A Pretty Decent Remake Of The Marathi Blockbuster
12 September 2017 | by (India) – See all my reviews

An official remake of Sameer Patil's 2014 Marathi runaway hit "Poshter Boyz",Shreyas Talpade's directorial debut 'Poster Boys' deals with the highly socially relevant issue of male sterilization in a light- hearted tone with satisfactory dose of slapstick and verbal humor to label it as a decent entertainer for the single screen audience in particular.Most importantly the movie marks the come back of Bobby Deol into the big screens after a hiatus of almost 4 years,who has managed to give out a solid performance that's instantly lovable.

The saving grace of the movie for most part is the brilliant chemistry between Deol brothers and Shreyas,and the trio ensures that the loopholes on the storyline is concealed up to an extent.The screenplay credited to the duo of Bunty Rathore and Paritosh Painter is filled with abundance of comic sequences which at times become a bit too loud and repetitive.

The climax portions puts forward a commendable social message which could have been more impactful had the screenplay been less predictable and giving more emphasize on the issue rather than resorting to low-brow humor.The movie had a feel of television sitcom at times which can be attributed to the constrained budget of the movie.The references to yesteryear super-hits of Deol brothers like 'Soldier','Border' and 'Damini' was funny and executed well.

It was a delight to watch Bobby Deol back on the big-screen after a long-time and the charismatic made it sure that the character invested on him is portrayed well with necessary mannerisms and dedication.Sunny Deol too gave an impressive performance and the funny sequences involving him were totally hilarious and the best part of the narration.Shreyas Talpade was impressive with his comic timing.Sonali Kulkarni and Samiksha Bhatnagar were adequate.Ashwini Kalsekar did her part well.

Two among the three songs in the movie was used in the credits and the idea to reboot 'Kudiyan Shehar Di' from Arjun Pandit has worked out well among the mass audience.Technical side of the movie was okayish.

Overall,Poster boys is an average comedy-drama that's worth a watch for its social relevance,some funny one-liners and neat performances from the cast.
