Story line: YRF's 'Shuddh Desi Romance' is a
fresh, desi and a typical love story about the hair-raising minefield between
love, attraction and commitment. It's a romantic comedy that tells it like it
Shuddh Desi Romance, by its name itself, is evident will
be a pure, unadulterated rustic love story. And true to its name the makers
have roped in Sushant Singh Rajput, Parineeti Chopra and Vaani Kapoor to star
in this love triangle which is set in the backdrop of Jaipur, a lush locale in
Rajasthan. The movie is the journey of three restless young people who junk the
society's syllabus for finding love and decide to follow their heart. When
their lives crisscross, their beliefs get challenged, and their loves are
Sushant Singh Rajput plays the role of a casual
"Boy-next-door" Raghu, and Parineeti Chopra plays the bold role of
Gayatri as Raghu's lover. The film also stars debutante Vaani Kapoor, who plays
the role of a contemporary girl. The characters of Parineeti Chopra and Vaani
Kapoor are poles apart. While the former plays a desi rural girl, the latter
plays an urban chick in the film.
Sushant Singh Rajput as Raghu is seen getting naughty and
romancing individually with both the actress, Parineeti Chopra as Gayatri and
Vaani Kapoor as Tara, along with some ifs and buts here. As a desi guy, he does
not believe in love, and believes only in attraction. He is seen professing the
same to the leading ladies who herself has no qualms in having a live-in
Know more about the
captain of the Ship, the director: Maneesh Sharma studied filmmaking at CalArts, Maneesh worked as an associate
director on Trona (2004), an English-German student film shot in Los Angeles.
Two months after his return from the US, he got a break
and started his Bollywood career as an associate director and an assistant
director on a number of Yash Raj Films productions such as Fanaa (2006), Aaja
Nachle (2007) and Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi (2008), before making his feature
directing debut with Band Baaja Baaraat (2010) (English title: The Wedding
Planner), based on his own story. Sharma's first outing as a director garnered
him India's prestigious Filmfare Award in the Best Debut Director category.
His movie Ladies vs Ricky Bahl, produced by Aditya Chopra,
was released on 9 December 2011. The critically acclaimed film stars Anushka
Sharma and Ranveer Singh. Sharma's latest film Shuddh Desi Romance (English
title: A Random Desi Romance) screens in the Gala Presentation section of the
2013 Toronto International Film Festival.
In case of “Ladies
vs Ricky Bahl”, director failed to leave the lasting impression however it
seems, that with “Shuddh Desi Romance” (SDR) he has hit the right cord. SDR
would have the similar spark and energy that of his debut film “Band Baaja Baraat”.
SDR seems to have
the enticement of light hearted romantic comedy with a mixed spice of both
realistic and embroidered situations and performances. Lead actors Sushant
Singh Rajput and Parineeti Chopra are looking great in the promos. Over all
packaging of the film looks attractive and peppy, this will attract the
audience specially the youth.
Yash Raj Films
banner gives this movie an extra edge as this production house is known for putting
the best of the efforts in marketing the product for optimum commercial benefit.
I am optimistic
that SDR would offer entertainment with value for money to the audiences and will
do decent box office business.
With expectation of
not so complicated storyline , light hearted romantic comedy and decent performances
I would give “Shuddh Desi Romance” 3.5 out of 5 stars, five days before the
