IDIOT BOYS shows us through light and emotional moments that how good-hearted guys under the wrong influences loose direction and end up doing idiotic things they would not have done in the first place.
MEET SURMEET and GAURAV GOYAL (GG) are sons of two contesting politicians. Even though they are way past their student age, they are still enrolled in their area’s biggest professional college to gather votes for their parents. Election fever is on and Surmeet and GG are campaigning against each other. In the meantime both see MAHI (an N.R.I. girl from Canada) who is studying Law in the same college and get smitten by her.
Surmeet and GG try to woo Mahi in their own silly ways but she does not take their advances seriously. Instead she interacts with them as classmates in today’s age would. Surmeet and GG consider Mahi’s interaction as an advance towards them and think that Mahi is interested in having a relationship.
At a party, both Surmeet and GG approach Mahi and cross the level of decency with her. Mahi rebukes both in public, leaving them feeling insulted and frustrated. Meanwhile, both Surmeet’s and GG’s parents loose the elections and they now unite to “teach Mahi a lesson”.
Surmeet and Gaurav are not bad by heart but taking wrong advice from others and under bad influences do things that put their and Mahi’s life on a roller coaster ride!

ABOUT: YASH RAJ MITTAL FILMS
Yash Raj Mittal Films is headed by MANISH MITTAL. The production company has jointly produced its first Punjabi feature film, Idiot Boys.
A management graduate from BITS, Pilani and a former marketing expert, Anandd is a young film director from Chandigarh, who left a fulfilling job in an MNC and head started towards exploring and establishing his film career.
He realized his interest towards filmmaking at a very later stage. Alongside his marketing career, Anandd spent good time in researching on subjects of social importance, which he later transformed into Documentary & Corporate films and honed his story-telling skills.
In March 2012, Anandd decided to say good-bye to Delhi and his job. He packed his bags and landed in Chandigarh to understand the Film making business to the core and offer a total professional approach of filmmaking to film producers. Anandd then got a chance to direct his first feature film, “Idiot Boys”.
He is a thorough professional who believes in carefully and intelligently weaving a story that results in entertaining the audience and leaving a lasting impression in their hearts.
Quote, “No filmmaker in this world can ensure a commercial hit. But as a team we can say that the audiences and critics who really look forward to a good & fresh story in Punjabi Cinema will appreciate our film.”
Surmeet is one of the lead actors who will be seen for the first time in the film, Idiot Boys. Before getting into films, Surmeet has been a motivational speaker. He has been enthralling young and old with his wisdom filled words and has been an ardent guest speaker in the Leading Colleges, and Govt. & Social Organizations for years.
His passion for acting developed while he was honing his singing skills. His dream of featuring in a Punjabi film was fulfilled by the producers of Idiot Boys. During the shoot and on the sets, he was an utter delight to work with, aver his co-actors.
Surmeet plays the character of Meet Surmeet in the film; an obedient son of a politician. He is carefree by nature and does not have any interest in politics. Rather he is inclined towards learning music. But due to parental pressure he has joined a professional college to gather votes for his father, even though he is way past his college-going age. He gets influenced, and in all innocence ends up doing idiotic things.
