  • some good DESI Entertainment of BOYZ...

    Desi Boyz rating: 6 out of 10(Akhtar Ali Sayyed wrote on 26 Nov 2011)

    David Dhawan…. Whenever this name comes to our mind we start laughing uncontrollably… He is a man who is famous for directing full of fun movies…
    He is the one who supported a trend of two-heroes starrer movie very well and gave several good movies. Few of his two-heroes starrer movies are Thanedar, Haseena Maan Jayegi, Deewana Mastana, Jodi no.1, Mujse Shaadi Karogi and a recent flick RASCALS… all the movies have some good comedy, which goes with his name…

    When I heard that Rohit Dhawan is following his father’s footsteps means starting his career in the field of direction and coming with a Two-heroes flick…. But will he be same successful as his father is?????

    Let’s see what Desi Boyz offer us????

    Desi Boyz is a story of Two Best Friends JIGNESH/ JERRY, played by Akshay Kumar and NICK, played by John Abraham. Both stay together in a rented Apartment… John is an MBA and has a good job and takes care of himself and part time jobber, shortcut expert Jerry who is also a college dropout… Nick has a girl friend named RADHIKA played by Deepika Padukone. They both always have a dream of happy married life….
    But everything changed after the Recession crises… NICK loses his job, they have lost everything, tension of EMIs, loans etc… NICK has to take care of life style of RADHIKA and JERRY has to bare the fees of his orphan nephew VEER… these Scenario leads them to join Sanjay Dutt’s Escort agency DESI BOYZ… Akshay as ROCCO and John as HUNTER become the hottest property in that industry in a shorter span of time… but all this gets over when this was disclosed to RADHIKA and a Social care unit…
    Now second half begins with Nick’s try to convince Radhika to forgive him and Jignesh’s try to overcome of all and become a good guardian to veer…

    The story seems to be different and the treatment to the story also seems to be good in the first half, which is actually a powerful part of the movie… There are many good scenes like…

    - John trying to flirt (/impress) with Deepika at pub
    - John’s birthday where he proposes Deepika and Akshay seems to be unhappy…
    - Akshay’s tele-conversation in gujrati with his mother
    - John’s Job Loss
    - Akshay’s meet with Veer’s Principal
    - Akshay and John go to DESI BOYZ’s Office... Sanjay dutt’s entry and Their converstaion
    - Akshay Kumar’s form filling
    - Akshay visits as an escort to a bachelors’ party and john joins him…
    - Success party of HUNTER & ROCCO, where deepika reaches with her father… the entire party scene between John, Akshay, Deepika, Anupam Kher, Sanjay dutt and others… after a long time a have observed such a long and good situational scene…
    - Akshay at the house of lady where she, maid and a security guard back to back thanking him for the last night etc…


    In the second half…

    - When john apologies to deepika
    - Akshay’s first time to the hostel room
    - Akshay’s conversation with his professor about illiterate India
    - Scenes between John and Omi Vaidya…
    - Akshay’s convocation ceremony… and his mother
    - The job interview with Satish Kaushik….
    - The court sccene… especially Sanjay dutt in court…

    Rohit Dhawan did the decent job with the pen… first half runs really smoothly… but second half has many ups and downs with some indigestible and silly moments… but even those go fine and keep the pace required of the movie… but it wasn’t suiting to the title… and hence it becomes weak…

    as a debutant director, Rohit Dhawan did a decent job; the only problem was the weak second half …

    But even that was covered by some really good One-liners finely written by Renuka Kunzru…

    Performance wise everyone did a good job…

    The role Akshay kumar is playing, really suited to his personality…. And may be, DESI BOYZ will be the movie he is waiting for since long…

    John, Deepika, Chitranjana, anupam kher were good…

    Omi vaidya was fabulous in his small role…. He really rolled the movie…

    But the real show stealer was Sanju baba… though he hardly has three scenes, but his every scene and his dialogues were fabulous…


    Music and background score is very good…. And it doesn’t give a chance to boredom during the film…
    songs are chartbusters and feet tapping…


    So…
    Can we make some noise for the DESI BOYZ….

    YES… we can MAKE SOME NOISE… of course for the first half… a lot…. And somehow for the second half… though it is weaker one…


    In brief….

    DESI BOYZ is a good entertainer with some better music and some solid one-liners and performances by the GANG of BOYZ…


    My ratings….

    For movie *** (3 / 5)
    For Music ***1/2 (3.5/5)
