Shuddh Desi Romance (Movie, DVD)
Set in Jaipur, Rajasthan to emphasize on the happenings in a small town, the film's lead characters are more modern in their exploits of relationship trying to debunk the existing societal trend of arranged marriages and commitment. Sushant Singh Rajput( fresh from the success of Kai Po Che) alongside the bubbly Parineeti Chopra play the lead role. While Rishi Kapoor strikes as the nuanced performer, it is debutant Vaani Kapoor who outshines the entire cast. Directed by Maneesh Sharma and produced by Aditya Chopra.
The movie premiered at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival. Both the leading ladies of the film deserved much appreciation for their performances. Parineeti Chopra was nominated for the Best Actress while Vaani Kapoor won the Best Debut Awards at both IIFA and Filmfare Awards.
The film is essentially a triangular perspective on three modern, independent youngsters and their journey through love, relationship & commitment as they try to avoid the shackles of marriage. Set in a small culturally appropriate town in India to provide a lush contrast between the traditional society and these contemporary individuals, the characters in the movie enjoy desire, bonding but regret the prospects of marriage.
So, the hero Raghu Ram (Rajput), takes to his heels before the wedding to avoid awkward confrontations with long-time commitment. Soon, he falls in love with this another girl who deserts him before the wedding for the same reason. Funny and memorable moments endure at the scenes where the hero tries to hook up with his former spouse-to-be and decides to propose to her. At a private occasion, he finds the two ladies of his life sitting right besides each other sending mixed reactions to the hero. Rishi Kapoor as the lamenting middle-aged wedding planner punches his role into the limelight with humor.
This triangular confusion is well-performed by the characters and music by Sachin-Jigar energizes the movie into an international love story.
