SHUDDH DESI ROMANCE (PURE INDIAN ROMANCE) BOLLYWOOD, HINDI/ENGLISH SUBTITLES

For Western audiences there is nothing unusual about a scenario revolving around crippled commitment; a huge percentage of couples live together without the shackles of a marriage certificate, it is recognized; a state, previously shunned, now monumentally practiced.

But in India, with a tradition, going back to the Vedic period (1500-500 BC, and the iconic “Sita/Ram” fable) of “arranged marriages” this love story pushes the boundaries of the norm,  still prevalent in contemporary India. Director Maneesh Sharma gifts audiences two remarkably different women: “Gayatri” (Parinetti Chopra), fiercely flamboyant, a chain- smoker, flagrantly defying or embracing any vestiges of historical constraints; she is the mistress of her passions and life; and “Tara” (Vaani Kapoor) a metaphor for pervasive customs, willing to accept an arranged, garlanded relationship, her strengths slowly unveiled, titillating and garnishing respect from the viewer.

“Raghu” (Sushant Singh Rajput) is a feckless, charming cad, vacillating between two lovers, indecisive, swayed by the ineluctable flutter of his pulse; in actuality, he is the weakest segment of the romance; lacking substantiality and viability, worthy of these women.

The conclusion of “Shuddh Desi Romance” has Eastern movie attendees (in the millions) humming; iconoclastic , unnerving, lacerating the expected; erasing a staid, intransigent, predictable outcome; in essence, freeing, refreshing, exuberant; lusting for more in the same stratum.

THREE STARS!!!

  1. We watched it yesterday and my friends (who have children that are reaching marriageable ages were extremely worried about their wards get to catch this movie!!) hahaha

    • SURPRISINGLY, IT WAS THE YOUNG INDIANS WHO DISAPPROVED OF THE ENDING; WHILE THE OLDER FOLKS RECOGNIZED THAT THIS IS THE WAY OF THE FREE WORLD. THANK YOU FOR COMMENTING! P.
