Another week, another film. Yeah, that’s the most enthusiasm I can carry for this one!
Poster boys. Sunny Deol. Bobby Deol. A joke about Sunny Deol being Dharmendra’s son? Check. A joke about Sunny Deol causing all sorts of carnage and destroying everyone? Check. A remake of an old Sunny Deol song for no rhyme or reason, with no relation to the film itself? Check.
That is Poster Boys in a nutshell!
I watched Toilet-Ek Prem Katha in a theatre about a week ago. The trailer of Poster Boys was played before the film, and the response was saddening, to say the least. We were all sitting there silent for a trailer which was supposed to be filled with “comedy.” Frankly, everything about this movie feels third-class, be it the production values, the remake of the “Kudiyan Shehar Diyan” song, or the old jokes.
Despite the different concept of the film (the three leads finding themselves on a vasectomy poster) and being a remake of Marathi success Poshter Boyz (2014) which Shreyas himself acted in, Shreyas himself will be the problem this time…as the director. Actors becoming directors has rarely worked out well in the past at the box office, with examples being Ajay Devgn who failed with U Me Aur Hum and Shivaay, and Sunny Deol himself who failed with Dillagi and Ghayal Once Again.
Also, with the poor production values and outdated jokes, Poster Boys looks like a film that should’ve released six years ago, the same period when Yamla Pagla Deewana released. The public WOM (Word of Mouth) for Poster Boys will be mixed-to-negative.
My Box Office Predictions for Poster Boys:
- Opening Day: 3.5 crore nett
- Opening Weekend: 11 crore nett
- Lifetime Collections: 19 crore nett
- Overall Box Office Verdict: Flop
