New Delhi: After a long break, the Deol brothers – Sunny and Bobby – have joined forces once again to win the hearts of silver screen audiences. The duo took the cinemas by storm on Friday with their latest release ‘Poster Boys’ which has been directed by Shreyas Talpade who can also be seen playing an important role in the film.
‘Poster Boys’ is an official remake of the 2014 Marathi hit ‘Poshter Boyz’. The story revolves around three men – namely Vinay Sharma (Bobby), Arjun Singh (Shreyas) and Jaagavar Chaudhary (Sunny) – who unknowingly find their pictures on a vasectomy poster. Apparently, the film has been inspired by a real life incident.
First of all, there are multiple dimensions to the movie. Simultaneously, it tries to serve audience humour and deliver a relevant social message. And, it was pretty evident that debutant director Shreyas worked hard to translate the same.
In the first-half, ‘Poster Boys’ lifts up the momentum by building the lead characters. The flick is effective enough when it comes to Bobby’s comeback. The viewers will expect much more from Sunny and Shreyas. The screenplay is flooded with slapstick comedy and lame humour which, at times, fetches a laugh or two from the audience.
If we talk about the supporting cast, ‘Poster Boys’ only flaunts overacting. The name of Ashwini Kalsekar must be mentioned here as she stands apart. With a very limited screen-time, she makes a positive impression on the viewers and leaves them ROFL.
It is the second-half, ‘Poster Boys’ gains meaning. The quest of the trio becomes a mass moment as they step forward to challenge the system. I felt that this was the essence of the script and more emphasis must have been laid on the same. Never mind, last few scenes of the film give the audience a much-needed dose of excitement.
In terms of cinematography and script, there is nothing spectacular and grand. What Sunny Deol does best, wasn’t apparently offered to him. You will get to see glimpses of his aggression but, sadly, that volcano never bursts.
‘Poster Boys’ is loaded with cliched comedy. I don’t think it will attract footfall in the multiplexes. Nevertheless, it can certainly charm the single screen viewers. So, if you have nothing to do this weekend, you can watch ‘Poster Boys’. Otherwise, there is nothing in the film that you will regret missing.
