Few Movies are made really artsy and one can pick them up no matter it shakes the box office or not but gets a high respect index in the heart of audience. Few movies are artsy that the art reflects intentional and hollow, leaving the box office cold as well as recieving filthy words from audiences. Paheli belongs to the second category.

Like any Shahrukh's movie, this one was too very much hyped, but it falls badly on expectations. The movie is so boring that I don't want to write the story here but still cover a bit.

It's a story of a newly wed lady whose husband goes on outside for long trip regarding business, and the ghost takes the place of husband, with consent of newly wed girl, who had not seen more than one night with husband! This is a really pathetic story idea. Thereafter nothing is left to see in the movie and the movie forcibly carries while nothing much is there. No climax, no thrill no refreshing comedy. From here and there sceens were taken and attached. Lagaan like camel race, bhoot had pain when beaten but no pain on picking up the burning charcoal, why bhoot needed a love for body? the movie is absolute nonesense, and it looked like all working in the this team were fools, trying to convince poorly.

Performancewise too nothing was there to perform.All artists performed ok except Rajpal yadav, who enthralled us really. Though I don't recommend to watch the movie, but still you go there watch it for Yadav's sceens only. The sceen where he shares screen with Shahrukh, it clearly looks that he is better than Shahrukh. He gets into character so well that it looked Shahrukh was simply doing a stage drama!!!

Rani was ok. But she was much better in Black and Bunty & Babli. Yes here she looked very beautiful. Thanks to the sets, cinematography and makeup.

AB was there for 5 or 10 minutes in the role of shepherd, and public was heavily disappointed on seeing so little of him.

Though the whole movie is very boring and slow, the pace is made almost dead by insertion of songs on every next minute! You get so fed up and irritated that either you leave the cinema hall in the mid or with lots of abuses at the end!

VerdictDon't watch such a bogus movie, save money for better shows coming next weeks.
