back

A mild comedy entertainer that won't bore you. 

After the 'Yamla Pagla Deewana' venture, the Deol brothers are back with a bang with Shreyas Talpade's acted and directed 'Poster Boys' which is a remake of a superhit Marathi film of the same title. This family entertainer drives you in a laughter ride taking the serious topic of birth prevention via Vasectomy in a bizarre unserious manner. The film starts with the press reporter covering the court jurisdiction verdict introducing the three lead characters i.e. Jagaavar Chaudhry (Sunny Deol), Vinay Sharma (Bobby Deol) and Arjun Singh (Shreyas Talpade) waiting for the judgement and then the flashback takes you to the beginning of how the whole chaos started. 

Jagaavar Chaudhry is a retired ex-Army man who is now selfie obsessed trendy social guy who loves clicking pouts and is totally ambitious for her sister's wedding. Jagaavar's character is a calm and polite retired officer who goes out of control when in anger. While Arjun Singh is a recovery agent with Haryanavi accent of a leading bank and does vasooli himself taking his two bearded friends along with him. And lastly Vinay Sharma who is a nerd geeky school teacher who often forgets what he is teaching surely deserves applauds for such a different role performed flawlessly.

They don't know what's happening around with them as their world suddenly fall apart with Jagaavar's sister wedding being cancelled, Vinay's wife calling off for a divorce and Arjun's girlfriend breaking up with him. All of the three get mad when they come to know the reason behind this chaos is a government poster everywhere in the city that has the three of them as the endorsers of the vasectomy operation campaign. The poster says that they have opted with the operation in order to support the awareness. However, the whole world finds them as a bunch of liars who are covering up for their fake masculinity.

From interrogating and finding who is the actual culprit of the problem to taking the legal actions against the health ministry and starting the Nanga Andolan in the end.

Talking about the individual performances, none of the three actors lacked in entertaining us with their comic timing. The past references of Sunny Deol's dialogues were a joy to watch. While Bobby performed the best out of the three as it was a difficult character overall in terms of what Bobby has been doing in the past. Continuous pure Hindi monologues and Bobby's nerdy school teacher performance gets him some serious applauds in terms of acting. Shreyas Talpade has already worked in Marathi version too gave his best in Hindi remake. Marking his directorial debut with it he gave a splendid performance even as an actor.

Elli Avram's sizzling hot item song 'Kudiyan Shehar Id' performed by Daler Mehndi and Neha Kakkar with the three actors adds the glam factor to the movie. Another song that is quite emotional and feeling full illustrating the struggle of three of them is 'Noor E Khuda' sung by Kailash Kher. This 3-minute song is the only serious moment in the entire film. 

Even though after a mediocre art direction effort put forward, the film did not compromise at all in entertaining the audience.

'Poster Boys' is a mild comedy entertainer that won't bore you at any moment. The ending goes winding up super fast as the whole 'Golmaal' cast right from Rohit Shetty, Ajay Devgan, Parineeti Chopra, Arshad Warsi, Tusshar Kapoor and Kunal Khemu send their individual support to the Nanga Andolan against the government.

Overall a good above family entertainer that makes you laugh for sure.
