Poshter Boyz | Movie Review

Three guys find themselves in an unexpected situation when their photos go up on a poster promoting vasectomy.

Think about it; three guys, a wannabe young politician Arjun (Aniket Vishwasrao), a school teacher Kulkarni Master (Hrishikesh Joshi) and a respected elder of the village Appa (Prabhavalkar), are leading peaceful lives in their village. Arjun is on his way for marriage talks with his girlfriend's parents, Appa has his daughter's engagement proceedings going on and Kulkarni is leading a happy married life. Out of no where their photos are splashed across the vicinity on posters promoting vasectomy, without their knowledge. Hell breaks loose when they come to know of this and thus begins their journey to sort the issue and clear their names from misunderstandings.

The concept is simple and it doesn't take a genius to figure it out. Though the director has tried his best to build suspense around the reason why everyone keeps flinching and avoiding the trio, it is more than evident that the reason is their photos on the posters. Despite the predictability, the plot unfolds smoothly and has a set storyline which keeps the film together.

Having said that, 'Poshter Boyz' has its pros and cons. Firstly, why would someone put in a full blown publicity scene for a particular cement brand in the middle of a developing story? Secondly, Aniket Vishwasrao is a fine actor but all he does in the film is overacts. Agreed that his character is flashy and wannabe but that too can be portrayed in a subtle way. Neha Joshi is convincing in Hrishikesh Joshi's wife's role but we simply couldn't fathom the reason behind her seething rage.

Apart from a few scenes here and there (the climax being one of these with the trio deciding to shed their clothes in protest), the film is mediocre and could have been a lot better. Blink-and-miss cameos from Farah Khan, Rohit Shetty, Anu Malik, Sachin and Supriya Pilgaonkar and producer Shreyas Talpade add star quotient but not power.

Now, the pros. Dilip Prabhavalkar strikes the bull's eye yet again in his role as Appa. His acting skills are a treat to watch. The other gem in the pack is Hrishikesh Joshi. His ability to deliver punch lines one after the other leaves the audience in guffaws and gives the film its comic angle. Pooja Sawant is the glam factor but has hardly any screen time.

Overall, the film is a one-time watch.
