Bollywood film Review ‘Boyss Toh Boyss Hain’
Rating – 2
Produced by Anup Jalota and Chaitannya Swami and directed by Amit Vats, ‘Boyss Toh Boyss Hain’ has an ensemble cast that includes the super-talented Gulshan Grover, Anshuman Jha, Dhruv Ganesh and debutant Aarya Kumar in the lead, other than these Aadil Hussain, Divya Dutta, Manu Rishi Chadha are also performing.
This slice of life film is the season’s most rib-tickling laugh riot – which will leave you wondering if boys ever evolve into men…!
‘Boyss Toh Boyss Hain’ is a story of four youths grappling with their own unique situations that make their life a thrilling roller coaster ride. From impotency to socially dysfunctional girlfriends and from selling sex to fending off materialistic parents and eventually a rape charge, this not-so-awesome foursome live through the most hilarious, embarrassing and even thought-provoking moments.
Although the film’s promos may seem enticing, the film fails to hit the bull’s eye. The comedy sequences with its punches somehow fail to evoke laughter. The script could have been tighter. The directorial punches are lacking.
On the acting front, a commendable job by Gulshan Grover, Divya Dutta and all the four heroes. They are all natural and aptly fit the characters. Low production values mar the film. Obviously the film didn’t find buyers until Kai Po Che hero Rajkumar Yadav made a mark for himself in the commercial stream.
Overall, a competent effort which could have made a hit provided the director had focussed on making it a laugh riot.
