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)

Akshay is finally back !
25 November 2011 | by wazankashSee all my reviews

Before going into the theater,I didn't expect much because the trailer seemed senseless and... since Akshay's previous scores were terrible in Action Replayy,Tees Maar Khan,Patiala House and Thank You,I remained hopeless. But WOW.The movie was more like a surprise. The chemistry between Akshay and John is excellent.Jokes were hilarious.Some flaws in directing.

Concerning music,Pritam builds up a good tempo in 'Make some noise for Desi Boyz' and carries the fun promisingly with Jhak Maar Ke and Tu Mera Hero with an all-together new breed and genre of music.

The whole movie is a laughter pack for everyone and it is one of the best comedies of 2011.

Don't miss this,Highly Recommended !
