Storyline

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)

Trivia

The story of Akshay Kumar and his nephew is heavily influenced by the plot of Adam Sandler starrer Big Daddy. The scene in the beginning where he enters Nick Mathur's Birthday bash and the surprise gets wasted is a straight pick up from Big Daddy where Adam is shown to be a irritating slacker just like Akshay's character.

Goofs

(around 1 hour and 35 minutes) Nikhil Mathur finished talking to his ex-girlfriend. He should have walked towards the steps because that is where his guitar and dog were, but he was walking towards a dead end. See more »

It's really an entertaining & worth watching comedy movie!
26 November 2011 | by (Gujarat, Surat) – See all my reviews

Akshay is back with his charm in Desi Boyz after giving flop movies like Tees Maar Khan, Action Replay, Patiyala House. Desi Boyz is probably the most entertaining comedy movie of the year. The Chemistry between Akshay and John is outstanding. Omi Vaidya is also very good in the movie. You will really enjoy the funny gags in the movie, especially gags with Ajay aka Omi Vaidya. Anupam Kher and Sanjay Dutt are also good. Glamour of Deepika Padukone and Chitrangada Singh is also charming. Story and Direction of the movie is good. Music is also good.

Overall, it's an entertaining & worth watching comedy movie i recommend you to watch.
