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.

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.
