I loved the characters in this movie more then I enjoyed the plot. The female leads are both mature, confident and savvy young women. They are great role models for young india. The male lead was a little slow, but adorable none-the-less. I loved how expressive his character was. It made it easy to root for him. And uncle-ji, lol, awesome parental figure. He's there to offer an opinion, but doesn't get too involved (unless he's doing business). He makes no judgements. All in all, the ensemble was great, the story a little muddled. The ending wasn't really clear cut. But I do appreciate that it introduces another way of living in traditional indian culture. Definitely recommend this movie.

Lacks the essential elements of Maneesh Sharma's previous movies (Band Baaja Baraat and Ladies Vs. Ricky Bahl). Extremely poor casting. No chemistry at all between the lead pair and Sushant Singh Rajput can't act-no idea why YRF chose to launch him. Script is incredibly weak with awfully simplistic dialogues. Story is incredibly underdeveloped. Perhaps the most disappointing element was the unimpressive music. Sharma's movies are always known for having incredible dances set to the backdrop of amazing songs. Not this one.

Confused desi Romance

One thing I have gathered from Manish Sharma and the new era of Yash Raj Films is that they have taken their old school concept of romantic love stories and turned it inside out. Like Band Baaja Baaraat and Ladies vs Ricky Bahl, Shuddh Desi Romance is a refreshing romantic comedy that challenges the Indian orthodox mindset in a very subtle, comic yet strong way. Sushant Singh, Parineeti and Vaani fill in their characters very naturally as does Rishi Kapoor. The movie casts away the prototype sentimental latter half which is usually the case in other films and keeps the mood light throughout the film. The void however lies in the way the issues of marriage and commitment are tackled. Though the movie puts forward some ideas worth thinking about it is still very blunt handed in its treatment of the idea of commitment. Maybe it just goes a bit overboard in labeling marriages as a nonsensical ritual. Nevertheless it is finally a film and a film which keeps you entertained and provides food for thought. Take the nicer ideas from this but don't become a radical!

Vani Kapoor and Parineeti, awesome acting as always.

One of the best romantic films ever made in Bollywood, and also one of the ballsiest. You don't want to miss this film.

This "pure" concept of love and naive infatuation has its own niche of melodramatics to cater. I luvd the way Manish has in his distinctive style crafted this small town story with oodles of freshness and dexterity. Slick performance from the leads and an apparently show stealing Rishi as the spearhead. However our tinsel town in a rather brisk pace is matching dear hollywood's "god knows why lip lock moments" . Miss those HAHK and MPK era when I wouldn't need to prepare a research thesis b4 takin ma folks to the theatre .

A not well scripted movie seems to fail entirely when it comes to performance giving an idea as to may be the director was more confused than the actor. One might wait for first 15 minutes than half an hour and then finally an hour for the actual movie/story or rather something interesting to happen and finally giving up hope of seeing anything interesting. Even promising actors like Parineeti and Sushant Singh who have given wonderful performances earlier fail to impress. All in all a dumb and boring movie.
