Khoobsurat - Be Dazzled by the Beauty of Love
3 June 2000 | by (Maryland, U.S.A) – See all my reviews

Khoobsurat is a clean family comedy. The story is not new but the film succeeds in entertaining the movie lovers. It's almost a remake of the old classic Bawarchi.

Sanjay Dutt has given another good performance. This is Sanjay's second film in a row, which has potential to become a hit. His last film Vaastav has been doing great at the Box office. The pleasant revelation is that Sanju Baba has matured tremendously as an actor. If Vaastav, his last film, presented him as a Mumbai don, here he comes up with a convincing portrayal as a con with a soft heart. He breezes through the antics of Sanju Shastri who enters a familyhold with the main aim of robbing them. His flair for comedy, last seen in Haseena Maan Jayegi , is exploited by the director. Urmila Matondkar looks beautiful and plays her part of an innocent girl well. Paresh Rawal is at his best as the villain with a penchant for using punch lines from popular ad campaigns. Johnny Lever in his guest appearance is okay. The film also has former Channel (V) veejay Sophia Haque who sings the "I am a flirt" number with Sanju. Besides Sanjay Dutt's solid performance and the beauty of Urmila, the sweet music by Jatin-Lalit is another highlight of the film. Songs like Mera Ek Sapna Hai, Bahut Khoobsurat and Aye Shivani sung by Sanjay Dutt himself are worth mentioning.

Overall, Khoobsurat is a fun-filled movie with some good songs. It is bound to entertain movie lovers.

First the movie struggled at the box-office. But eventually did end up as Silver Jubilee HIT.
