REKHA- TOBER = REKHA + OCTOBER
All that’s awesome about Rekha, all throughout October.
[ Rekha ji rules the whole month of October, and not even Big B’s birthday can overrule this . Coz I said so. Rekha turns 56 on the 10th of October, and we are celebrating her works and her streak of awesomeness, all this month on OKS and a whole league of Bolly blogs out there. For more on Rekha Month, follow the twitter hashtag – #Rekhatober. All blogs will be indexed on Bollypop.in and also watch out for the Rekhatober sidebar here. ]
Khubsoorat is a gem in every sense of the word. It is mindblowingly entertaining with effervescent enthusiasm of Rekha’s character – Manju and a brilliant ensemble cast which supports this enthusiasm. Brilliantly written and executed by none other than the maestro of middle-class common man Indian cinema – Hrishida (Hrishikesh Mukherjee ). I almost feel incapable of expressing correctly, how much I love this movie. It is beyond any comparison and any adjective to put it into words. So, I will just point out why I love this movie so much, and why I crown this as the BEST REKHA MOVIE EVER. Needless to say, this process will be aided by a big lineup of screenshots, so hold on to your seat-belts. I officially declare #Rekhatober open. Let the celebrations begin.
So many reasons to love Khubsoorat
P.S. Spoilers if you haven’t watched this legendary movie already. In which case, I suggest you to run like the wind and grab the DVD for this. And P.S.2 LONG POST.
Let’s begin with ..
Nirmala Gupta and the Gupta family breakfast
Dina Pathak rules this movie with her spot-on portrayal of the strict-mum of the house – Nirmala Gupta. Not even her husband is spared from her disciplinary code of conduct. Everyone eats breakfast together, and at 8.30 am in the morning. And no one dares to make the dining hall dirty. And if someone does it, he/she has to rectify it. Not even her husband is allowed to break the rule. It all establishes the fact that the Guptas are a very disciplined bunch and the head of the family is Mommy Nirmala . But well, Dadamoni cannot let go of his playful naughtyness 🙂
