Based on one stormy night, Chameli revolves around two strangers who meet, while trying to run from the torrential monsoon rain in Mumbai.

Rahul Bose
The smart Suave Rahul Bose

Seeking shelter under one small roof, these two characters find nothing in common to talk about.

He is an upper class banker, suave, smart and sophisticated.

She is a prostitute, street smart but innocent.

As these two characters stand together, watching the rain-drops, they are both hesitant to start a conversation. Soon the ice melts as the story progresses.

Chameli is all about relationship that develops between two people played by Kareena Kapoor and Rahul Bose.

The movie goes into a flashback which depicts the lives of both these characters.

Other eccentric characters include John the chaiwala (meaning the tea man) and a transvestite who plays an important part in the lives of the hero and heroine.

Kareena Kapoor has already made headline news in the entertainment world for her part in Chameli.

Her dress sense in the film matches her character to the core.

She is now breaking away from Hindi commercial cinema by accepting roles based on art films like Chameli.

We will once again see the talents of Rahul Bose who was last seen in the award winning film, Mr and Mrs Iyer.

The late Anant Balani started the film which was taken over by director Sudhir Mishra to complete this project.

Shot in a start to finish schedule, Chameli will have three songs composed by Sandesh Shandilya.

So watch this space for further updates on the release of this film.
