About Movie:

The movie revolves around the robinhood type man Sanju (Sanjay Dutt) who has a kind heart and helps orphans doing small robberies. He gets into a fight with Jogia Seth (Paresh Rawal), a smuggler whom he owes rupees 50 lakhs. Sanju has to make the money in a month if he wants save himself and Gudia, an orphan girl who becomes a hostage. So Natwar (Johnny Lever) suggest an idea to Sanju to rescue himself and gudia. Natwar advises Sanju to go in to the Chaudhary house as Sanju Shastri and steal the money from house. As Sanju has no other choice, he decides to enter the Chaudhary Villa as their NRI relative. Sanju starts befriending the members of the Chaudhary family by bringing gifts with them for each individual member in family. The Chaudhary Parivar has three brothers: the elder one is Dilip (Om Puri), an honest man and takes care of the family business,Second is Mahesh (Ashok Saraf) a gambler, the third one Satish (Late Jatin Kanakia ) is not able to speak fluently. Shivani (Urmila Matondkar) is the daughter of Dilip. She is beautiful but without confidence in herself and she thinks she is responsible for killing her mother. This makes the whole family worried about Shivani’s marriage. Sanju comes on the scene and wins everybody's hearts by solving their problems. Obviously, she falls in love with Sanju. The rest of the film is about how Sanju transforms Shivani from a simple girl to a modern confident girl and unites the rest of the family and in the process He falls in love with shivani.

Khoobsurat is a good family movie with bit comedy. Although story is not new but the film succeeds in entertaining the audience(movie lovers). It’s almost a remake of the old classic Bawarchi ..Hrishikesh Mukherjee's film in which Rajesh Khanna played the role of Bawarchi. Sanjay Dutt has given another good performance. This is Sanjay’s second film in a row, which has potential to become a hit after his film Vaastav. Urmila Matondkar looks beautiful and plays her part of an innocent girl very well. Paresh Rawal is at his best as the villain with a pinch of comedy using lines from popular advertizes. Johnny Lever in his guest appearance is okay. Besides Sanjay Dutt's 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.
