pbPoster Boys is the story of three men whose lives turn upside down for no fault of theirs. Vinay Sharma (Bobby Deol) is a docile school teacher, Arjun Singh (Shreyas Talpade) is an over enthusiastic school teacher while Jagaavar Chaudhary (Sunny Deol) is the explosive but also well-mannered retired army officer. They reside in a village called Jangheti and one day, they find their pictures on a poster promoting vasectomy. They are immediately ridiculed and the trio try their best to convince their near and dear ones that they haven’t undergone the procedure and that their pictures have been wrongly used. They decide to take on the system to avenge the humiliation that they suffered. What happens next and whether they get justice forms the rest of the film.

” It’s a comedy that serves up more of the same. While that’s not necessarily a bad thing, it’s also not the most exciting prospect.”

Negative Reviews

“Poster Boys’s school play enthusiasm never aims above a low IQ comedy expecting us to guffaw at the sight of Bobby, his wife and kids wearing the same set of bright yellow, Hello Kitty-print pyjama suits.”
– Rediff

“A remake of the Marathi film with the same name (it’s ‘Poshter Boys’), this comedy of errors gets really funny in places, and sags in others. It makes for a one-time watch.”
– Nowrunning

” Bobby, Sunny Deol spill LOL moments in Shreyas Talpade’s directorial debut”

“This film about three men – Sunny Deol, Bobby Deol and Shreyas Talpade – whose pictures accidentally end up on the poster of a vasectomy campaign isn’t even smart enough to be a satire”
– Filmcompanion

“This Sunny and Bobby Deol starrer is a sorry mess of a film”
– Indianexpress
