First day First show reactions to Chameli...


ChameliPritish Nandy Communications much talked about film Chameli, doesn't get a good audience response. The viewers outside Maratha Mandir cinema-hall come out quite unsatisfied...
...Firstly, most weren't willing to accept Kareena Kapoor in the role of a prostitute. She looks too classy and is sort of miscast in the character of Chameli. The basic problem perhaps is that with the theme of prostitution, the masses had conceived something else in mind, while Chameli does not tread that path. Moreover, with the film's major setting in a studio and it's slow pace, the viewers complained that the movie tends to get monotonous after a while and drags.

With an unconventional subject and moreover an unappealing treatment, the fate of Chameli seems rough at the box-office.
