Hrishikesh Mukherjee's Khubsoorat is a fantastic and simple family entertainment. It is well written, well acted and directed, and is thoroughly funny and exciting. I enjoyed every moment of it, including the songs, the story, the characters, and everything else it dealt with. Khubsoorat presents the brighter side of Hindi cinema, which is not melodramatic, which is more restrained and easy-going. The charm of this little gem comes from its depiction of simple everyday issues, but it also manages to make a genuine impact on the viewer. It portrays upper-class urban families beautifully, it is realistic throughout, and the acting is natural. The ever-amazing Rekha presents a different side of her personality. She lets go of her enigmatic sex-appeal and switches her exotic beauty with a tomboyish, endearingly naive look of a smart and witty girl-next-door. The result is effective - her comic timing is brilliant, and the zest she adds into her character makes Manju Dayal very memorable. Ashok Kumar is as always wonderful, gracious and likable all through as the kindhearted father, Dina Pathak is impressive as the overly strict mother, and Rakesh Roshan and Shashikala support well. I must note my favourite sequences towards the climax when Ashok Kumar's character falls ill and Manju worryingly looks after him. The scene in which he wakes up and realises she was there taking care of him was very moving. All in all, whoever you are, do watch Khubsoorat, it will make you feel much better. A pleasurable watch indeed!
Another superb family movie from Hrishikesh Mukherjee.The story revolves around a family strictly bounded by rules and regulations implemented by their mother (Dina Pathak).Then Rekha enters in this family and the real fun begins.This is one of the best movies of Rekha and she gave her finest performance in this movie. The other supportive cast is superb, Ashok Kumar appears in the role of a lovable father who knows how to enjoy the life. Rakesh Roshan also fits in his role of an obedient son who falls in love with Rekha. Ranjit Chowdhary has the role of a teenager boy and he gave the full justice to it. In brief, KHUBSOORAT is a complete family entertainment and I recommend this film to everyone from kids to adults.
This movie is what I call a must-watch. While it is very natural in its presentation it gives a strong message as well. With all the talk of love and freedom today it becomes even more important to see this movie which goes a step beyond and puts freedom and love in their true perspective - no freedom comes without a sense of responsibility; love alone is not enough, one needs to realize the responsibility that comes with it. This simple but profound wisdom is conveyed with great spontaneity. The movie also teaches about the thin line between rules that help and rules that are uncomfortably binding. All this in one funny, homely three hour package that is a very wholesome entertainer. Absolutely beautiful!
Her Excellency Very Great Madam Actress Rekha has done excellent work. His Divine Grace Late Actor Ashok Kumar has done excellent work. I watched this movie in Chanakaya, Chanakyapuri, New Delhi with my cousin His Excellency Very Great Mr. Anil Lalwani and his wife Her Excellency Pooja. It was excellent day in the summer of 1980. What a theater in those days. What a movie. Thanks and Regards.
This is movie from a different era - reminds you of the times when the values were different. Joint family and obeying elders were the norm and individuality would take a back seat. Rekha challenges the joint family rules and brings in a fresh breath of life to the stifled family members. Values and lifestyles are changing, albeit slowly, and this movie reminds you of the days when you had fun with such simple things Rekha and all the cast members do an excellent job in this movie. The characterization is such that you get to know every member of the family. This is one of the best of the simple clean movies of 80's
