“Love is blind, it makes the world go round and it has no boundaries”.  *There are numerous such quotes on or about love which we have heard time and again. Majority of us have probably also tasted this fruit called ‘love’ whether in the form of a teenage crush, an adolescent infatuation or as a...Read More

My daughter gave me this dvd as a Christmas present a couple of years ago, saying she had liked it so much she thought I would too, and she was right. It went away from the too traditional subservient woman not allowed to think for herself, and gave the woman a chance of happiness denied her by ...Read More


Recklessly cruel mystery!!!!!
Sep 26, 2006 06:52 PM Read
Paheli has been a Paheli of some sorts for me as a viewer simply because I could not evaluate the hidden motive behind implementation of a storyline revolving around a ghost who falls in love with Rani Mukherji and vice versa inspite of the fact that Rani Mukherji is actually married to someo...Read More

Redeems Bollywood!
May 25, 2006 03:42 AM Read
I have to say, I loved this movie. The 'desi' audience always complains, ''oh its the same story, the same movie'' and then when something actually good and different like PAHELI comes along, they still don't like it, they want their usual ''masala'' film. Every thing from the acting, directing,...Read More

Paheli -A Preview
Jun 21, 2005 01:54 PM Read
Once again another parallel cinema maker tries his hand at making a commercial film. this time it is amol palekar who takes a rajasthani folk tale and makes an attempt to convert it into a masala potpourri. The story of Paheli is based on a rajasthani folk tale called''Dhuvidha''- the problem...Read More

How could paheli compare to Black??
Sep 28, 2005 12:01 PM Read
Kaisi paheli hai yeh, Kaisi paheli hai yeh zindagani! The song perfectly fits the current state of affairs, even though it doesnt belong to the movie 'Paheli'!! What surprised me was the fact that a classic movie like Black was overlooked and a stupid folk tale was chosen to represent I...Read More

Puzzle with Muzzle !!

When Amol Palekar, the one-time king of simplicity, decided to 'simply' do away with his understated style and take the 'commercial' centerstage by sandstorm, by making a personal magnum-opus cum folk-tale with SRK and Rani as leads, one would have expected a grand story if not a masterpiece. Bu...Read More

Paheli - not so puzzling !!
Oct 05, 2005 02:36 AM Read
Now that Paheli has been sent as a nomination for Oscars, I decided to give the movie a try. Story of the movie is simple, a ghost fells in love with a woman. The ghost follows his love(Rani Mukherji) and while her husband (Shahrukh Khan) is away, takes his form. She too starts loving the gho...Read More

When a Shah Rukh Khan film hits the theatres,there are very high expectations from it and this time too,people have very high expectations from his latest film ”Paheli”.The film`s trailers promised that this one would be a different film from the usual Bollywood and SRK films.This fi...Read More

Black no match for Paheli
Sep 27, 2005 08:01 PM Read
Does Paheli deserve an oscar? Yes.Infact big yes!Paheli represents Indian colour, culture, ethos and myths, and is based on the original work of an Indian writer. It is truly one of the original movie ever made and there is certain rustic feeling to it which connects with each and every India...Read More

Paheli- review after reading other's review
Feb 23, 2006 03:33 PM Read
After reading reviews at mouthshut, I decided to watch ''Paheli''.The other reason was of the star cast SRK,Rani mukherjee,Big B,Juhi Chawla etc. The promos depicted the movie as epic, and a film by Amol Palekhar.Obviously the message seemed to be its an art film.I guess thats why the film di...Read More

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 as India's entry for Oscar- A joke
Sep 27, 2005 05:33 PM Read
Film Federation of India should either re-look over their decision or will repend over Paheli.... I really wonder what made the Chairman of Film Federation of India Vinod Pande and jury to nominate Paheli as India's official entry for the Oscar 2006 awards. Where there were movies like Swa...Read More

Paheli Deserves to be chucked out

When I saw this movie in a TV channel. I was shocked and could never understand what this movie had to do with Oscars nominations. I usually see only certain movies without reading its reviews. This was one among them as I had great hopes and expectations on the movie. This movie was also one...Read More

A Puzzle beyond a solution
Jul 05, 2005 11:26 AM Read
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

Downright Horrific

I cannot understand how sane people can say that PAHELI is a ’’good’’ movie and they liked it and so forth. It feels as if I am going crazy or the world is going nuts!! Someone has written that this movie has good story, dialogues, music etc!! WHAT story? WHAT dialogues??? (Can you imagine SRK s...Read More
