Suddh Desi Romance
Casts: Sushant Singh Rajput, Parineeti Chopra, Vaani Kapoor and Rishi Kapoor
Banner: Yash Raj Films
Director: Maneesh Sharma
Producer: Aditya Chopra
Writer: Jaideep Sahni
Music: Sachin Sanghvi and Jigar Saraiya
Release Date: 6th September 2013
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 relationship.
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.
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.
My “Gut Feel” and preview:
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 release.
