So like I've already mentioned, I went ahead and watched Khoobsurat the evening it released here on my twentieth birthday! And what a treat it was. I didn't want to walk into the theaters expecting too much but I wanted to walk out knowing that this would be one of those movies that I'll occasionally watch whenever I get bored or when I'm in the mood for a "not-too-cheesy" chick-flick. And that's exactly what happened. Albeit a predictable plot-line, it's a rather sweet watch.
-The video chats with Milli's mom-Manju and the adorable friendship they seemed to share.
-The subtle ongoing romance between both Milli and Vikram, that they keep hidden from each other for most of the movie.
-The queen's disapproving looks and constant need for obedience and how Milli wriggles her way out of those situations.
VERDICT: If you're looking for a cute rom-com mixed with a royal backdrop set in one of the majestic palaces in *Rajasthan, do give Khoobsurat a watch. I can bet you'll soon be on the hunt for your very own prince & palace after watching this :)
