRK no matter what, then you will enjoy Paheli. The same goes for fans of Rani Mukherjee. But if you're just expecting your money's worth of good entertainment, then you,...Read More

The Ghost, Indian shtyle!
Jul 07, 2005 02:55 PM Read
Amol Palekar decides to go commercial. Absolutely fine, since he is a fine director. He decides to work under the SRK banner. Fine again, for SRK is as commercial as it gets. He signs SRK (with a mooch) & Rani as the leads, with the Big B making a fleeting appearance. Perfect - they are undoubte...Read More

Paheli - A mystery in itself
Jul 06, 2005 02:04 PM Read
paheli - a mystery in itself. Amol's movies are good musical movies. One among such movies is Paheli. Paheli is a mystery in itself. This is a good movie for one to watch. The strange think I found was, the idea of this movie was taken or matched up with a movie in 1980's lead by Prakash R...Read More

A Puzzle beyond a solution

Amol Palekar s intentions are indeed noble and he does indeed make an impact on the audience with his movie “ Paheli” . The movie has a galaxy of stars and it presents some wonderful aspects of Rajasthan, but the story, based on a folk tale, is the biggest void in the movie and I cou...Read More
