Surprisingly, the film isn't as bad as the reviews I came across. A popcorn-munching entertainer, Desi Boyz makes for an enjoyable, paisa-vasool film.
What's good -
** Akshay and John as best buddies are as entertaining as Jerry and Nick as Rocco and Hunter, with great comic timings. Deepika, for a change, is tolerable and even looks good. Omi Vaidya of 3 idiots fame is hilarious as Ajay. John ups the hotness quotient. Check him out in the title track (girls, I bet you won't blink ;)
** It keeps you hooked through to its two hours of fun (save the courtroom scene which could have been done away with) and some amazing foot-thumping soundtracks which keep the film alive and kicking.
** After a long long time, Bollywood made me laugh. 2011 has been a letdown in terms of the kind of films it has produced despite all the brouhaha. But I can count DB among the best films of this year. I just wish they'd come up with a less frumpish title.
Girls, it's going to be a treat for you. Don't miss it ;)
