Shuddh Desi Romance

Synopsis: Shuddh Desi Romance is the journey of three restless young people who junk the society's syllabus for finding love and decide to follow their heart. Raghu (Sushant Singh Rajput), a tourist guide in Jaipur, wants a love in his life, and that's it. The rest he's going to figure out along the way. Gayatri (Parineeti Chopra), a part-time instructor in an English speaking institute, has been around the block a few times and knows the scene, warts and all. Tara (Vaani Kapoor), who's dying to get out there and fly, knows what's right for her, but a little experimenting never hurt anybody, did it? When their lives crisscross, their beliefs get challenged, and their loves, tested. We all want it all...the love, the attraction, the relationship, the commitment. But when we get it, it may not be in the way we recognise.

Love? It comes in handy.

Who's denying it?

But it's something that's between

two people

So why does it concern the others?

Look at him ogling at her

He has one purpose after all.


So he has to stare

Girls give boys the once-over

in their own way, too

They have desires, too. All kinds

But here,

if a couple even talk to each other...

...the living and the dead make it

their business and pounce

And what's the bottom line?


You'll commit, right?

Marriage is the glucose drip,

a cure-all

Don't think too much. Settle down

All of India wants everyone settled

Yet in 60 years, we haven't managed

a settlement with our neighbour

I'm in a new relationship.

It suits me

But marriage and commitment?

Another ballgame

I mean...

Another ballgame altogether

Free as a bird

Free as a spirit

At times serene, at times searching

Love her today

Love another tomorrow

This shameless heart of mine

will give me a bad name

O playful heart

So random

Fooled me, stirred me

Fooled me

Swept me off my feet

My playful heart flies to you

Clasp this sinner's

heartstrings gently

Tangled are the ways of the heart

Untangling them is sheer worry

Many are tired from trying

The heart's mysteries elude all

They try to unpick its mysteries

But hide what they discover

Goyal Caterers & Decoraters

We plan weddings.

Prepare the best catering

Not The country of the brave!

Play My mate's wedding

Or I'll whack you between the ears

You play! But you can't?

Smoking all day

When others play,

you bring their morale down

Shut up! You low life

Mr Know-All!

My music is ear-ache.

Your farting is sweet music

All the wedding guests are fake

But still they want a real band

- An arranged marriage?

- I thought he'd go for love

Wonder what changed his mind

To each his own, brother

A man may look modern but

when the call of tradition beckons...

Put it inside. Hurry!

He looks uneasy. What's up?

Who knows? The fool

At least try to look real

even if you are fake wedding guests

Come on, wear your jacket

See, Rag h u ram?

I've hired four wedding guests,


Your magnificent groom's party,


Don't call me Raghuram

Just Raghu. That's all

Give me a break.

Just for today, please

- You promised a deluxe package

- So?

You should've hired

8 English-speaking guys

But you got two. Not even one girl

What will my in-laws think?

For 4 years I've worn my best suits,

playing your wedding extra

Anyone complained?

Why no English-speaking girl

to boost my image?

I'd pass her off as an ex

What's that?

Miss Gayatri!

You may attend A-grade weddings...

...but she goes to super-grade ones

in her flowing skirts

When they hear her speak English...

...they'll be stunned, Raghuram

- No Raghuram in front of her

- Look at her!

The atmosphere will turn English soon

Nothing confirmed

Goel Saab, no discount

He's family. My boy

Give him a discount

He'll do the same for you,

and bring his Mrs...

...for free

A small favour for your brother?

What brother? Don't know him

You pay her. A sister's rate

Only 4000. 2 days, one full night

A sister's rate? 4000?

2 days, one full night

Oh! What did you...

I didn't mean...

Wasting my time. Nothing is fixed

So why call me?

Embarrassing for him and for me

No discount

Pay her a thousand.

I'll deduct a thousand

Load up the groom's party. Go!

It's settled? A thousand for her

You must've fobbed me off

with an old mare as well

Go, see!

The mare is right outside

Dolled up like seven Katrina Kaifs

I know all about your Katrina Kaifs

Explained them the routine?
