khoobsurat Movie Review

Khoobsurat Movie Review: This Bollywood movie is a remake of Khoobsurat movie which was Block Buster in 1980, Rekha was in the lead role in that movie with Pair of Rakesh Roshan. This upcoming movie Khoobsurat is directed by Shashanka Ghosh. The producer of this movie Khoobsurat is Rhea Kapoor who is also Daughter of Anil Kapoor, Siddharth Roy Kapoor, and Anil Kapoor. The movie distribution will be done by UTV Motion Picture and Anil Kapoor films Company, as per lead actress Sonam Kapoor this movie is different from the old one but this movie is also taking inspiration from old Khoobsurat movie.

Khoobsurat Movie Story : 

Dr. Milli Chakravarty (Sonam Kapoor) who is a physiotherapist and has in her experience working with IPL team KKR is given the assignment to treat the paraplegic Raja of Sambalgarh, Rajashthan. Now here we go. A happy-go-lucky Delhi-based girl (not from South Delhi as Raja’s wife wishes the therapist should be) lands in the Raj Mahal where everyone lives a stubborn life and laughing or smiling is like an alien activity for them.

So, she finds Shekhar, a wheel-chaired old father who gulps wine every then and now, a strict as Hitler’s mom Nirmala Devi Rathore (Ratna Pathak), a trapped daughter and an always busy on his android and in business meetings son Vikram Rathore (Fawad Khan).

Now how Milli breathes and battles it out in this big cage and brings a different fortune with her chirpy attitude during her stay for the lame father, Shashanka narrates a beautiful love tale through Khoobsurat.
The narration may sound unusual and predictable on papers but despite that Shashanka’s Khoosurat is royal at heart and entertaining at large.

Khoobsurat Movie Review 

Sonam is doing her best with her chic looks and blatantly loud acting. She tries hard to be bubbly, clumpy and a loud Delhiite girl but fails miserably. Fawad, on the other hand, looks ever so charming and impresses the audience with his subtle mannerisms, good looks and acting. In fact, people will loathe Sonam, even more, ignoring her so-called trial and error acting techniques. One thing that will irritate about Sonam apart from her poor acting skills is her obsession with clicking selfies!

One reason people will be flocking the theatre will be because of Fawad Khan. He fits perfectly in the role of a Prince who secretly falls in love with Sonam the bubbly physiotherapist. Fawad’s performance as Vikramaditya Rathore is likable. The brooding man has dreamy eyes and looks that make girls go weak in their knees. Apart from the lead characters, Ratna Pathak Shah tries her best to fill in a strict mother’s role but it somehow feels similar to her Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na role. Whereas at some point we hated Kiron Kher to portray the role of Punjabi’s mom, this particular role worked for her. Her comical timings were very clean in the movie resulting in a few chuckles here and there.

One thing that people, especially girls will admire is the abundant efforts put towards the costume styling. Hats off to the team for experimenting and coming up with very unconventional looks for Sonam.


Khoobsurat is entertaining, fun and paisa-vasool. If you have been wondering “what’s all the fuss about Fawad Khan?”, don’t miss this one!
