What’s Good: The best part about this film is the fact that it may be silly and another level of crassness when it comes to adding logic. But apart from that it never bores you. If not intentionally, you will still have a good laugh unintentionally. We are familiar with Kapil Sharma’s funny antics and well they reach another level in this film.
What’s Bad: Every bit of that script is worst than what a juvenile could have written. In its true sense, the film is a brainless comedy.
Loo Break: With every song you will need one!
Watch or Not?: Well, for Kapil Sharma fans, this film will be a treat as they get to see more of his comic antics. For those who enjoy meaningful cinema or at the least witty comedy, this is a disaster. So pick your side to watch the film.
The story revolves around Kumar Shiv Ram Kishan (Kapil Sharma) who is a wealthy man (we do not know how!) and is ‘accidentally’ married to three women. These accidents are wrapped in the the first fifteen minutes of the film and even though they may be hard to digest, that’s how the story goes. Simran (Simran Kaur Mundi), Juhi (Manjari Fadnnis) and Anjali (Sai Lokur) are the three hot ladies that Kumar Shiv Ram Kishan is married to, of course with his four different names. Interestingly, apart from three wives, he also has a girlfriend named Deepika (Elli Avram).
Kumar’s confidante and sidekick in the story is Karan (Varun Sharma). He is a lawyer and a savior for Kumar’s character as he helps maintain the balance of co-existence of Kumar’s wives.
To make sure that his life is easier handling three wives, Kumar shifts all of them in one building on different floors. In the midst of all this, he is also planning his ‘actual’ wedding not ‘accidental’ with Deepika.
Will his three wives meet each other and confront him and will he marry Deepika is what the story is all about.
Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon Review: Script Analysis
Like we have the ‘Smoking is injurious’ disclaimer coming before the film, this film needed to read ‘Leave your brains outside’. If you even try adding logic to this plot, you would be out of the theater in the first thirty minutes of the film itself; it is that shoddily written.
When I say, the film is devoid of logic, it is because the writers try to present a situational comedy. Their base itself is stupid as it shows a man who is married to three different women, has them staying in the same building and the writers expect them to never talk. Whoever wrote that script must broaden his knowledge and learn that housewives love to flaunt their husbands much more than their Gucci bags.
Other than that, the female characters are so dumb that it is a Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi situation. They cannot recognize their husband just because his face is cake-covered in one of the scenes. There is no detailing to any character and hence you never find out what business does Kumar actually run, which gives him the luxury of running three households in swanky flats, along with a swanky car too. Even the wives are just mere dolled up creatures who play ‘dress-up at shopping’ and follow ‘Karva Chauth’.
The side characters too are cliched enough and they add no color to the flawed story. The makers seem to be promoting the concept of polygamy with this film in a completely illogical way. However crass the story may be, it does succeed in passing on little laughs every now and then.
Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon Review: Star Performance
Kapil Sharma is surely a laugh-riot on his show but I am not sure he has the potential to carry a film on his shoulders as a hero. Comedy may be his forte but romance and drama are completely weak and it is not the best sight to watch him do that in the film. He tries hard to do every possible ‘hero’ antic and even tries his hands at dancing but fails to impress.
Even though the film has four leading ladies, none of them even remotely impress you. This is Elli Avram’s second film after Mickey Virus and I truly feel it would be great if she finds herself another profession. Unfortunately, her dance too is unimpressive and the whole ‘sexy siren’ image does not suit her well.
Manjari Fadnnis, Sai Lokur and Simran Kaur Mundi are extremely passable.
Varun Sharma and Arbaaz Khan (who plays a deaf goon) are the highlights in this film. They make you laugh to the fullest.
Supriya Pathak plays Kapil’s mother and despite having a small role, she makes full use of it with her dramatic act.
Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon Review: Music, Direction
Abbas Mustan have been the famed director duo for their specific genre of film making and this being their first attempt at coming up with an out-and-out comedy is quite a failure. It seems like a promotional film for the brand ‘Kapil Sharma’ who is present in every frame and I mean it, every frame. Unfortunately, the director duo do not make gold of Kapil’s excellent comic timing as they drag him in romance and drama too.
The editing looks amateurish and is as poor as the script itself. In the already illogical plot, the film’s music is another pain. Not one song in the film is worth a hear or watch and hence whenever you get the cue that a song is coming up, you must run to the loo or buy some popcorn and chat with the seller to avoid it. The ‘Karva Chauth’ scene is so pathetic that I would have pulled my hair out.
First half is still passable but the second half which is full of confusion doesn’t work at all. The climax consists of one big emotional speech that Kapil delivers and well, it deserves a standing ovation by every man who ever dreamed of having multiple marriages. The jarringly bad background score is another thing that will irritate you all through the film.
Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon Review: The Last Word
In case you know how to handle dumb humor, this film will make you laugh and if not, God save you. This is not Kapil Sharma’s best attempt at comedy. In the name of a decent plot, you get ‘Babaji Ka Thullu’ so I am going with a 2/5 for the film.
