Shuddh Desi Romance - Movie Reviews

I don’t know about you but for me a good film is like a tequila shot — I get giddy on it. And when a Bollywood film gives me a high, I feel like screaming from the rooftops. I loved Shuddh Desi Romance and I think you will too.

Crazy witty and a soulful twist on getting hitched

One loverboy and two lovely ladies. Live-in walk out make-up makeout. In turns. Not necessarily in that order. Confused about love and marriage they follow their heart (at times) and all that lies in between (pun!).
Times of India

Shuddh Desi Romance loses steam in the second half — it’s almost as if, suddenly, Manish and Jaideep didn’t know where to take their story and characters. Also, I’m old school, so the ending left me dissatisfied. But that doesn’t take away from what has b

Shuddh Desi Romance will meet with a mixed response. While the youth and the city audience will enjoy the unusual drama, the more orthodox and small-town audience will find it too different and bold for their liking.
A romantic meeting of two minds cannot be justified unless knots are tied and children are borne.

Bharat Student
YRF new age bride runs away from its usual Band Baaja Baarat but celebrates the 'suhaag raat' of affairs in its live in relationships with some 'real' exuberance and pride of its own grace and warmth, without resorting to the usual romantic comedy cliche's scoring rightly in those flirts (read humour) but somehow fails to establish its own 'character' and take its argument on live in relationships and marital commitments further..
India Glitz
Shuddh Desi Romance joins the long list of films that had a lot of potential but could not live up to it. A few nice scenes and witty dialogues don’t make a good film. In the end, it just left one feeling tired. Not what you expect from a frothy romcom.

Mumbai Mirror
Raghuram (Sushant Singh Rajput) is a spirited young tourist guide who earns his keeps by fleecing trippers and vacationists, and occasionally stepping in as a paid guest at weddings. He’s quite an allurer, and floors young ladies easily. It’s after attending numerous weddings as a paid guest of course, he suddenly finds roles reversed. Match maker Goel finds the altar-phobic a coy bride. Paranoid, he flees. It's then he stumbles upon the gregarious Gayatri (Parineeti Chopra). He is a flight-risk and her irresistibly affable nature knocks him off. Some pecks and puffs later, the two move in together

Shuddh Desi Romance can be also be read as a statement accounting for the friction between convention and being radical, thereby leading to emotional vulnerability and strong stance against marriage

Without being judgmental and expecting the audience to keep an open mind, the movie is a lightheaded banter on present-day reality of relationships.
