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 enough to deliver his best. Rani has been better, especially after 'Black', this perfromance seems mediocre. Amitabh in his cameo was a disappointment and so were all the other characters, barring Juhi, who did a decent job of the 'one expression' role she got.


There was very little depth in the storyline. The film was touted to be based on the dilemma in a womans life (marriage or love). But unfortunately, that 'dilemma' lasted for just 5 minutes in the movie. After Rani chose love,the rest of it was very shallow and very disappointing.


Amol Palekar as an actor was very good. He potrayed the common man brilliantly. His movies were very simple, yet very relevant and pertinent. There is nothing of that in 'Paheli'.


For the sake of all cine-lovers, I hope this is a one-off for Shahrukh and Amol.
