Chutney Windham is an antagonist and boss daughter in the film and the daughter of millionaire Hayworth Windham and his ex-wife Mrs. Windham Vandermark and the daughter-in-law of Brooke Taylor-Windham. The film originally ended at the courthouse, just after Woods won the case, with Elle on the steps of the courthouse sharing a victory kiss with Emmett, then cutting a year into the future to see her with a now-blonde Vivian form their own blonde legal defense club at law school. After the test audience revealed that they didn`t like the ending, McCullah Lutz and Smith consulted Luketic, Platt and other members of the production team while they were still in the lobby of the theater, and they agreed that a new conclusion was needed. “It was just a weak ending,” said screenwriter McCullah Lutz. “The kiss didn`t feel right to me because it`s not a romantic comedy – it wasn`t about their relationship. So the test viewers said, “We want to see what happens – we want her to succeed.” That`s why we rewrote for graduation. Ubach and Jessica Cauffiel claim that the original ending also included Elle and Vivian drinking margaritas in Hawaii, implying that they were either best friends now or in love, although Smith and McCullah never wrote such an ending. Other suggested endings for the film included a musical number in which She, the judge, the jury and everyone in the courthouse sang and danced. Amanda Brown published Legally Blonde in 2001, based on her real-life experiences as a blonde who attended Stanford Law School while obsessed with fashion and beauty, read Elle magazine, and frequently clashed with the personalities of her peers. She begins cross-examining Brooke`s daughter-in-law, Chutney, and catches her lying when she discovers significant inconsistencies in her story: Chutney testified that she was home when her father was murdered, but did not hear the shot because she was in the shower after washing her hair that morning. She says washing permanent hair within the first 24 hours would deactivate ammonium thioglycolate, pointing out that the chutney`s curls are still intact. A desperate chutney admits his guilt for accidentally killing his father, as she really intended to kill Brooke because she hated the fact that her father married someone the same age as her. Producer Marc Platt was fascinated by the character of Elle Woods when he received a manuscript of an unpublished novel.  “What I liked about this story is that it`s hilarious, sexy and challenging at the same time,” says Platt. “The world looks at Her and sees someone who is blond and handsome, but no more.
She, on the other hand, does not judge herself or anyone else. She thinks the world is great, she`s great, everyone is great, and nothing can change that. She truly is an irrepressible modern heroine.  Legally Blonde is a 2001 American drama film directed by Robert Luketic. It stars Reese Witherspoon, Luke Wilson, Selma Blair, Matthew Davis, Victor Garber and Jennifer Coolidge. The story follows Elle Woods (Witherspoon), a sister who tries to win back her ex-boyfriend Warner Huntington III (Davis) by earning a Juris Doctor degree from Harvard Law School, overcoming stereotypes against blondes, and triumphing as a successful lawyer. One of the best is the cool and condescending Chutney Windham, daughter of the wealthy murder victim in a case she is working on. She clashes with Chutney as she cross-examines her and manages to obtain a shocking confession in the courtroom. The scene is exciting and funny, especially thanks to the performance of American actress Linda Cardellini, who plays chutney with derogatory aplomb. Chutney is the daughter-in-law of suspect Brooke Wyndham.

Chutney was the daughter of M. Windham and the daughter-in-law of his young wife Brooke. Witherspoon wore 40 different hairstyles in the film.  “Oh my God, it became known as `The hair that ate Hollywood,`” Luketic said. It was all about hair. I have this obsession with flyaways. It annoyed Reese a bit because I always had hairdressers on my face.
