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.

With their lives turned upside down, the duo blame each other and part company.

At last akshay kumar got it right :) after series of awful movies (except patiala house) i had lost hope on him but what a nice way to come back with a bang :) Story and Direction - Story is not novel but direction by rohit dhawan is good considering it is his first movie. He has bright future as director.
Performances - Akshay Kumar rocks man ! He has performed exceedingly well - comedy he does good as usual but it is emotional scenes - the one with child where he showcases his ability as actor ! John Abraham does well - although he need to improve his dancing skills which was ordinary ! Deepika Padukone was also good ! Chitrangda strikes in small role ! Anupam Kher was good ! Sanjay Dutt was show stealer - he was brilliant in his cameo ! The child who play Akshay's nephew was cute and did well ! Omi Vaidya irritates a lot ! Music - Music is highlight of the movie ! Desi Boyz title track and Allah Maaf kare are my favorites.
Cinematography was good (locales of UK were beautiful). Editing was good though they could have cut down the court scene in climax which was too lengthy and slightly irritating.
In Other Words, Desi Boyz is no classic but it is feel good movie - a nice entertainer 8/10.
