Movie Review: Paheli: Real Paheli
It is really a paheli, why amol palekar chose this theme, it is meant for whom, kids or adults, is it suited for today's time when some othe better theme could be taken and presented.
Although direction, cast, acting is marvellous but still movie has flopped, may be due to above reasons.
Movie starts with rajasthan background (deserts) and rani mukherjee (laachi) getting married to kishan who is the younger son of a baniya seth (anupam kher) of a village. Just on the way to his house while taking the new bride, the boy family plans to stop at a place to take some rest. This place is hosting some ghosts. a ghost gets admired by Laachi’s beauty and starts loving her.
Laachi does not have her first night with her husband as kisan has to leave for a business tour for five years early in the morning and he has to finish and hand over some work to his father before he goes. (early morning is the best muhurat to start for business which will not come for next 7 years). so the new bride laachi sleeps alone and early morning kisan is moving. On his way, he stops at the same place of ghosts. this ghost talks to him and comes to know that kisan will be back after 5 years. This ghost is having very good character and never tells lies but never minds going to somebody else’s wife and enjoy with her in his absence.
Now this ghost take the shape of kisan and comes to his father’s house. convinces him that he is kisan and starts living with laaachi. Tells laachi what he is really and asks that if she does not want him to live there he will leave. She is seeking love and affection and hence She tells him to stay as her husband.
In a couple of years she becomes pregnant, real kisan comes back, and everybody gets surprised to find two kisan’s. then comes the climax when the ghost decided to leave since he is not real but he just remembers he gave a promise to laachi.
So the real kisan goes and ghost comes back to laachi.
Cast, songs, direction is good but with a poor storyline.
