Movie Review

Rating :

Verdict : If you wish to watch a light hearted time pass film, then this one would not be a bad choice. __________________________________________________________

Shashanka Ghosh’s 'Khoobsurat' starring  Bollywood actor Sonam Kapoor and Pakistani actor Fawad Khan . The film tells a story of a young, chirpy physiotherapist and how she changes the lifestyle of already rich and extravagant khandan of Sambalgarh’s Raja. The film is an official remake of Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s 1980’s classic film  'Khubsoorat'., which had Rekha as the female lead.  Movie going to hit the theatres today So, let's find out whether Sonam Kapoor starrer 'Khoobsurat'  turns out to be a watchable affair or not!
 
Story:-

Dr. Mili Chakraborthy (Sonam) is a happy-go-lucky and lively physiotherapist who gets a chance to go to a royal palace to treat the paraplegic Shekhar Rathore, Raja of Sambalgarh in Rajasthan. Mili enthusiastically takes up the offer to go to the palace, but little does she know that the place is all about obeying rules and regulations set up the Queen. Here she meets the King’s son Yuvraj Vikram Singh (Fawad Khan) and falls for him.

Will Mili be able to adjust in a royal environment or will remain a mis-fit thanks to her lively and spontaneously? Will she be able to express her feelings towards the Prince? The answers to these questions are what the rest of ‘Khoobsurat’…

Positive points:-

Even though the story in this modern day remake is nowhere close to the original, the plot and the characters are kept the same by the director, but in a fresh and lively manner. 

Fashionista Sonam is a style icon and she definitely looks glamorous in the film. She is also capable of making the film colourful and visually appealing, but then that is what she is limited too. The actress still needs to work extremely hard on her acting skills especially her dialogue delivery. She also overdoes the enthusiasm in a few sequences.

When we talk about the new guy in Bollywood – Fawad Khan, After watching this film, you’ll come to know that why all the girls are going ga-ga over Fawad because he really has talent with great looks. He looks ever so charming and impresses the audience with his subtle mannerisms. He fits perfectly in the role of a snobbish Prince who secretly falls in love with the chirpy physiotherapist. 

Kirron Kher is hilarious in her part of a Punjabi mother which also happens to be her forte. She is the only one who adds a little wit in the tedious second half. Ratna Pathak should have been given a little more scope to showcase her prowess as people were definitely expecting to see her Sarabhai Vs Sarabhai avatar. Sonam and Fawad’s romance is sweet and lovable at a few places.

Negative points:-

The film’s editing is hideous and that’s because everytime the audience start to develop a sense of interest in a particular scene, the editor abruptly cuts to a different scene. Another bad part about the film is the background voiceovers given to the lead pair of the film. It is so irritating that one cannot spot out the difference whether the characters are actually speaking or thinking.

Technical aspects:-

The movie is not very sound technically! Shashank’s direction is ok and could have been a little better. However, the good part is that the filmmaker has tried to make the film as light-hearted as possible. The screenplay is fine and is engaging and interesting in parts. A few scenes in the movie including the kidnapping episode do not make any sense. While the first half is ok, the second half is tedious. The cinematography is beautiful as the camera covers the royal palaces and the streets of Rajasthan perfectly.

The music composition by Sneha Khanwalkar have so far entertained us. Apart from funky songs such as Engine Ki Seeti, Maa Ka Phone, there are also soulful songs like Naina and Preet.
