Isn't Paheli great! Best love story (after Devdas). Shahrukh never looked so handsome, loved so passionately or convinced anyone so completely of his ardent love than he did the stunningly beautiful Rani and his audience. I loved everything about the movie, especially the costumes, dancing and hot love scenes between Shahrukh and Rani . OMG!
I also have wondered about the berries. Please share with us what you find out . Thanks!
Your goose...um guess... is as good as mine. No idea. And having no idea frustrates me... grrr.
I was looking at the growth pattern on the bush as much as the berry itself and gooseberries seem to grow in clusters whereas the bushes in the movies seem to have individual berries. Who knows if those bushes are even real? Even more interesting to me than the berries themselves was the idea that because they weren't cultivated and grew wild that they were beneath Kishanlal standards. A money hungry man who didn't appreciate the value of a free meal? Or the deliciousness of a found treat? No wonder Lachchi was so easily wooed. Served him right.
1. Nobody, but noooobody romances like our SRK. Nobody.
2. He was an attractive young man, but WOW do I prefer his mature face (which he had acquired by the time this movie was made.)
3. What a lovely, sweet, adorable movie. I can't wait to watch that one again....
... gonna have to research what kind of berries those were....
Certainly a very special movie, one of my favorites! I can watch this one any time, and endulge myself in the simpleness and tenderness of this movie!
For me... it's how completely he loves her. So utterly devoted to her. The love scenes were amazing, but it was the love they grew from that got to me. SRK seems to understand the idea that it's not what you do, nor how you do it... it's the depth of feeling with which you do it that matters. At least on screen, he's got that down pat. If he's got it down in life, too... Gauri is one lucky woman.... married to one lucky man.

Thank you Maryah!!!!
So: what's your favorite scenes?
Mine is the one after the ghost decides to let go of his body, when he meets Lachhi in the bedroom! The way SRK acts like the ghost acting like Kisan is just amazing! And now he is almost pouting because she did not bring the baby and then finally drops the bomb telling that he is actually the ghost .... I just love that!
Another one is when Kisan returns home and is being thrown out as an impostor, when he breaks down ... So heart breaking - this scene alone should have brought SRK a best actor award. Cause not only the crying Kisan is played extraordinarily in this scene, but also the ghost who watches the whole situation without saying a single word - while his face is torn between emotions - pity for Kisan and worry for his wife! What a scene!
And the comedy scenes: when the guy who is sending the letter from Kisan to his home, and back freaks out about the two Kisans "hum sab Kisan lala" makes me laugh each single time. And all those utter magic tricks ....
Well I guess I have more than one favorite scene!
This movie was never as appreciated as it should have been! It's a master piece that easy beats a lot of other (SRK) movies!!!
I am obviously going to have to watch it again... soon! I was so enthralled with SRK throughout the whole movie, I would have a hard time picking out any one or two scenes. Plus, now that I've watched it and read all of the subtitles... I can pay more attention to the performances.
One of the performances I enjoyed very much was Amitabh's as the shepherd. A great supporting cast over all.
The whole movie was great! I especially loved the scene where Shahrukh reveals that he is a spirit and that he had to "come clean"(TELL HER HIS TRUE IDENTITY), before making love to her. Rani's character was forced to make a decision- no one had ever allowed her to do that before. And what a decision ! Her decision to love her spirit lover would result in her having to live through countless reincarnations to make up for choosing him over her loneliness and her absentee detached husband. She made mention of her dilemma to her baby girl before she prepared herself to reconcile with Kishan in the final scenes.
