Comedy, Romance

Raghu (Sushant Singh Rajput) is resigned to an arranged marriage: "In India, there's no love, no romance. Say yes to marriage and sort it all out later." On the way to the ceremony, he flirts with Gayatri (Parineeti Chopra) one of the guests, and impulsively leaves his bride, Tara (Vaani Kapoor) at the altar. Trying to reinvent the rom com for the modern era is a tough job in any country, and Shuddh Desi Romance limps across the screen. Sushant is puppydog cute but a lousy actor. Does he actually prefer one girl to another? Hard to tell. Parineeti is spunky, but does she care for Raghu? Why is she so contrary? And, what does Tara want? To sleep with Raghu, just to prove herself desirable? Although the girls are in control, the whole puzzling affair feels too slight for the lengthy run time. Skip this desi romance.
