Movie review : Shuddh Desi Romance

Submitted by admin on Fri, 2013-09-06 17:21
Runaway Groom, Runaway Bride And A Runaway Romance...

Film: Shuddh Desi Romance
Producer: Aditya Chopra
Director: Maneesh Sharma
Cast: Sushant Singh Rajput, Parineeti Chopra, Rishi Kapoor and introducing Vaani Kapoor 
Genre: Rom-com
Verdict: ***1/2

By Roshmila Bhattacharya 

Finally a film that dares to lock lips uninhibitedly, questions the tradition of the saat pheras in a land where marriage is sacrosanct and dares to says that when you love someone you keep the door open and not shut it to keep the person in.
 
Plot: Hitch, take a hike!
Raghu Ram Sitaram (Sushant Singh Rajput) is en route to tie the knot with a beautiful stranger, Tara, (Vaani Kapoor) when he locks eyes... and lips... with Gayatri (Parineeti Chopra) who's been hired' to pose as his sister. And ends up taking a loo break... 
He isn't single for long. Convincing Gayatri that the physics, chemistry, biology between them needs to be studied more, he moves in with the girl who during their first meeting had boldly confessed to three affairs and later admits to one abortion. Overcoming the initial bursts of jealousy, insecurity, possessiveness and the fear of being dumped, the two soon settle into compatible domesticity. 
 
Trouble brews in their chai cup when during a Diwali night of drunken revelry he proposes, she accepts, and Goel saab (Rishi Kapoor), the wedding planner they moonlight for, herds the commitment-shy lovers into a mandap. This time it's Gayatri who beats Raghu to the loo.
It's over and out for this runaway bride and groom. Tara wanders back into Raghu's life determined to make him realize how it feels to be ditched at the altar. He is ready to make amends. Then... 
 
Aces: On the write path
Shuddh Desi Romance works largely for its refreshingly different screenplay that mocks at the marriage ritual where everything from the paid-for-baraatis (wedding party) to the feelings of the often compromised bride-and-groom is fake, paying lip-service to society when the lips want someone else. 
 
The lines are snappy, particularly when it's the girls speaking. They are unabashed about their desires, unapologetic about failed romances and unfazed in a scenario that is definitely not stereotyped Bollywood. 
 
Full marks to them, in particular Parineeti Chopra for giving us a heroine who is bold but not brazen, winsome but not wanton. She is definitely one of the finds of the decade. She doesn't act, she reacts, and is unselfconsciously natural whether she is shaving her legs or puffing on a cigarette. 
 
Sushant Singh Rajput moves from macho to mellow. The angry young man of Kai Po Che! is lost and lovelorn here, playing the small-town Romeo with effortless charm. 
 
And then there's Rishi Kapoor who leaves Rauf Lala and the Dawood-like Don behind to play a fatherly figure with tongue-in-cheek humour. 
 
Maneesh Sharma who strayed with Ladies Vs Ricky Behl, is more in control here, playing out an unconventional love story in the Pink City that even today is associated with Sooraj Barjatya's marry-go-rounds, Hum Aapke Hain Koun!, Hum Saath Saath Hain and Vivah! The touristy ambience, the old-meets-new mix and the vibrant colours are eye-catching!
 
Minuses: Pacing problems post interval
After a fun-filled first half, the tempo slows down. Vaani and Sushant try to make up for Parineeti's absence, but when she returns you realize just what you were missing. 
 
There's a slight hangover of Julia Robert's Runaway Bride, and too many kisses may make the fuddy daddies sniff and scowl, but forget them, it's time Hindi cinema grew up! 
 
Last word: It will be interesting to see how India reacts to this desi romance. If it's seen as ashuddh, then, matches will continue to be made in heaven and make lives hell on earth. If it clicks, then we're in the 21st century and young people have a choice instead of leaving their destinies to chance, even in the movies!

filmfare review credit johndoe2004

Director: Maneesh Sharma

Cast: Sushant Singh Rajput, Parineeti Chopra, Rishi Kapoor and Vaani Kapoor

 

So you see a girl and suddenly there's a flutter in your heart. Chances are the girl fancies you too. It seems pretty much like the template of falling in love. But the real picture can be more complex than the first burst of pheromones. No wonder they call love overrated, because it's just as easy to fall out of love as it is to fall in it. And then comes the mother of all complexities - marriage. That rush of blood in your young veins can dry up faster than your first mushy tweet. Shuddh Desi Romance (SDR) adds a spunky tadka to having cold feet before the wedding. Do you commit or do you not? Hamlet's dilemma pales in comparison. And that's exactly what makes SDR a super fun film.

 

Sushant Singh Rajput is about to tie the knot. He's speeding towards his bride-to-be in a bus full of baraatis but his mind is uneasy. He tries to find solace by flirting with Parineeti Chopra only to realise he has serious hots for her. Nonetheless he controls his urge, fights the chemistry and decides to take the plunge with his bride in waiting. But then the doubt kicks in and Sushant flies the coop leaving the beautiful Vaani Kapoor settling for a cold drink instead. Characters in SDR behave in the least expected manner. You'd think a stranded bride with garland in hand would break into a bawling fit but she sits down and asks, "Koi thanda pilao!" Ninety nine per cent men will vouch that they secretly wanted to run away from their nuptials but didn't for better sense. But Sushant Singh does just the opposite. Same goes for Parineeti Chopra who lets the smug Sushant into her heart and home, over a cup of coffee and a bowl of gulab jamun. Preposterous but interesting. People on the rebound tend to do that.

 

The characters' quirky behaviour works because it's outrageous. As if in a Woody Allen movie, they sit across the camera and explain to the audience why they behaved so. And that completes the whole set of innovative writing and direction that makes SDR so good. Jaideep Sahni is easily one of the best writing talents in our country. He needs to be employed more often. Some of the dialogue in SDR is just poetic. The one right at the end, where Sushant uses the allegory of a room and its door to explain the claustrophobic effect of commitment is just beautiful.

 

Maneesh Sharma is in his element when he's weaving a story around great Indian weddings and like he did in Band Baaja Baaraat, he exhibits masterful control on the proceedings. The Jaipur setting, the outlandish characterisations and Sachin-Jigar's rustic Indian music complements his storytelling efforts.

 

Part of what makes a successful movie is the cast. This is Sushant Singh Rajput's movie. His character Raghu is the bundle of confusion, the young Indian man working purely on impulse. And Sushant is a rage in his role. He handles comedy and romance with consummate ease. And he looks orgasmic in slow motion romantic songs. Parineeti has already proved her talent. And in a perfectly nuanced performance she adds more power to her promise. If you thought she was just the bubbly types you need to see her indulge in some tasteful erotica. And then there's the man in a professional purple patch like never before. Rishi Kapoor as a middle-aged wedding planner cum father figure is a text book of acting. He deserves a few awards and fat cheques. Vaani Kapoor who's the lightweight in the movie, occasionally punches out even the leading man. Definitely one to watch out for.

 

In case you didn't know it, there about two dozen or more kisses in SDR. Like always they titillate but here they are also a part of the neo progressive attitude of the characters. There's an exchange between Rishi Kapoor and Sushant where the young man tells the older one to look for a new business. Because the business of weddings will soon run its course. It's a hint at alternate couple partnerships like live-ins. Of how the youth just doesn't want to conform to wedding, settling down etc. And that's why SDR works. It plays out part fantasy and part reality. And it does so with the right amount of repartee.


and i love the part in bold
