15: Parineeti Chopra’s Wedding – Shuddh Desi Romance
It couldn’t get more complicated than this.Shuddh Desi Romance is basically the Indian interpretation of Julia Roberts’s Runaway Bride. The stories are different but the central idea is the same: what happens when someone loves falling in love but panics at the idea of getting married? Filled with an endless loop of groom abandoning the bride and bride abandoning the groom incidents, this movie starred Parineeti Chopra and Sushant Singh Rajput and is a modern take on the live-in relationship.
The story, set in Jaipur, Rajasthan, explores the views of the younger generation of commitment, live-in relationships, and arranged marriages. There’s a lot of running away in this film. It’s Parineeti who starts the running away from wedding business and Sushant follows next. The third time, they both do it together.
