Ensembled in wedding fripperies, a guy bumps into a girl in a bus, both get into a romping conversation and then gets the shock of his life as he sees her light up a cig. A little later, she is stumped as he kisses her unawares. But instead of kicking up a storm, she gawks at him while he changes his seat as the moment turns awkward. This is exactly what “Shuddh Desi Romance” translates into — “Pure Indian Romance” sans any qualms, to be precise.
Barely two movies old, director Maneesh Sharma (of Band Bajaa, Baraat fame) eschews all Bollywood cliches to create a “romantic movie” that doesn’t end up in a big fat wedding, and that, I believe is liberating! To begin with, “Shuddh Desi Romance” is the story of two footloose, altar-phobics who ditch the society's syllabus in a bid to find love by only following their heart.
