A gorgeous film, Paheli marks a radical departure from the run of the mill ghastly Bollywood tripe and is easily the crown jewel in the careers of two of Bollywood's finest artistes - Rani Mukerji and Shahrukh Khan.

A strong rebuff to the formulaic Bollywood love yarns, this timeless story takes us on an unusual adventure.

It is the story of a young woman Lachchi (Rani Mukerji) who falls in love with a ghost (Shahrukh Khan) after her real husband Kishen (Shahrukh Khan again) leaves their village on a multi-year business trip soon after their marriage.

In contrast to her real husband, who seems curt and wholly obsessed with money the ghost is besotted with Lachchi and lavishes love on her.

Lachchi soon succumbs to the charms of the ghost, who has actually come to her house in the guise of her husband.

As in all great love stories, trials and tribulations come visiting here too - when Lachchi's real husband Kishen returns to the village from his lengthy business trip.

Kishen's return causes a commotion prompting the villagers to decide to consult their king. On the way, they meet a shepherd (Amitabh Bachchan) who helps the villager in identifying the impostor and gives short shrift to the ghost.

But, then do ghosts ever give up easily?

Both Rani Mukerji and Shahrukh Khan have rendered top class performances in this classic.

The film is based on the folk tale Duvidha by Vijaydan Dethe. - Copyright SearchIndia.com.
