Movie Review - Poster Boys
Director – Shreyas Talpade
Cast - Bobby Deol, Sunny Deol, Shreyas Talpade, Sonali Kulkarni
 
In India, when it comes to dealing with problems below the belt, Indian flicks have poor crisis handling skills! Poster boys is the directorial debut of actor Shreyas Talpade who is also playing an important role in the movie. It is the Hindi remake of a Marathi movie with the same name which was produced by Shreyas Talpade. The movie deals with the topic of vasectomy which is a very big issue in a country like India, where the population is ever-growing!
 
The film revolves around three main characters ‘Jagawar Chaudhry’ (Sunny Deol) a retired army officer, school teacher ‘Vinay’ played by Bobby Deol and Arjun a local thug played by Shreyas Talpade. The story is set in a North Indian village which has a lot of disbelief, stereotype and traditional thinkers.  The story is quite predictable and simple where three actors get into a lot of social and mental trouble after mistakenly being featured in a vasectomy (nasbandi) poster made by health ministry. As the story progresses it shows the corrupt and never ending government officials excuses and how the three characters cope with the situations. The hunt to find out how their pictures ended up on a vasectomy poster is the crux of the film.  As time passes all three of them understand, how difficult it is to get justice in a corrupt world.
 
Shreyas Talpade in his directorial debut has done a poor job as the film falls flat on its face. There are some funny characters compiled who have given a good overall comic performance. Poster boys is too preachy as it highlights too many social issues like, Triple Talak, Beti Bachao and other superstitions. One surprising and relieving element of the film is that there are no songs which save a lot of trouble! The first half is half decent while the second half is disappointing. 
 
I give 1 out of 5 Shors to Poster Boys!
