  •  Koimoi -Mohar Basu Rating-7
The film begins with Shaadi Nahi Hui Glucose Ho Gaya. There are a myriad reasons why the script itself merits applause from you. Jaideep Sahni dishes out a refreshingly intelligent plot that keeps intact its steam for most part. Reminding me obstinately of Julia Roberts’ Runaway Bride in phases,

  •  Rediff -Sukanya Verma Rating-7
Call it nervousness, last-minute jitters or hesitation but the idea of going through an elaborate ceremony witnessed by a huge crowd of people you barely recognise (and is probably finding faults with your make-up) is no one's idea of everlasting bliss and triggers an unexplainable urge to run.

  •  India Today -Vinayak Chakravorty Rating-7
We are on with romancing smalltown India lately, far from the maddening exotica of Swiss Alps. Shuddh Desi Romance, coming in the wake of Raanjhanaa earlier this year, takes the Bollywood love story right into the heartland bylanes, its colourful bazaars, middle-class homes

  •  Filmfare -Rachit Gupta Rating-6
So you see a girl and suddenly there’s a flutter in your heart. Chances are the girl fancies you too. It seems pretty much like the template of falling in love. But the real picture can be more complex than the first burst of pheromones. No wonder they call love overrated, because it’s just as easy

  •  Bollywood Hungama -Taran Adarsh Rating-7
Live-in relationships are a commonality in the West, but it still raises eyebrows in India. It's often considered taboo and spoken about disapprovingly by the orthodox in towns and also by several people living in a metropolis. SHUDDH DESI ROMANCE is, perhaps, the first Hindi film

  •  Times of India -Madhureeta Mukherjee Rating-6
So there, Bollywood breaks the stereotype. It steps out from behind the bloomin' trees in tulip fields and comfortably 'shacks-up' with the times. Here 'smooch-at-first-sight' happens in a bus-full with baaratis. Coffee dates are sipped in bed (Happy Endings? Huh!).Commitment is not the criteria.

  •  Mumbai Mirror -Karan Anshuman Rating-6
The love triangle is staple mainstream Bollywood fare. How then, do director Maneesh Sharma (ofBand Baaja Baaraat fame) and one of the finest contemporary writers, celebrated Jaideep Sahni (Khosla ka Ghosla, Chak De, Rocket Singh) hit the refresh button on the eternal triangle?

  •  Indian Express -Shubra Gupta Rating-5
The nicest part of this romcom, which triangulates girl-boy-girl in a manner Bollywood is just waking up to, is that it lets its characters talk. Like, you know, real conversations, where faces are turned to each other, where the baat-cheet between a girl and guy moves from

  •  Yahoo Movies -Rummana Ahmed Rating-6
Modern relationships are caught in transition - some are being redefined, traditional mindsets are being challenged, the man-woman equation has many new aspects to it. Societal pressure sometimes try to thwart this change, the expectation that everyone has to be happily married by

  •  Bollywood Life -Prathamesh Jadhav Rating-7
First things first – director Maneesh Sharma’s Shuddh Desi Romance (SDR) might be branded as a film revolving majorly around live-in relationships, but the fact remains that it is not just about that. The romantic drama is beautifully layered with various confusions and conflicts the young

  •  DNA -Tushar Joshi Rating-6
Set in Jaipur, we often relate to the situations and emotions the characters go through. Be it the first pangs of love, the cold sweat before walking up to the mandap, or that strange feeling of being desired by your ex even after a break up, most of the scenes seem real. SDR is extremely mushy

  •  One India -Nabanita Rating-4
Today's Indian youth couples have no qualms in pursuing the forbidden live-in relationships in the society that portrays the advanced and modern thought procedures of the new generation. Over the years, we have witnessed Bollywood in the controversial theme of live-ins in India.

  •  IBN Live -Rajeev Masand Rating-7
For years, Hindi movies have drilled the same conservative, and often regressive notions of love and marriage into our heads. 'Shuddh Desi Romance' takes that conventional wisdom propagated to us in the movies and turns it on its head. What's worth noting is that this movie

  •  Hindustan Times -Anupama Chopra Rating-8
I don’t know about you but for me a good film is like a tequila shot – I get giddy on it. And when a Bollywood film gives me a high, I feel like screaming from the rooftops. I loved Shuddh Desi Romance and I think you will too.

There are stories galore of runaway brides. Every nook and cranny of the country has a tale to tell about last moment deserters of such kind who leave their grooms waiting in themandap. But have you ever heard of runaway grooms? Probably not. No, he is not being forced into the

  •  Now Running -Mansha Rastogi Rating-4
Yes, that's the new age romance projected in the film Shuddh Desi Romance coming from the stable that believed in all the romantic cliches possible for the longest time. Times are changing, the youth today considers marriage just a societal norm confounding the idea of love and confining two people

  •  The W14 -Mayank Shekar Rating-6
The tail of this romance is much longer than its main body. As it had to be, because you’re being spared the extensive, tiring courtship, confusion and chase that usually becomes the basis of most romantic flicks. This is post-romantic in that sense.

  •  Indiaglitz -Vishal Verma Rating-6
YRF new age bride runs away from its usual Band Baaja Baarat but celebrates the 'suhaag raat' of affairs in its live -in relationships with some 'real' exuberance and pride of its own grace and warmth, without resorting to the usual romantic comedy cliche's scoring rightly in those flirts

  •  Mid-Day -Shubha Shetty Saha Rating-7
This is one of those rare, precious Bollywood films when the writer shines through. With this film, the much dependable Jaideep Sahni asks an immensely relevant question – is marriage an outdated institution? …and Maneesh Sharma gives it his characteristic earthy

Chalo Jaipur! The wedding season is on full blast, with paid baaraatis – English-speaking participants paid extra – complete with super-blingy outfits and ravenous appetites for the buffet paneer shorbas, and unrefrigerated bottles of cold drinks.

  •  Cinema Confessions -Gautam Anand Rating-8
This is what Bollywood was always known for. This is what Bollywood is exceedingly good at. This is what Bollywood is uniquely defined by; so much so that by now it should have been its copyright product. An official selection to Toronto International Film Festival was an early
