Desi Kattey falls flat from the word go. The film is about two orphans Gyani (Jay Bhanushali) and Pali (Akhil Kapur) in a village in Uttar Pradesh, who are masters in the art of making country made pistols. They soon come under the radar of a gangster (Ashutosh Rana) who ropes them in his business.
What’s funny is the fact that Ashutosh Rana takes both Gyani and Pali under his wings despite knowing very well that they have killed his most trustworthy man.
Anyways, all is well, until Gyani and Pali meet Army Officer Major Suryakant Rathore (Suniel Shetty) who guides them for a better life by using their prowess for the nation. But then there is another twist, Gyani and Pali fall apart as their dreams differ and that’s what Desi Kattey is all about.
Anand Kumar has just kept the film away from all logic, screenplay and storytelling and has just done what he things is right; which looks disastrous after seeing the movie. It’s ironical that the director Anand Kumar and writer Aaryan Saxena have seen to it that the film turns out to be a disaster and trust us they have succeeded in their mission. The characters are weak and most of them are just there for filling in space.
Off the actors, Guddi (Tia Bajpai) and Paridhi Rathore (Sasha Agha) have nothing much to do and one cannot even call them props. Coming to Jay Bhanushali and Akhil Kapur, well both are poor in their parts. If at all one has to applaud anyone on gun point then it has to be Suniel Shetty and Ashutosh Rana.
The concept of criminal turning into gold medalist in sports world is although noble but the execution and ways of dealing with it are pale and dishonest.
Desi Kattey is a complete hopeless case of filmmaking and should be avoided.
Take a dash of Shimit Amin's Chak De India, add some of Ali Abbas Zafar's Gunday and a bit of Prakash Jha's flavour and what you get is a half baked D...0.5
