Product Description

Two pals from London face an unusual challenge during an economic downturn in this action comedy from director Rohit Dhawan. As the global economy hits some heavy turbulence, London investment banker Nick feels downright invincible. He's got a good job, a gorgeous fiancée, and a flat that's to die for. Nick's best friend Jerry may be unemployed, but with Nick's income they can both live comfortably. Until Nick gets downsized, and Social Services inform Jerry that he'll need to get a job lest he risk losing custody of his nephew Veer. And though Nick and Jerry quickly come up with a solution to their urgent dilemma, the dire repercussions of their rash actions may be enough to break up a friendship that's been decades in the making. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Review

After regaling and entertaining moviegoers with GARAM MASALA six years ago, Akshay Kumar and John Abraham reunite in DESI BOYZ. Helmed by first-timer Rohit Dhawan, son of the badshaah of entertainers David Dhawan, this one goes a step further DESI BOYZ has a bit of THE FULL MONTY and a bit of DEUCE BIGALOW: MALE GIGOLO. Akshay Kumar, known for his fantastic sense of comic timing, does remarkably well in the comic role. He is also suitably restrained in the emotional scenes. His dances are delightful. John Abraham spring a pleasant surprise with a free-spirited performance. He has improved tremendously in comedy. He is also quite free in dances. Deepika Padukone looks glamorous, exudes sex appeal and acts with effortless ease. Chitrangada Singh is another surprise, having made a confident and smooth transition from art to commercial cinema. She looks sexy and acts well. Sanjay Dutt is a highlight and leaves a mark whenever he comes. The background music which accompanies his arrival is a masterstroke. Omi Vaidya is just too cute and delivers a wonderful performance. Master Virej Desai is lovable. Anupam Kher entertains with a natural performance. His dialogue about getting ambitious is interesting and enjoyable. Mohnish Bahl leaves a mark for his dignified acting. Bharti Achrekar is extraordinary and makes her presence wonderfully felt. Satish Kaushik is very good. Suparna Marwah is nice as the judge.. Rohit Dhawan makes a confident debut as director. He knows the art and craft of filmmaking and credit to him for extracting good performances from his cast and also not letting the drama dip in entertainment value. Pritams music is a major plus point. All the songs are delightful.... Song picturisations are very eye-filling, thanks to Bosco-Caesars choreography. Nataraja Subramanians camerawork is splendid. The foreign locations and the actors have all looked beautiful. Sets, erected by Sukant Panigrahi and Helen Jones, are lovely. Production values are rich. Technical aspects are of a high standard. On the whole, Desi Boyz is an enjoyable entertainer !!!!!!!!!!!!!! --http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2109200/

5.0 out of 5 stars DESI BOYZ review 3/9/2012 March 9, 2012
By vent
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I usually don't go for the show me the beef cake movies but this one not only goes for the beef cake it goes for the laughs and the heart. This movie is a lot of fun period . Similar to the HEART of, but none of the content of the Full Monty. No nudity or embarrassing practice sessions. The dance scenes are energetic, fun and tastefully done. none of that pulling off the garter crap or cheap dollar bill in the thank God non-existent gstring. None of that . This movie is done with a light touch so you don't feel embarrassed for them doing a job they wouldn't normally choose for themselves. This is very tongue in cheek style. They just come across as making sure everyone is having a good time in playfully designed sets and costume fantasy , fireman, motorcycles etc., and you're invited for the fun and the very spectacular dancing. The writer/director makes sure we as the audience are included.

The story grows forward with the characters as they aren't as desperate anymore and the bills are being paid up to date , John Abrahams character Hunter decides to stop doing this , and tells Akshay( Rocco)But right before he can retire his fiance catches a Youtube video her friends are looking at and it's her fiance in living color (actually fun one on youtube for real). Big fight and it spills onto Jerry who is told to get out and grow up. When she walks away from him he is forced into conferring with her father on how to get her back. Very funny times ahead on that plot line.

Next up the maturation of Jerry(rocco) . When he is thrown out and his nephew taken from his custody he launches a desperate plan to go back to college and finish his last semester and get his "son" out of foster care.

1.0 out of 5 stars Desi Boyz April 15, 2013
By TLW
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I thought this movie was going to be good because it has Akshay Kumar and John Abraham. No! I did not see the wow! factor in this at all. Two sexy men in a dull film. I ended up giving this movie to my mom because she is a huge Akshay and John fan. I was too until I watched this film. Hopefully when these two act together in a film in the future it won't suck like this film did. What a waste of my money and two hours of my like I will never get back.

4.0 out of 5 stars Desi Boyz May 25, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a Fun movie for people who like a lot of music, sexy dancing, sexy bodies, and a little cheezy wheeling and dealing. However, there's a bit of drama in the midst of it because a fun-loving irresponsible sexy guy neglects to take a romantic relationship serious.Life goes sort of topsy-turvy on him, as well as on others involved. At that point the story leaves you unsure of what to expect, but you'll want to see it through to the end.

4.0 out of 5 stars Every bit as good as I thought November 1, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Ahhh bollywood. A very entertaining movie with some very catchy songs. Not exactly the bollywood version of Magic Mike that I was expecting, but great none-the-less. It had English subtitles as promised, which was a huge relief. The only thing is I seemed to have trouble with the audio when I tried to play it in my Blueray player, but it worked fine on my laptop. Not sure what happened there.

3.0 out of 5 stars Akshay good John so and so January 31, 2012
Format:DVD
Desi Boyz is well and cohesively directed by debutante director Rohit Dhawan.It has cool cinematography,fine script and some good acting as its positives.Akshaya Kumar surprises here with a heart-felt performance as the single father of a kid and a devoted simple minded friend.Film in its subject matter resembles "Oops" 2003 by Deepak Tijori.Anupam Kher is funny and good support here and so is Sanjay Dutt.Deepika and John are just OK so and so.You can watch it once or just to kill time.

Akshaya's part has some similarities with Cary Grant in Penny Serenade.

3.0 out of 5 stars Bollywood comedy set in London January 12, 2012
Format:DVD
A fun Bollywood movie with some Romantic Comedy and some Family Drama and quite a bit of dancing. None of the dance numbers are spectacular, but are often creatively staged and costumed and (appropriately as the movie is set in London) include quite a diversity of looks among the dancers. The singing, however, is so heavily auto-tuned that the vocals might as well have been created with a synthesizer. The movie builds momentum slowly and certainly isn't one I would highly recommend, but it is a reasonable diversion and isn't one to avoid, either.

4.0 out of 5 stars If you like JA's body, definitely watch this March 28, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I love John Abraham so was very keen to watch yet another of his movies.

Desi Boyz is not your typical Hindi movie, there is a lot more risky subject matter than most.

Both the main actors were great, not amazing but they definitely loved showing off their bodies!

Some catchy songs and dances but very good overall.
