WBRi Movie Review: DESI BOYZ (2011) – A "Mindless Entertainer" Taking Itself Too Seriously

Subah Hone Na De - A Hindi Film Song from Desi Boyz (2011)

[Desi Boyz Film Poster]Calcutta, Nov 28, 2011 (Washington Bangla Radio / Penning Creations) In the mid-90s, director David Dhawan teamed up with Govinda to make a slew of funny and immensely successful films. While the critics kept on cribbing about the general low-brow nature of the humor in these movies, the general audience seemed to lap them up with glee. Indeed, Dhawan was hailed as the pioneer of the genre of ‘mindless entertainers.’ With ‘Desi Boyz’, the son of David, Rohit Dhawan marks his first foray into film direction. The results, however, are mixed, to put it politely.

‘Desi Boyz’ brings back the hit ‘Garam Masala’ jodi of Akshay Kumar and John Abraham. The success of the movie is crucial for them and particularly for Kumar, who has had a prolonged lean patch at the box-office. Chitrangada Singh, whom we so admired in the brilliant ‘Hazaron Khwaishen Aisi’, makes her full-scale mainstream debut with ‘Desi Boyz’, adding to the expectations and hype surrounding the movie.

The movie tells the story of ‘Nick’ (John Abraham), a successful MBA with a plush job and a gorgeous girlfriend ‘Radhika’ (Deepika Padukone) and ‘Jerry’ (Akshay Kumar), a man with little academic qualifications, but, as is the case with most leading men in Hindi movies, with a heart of gold. The two are best buddies, share a common apartment and John’s marriage with Deepika is on the horizon. What could possibly go wrong with this apparently rosy scenario? Well, almost everything can, for the year is 2009, the year of the global meltdown.
