Sudh Desi Romance: Movie Review

Director: Maneesh Sharma

Writer: Jaideep Sahni

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

Introduction: India, as a country believes that marriage is a solution to all problems. The movie questions this premises.

Premise: A commitment-phobic couple meet and go through various situations wherein society expects them to get married but their phobia causes them to run.


Raghu Ram (Sushant Singh Rajput) is a tourist guide in Jaipur, who also doubles up as rental baraati for Goyal (Rishi Kapoor), a wedding planner. Raghu is suffering from pre-marital jitters. On his way to his wedding venue, Raghu meets Gayatri (Parineeti Chopra), an open-minded, free willed, independent woman who lives life on her own terms. An already confused Raghu, heavily impressed by her freedom, gathers the guts to run away from his own wedding.

A fortnight later, the two meet and begin dating. Entering into a live-in-relationship, Mr.Gupta (Tarun Vyas) is typical Desi Neighbor of Gayatri, catches raghu with gayatri and later creates some issues in Raghu’s mind, but the two decide to get married. On the day of the wedding, Gayatri runs out on him, and Raghu is left inconsolably confused.

Soon after, at a wedding, Raghu meets Tara (Vaani Kapoor), the woman he was going to tie the knot with, before he met Gayatri. She asks him out initially on a revenge trip but slowly their relationship turns serious. Just as he is about to ask her to marry him, Gayatri re-enters his life.



Acting: Parineeti and Sushant’s acting was great, Vaani Kapoor’s speech felt a little fake.

Quotable Quote: 

saara hindustan settlement karane pe laga hai… saatth saal se do padosi se settlement kara nahi paae bade chaudhary bante hain’

What I loved: The movie shows the importance of love not marriage in a relationship. It shows that girls need not be ‘good’ every time, they just need to be themselves.

Brownie Points: 4 out of 5

  1. The director is confused right from the beginning to the end about the message if any he is trying to give. The lead actress Gayatri is short of a prostitute who gets into the bed with a person she has met just for a few minutes. Lot of flaws in the movie. Any decent lady would slap an unknown person suddenly kissing her when on his trip to get married. The movie would have just finished right afterwards. The other lady (Tara’s) charatcer has hardly been developed in the movie. She appears and disappears like a Russian spy. What a boring movie this one is. Rishi Kapur’s acting is great and Sushant has acted well but miscast in the overall role. The movie gets a single star from me.
