Shuddh Desi Romance(review)
Shuddh Desi Romance (SDR) might be branded as a film revolving majorly around live-in relationships, but the fact remains that it is not just about that. The romantic drama is beautifully layered with various confusions and conflicts the young and restless GenNext faces when it comes to love and commitment. Shuddh Desi Romance too deals with the similar subject, but fails to deliver what people are actually looking out for, and that’s true love, genuine emotions and feelings. This film is stuffed with a few really confusing characters who claims to be in love and enjoys their favourite hobby of running away from their own marriages, over some stupid and baseless reasons. We aren’t taking sides here, but is it really necessary to insult or mock the holy institution of marriage in the name of love?
Shuddh Desi Romance may look like candy floss, pink wala love type’s romantic movie featuring a regular love with Sushant, Parineeti Chopra and newbie Vaani Kapoor, but Sushant insists the plot is really hatke. “Interestingly, Shudh Desi Romance deals with various conflicts one faces from the time one proposes to someone to making a commitment with that person for lifetime. Once the initial hoopla of being in love dies, you seriously start thinking if you are doing a right thing by marrying that individual. It happens with all of us. Shudh Desi Romance is all about those conflicts and confusions,” said Sushant.
we get to meet the innocent looking Raghuram Shriram (Sushant Singh Rajput). Well! do not go by his name. He’s is a super confused chap, really naughty and romantic at heart. Raghu falls in love with the bold Gayatri (Parineeti Chopra), with whom he starts living together. The couple seems very much in love, until the day when they decide to get married to each other and Gayatri dumps Raghu on the day of their wedding ceremony. Then enters the beautiful Tara (Vaani Kapoor), who is actually a matured and sensible woman. Tara is the same woman, who was once dumped by Raghu in the past on their day of wedding. Well! does the plot seem really confusing? If so, there’s a lot more boredom coming up in the flick. Shuddh Desi Romance lacks soul and suffers due to its weak script. Though funny at times, on the whole, very monotonous. Shuddh Desi Romance could have got rid of some unneccesary scenes and instances, but at the end, gets stretched to an extent, when the viewers literally starts to yawn.
