After ‘Band Baaja Baarat’ and ‘Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl’, director Maneesh Sharma’s third flick ‘Shudh Desi Romance’ hit the silver screens on this Friday.
Though, the movie ‘Sudh Desi Romance’ revolves around three characters –Raghu Ram (Sushant Singh Rajput), Gayatri (Parineeti Chopra) and Tara (Vaani Kapoor). The movie narrates the story of a confused runaway groom.
This plot seems new in Bollywood as in previous movies alwys bride leave groom waiting in marriage ‘mandap’. But in Sudh Desi Romance, it is groom, who runs away just before his wedding rituals performed.
Director Maneesh Sharma has also tried the modern days mindset of youth through this movie.
Set in the Pink City Jaipur, the story starts with a confused youth Raghu Ram, a certified tourist guide and part-time salesman. Raghu also works for Tauji’s (Rishi Kapoor) wedding planner company. Tauji’s wedding preparation agency also provided paid baraatis (Marriage party).
On his own wedding with beautiful Tara, Raghu attracts towards Gayatri, who is attending marriage as his sister (hire). A confused Raghu changes his mid in last moment and runaway with Gayatri to start a live-in life in Jaipur.
In this stage, director has perfectly used the love, romance and thinking of modern days’ youths about marriages and committment.
If you think that jilted bride Tara is out of scene, so you are wrong. The story moves on with more drama from here. Tauji is another character to watch in this movie.
However, second-half is little bit slow and lots of confusion makes the movie dull but Sushant and Parineeti Chopra’s performance make Sudh Desi Romance a must watch flick.
If you are planning to watch a romantic flick this weekend, Sudh Desi Romance is perfect choice.
Sahara Samay gives Sudh Desi Romance three and half rating points.
