Based in England, Nikhil Mathur is employed as an Investment Banker and has a idealist girlfriend in Radhika Awasthi. His friend, Jignesh Patel, works as a Security Guard in a mall and is the guardian of Veer, his late sister's son, and under close scrutiny of the Social Services Department. Global recession takes a toll on Nikhil - he not only loses his job but also his investments, while Jignesh gets fired for failing to prevent theft by a minor. Nikhil is unable to find employment and after Jignesh gets fired from yet another job, the duo end up working as male escorts with 'Desi Boyz' as Rocco and Hunter, and bring in enough income to keep them going. Radhika soon finds out and dumps Nikhil, while a Social Worker, Vikrant Mehra, takes custody of Veer and has him placed in a foster home. With their lives turned upside down, the duo blame each other and part company. Unable to even speak with Radhika, Nikhil is dismayed when he finds her in the company of a new boyfriend, Ajay Bapat... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Watch it again... Jakh Maar Ke!!!
28 November 2011 | by (Mumbai, India) – See all my reviews

While the trailers suggested it to be another "Shout-it-out-loud" Akshay Kumar movie, it came up as a pleasant surprise. The punches were strong and the timing was right. The combination of Akshay Kumar and John works perfectly fine with the two hottesties of Bollywood not leaving any scope for anymore glamor. Some of the dialogs, you just won't forget (main 6 feet ka hoon aur tum 5 feet 8 inch ki lagti ho. we look great together). Kudos to the writer to effectively tying up the UK job losses issue with the story of the movie. Besides the four leads, commendable performances by Sanjay Dutt, Anupam Kher and the SILENCER (Omi Vaidya). After a long time, comes a movie from Akki which is worth second watch and I bet you will still LOL!!! Songs like Make some noise for the Desi Boyz, Jakh Maar Ke and Subah Hone Na De are just cheery on top.

Definitely the best entertainer of the year and a must-watch for everyone.
