What really works in favour of 'Desi Boyz' is the fact that it has a definite story to tell. A subject like this could have been tested frivolously but first time director Rohit Dhawan has ensured that he throws in quite a few bits and pieces of everything to make it one 'masala' affair. A set up like 'Desi Boyz' may have seemed like all fun and no seriousness had Rohit chosen so. However the young man definitely seems to be confident in his very first venture as a result of which he also brings in enough moments that work for the young as well as notso-young audience.

Desi Boyz is a fairly easy-on-the-eye film, with a couple of good songs thrown in. And thankfully, it’s devoid of twisted complications.

To conclude, it’s wrong to say that Desi Boyz will have you filling up with tears or laughing until your stomach hurts. In fact, it is a movie that sits very neatly between those two extremes in that it will make you laugh out loud in some places and it w
