SHUDH DESI ROMANCE

There is nothing desi about this romance, except the locales and clothes..and its not romance but passion.Its about a boy Raghuram Sitaram (Sushant Rajput) , who is an orphan and does odd jobs, he runs away from his marriage,because he is always confused and doesnt want to take any responsibility. Then he meets a modern girl Gayatri( Pariniti Chopra) who lives alone works , had many boy friends , even an abortion, and they all left her, so now she doesnt want any permanent relationship. They have instant physical attraction and start living together.Now when they decide to mary, she runs away from the marriage.Then Raghu meets the girl Tara whom he left and initially looking for and giving an apology, both of them get together,then somewhere they meet Gayatri.....Ultimately Rahu and Gayatri live together without marriage because none of them is ready for responsibility.

It is such a confused director's version, none of the character is well defined...Take Raghu, he is good for nothing, i wonder why would any girl love him, he is neither dashing , nor well placed, nor educated,on top of that he is all the time confused, indecisive.....One thing I totally disliked is that he was conning foreigner's by telling them fake sobbing stories..and till the end, nowhere he is shown to realise that this is very wrong, he is spoiling the reputation of Indians, hero cant be like that....

Now take Gayatri....She wants to live an independent life..fine..lives with many boyfriends..but  even free people have a heart and it hurts, she herself says that, but she is not ready to change that style...

And Tara(vani)..She is totally a girl who lives in dreams, I mean which girl can be like her..a boy ditches her, a boy like Raghu..She is shown always well dressed, stylish, and still she starts loving him and finding him with Gayatri, in one minutes that love dissolves and she is free......

This is the story of three irresponsible adults who never even learn from their mistakes..
Sushant as an actor is Ok, but always shown sloppily dressed and hemming....Pariniti is good , both in looks and acting, Vani is good only on few shots, but the shining star is Rishi Kapoor as a caterer and in a way guardian of the youngsters.

BOSS
It looks like 80's movie with totally corrupt police, buffoonish politicians and rigid and principled teacher  and super hero....nothing good about it,,,

nice review. I saw a few scenes yesterday and found the movie a bit boring. I do not think Sushant Singh Rajput is a hero material and Vani Kapoor is very average. Parineeti has only one style- that of an aggressive north Indian girl. Over all a passable movie.

Totally agree with the review of SDR. it was such a brainless piece of cinema agree to every single word you said.

Totally agree with the review of SDR. Such a mindless brainless bit of cinema. Yea the actors are pleasant to the eye so you can sit through it if you have will of steel .

Namaste.....
Ideas, thoughts on romance are as diverse as people in the universe. Some people are better at telling it.

Hope you are well.
peace.

Agree with your review Renu, the movie was a complete waste of time...

Do please watch Lunch Box. Here's how the movie left an impact on me -

Agree with the review. I watched it in the theatre and hated it. Neither the storyline nor the performances were impressive.

Haha. The confused director and the three irresponsible adults remark gives the best overview of this horrible movie. People these days!

Salomie said...

Oh thanks for this, had been wanting to watch it. Will skip it now.

but maybe that is a sad truth which is shown in the movie ... maybe the new generation want to follow such a carefree lifestyle !!

ashok said...

thanks for the warning!

After looking such films and reality based serials like emotional atyachar - I find that people confuse lust with love!

Avada Kedavra said...

Sounds like a terrible movie. Good that we didnt watch it. Indians are trying to mimic western style of living these days. I remember a hollywood movie which had a similar story. I gave up in the middle. This director seems to be inspired from that movie.

Blessings and Merry Christmas to you and yours. May this season of love be the season that runs through you, your home, your family throughout the year.

peace.

Cant agree more.

Shudh desi romance and ghanchakkar were the the worst releases of 2013.
