Once upon a time, there was a lovely girl who was married to a man who was only interested in making money. There was a ghost who fell madly in love with her. On the wedding night itself, the husband left home for five long years on account of his business. The ghost took on the husband's appearance and entered her life. A few years later, when the husband returned home, the villagers and relatives were bewildered. How this situation gets resolved is the Paheli.

Critic Reviews for Paheli

The enthusiastic lack of persuasive realism and the strong emotional authenticity make for a most rewarding combination; the thing acts fizzy and shallow, and yet it ends up feeling like there's truth to it.

There's more to recommend: M.M. Kreem's fine music (melding traditional Rajasthani instrumentation and a dancehall beat), a gone-cuckoo-for-the-color-wheel costume and set design, and a truly bang-up camel race. Now that's entertainment.

Audience Reviews for Paheli


I didn't really get the ending, maybe something was lost in the translation. I thought it was interesting and cute. Songs weren't memorable.

I loved the story and the main song 'De Rajalah' *sigh* it was so good, the whole ghost/djinn thing was maybe a little to....much, shall we say. I dont know about you, but I'd be scared to death to find out that my perfect baby's daddy was a ghost/djinn.

An interesting movie! A story about love, magic, and family. Juhi Chawla, Shahrukh Khan, and Rani Mukherjee give phenomenal performances. Amitabh Bachchan gives a hilarious performance as well. Beautiful scenery.
