Desi Kattey is a movie about two friends, who've been making guns and accidentally learn shooting. The story is about their journey of how one of them represents India as a shooter in the Olympics and the other joins the under-world. A good versus evil story on how pistol manufacturers choose diametrically different fields.


“ With an unbearably stereotypical story line, sub par performances, and a long drawn second half, Desi Kattey is a disaster of a movie will make you want to walk out of the theater before it ends. ”

I have always felt that when a director does not have top actors ( the visible face of the movie) the pressure of commercial success is on him and consequently his responsibility increases. In such cases,he has to have a strong gripping script with some amazing dialogue.( Citilights) .Alternately even if the music is foot tapping and the photography is eye catching the film sails through (Yaarian).

But if you have almost unknown actors in the main leads, a dull script with equally dull dialogue, a highly predictable story line and some highly unimpressive music, the end result will make you want to leave the theater after watching 15 minutes of the film.( The sad part is that all this can be seen by the makers as the filming progresses and it is correctable through some improvisation during the making)

This film falls in this category.

After 30 minutes , I was missing a remote to fast forward the scenes especially the insipid songs. It was indeed a terribly boring experience. Even the so called item number lacked excitement which shows the level of talent pooled and inspiration in to make this movie.

The story ( similar to Gunday) is about two boys who grow up as gun shooters in rural areas with the sole ambition of becoming dons of the area. Due to some developments one of them remains with the gangsters while the other is mentored by an retired Army major to take part in National shooting championships. After some conflict,the movie ends and everyone especially the audience is happy.

Director Anand Kumar had a difficult task in his hands with not very talented and almost unheard of two pairs of lead actors, a weak script. poor dialogue,and dull music. He did what he could but the product does not impress and is rather boring . There is no redeeming point.

The two lead actors Jay Bhanushali and Akhil Kapoor ( I hope I got the names right) appear to have done their best but are many notches below acting required by commercial Hindi cinema. Their girlfriends in the film also give equally unimpressive performances. Sunil Shetty acts and looks jaded for the role of an inspiring mentor. Ashutosh Rana does a fairly good job in spite of the poor dialogue given to him

Music does not help with some highly forgettable tunes. As I said before,they could not come up even with an exciting item number.
