Mumbai, 5 August 2014: Shreyas and Deepti Talpade’s ‘Poshter Boyz’ which released under

their home banner ‘Affluence Movies Pvt. Ltd., on Friday 1st

office; receiving rave reviews both from critics and audiences alike. The movie which opened

with a 167 screen release across the state has collected over INR 1.1 crore in its first four days

itself, making it one of the largest openers of 2014 for Marathi cinema. The movie benefited

immensely from a very aggressive marketing campaign and strong word-of-mouth driven by a

novel concept, original content and rib-tickling humour.

Directed by Sameer Patil, the film features Dilip Prabhavalkar, Hrishikesh Joshi, Aniket

Vishwasrao, Pooja Sawant and Neha Joshi and cameos by Shreyas Talpade, Rohit Shetty, Farah

Khan, Anu Malik, Sachin and Supriya Pilgaonkar, Murli Sharma and Ashwini Kalsekar, has not

only the audiences and critics, but even celebrities who have seen the film lavishing well wishes

and praises through social media. The medium has been going gaga over the movie ever since

the film hit theatres. Speaking about the movie leading filmmaker Mahesh Manjrekar said,

“Leave everything aside, rush to a theatre near you & watch POSHTER BOYZ. Not to be missed

fantastic entertainer which makes you think.” Another legendary actor Sachin Pilgaonkar said,

“Poshter Boyz is a must see comedy film. It’s an excellent entertainment and I wanna see it

again.”

Right from the beginning the movie holds audiences on tenterhooks, what makes the film so

interesting is the storyline which has an instant connect with the viewers. Commenting on

the response his movie is getting, an elated Shreyas Talpade said, “We are overwhelmed with

the response we are getting for the film. Our focus was to make an original, honest and clean

family entertainer that would connect with the masses and are glad that our efforts have been

vindicated.

August has struck gold at the box

“What is very heartening to see is that the movie has been driven by content and the Marathi

youth coming back to theatres, while not depending on a particular channel or newspaper to

drive box office,” added Shreyas.

Poshter Boyz is a humorous take on a key social issue where three ordinary individuals of

completely different age-groups find themselves brought together in an unwanted situation

that has a serious negative effect on their well-settled happily progressing life. It revolves

around an incident of three ordinary people who, to their surprise, find their pictures on a

poster promoting vasectomy and how that error changes their lives around. Laced with a very

interesting and well rounded music and background score, the film explores the journey of

these three men through these trying times and their fight for justice.

Being produced under Shreyas Talpade’s own banner Affluence Movies Private Limited,

Poshter Boyz is directed by Sameer Patil and has been shot across real locations across Western

Maharashtra. Other credits include Producer and Costumes by Deepti Talpade, Associate

Producer Hadi Ali Abrar, story and dialogues by Sameer Patil, screenplay by Sameer Patil and

Charudatt Bhagwat, and cinematographer by Pushpank Gawde.
