Now this one’s a romantic comedy which is actually an ode to the original film of the same name; released way back in 1980 starring none other than Rekha.
The music is foot-tapping while the promos are looking funny, but the big question is – will Sonam Kapoor be able to reprise the role which made Rekha won her first ‘Filmfare Best Actress Award’ ?
Our in-house expert and ace astro-numerologist Bhavikk Sangghvi predicts the fate of this Disney India and Anil Kapoor Film Company joint venture:
“The title ‘KHOOBSURAT’ is adding up to Number 39 – this octave of Number 3 (Jupiter) is neither fortunate nor unfortunate. It indicates strong mental faculties of a person. But that person will have the tendencies to put all materials things on one side – not because one has to, but because they wish to do so. Hence this number can be powerful or indifferent depending upon the will or desire of that person” explains Bhavikk.
“As per the numerological meaning derived, it seems the film will fail to strike a chord with the audience and the comparisons with the cult film shall make matters worse” predicts Bhavikk.
“Also, the fate of most films rely heavily on the personal ‘stars’ (read luck) of its lead protagonist and in this case Sonam’s (9th June 1985) fortunes in today’s date are not in top order; and that shall dampen the prospects of the film to a major extent” he adds.
“Add to that, the release date of the film 19th September 2014 – a day primarily ruled by Sun (Number 1) has a direct clash with Number 3 (in this case the title vibration) and Number 9 (Sonam’s birth number)” justifies Bhavikk.
“But having said that; she will deliver a free-spirited performance nevertheless and add a few more fans in her kitty” he adds further.
“As for her Pakistani co-star Fawad Khan (29th November 1982); he will also deliver a sincere act; but the effort may not be rewarding since it will largely go unnoticed”.
“Last but not the least; for producer Siddharth Roy Kapur (2nd August 1972) it will be yet another blow (right after the recent debacle of ‘Raja Natwarlal’) and also for Anil Kapoor (24th December 1956) mainly along with daughter Rhea Kapoor; since she’s still hasn’t tasted success and not been able to establish his production company as yet” signs off Bhavikk on a clear note.
