Desi Boyz Movie Review


Ratings:2/5 Reviewer:Rajeev Masand Site:IBNLive
Debut director Rohit Dhawan picks an unconventional premise, but doesn’t have the courage to run with it. Desi Boyz coasts along harmlessly through its first half, with a few clever dialogues thrown in, and some pleasant chemistry between its male leads. Also abandoned at the halfway mark, is any pretense that this was trying to be a different film. Post intermission Desi Boyz becomes yet another regular ‘family entertainer’.I’m going with two out of five for Desi Boyz. Go in with modest expectations and perhaps you won’t come out dissatisfied.

Ratings:2/5 Reviewer:Taran Adarsh Site:BollywoodHungama
DESI BOYZ is a lot of fun as the male protagonists take to pleasing their female clientele. The first hour, frankly, is akin to a roller coaster ride with lots of fascinating developments unfolding at a feverish pace. Watching the second hour of DESI BOYZ is akin to watching an entirely different film. The problem clearly lies in the fact that the screenplay doesn't hold and it tries to balance drama and fun, but with not much success.On the whole, DESI BOYZ has an entertaining first half and decent performances as its plusses, but a tedious and least compelling second hour stands out like a sore thumb. Leaves a lot to be desired!

Ratings:3.5/5 Reviewer:Nikhat Kazmi Site:TimesofIndia
It's the crackling chemistry between John Abraham and Akshay Kumar which makes Desi Boyz such a fun film. True, the film doesn't boast of anything that even comes close to an intelligent quotient, but the perfectly tuned tango, salsa, hip hop between the boyz gives it a spicy edge and keeps you in your seats, goofily munching your popcorns. eventually, ladies, this one is for you. Too much sizzle on screen. End result: Can't take your eyes off. Entertain yourself. Watch Desi Boyz. Tip Off: A story to accompany the zany stuff saves it from being a mindless comedy.

What’s Good: Performances; several comic punches; the music. What’s Bad: Emotional scenes are a bit hurried; some scenes are repetitive in the second half; climax looks a bit incomplete. However, in spite of these shortcomings, the fact remains that the drama is engaging and entertaining. Comedy evokes laughter at many places. Verdict:Desi Boyz is a feel good entertainer. Watch or Not?: Watch Desi Boyz for the music, comedy and performances.

Ratings:1.5/5 Reviewer:Raja Sen Site:Rediff
Before the second half enter,Desi Boyz motors along almost tolerably. There are sloppy musical cues and an inconsistent use of narrative gimmicks and even some standard poverty=school-fees melodrama, but compared to what Kumar's been putting us through in recent months, it's almost okay, and the two boys have a fine energy in their scenes together.The sheer horror of what lies in store for us is only apparent when the Intermission word appears. "Uh-oh. We're only halfway through?" Gulp.Or from you, young Mr Dhawan. Walk away from this disaster and try harder next time. (Is it okay if we don't hold our breath just yet?)

The John, Akshay starrer is not a paisa vasool film, and the leading laides have been wasted, says NDTV's critic Vijay Vashishta.

Ratings:2/5 Reviewer:Aniruddha Guha Site:DNA
The one thing I can say about Desi Boyz is that it's tolerable. The Dhawan boy impresses with his hold over the craft, slickness and style, and Kumar and Abraham play off each other’s personalities to make a lovable jodiAll that slick technique comes to zilch when at the end of the day, a filmmaker does little than shove the same old cliched melodrama which went out of fashion in the ‘90s down your throats.Ah well, may be I’m giving it more thought than it deserves, because frankly the film did make me laugh out loud about twice. If your expectations are that low, you may not be entirely disappointed with Desi Boyz.

Ratings:3/5 Reviewer:Daily Bhaskar Site:Dainik Bhaskar
A shaky first half with plot losing threads at most of times, Desi Boyz picks up post interval with much needed pace. the perfect comic-timing between with Akshay-John followed by s**iest ever chemistry between Akshay-Chitrangada makes Desi Boyz a spicy watch. Honest performances, music, fast-paced screenplay and cinematography get a thumps up. Weak storyline, poor characterization and clumsy first half are the weak points.On the whole, Desi Boyz is surely a one-time watch with Sanjay Dutt’s presence a USP of the film.

Ratings:3/5 Reviewer:SuperGoodMovies Site:SuperGoodMovies
Desi Boyz starts on the very promising note with Dhawan taking care of all the relevant details. It progresses in an even better manner leaving a lot of smiles on your face. The second half does get dragged when Jerry joins college, there could have been a better way to take it forward. The climax again paces up giving it momentum and a good end. Approximately two hour long, Rohit Dhawan’s ‘Desi Boyz’ is not a bad bet this weekend as its fun, pacey and entertaining.Final Word: An entertaining watch.

  4. It should not have been rate Adults, as it is a complete family entertainer and i think opening may be low but it will surely sustain and become a superhit as it is a complete entertainer.

  9. “Just back from the theatre watching desi boyz. Will give u my short details about the movie


    Story: as everybody know due to recession Akki and John loose their jobs.so they turned male escorts to earn some money . Beside that Akki has emotional relationship with a little boy( good one).
    Overall first half is damn good but I think second half is little drag compare to superb first half..

    Watch it for Akshay,John,Sanjay Dutt,Chitrangadha,Deepika,Chatur and the little boy

    A MUST WATCH

    ReplyDelete
  38. The film is below average. They could have done a lot better with the story, but they failed. The last 10 min were absolutely intolerable and didn't make any sense whatsoever. The comedy at some moments was good. Well you could go this one as there are no other movies to watch out for this weekend.

    ReplyDelete
  39. taran adarsh is simply a ghuskhor.he has given 4 star to stupid, senseless movies like bodyguard, ra-one and here he is giving desi boyz just 2 star. this movie is far better than bodyguard or dabangg. 3.5/5

    ReplyDelete
  40. I have nothing to do weather its hit or flop i want my money back , that's all .Its very bad, stupid movie. Can i get my money back its comedy is so childish , unfunny , loud , Taarak mehta ka oolta chasma is much beter to watch then spending so much money , or if u want to laugh tell someone to tickle you , better option , wish i had viewed below reviews before going to watch it i now regret

  47. ye taran adarsh ek number ka chor hai..................chapal se marnaa chahiye

    ReplyDelete
  48. Taran adarsh bikaau hai. Uska rate hai:

    4 star chahiye: producer se 1 crore lega
    3.5 star chahiye: 75 lakh lega
    3 star chahiye: 50 lakh leta hai.

    Agar producer ne kameene ko paise nahi khilaye to 2-star deta hai gadha.

    Guyz..I watched desi boyz 3 times...its just awesome... Akki is back!!!!

  49. Akshay kumar and John Abraham is the perfect jodi....

  50. why the hell all want to watch movies in theatre and waste their money.
    If one is having a lot of money than can waste otherwise please stop watching all these sucking movies where only skin is shown. All these movies does not have anything only skin show.
    They are filling pockets of the porn stars who show their body and can do anything for money.
