Movie Review: Shuddh Desi Romance (2013)

Box Office: Hit

SHUDDH DESI ROMANCE is the journey of three restless young people who junk the society’s syllabus for finding love and decide to follow their heart.

Raghu (Sushant Singh Rajput), a tourist guide in Jaipur, wants a love in his life, and that’s it. The rest he’s going to figure out along the way.

Gayatri (Parineeti Chopra), a part-time instructor in an English speaking institute, has been around the block a few times and knows the scene, warts and all.

Tara (Vaani Kapoor), who’s dying to get out there and fly, knows what’s right for her, but a little experimenting never hurt anybody, did it?

When their lives crisscross, their beliefs get challenged, and their loves, tested.

We all want it all…the love, the attraction, the relationship, the commitment. But when we get it, it may not be in the way we recognize.

SHUDDH DESI ROMANCE: a romantic comedy which tells it like it is; and like it isn’t.

2.5 “SHUDDH DESI ROMANCE is a confusing tale of conflicting emotions. It could have been an interesting off-beat movie”
2.5 “Although not as good as ‘Band Baaja Baarat’ and ‘Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl’, Maneesh Sharma’s third directorial venture is jhataak, peppy and colourful but still turns out only to be a onetime watch! “
