Rohit Dhawan son of famous director David Dhawan has done his directorial debut with Desi Boyz. The film has been well shot with the help of decent screen play. Rohit has his own style of directing which is totally differnt from his father. The story is interesting and stays in the safe zone keeping audience sesivities in mind.
Desi Boyz is a story of 2 best buddies Akshay Kumar (Jerry) & John Abraham (Nick) who lives together in an appartment. Nick is an investment banker and Jerry does small jobs to earn his living and mostly depands on Nick. Jerry has a responsibily of upbringing his nephew, his sisters son, who has lost his parents , on other hand Nick and his girlfriend Radhika (Deepika Padukone) are planning to get married and have beautiful future. Due to recession both of them lost their jobs and live on savings for few months and then it becomes very difficult for them to carry on. So they become male escorts, getting well paid and hiding it from everyone but eventually they got caught up by Radhika and she walks out of Nick’s life and Jerry loses his nephew’s custody and the movie continues about how they fix their mistake.
Akshay & John have come together after 6 years with the same chemistry and powerful performance that keeps the audience entertained. Deepika is looking glamorous as she always does. Chitrangda Singh as Tanya Sharma is playing a role of Economics teacher and she is looking stunning in the film. She comes after the interval and her performance is effortless. As it is a male dominated film role of Deepika & Chitrangda is relatively small.
Sunjay Dutt, Anupam Kher & Omi Vaidya have special appearnces which makes the even movie more entertaining.
The music is done by Pritam and he has a done great job with the songs, the title track is energetic and an interesting blend of Punjabi, Hindi & English, this song is good for clubs. Subha Hone Na De is another naught song by Mika with cute voice of Shefali Alvares, this song is already a chart buster. Jhak Maar Ke is a fun song. Allah Maaf Kare has good beats. Over all the music is impressive.
The first half of the movie created good expectations about the second half but it was below the expectation. The climax is inspired by Adam Sandler’s movie Big Daddy. Over all the movie is entertaining with the balance of Comedy, Emotions and good music.
