Sonam Kapoor shines in this drama filled movie along with Fawad Afzal Khan, Kirron Kher and Ratna Pathak.
Its a sure one time watch for lovers of light hearted dramas with situational humor.

The Movie Backdrop

While one might have expected this movie to be a sort of remake of a similar named movie of early 1980's- Khoobsurat starring Rekha, where Rekha was shown as a girl who tries to break the rigid rules of a joint Indian middle class family, this movie apart from some similarities has freshness and modern touch to it.
The Movie was produced by Siddharth Roy Kapur along with Anil Kapoor, and one can see that Sonam Kapoor who is his daughter does gets a lot of limelight!

The story in brief and personal opinion

Mrinalini ';Milli'; Chakravarty (Sonam Kapoor) is a physiotherapist who works for the IPL. Mrinalini's services are called for by a royal family where the older man(King)'s legs are failing him.

There she meets the rigid Queen Nirmala Devi Rathore (Ratna Pathak), who is very keen on imposing strict rules and regulations on all members of her family and is not very impressed by Milli.
Milli meets Yuvraj Vikram Singh Rathore (Fawad Afzal Khan), the prince, and son of the family. His nature too looks guided much by the family's strict rules.

Here is a Video from the Movie:

The story then is a course through ups and downs between Milli and her relation with the family, culminating in her and the Prince becoming lovers, The King getting normal owing to Milli's persistent efforts and his own efforts, and also the queen getting over her strictness and becoming fun loving.
We also see Kirron Kher's typical solid dialogues full of wit and humor. The scene where she confronts The Queen is worth watching.
One of the songs of the movie "Abhi toh Party Shuru Hui Hai" became a big hit.

Overall, a thumbs up from my side especially if one wants to watch a movie to indulge in some stress-beating over the weekend.
