Being remake of Rekha's 1980 movie by the same name,
Khoobsurat claimed much attention as to whether Sonam
Kapoor will be able to match the excellence of legendary actress
Rekha or Khoobsurat ends up being another
Well, as tip-off from our reviewer from the film premier, the
movie Khoobsurat directed by Shashanka
Ghosh is most likely to impress and delight the kids. Produced
by Disney, Sonam Kapoor's Khoobsurat appears to be a
little too much colourful.
While, the original version of the film featuring Rekha offered
a much more sensible and all-round performed flick, Sonam Kapoor's
Khoobsurat appeared more or less average. The movie seemed
all in all a Sonam Kapoor film with nothing much left for the other
actors to do.
However, Ratna Pathak and Kirron Kher offered some hilarious
moments, Fawad Khan who plays the Royal Prince had nothing much to
offer other than having a serious look onto his face.
To talk about the story, Sonam Kapoor as Dr. Mili
(physiotherapist) gets a call from the Royal abode to cure Fawad
Khan's father who suffers some physical disorder. Ratna Pathak
plays Fawad Khan's mother and the actress had very limited scope to
exhibit her talent. Kirron Kher appears as Sonam Kapoor's mother
who added most of the fun to the film. Sonam Kapoor shows that she
is a mismatch in the family in all possible ways.
In the course of time, Sonam Kapoor who otherwise is a complete
misfit in regard to the Royal etiquette falls in love with Fawad
Khan. Sonam and Fawad's chemistry was good but to know what happens
to the love story, you will have to watch the film.
Although, Khoobsurat is hard to impress the audience
(except below 16), second half of the movie seemed interesting as
compared to the first half.
In a nut shell, Sonam Kapoor and Fawad Khan's
Khoobsurat directed by Shashanka Ghosh will not disappoint
you only if you never watchedRekha's version of the film.

One of the few positive aspects from the movie is the chemistry
between Sonam and Fawad, however that also could not lift the movie
Sonam Kapoor Too Colourful
Being produced by Disney, the film seemed to be too much
colourful, in terms of presentation and characters which makes us
believe that the film is more for the kids.
Ratna Pathak is one talented actress who unfortunately given
very limited scope to display her brilliant comic timing. However,
the actress did well in whatever scope she had.
Kirron Kher can be the saviour of the film, if at all it
survives, as she offered some funny moments, thanks to her amazing
Although, Fawad Khan has already proved his metal as an actor
but the film Khoobsurat did not offer this Pakistani actor to offer
much of expressions, other than wearing a serious look. However, he
did justice to his role.
Although, all the characters were okay in their performance, the
main drawback is the story telling. When you are making a remake of
an already hit flick that too having an actress like Rekha, the
director should have been extra cautious about the plot and

All in all, Shashanka Ghosh's Khoobsurat can be a one-time
watch. But be aware, comparisons with Rekha's version will surely
