Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s Khoobsurat was all about an effervescent girl who enters a strict household and teaches everyone how to laugh and live life to the fullest.
Coming to this Khoobsurat, well the movie is all about Mili (Sonam Kapoor), who is a physiotherapist in Delhi. The free spirited doctor is sent to Rajasthan to treat the paraplegic Shekhar Rathore, Raja of Sambalgarh, who is now on a wheelchair.
The Rathores of Sambhalgarh are rich, royal and wholly dysfunctional. Enter Mili, who is a misfit and then naturally, fireworks follow.
As the movie moves on, Mili realizes that it’s not easy for her to adjust in the palatial household and follow the rules, which are strictly implemented by Nirmala Devi Rathore (Ratna Pathak Shah). Their son Yuvraj Singh (Fawad Khan) is all about business and work. He is engaged to a girl from Mumbai but now that Mili is in the house and they end up spending some time together, she eventually becomes the reason for his separation.
Sonam Kapoor looks stunning, Ratna Pathak too delivers a fabulous performance and Kirron Kher is the usual Punjabi mother who makes you laugh. Aditi Rao Haydri and Cyrus Shaukar are good in the cameos.
However, the film belongs to Fawad Khan who is brilliant, he is the best part of this film. He gets into the skin of the character pulling off the role of a snobbish prince with a lot class and panache.
The problem with Khoobsurat is it’s script as its too predictable as it has nothing new to offer and its songs.
Director Shashanka Ghosh makes a brave attempt to remake Khoobsurat and though he does not spoil the original, he actually has not added anything new to this one. All in all, Khoobsurat looks like a very shallow attempt.
Khoobsurat is strictly for Fawad Khan fans.
