Love stories can never go out of fashion, at least in Bollywood. Khushboo, directed by Rajesh Ram Singh, tells the story of a Sikh girl and a Tamil boy, the ups and downs in their relationship, but before you draw parallels with the classic Ek Duuje Ke Liye, let's clarify that the two movies are as diverse as chalk and cheese. In terms of content as also execution.
If at all Khushboo bears any uncanny resemblance, it's with Jab We Met and also, to an extent, A Walk In The Clouds [which has been rehashed by several dream merchants in Bollywood]. The aces in Khushboo include some stunning locales of North India and Adnan Sami's melodious musical score. But the problem with Khushboo is that it falls prey to an uninspiring script.
Ambitious Raghu [Rishi Rehan] needs to go to Chandigarh before his posting to New York. For Raghu, career takes top priority in his life. In Chandigarh, he seems to be destined to cross path with a girl, to whom he is inadvertently drawn. But each time Pinky [Avantikka] flits away, even before he can approach her. When they do meet and get to know each other, they realize that they share a very strong bonding. And as usual Pinky once again vanishes from Raghu's life.
