Akshay Kumar, John Abraham, Deepika Padukone and Chitrangada Singh come together for ‘Desi Boyz’, a movie which has been directed by Rohith Dhawan. The movie has released all over the world on the 25th. Let us see how it fares.
Story: Desi Boyz is about the lives of two desi boys living in the UK. Nick Mathur (John Abraham) and Jignesh Patel ( Akshay Kumar ) are faced with a host of economic and personal problems when they lose their jobs in the recession. Nick is engaged to Radhika (Deepika Padukone) while Jignesh Patel needs to take care of his orphaned nephew. Out of desperation, they start working as something that is a cross between a stripper and a male escort.
All hell breaks loose when their loved ones discover this act. What follows next is a story filled with desperate attempts by Nick and Jignesh Patel to win back their loved ones. Along the way, Jignesh also falls in love with his ex classmate Tanya (Chitrangada Singh)
Plus Points : The lead stars look good on screen. Deepika Padukone is especially hot. Dialogues are a major asset. The movie proceeds along at a fair pace in the first half. and is entertaining in parts. Cinematography is good. Music and background score provided by Preetam is an asset. Songs have been shot well.
Sanjay Dutt’s cameo is good.
Minus Points: The movie has some mindless, outdated and cliched comedy. Many scenes in the movie will remind you of the movie ‘Hey Baby’. There is zero logic in many of the sequences that unfold in the movie. The characterization of the heroes is highly hypocritical in nature and is not believable. The concept of the actors turning into male escorts but refusing to sleep with their clients(because of values!!) is idiotic.
Rohit Dhawan’s direction leaves a lot to be desired.
There is also a lot of idealistic preaching in the movie, things which have been said over and over for a zillion times in Bollywood movies.
Verdict : This is a movie that can only be watched if you leave your brain back home. The first half has some mildly enjoyable scenes. The second half is where everything goes for a toss. If you are a Deepika Padukone fan though, there are some ‘colourful moments’ in the film for you. Otherwise, Desi Boyz is best avoided
