Ritesh Deshmukh and Tusshar Kapoor New Bollywood Film Kyaa Super Kool Hain Hum Movie Review:
The astute business woman Ekta Kapoor clearly seems to be reaping maximum benefits from the forbidden fruit. The lady is publicly taking up all hushed, explicit or so called “adult” topics and giving it either a dramatic or a comic spin. Result? Her films have been selling like hot cakes. And once again keeping up with her style, the producer is back with a ‘Politically incorrect’ film as they are terming it, Kya Super Kool Hai Hum. Whether this too just like its predecessor rakes in the moolah or not remains to be seen.
Story and Movie Analysis:
Adi (Tusshar Kapoor) is a struggling actor and his roommate Sid (Riteish Deshmukh) a struggling DJ. While Adi resigns to doing despicable and tacky home shopping television ads such as that of fairness cream, constipating, fat loss etc. Sid gets reduced to DJing at Gujarati parties and also making money by using his pet pug Sakru for mating.
Dejected by their lives, Adi approaches an astrologer who predicts that a female will enter his life and be his lucky charm. Enters Simran (Neha Sharma). Adi proposes Simran in their first meet itself almost scaring her off. Simran soon takes to Goa. On the other hand Sid comes across Anu (Sarah Jane Dias) and after a disastrous first meet, falls for her. Adi chases Simran all the way to Goa along with Sid where the latter realizes even Anu is in Goa itself. Whether the two failures in life end up winning those two girls or not follows through a series double meaning dialogues and mad-cap situations.
Seven years ago, Kya Kool Hai Hum had ushered the concept of adult comedy. While critically the film was severely panned, the audience had lapped it up making it a roaring success. And the writer of the film Sachin Yardi made his comeback, this time as a director, promising to make his sequel all the more humorous. So does the filmmaker succeed? Partially yes, for the entire first half guarantees a mega laughathon. Replete with double entendre and slick editing with the story moving fast, the first half makes for an entertaining watch. It’s commendable for a writer to create innuendos out of literally nothing!
However, the problem arises when too many sub-plots like that of Marlo (Anupam Kher) and 3G baba (Chunky Pandey) and the romantic track start interrupting the laugh riot in the second so much so that it leaves you disappointed by the end. A big issue with the film is its length. At 2hours 20mins, KSKHH ends up being too long-drawn and stretched. By this time, even the quality of humour goes down ranging from plain PJs to SMS jokes.
What works best for KSKHH is the stupendous comic timing between Riteish and Tusshar. The two along are responsible for maximum laughter in the film. While the other actors like Anupam Kher, Chunky Pandey, Kavin Dave etc. fail to even leave a smile on your face. Neha Sharma as well as Sarah Jane Dias succeed only in adding the glamour quotient to the film and have nothing more than that to offer.
Technical and Other Departments:
Don’t look for a path-breaking story here! From what one gathers, director Sachin Yardi yearns for audiences’ laughter at any price. Yardi has kept the narrative speedy all the way through and has integrated some clever lines to keep the hilarity alive. There are sooooo many hilarious episodes in the film and several naughty jokes as well. Also, a bucketful of double entendres. I’d say, the sequences and some of the dialogue will stun you. But it’s fun nonetheless, with hilarity unlimited. In fact, it’s a movie that can ideally be referred to as a ‘de-stressing entertainer’.
Any blemishes? Though there’s hardly a dull moment in its swift screenplay, I wish to add, KYAA SUPER KOOL HAIN HUM droops faintly in the middle, but again concludes on an unpredictably sprightly high. Besides, there are some jokes that work big time, while a few only try very hard to evoke mirth.
The soundtrack is scored by numerous music composers and the tunes are energetic and utterly in sync with the spirit of the movie. ‘Dil Garden Garden Ho Gaya’, ‘Shirt Da Button’ and ‘UP Bihar Lootne’ are wonderful tracks, bringing the youthful zest to the fore. Even the track during the end titles is high on energy. Ravi Walia’s cinematography is lively, with each frame appearing vibrant. I’d like to make a special mention of the dialogue. Witty to the core!
To sum it up, Kyaa Super Kool Hain Hum makes for a time pass one time watch. However, if for a better second half, the film would’ve worked more!
