Marathi Film review
Film: Poshter Boyz
Director: Sameer Patil
Rating: * * *
‘Poshter Boyz,’ is inspired by a real life incident of three ordinary people who, to their surprise, find their pictures on a poster promoting vasectomy, and how that ends up creating havoc in their respective lives. From getting ridiculed by kith, kin and social contacts to being subjected to trials and tribulations for the perceived inability to father children, the three men go full circle before they can prove themselves as victims of an error on the part of those handling the Govt’s campaign for promoting vasectomy in the villages. The media, the politicians, the health department all come in for a fair share of brickbats while the three men try to clear their name running from pillar to post while trying to regains their self-respect which they inadvertently waylaid while being perceived to have lost their masculinity.
The film works because it is set in a small village, with it’s people unexposed to the citified google dominated environment. Their way of life is still simple even though they have mobiles and the normal comforts that money can buy. Things come to a head when prospective grooms come calling at two of the homes featured in this story while the third, that of a married school master, is riddled with problems already before it can get worse by way of the poster appearance.
The result is a howlarious series of events. The three actors in the lead Dilip Prabhavalkar, Aniket Vishwasrao, Hrishikesh Joshi do a fine job of entertaining the audience as much with their well timed expressiveness as with their physical gestures and tics. The writing is also of good solid quality. The dialogues are never allowed to be too heavy for comfort and the plotting is fluid enough to retain interest. The effective pacing and the assured direction help the narrative along it’s humor laden pathways. Leslie Lewis’ music lends zing to the entertainer while cameos by Farah Khan, Rohit Shetty, Shreyas Talpade et al could make it acceptable for a wider reach. This is Shreyas Talpade’s maiden production, and he seems to have a winner on his hands! Go for it!
