Desi Boyz

Rated NR 122 min. 2011

Nick (John Abraham), a sacked London investment banker, and Jerry (Akshay Kumar), his lazy best friend, need cash fast and find success as male escorts. Because it's a Bollywood movie, not only is there no sex involved, but no kissing, either. Furthermore, their motives are noble: Jerry is about to lose custody of his impish nephew, and Nick's wedding is off unless he placates his posh girlfriend (Deepika Padukone). There is no equivalent in Hollywood films for the way the camera drools over the ripped torsos of the two heroes as they dance shirtless, caressed by chorus dancers. They make their clients happy and likely plenty in the audience, as well. Akshay and John have crack comic chemistry, and the film is all about loving them as movie stars. There are laughs, Pritam's lively songs and Sanjay Dutt in a special appearance. So: "paisa vasool," worth the money.
