Anand Kumar's Desi Kattey, which hits theatres on Friday, didn't raise our hope much with its trailer or pre-release promotions. It was a lost cause right from the word go. Trouble is, Desi Kattey is even worse than what we expected!
The biggest trouble with Desi Kattey is that it bites too much, far more than it can chew. Everything in it is just random, from the boys' romantic feelings to their reverence to the Judge Sahab. The only thing that takes centrestage is random violence. Nothing about Desi Kattey makes sense anyways.

Wait, there is more. Desi Kattey also tries hard to be funny. Sample this line from Pali: "Ye katta hai, nirodh nahi ki kabhi bhi phat jaye."
Talking of performances, you will have trouble ranking the worst actor. Jay, an otherwise decent actor, is overawed by the melodramatic screenplay and looks like a sad clone of Sunny Deol. Ashutosh Rana, who could have done much better, should try and delete this film from his repertoire. Suniel Shetty, an army major who spots the talent of Pali and Gyani, isn't any better in the film.
And while you are at it, add one of the most unimaginative camerawork in recent times to the film's credit. Beware, the jerky camera movements and weird angles will give you a splitting headache if you choose to stay in the hall till the end of the film. The background score, equally terrible, sounds as if it is there to scare the audience.
Desi Kattey is one of those films, we say, you should not waste your time on. Films like these are best watched on TV, with your friends so that you can laugh on them.
