Poster Boys which is a remake of the superhit Marathi film Poshter Boyz which released in 2014, revolves around three men Jagawar Choudhary (Sunny Deol) is a retired army officer who is preparing for his sister Anjali’s engagement ceremony and is a big time addict of getting clicked and clicking selfies, Vinay Sharma (Bobby Deol) who is a shy, innocent and forgetful school teacher, has two daughters and a beautiful wife and Arjun Singh (Shreyas Talpade) who is a recovery agent who is in love with a girl, Riya and wishes to marry her.
The movie starts with the sexy Elli Avram dancing on Kudiya Sheher Di in a mela in the small village Jangheti, the whole cast enjoys and has a good time getting clicked and enjoying the whole atmosphere (You just can’t miss Sunny Deol’s cute dance). The ever so happy lives of these three men suddenly take a weird turn when Anjali’s would be in-laws suddenly decide to break all bonds, Vinay’s wife has unexpectedly left him and Riya’s family, who loved Arjun, are now strictly against her marriage with him. The three men don’t understand what is happening until they stumble upon a poster which promotes vasectomy and has their faces on it. How they fight the government and the villagers making a fool out of them is what the movie is all about.
The movie is full of one liners and good punches at regular intervals and keeps you quite entertained throughout the two hours. Sunny Deol, returns to the screen after Ghayal: Once Again shines as the retired army officer. Bobby Deol makes his comeback after four long years and Talpade’s acting and direction, both are noteworthy. The film not only focuses on the plot but also has some hilarious references to the past movies of the Deol brothers like Bobby’s Ringtone is the song “Soldier Soldier” and the use of Sunny Deol’s popular dialogues such as ‘tareek pe tareek’ and ‘jab yeh dhai kilo ka hath padhta hai to aadmi uthta nahin, uth jata hai’ to the context of the scenes are damn funny. The movie also stars Sonali Kulkarni who has a short, yet strong presence in the movie. Ashwini Kalsekar and Talpade’s sidekicks too deserve a special mention for cracking some quirky one liners.
The direction of the film for a debutant is commendable and the movie does a decent job in delivering the message it is supposed to at the end. The film overall is quite entertaining and is a family entertainer we would definitely recommend.
We would give Poster Boys 3 stars with a kink.
