Earlier in 2005 Akshay Kumar and John Abraham shared the screen space together in the comic caper of Priyadarshan Garam Masala. It is now Rohit Dhawan’s Desi Boyz where the two would be acting together with two beautiful female leads – Deepika Padukone and Chitrangda Singh.
Produced by Krishika Lulla this film has been made more entertaining by the music compositions of Pritam. Slated for 25th November release, this film appears to be a complete entertainer.
Akshay is playing Jerry Patel and John Nick Mathur in the film whereas Deepika is essaying Radhika and Chitrangda is Tanya. The other characters of the film include Omi Vaidya in the role of Veer and Rajat Barmecha as Sameer Seth.
The story of Desi Boyz is about Jerry and Nick who feel that they are happy in their cozy worlds. Nick is engaged to Radhika and is extremely happy to have her in his life. He is successful in his investment banking career and is elated to see the new bonuses coming in his pocket.
All was well unless one day recession dawns in. Jerry on the other hand is habitual of scraping it from the bottom and living on the edge. He is not that disturbed to hear the news of recession but Nick is. The day Nick’s company fires him a hell breaks loose on him. While Jerry is reported by the Social Services that his nephew Veer would be placed in a foster home unless he gets a stable job. Jeery who is the local guardian of Veer is troubled to learn all this.
The theme and plot of Desi Boyz revolves round the problems raised due to recession. How do these ‘Desi Boyz’ get out of it is interesting to see.
