Boys Hostel, the remake version of the Kannada film Hostel Hudugaru Bekagiddare, has a storyline that is both simple and captivating. The narration is engaging for the most of the parts as the comic sequences work well with the collective effort of all students involved with the main incident, which gives a hilarious touch to the proceedings.

Actor Director Tharun Bhascker’s cameo is good with funny dialogues and generates good fun. However, the situations become a bit repetitive in the latter half, which acts as a minus point, but the narrative gets on to the track again with well put twists and humor.

Performances: Manjunath Nayaka is the most impressive among the star cast with his honest performance. The supporting cast, including Prajwal BP, Srivasta Shyam, Diganath Manchale, and Gagan Ram, also gave good performances.

Plus Points:

  • Performances
  • Comedy
  • Technical Elements

Boys Hostel is a decent dark comedy drama that has well produced entertainment. The natural performances along with the strong technical elements work well for the film, while the repetitive and sluggish parts in the second half act against it. It is an enjoyable experience for youth audiences, while for others it can be said as a choice movie
