A rib-tickling comedy about a group of spirits who, in their various idiosyncrasies, try and save their only haunt, their resting place, when some unscrupulous builders try and break it down to build a modern monstrosity.
Parsimonious Bhanwarlal is a Bania (businessman) who lives in Navalgarh, Rajasthan, along with his wife; his sons Sunderlal and Kishanlal; Sunderlal is married to Gajrobai and has a son. During the annual camel race, Sunderlal loses the race to the Thakur and out of shame leaves home, never to return. Now Kishanlal has come of age and is married to Lachchi. But on the very next day of the marriage, he must leave for Jamnagar to attend to business, and can only return after five years. A tearful Lachchi bids him goodbye, but to her pleasant surprise he returns within a few days, and informs his dad that he had met a holy sage who had instructed him to return as he will find five gold coins every morning. Pleased with this, Bhanwarlal does not object to Kishanlal's return. After four years, it is now time for the camel race again, and this time Bhanwarlal's camel wins, much to the chagrin of the Thakur who suspects witchcraft. Then Lachchi gets pregnant and on the day of the child's ... Written by
The movie showcasing the mystic charm of Rajasthan's landscapes (fab cinematography), it's traditional people and splendid performance by the leading cast Shahrukh Khan and Rani Mukherjee is irresistible. Aditi Govitrikar, the pretty model who makes an initial appearance is gorgeous. Juhi Chawla has a tiny role too, anyway she looks beautiful and leaves many male hearts sighing! Suniel Shetty disappears before we can spell P-A-H-E-L-I! Anupam Kher and Rajpal Yadav's comedy adds to the beauty of the movie. Amitabh Bachchan, in a guest appearance as the maverick shepherd makes a cool impact as usual. However, I'm unable to understand the climax. I guess it's upon the viewers to interpret the end. Be entertained, the magic days are back in Bollywood!
