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)

After a long time,a good comedy movie with a nice storyline
25 November 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

it is a nice movie.Its has laughters,good songs,good storyline and a different concept.The story is bit predictable.Comedy from starting to the end.sanjay dutt's and akshay's acting was awesome.Anupam kher is good too. The story is different. But who wants a story in a comedy movie.

John and akshay's Basically movie is made for you to enjoy during the whole time. chemistry is too good.Akshay after a long time did good acting. the movie is about two best friends,who makes some mistakes,in the end they get themselves corrected.

Characters like omi vaidya,anupam kher,sanjay dutt added more interest to the movie.Didn't expected so much fun from the movie.

So,movie is definitely worth watching or i'll say its a must go for comedy lovers
