The year is 2009. The world has been struck by the financial meltdown. But Nick Mathur and Jerry Patel don't feel a thing in their comfortable pad in London.

Nick feels smug with his successful investment banking job, the new bonus in his pocket and his beautiful fiance, Radhika, by his side, while Jerry is so used to scraping the bottom of the barrel and living off his best buddy Nick, that recession feels like home. But life has a way of pulling the rug from under our feet.

Nick and Jerry stop smiling the day Nick's company decides to downsize and unceremoniously fires him. And Jerry is informed by the Social Services that his nephew Veer, who is being brought up by Jerry, will be placed in a foster home unless he gets a steady job.

Desi Boyz is the story of two men who are forced to do something extremely bizarre, which gives them instant gratification, but the repercussions tear them apart. Its aftermath puts everything to a test, including their friendship.

“..has an entertaining first half and decent performances as its plusses, but a tedious and least compelling second hour stands out like a sore thumb..”
by Taran Adarsh [Bollywood Hungama]
“..the film is well-crafted and the dialogue is often snappy and wry..”
by Priya Joshi [Digital Spy]
“..the film doesn't boast of anything that even comes close to an intelligent quotient, but the perfectly tuned tango, salsa, hip hop between the boyz gives it a spicy edge and keeps you in your seats, goofily munching your popcorns..”
by Nikhat Kazmi [Times of India]
