Khoobsurat is really a remake of Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s 1980 film through the same title, starring Rekha within the lead role. Mili (Sonam Kapoor) is really a physio therapist in Delhi. The disposable spirited physician is distributed to Rajasthan to deal with the paraplegic Shekhar Rathore, Raja of Sambalgarh, who’s now on the motorized wheel chair.
Right after reaching, she knows that it is sometimes complicated on her to regulate within the palatial household and stick to the rules, that are strictly implemented by Nirmala Devi Rathore (Ratna Pathak). Their boy Yuvraj Singh (Fawad Khan) is about business and work. He’s engaged to some girl from Mumbai however that Mili is incorporated in the house plus they finish up investing a while together, she eventually becomes the reason behind his separation.
The movie brims with standard tropes: jodhpurs and jeans, stuffed t shirts and stiff upper lips, loose-limbed women going ‘bakar-bakar’, ‘khammaghanis’ and bristling ‘saafas’. This really is Rajasthan, so obviously the ‘rani sahiba’ is immaculately coiffed and wears bespoke printed chiffons and body fat pearls, the ‘raja sahib’ twirls his wine glass and comes his Rs. The handsome scion is worthy and well-outfitted and betrothed to some beauty (Aditi Rao Hydari) who appears to be if she’d fit well to their lifestyle of dinner in the stroke of eight, along with a starched napkin near the plate, please.
Into this becalmed set-up arrives Mili, the lady who is going to do everything wrong, and can ultimately set everything right. And everything proceeds based on plan, scattering a lot of smiles as the story goes along.
The plot, and pace, slackens among. The song-and-dance bits are totally unnecessary, even when the lyrics and also the tunes are spirited. However the relaxation makes up. Kirron Kher because the lower-to-earth Punjabi mother, who could easily sleepwalk with the role given just how much practice she’s had in internet marketing, has got the film’s best lines, and causes us to be guffaw. The gang in the structure- the chilled mama bear who’ll melt, the grouchy papa bear who’ll get rid of a leg, the oppressed girl who’ll burst free, and also the frog who’ll learn how to pucker up- are sufficient.
