    Khoobsurat [2014] Movie Review

    Poster :

    Movie Review Rating - 2.5 / 5

    Genre : Romantic Comedy
    Cast : Sonam Kapoor, Fawad Khan, Ratna Pathak Shah, Kirron Kher, Aditi Rao Hydari
    Director: Shashanka Ghosh
    Writer : Indira Bisht


    The film starts off with the introduction of a professional
    physiotherapist Mili Chakravarthy (Sonam Kapoor) who is a self-confessed
    'spontaneous personality'.

    She is in charge of treating the players of IPL's Kolkata Knight
    Riders' team, an 'achievement' that qualifies to get her a
    suitable match, according to her typical Punjabi mother Manju
    Chakravarthy (Kirron Kher).

    Due to the inability of Mili's colleague to go to the royal
    house, Mili fills in for him to treat the King of the palace.

    Right from the word go, the very vocally outspoken Mili finds
    herself to be a 'royal misfit' in the royal palace of
    Sambhalgarh, which is 'manned' by the lady of the house,
    Queen Nirmala Devi Rathore (Ratna Pathak Shah).

    She is a noisy eater, has questionable table manners,
    drinks wine straight from the bottle, and thinks
    nothing of joining the kitchen orderlies in a riotous

    Nirmala's life revolves around her family members which
    consists of her husband Shekhar Rathore (Aamir Raza Hussain),
    son Vikram Rathore (Fawad Khan), and daughter Divya.

    Besides taking charge of the lives of her family members,
    she also is the person in charge of all the business
    dealings and maintenance of the royal legacy.

    However, the well maintained decorum of the Rathore
    household goes for a toss the very moment Mili enters there to
    treat Nirmala's husband Shekhar, who has been confined to a wheel
    chair for more than ten years due to an unfortunate accident which
    not only claimed their eldest son, but also left him paralyzed since.

    In due course of treating Shekhar, Mili realizes that there's
    more than what meets the eye.

    That's when she changes her course of treatment by befriending
    the King and making his life livelier and fun.

    Despite the fact that Nirmala and Vikram do not like Mili due to
    her brash behavior, they gradually come to terms with her after
    seeing Shekhar respond very positively to her treatments.

    Despite Vikram being engaged to a royal and rich Kiara
    (Aditi Rao Hydari), he starts liking Mili, even though being
    aware that there is nothing similar in them!

    By now, Mili also starts nurturing similar feelings for him,
    but refrains from confessing as she learns about Vikram's
    engagement with Kiara.

    Will Vikram choose Mili over Kiara as his life partner and
    does Mili succeed in treating Shekhar?
    And above all, will Mili manage to melt Nirmala Devi's toughened heart
    is what forms the rest of the film's story.

    Actor Performance

    Sonam Kapoor dives enthusiastically into the role of the bubbly Mili and
    comes up with a delightfully droll star turn, investing the character
    with both elfin charm and infectious goofiness.

    Fawad Khan provides the perfect foil, delivering an impressively
    consistent performance.

    Ratna Pathak Shah and Aamir Raza Hussain add to the uniqueness of the

    Positive Points

    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.

    The songs of the movie is one of the positive point.

    Negative points

    One key driving force behind the original hit was the brilliantly workaday
    dialogue penned by Gulzar.

    The remake may not be quite up there in that crucial respect,

    Story starts on a fresh promising note,
    but the story goes for a toss in the second half as all
    the characters seem to have lost idea about the plot.


    Khoobsurat is a pretty good show.
    It feel good, easy, breezy, gorgeous and inoffensive.
    Watch it once.
    It won’t hurt but its many flourishes are delivered in measures
    that religiously avoid excess.
