Desi Boyz (2011)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.9/10 X  
Two friends lose their jobs, then part bitterly after they get exposed as male escorts. (122 mins.)
Director: Rohit Dhawan
“ Technically the movie that gave Akshay his edge back. Finally a more then needed movie for him at the box office. Was a good movie with a message and based off a true story too. ” - Arjun
 
2.
Patiala House (2011)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.9/10 X  
a victim of British racial violence and profiling prevents his son from playing cricket. (140 mins.)
Director: Nikhil Advani
“ A warm feel-good movie. Entertaining with a message and some grooving songs. Truly this movie was under rated and written off as a flop due to other big releases. Akshay proves again that he is a legitimate actor who does know a good role from a bad one. SRK has tears in almost every film, but Akshay had one scene and it was legit. ” - Arjun
 
3.
Khatta Meetha (2010)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.7/10 X  
A seemingly corrupt petty contractor faces challenges from the local municipality, his family, his employees, as well as a former girlfriend and her family. (157 mins.)
Director: Priyadarshan
“ This movie was written as a comedy, but was more of a serious film as well. Priyadarshan is well known for his comedies and serious films (see Aakrosh), so he I guess mixed comedy with serious plot to get this. The title ironically fits the purpose. Akshay gives a wonderful performance and the suspense was amazing. I did not like how the sister died, but thats one of the realistic points of the movie. ” - Arjun
 
4.
Housefull (2010)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.4/10 X  
Believing himself to be jinxed, a man attempts to find true love, but instead gets caught in a web of lies. (144 mins.)
Director: Sajid Khan
“ This movie was a full on entertaining blockbuster comedy. Many people dislike it because they compare it to Hollywood, well, I am Indian and I like Bollywood and some Hollywood, so these copies don't affect me much. The concept of this movie was well done and Riteish and Boman stole the show. ” - Arjun

Thank You (2011)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 4.7/10 X  
Three wives engage the services of a private investigator after they suspect their respective husbands of infidelity. (125 mins.)
Director: Anees Bazmee
“ The cast of this film is one that could not let you down, but it did sadly. Akshay has worked with all these actors and given hits before, but I guess if you mix a whole lot of good, you are bound for a disaster. Akshay is far from the weak point of this movie. Sunil was barely there and Bobby was technically the main actor. Not well done at all. A horrible attempt at redoing No Entry magic. Songs were not great, Razia stands out. Comedy was alright. Message was decent. ” - Arjun

Chalo Dilli (2011)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.8/10 X

“ Okay concept, not much though. Akshay and Ash did well in their roles though. ” - Arjun
