Poster Boys


After a long hiatus, the Deol brothers, Sunny Deol and Bobby Deol are back to scorch the silver screen and this time it not about actions and reactions but this time they opted for humour and tickle the funny bones of the audience. ‘Poster Boys’ is a laughter riot with ‘nasbandi’ (male vasectomy) forms the backdrop of the story. The film has some funny Sunny Deol’s trademark dialogues like 'Tareek pe tareek’, 'Jab yeh dhai kilo ka haath kisi pe padta hai na ... toh aadmi uthta nahi ... utth jata hai’ etc which entertains the audience.

‘Poster Boys’ starring Sunny Deol, Bobby Deol and Shreyas Talpade in the main lead produce humour from the stereotype belief of nasbandi while it relates to the cliché mindset in the country. 

‘Poster Boys’ is inspired from the real life incident which is also a remake of Shreyas Talpade's Marathi home production ‘Poshter Boyz’ released in 2014. Incidentally, the film was released just a week later after the release of Bhumi Pednekar and Ayushmann Khurrana’s ‘Shubh Mangal Saavdhan’ which also deals with 'gents problem'. Back to back release of films related to the subjects of male problem will entice the audience to draw a comparison.

The film opens with the song 'Kudiyan Shehar Diyan' from Sunny Deol 1999 film, ‘Arjun Pandit’ originally sung by Daler Mehndi.  The recreated version was sung by Tanishk Bagchi and it features Elli Avram shaking her booty in a mela (fun fair), introducing the three main characters of the film,  Jagawar Choudhary (Sunny Deol), an ex - army man passionate about taking selfies, never mind to click selfie even with the one hanged upside down from top of buildings by him.

The second unique character is Vinay Sharma (Bobby Deol) a shudh Hindi speaking school teacher who sometimes forgets his lines during the conversation, and the last but not the least is Arjun Singh (Shreyas Talpade) a typical recovery agent who is infatuated by Michael Jackson’s style and wears jacket worn by the pop singer. An individual photo session clicked by the three of them Jagawar, Vinay and Arjun at the mela spoiled their life and landed them in a tight situation. After a couple of days, their photos accidentally made to a PSA promoting male vasectomy. 

The poster creates a lot of trouble in their life. Not only had their social status ruined but they faced huge hurdle in their personal lives.

Due to their picture on the ‘nasbandi’ poster, 'fauji' Jagawar's sister's wedding is cancelled, teacher Vinay is threatened with a divorce by his wife Surajmukhi (Samiksha Bhatnagar) and agent Arjun's marriage with his sweet heart gets called off. 

As the trio unknowingly gets featured in the 'nasbandi' poster, they lands into embarrassing situation and became a butt of jokes that questions their fertility and mardangi. The trio then gets into action mode decides to find out the culprit responsible to have turned their life into hell.

Speaking about the performances, Sunny Deol and Bobby Deol basically known for their tough man roles in movies entertained the audience with their funny antics. Their comic timings were excellent and they have portrayed their part superbly.

Shreyas Talpade fits perfectly into the role of paisa wasool agent. Samiksha Bhatnagar has been able to leave her mark.

In the nutshell, ‘Poster Boys’ is a crazy film and if the audience wants some dose of laughter in their life they can go for it.
