I Love Desi: Film Review – An over the top love story

Directed by Pankaj Batra, I Love Desi features newcomers, Vedant Bali, Priyanka Shah and veteran actor, Gulshan Grover in this charming love story. Vedant Bali plays Punjab Singh, a simpleton who hasn’t studied beyond fourth grade and follows his family tradition of farming. Shakti Anand, of Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi fame plays the loving elder brother, who is a professor in a college.

The drama ensues when Punjab gets rejected for a marriage proposal, because of his educational qualifications. Furious, he relocates to Canada, where he ends up being framed for a murder. The film then shifts to illegal immigration problem, which we recently saw in the cross-over film, Surkhaab. The film hardly touches the main topic, but represents an important aspect of the Indian community in Canada. Priyanka Shah plays a rich NRI Simran, who hates her name and has recently inherited her father’s riches. His will states that she should marry an Indian boy, only after which she will receive his property entirely. Simran then decides to use Punjab, helping him get out of jail.

The film has many Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge references, notably with ‘Simran’ and Punjab’s obsession with it. The cinematography is stunning. The screenplay is weak, with the dialogues looking forced. The only one who seems comfortable in front of the camera is Gulshan Grover, who carries out the role of a loving father convincingly. The songs are peppy and utilizes the locations efficiently. While the first half is a drag, the second half is quick and emotional, encapsulating a family drama in a poignant manner.

Why you should watch this film?

I Love Desi is a delightful love story that has it’s own share of funny moments. Though the story is predictable, it’s definitely worth a watch this weekend.
