Watch or Not: Watch it for the funny below-the-belt jokes.
You would think when they write the script for a movie, the writers would avoid “borrowing” jokes that you’ve been listening to since school or those stale SMS forwards. Thankfully, Kyaa Super Kool Hain Hum doesn’t overdo it.
Adi (Tusshar Kapoor) and Sid (Ritesh Deshmukh) are two out-of-luck men ecking out a living in Mumbai. Aspiring actor Adi acts in those outrageous teleshopping ads while hoping for his ‘big break’. Sid’s DJing skills are wasted on sad Gujarati-gone-wild parties. An astrologer predicts that Adi’s fortunes will turn when he meets the love of his life – whose name will begin with ‘S’. Very soon he bumps into Simi (Neha Sharma) and falls hopelessly in love with her. Not wanting to risk losing her, Adi proposes marriage within a few days of meeting her. Instead, Simi gets freaked out and lies about being a lesbian.
On the other hand, Sid does a gig at a fashion show. His stuck disc distracts a model Anu (Sarah Jane Dias) who trips on her gown and becomes a “wardrobe malfunction” sensation.
When Sid discovers that Adi had proposed to Simi with the diamond that belonged to his (Sid’s) pug Sakru, he decides that they must follow Simi to Goa to retrieve their stone.
Unknown to the duo, Simi and Anu are good friends chilling together in Goa at the latter’s home. And to add to the crazy quotient, Anu’s father (Anupam Kher) is a billionaire being hoodwinked by Baba 3G (Chunky Pandey) into believing that a pug is the reincarnation of his deceased mother.
How Sid manages to woo Anu, Adi tries to win back Simi and lots of weird dog-humping forms the rest of the story.
Kyaa Super Kool Hain Hum Review: Script Analysis
ISachin Yardi wins us in the first half but just can’t hold up the laughs in the post-interval section. While many of the jokes are funny, it’s disappointing to find lame SMS jokes in their dialogues.
Being an adult comedy also means that Sachin has overlooked the plot, which really doesn’t matter in the movie either.
Kyaa Super Kool Hain Hum Review: Star Performances
Tusshar Kapoor hams a lot as the lovable loser Adi. Thankfully Riteish Deshmukh does a good job as Sid. Similarly, the yin-yang goes for the female leads as well with Sarah Jane Dias standing out as Anu and Neha Sharma overacting a bit as Simi. Anupam Kher is lovely as the disillusioned billionaire who worships pugs as his parents and collects Bollywood paraphernalia. Chunky Pandey is good as Baba 3G. Rohit Shetty is fun in a guest role.
Kyaa Super Kool Hain Hum Review: Direction, Music & Technical Aspects
Director Sachin Yardi has done an okay job with this comedy film but he has failed to keep it even. While some of the jokes are bang on, the emotional parts seem contrived. The Dil Garden Garden Ho Gaya and Bihar Lootne songs are fun. Mayur Puri and Kumaar’s lyrics are alright. Aarif Shaikh’s editing is good. Ravi Walia’s cinematography needs improvement. Bosco-Caesar’s choreography is good.
