Yash Raj banner need to be complemented about the fact that they have tackled an integral aspect of Indian social milieu as it happens in the small cities through SHUDDH DESI ROMANCE. SDR is revisiting SALAAM NAMASTE through small cities. Indeed, it is a saga of live-in relationships as it happens in small towns in India and through the eyes of Jaideep Sahni who returns to writing a film after a long time, SDR indeed does have the potential to hold mirror to paradigms of society as they exist in small cities.
SDR indeed is a stark portrayal about the existentialist dilemmas that the couples of the present generation face, when they fall in love, as within the defined officially approved relationships norms, no name has been given to the relationship between a boy and a girl. So it happens in quite a large number of cases that a boy when he starts liking a girl couches that relationship as a bhai-behan type which later graduates to romance, and therefore the title has also been christened aptly SHUDDH DESI ROMANCE. SDR apart from probing into live-in relationship also is an attempt to question the fixation of the issue of virginity associated with a girl at the time of marriage, and it is a bold attempt to question the paradigm. The seriousness about questioning the issue of virginity associated with a girl and the mindset of the boys of the country to grow out of it is also manifest from the tagline of SDR as well.
What Jaideep Sahni, as he has been doing since the time he has made his debut, is looking through SDR is love and live in relationship and the associated paradigms that crop up with it and the issues of morality that come into play. For the present generation of youth vexing with problems of all kinds, SDR could provide some solutions.
