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.

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.
