Movie Review: Khoobsurat

Cast: Sonam Kapoor, Fawad Khan, Kirron Kher, Ratna Pathak Shah

Khoobsurat is an official remake of the popular 1980 film “Khubsoorat” staring the ever green Rekha, here Sonam Kapoor plays the role of Mili and as I expected this could be one of her weakest performance till date even the movie is boring and irritating, her constant habit of taking selfies and talking continuously irritates you more than anything, the film had a superb scope but it all went in drain because of the script. The script is too weak and the even Sonam cannot do anything here. She wears very attractive and youth full clothes (one of the best parts of movie) and that the only good point about this movie and also the saving ray comes from Fawad Khan who looks dapper and looks like a real prince.

Mili (Sonam Kapoor) is a doctor who comes to a kings palace to take care of king but the king himself does not want to get well so Mili has enough time to pass and take selfies and do Yoga in the garden and interfere whenever she can in other peoples life, there is not much story to tell you guys here as I found it difficult to actually find story here. The original movie had super funny dialogues and had a quiet simple story but it was very well executed. But this one is complete waste of talent, the film has some fantastic names like Kirron Kher and Ratna Pathak Shah but both are type casted here.

Music of the film is nice but its not enough at all, dialogues are also very weakly written but there are some funny scenes specially between Mili and her mother Manju (Kirron Kher). Movie belongs to Sonam Kapoor who tries her best to look superb in every scene but I really liked Fawad Khan.


I am going with 2.5 Bits out of 5 for Shashanka Ghosh’s Khoobsurat, watch it if you so want to watch it or leave it and wait for October 2nd!
