There is laughter galore in 'Kyaa Super Kool Hain Hum' but here is some caution - it is for those who totally acknowledge, agree and accept the genre laid out for them and are happy to pick and choose from some out and out crudity that is spread wide open.
Hence for those who have issues with jokes related to sex, caste, creed, colour or social standing may well stay away because frankly, the film is not meant for them in the first place. However those who mainly want their two and a half hours in theatres to go by in a jiffy with funny jokes and double entendres that are actually as straight as it gets, KSKHH is a good bet.
It is actually tough to even arrive at a basic synopsis of the film. Is it about two struggling youngsters Riteish Deshmukh and Tusshar Kapoor? Is it about their love life, or the lack of it, when they come across Sarah-Jane Dias and Neha Sharma? Is it about a father (Anupam Kher) who goes insane and starts believing in pugs being his parents? Is it about the pug itself which is forever on Viagra? Or is it about a series of joke books that came writer-director Sachin Yardi's way who was as overjoyed as a kid in a candy bar who struggled to decide what to pick and choose?
Perhaps that was indeed the case because at the end of it all, 'Kyaa Super Kool Hain Hum' turns out to be a film which is basically a series of gags, double entendres, extended scenes depicting comedy of errors, really short takes which could well be limited characters Twitter jokes or standalone pieces that may be a status update on Facebook. Now this wouldn't have been possible if not for the comic timing of Riteish Deshmukh and Tusshar Kapoor who have time and again shown their hold over this genre.
On the other hand it is actually a pleasant surprise to see Neha as well as Sarah to be actually enjoying a good screen time. One would have expected the girls to be mainly decorative pieces with 'kool' boys picking up the best lines and scenes. However at the core of it, the film is basically a love story of these two couples which means the girls never really go out of the picture.
Moreover they play their part well and convincing while also indulging in reasonable skin show that keeps all segments of audience happy. While it would be hard to ignore Sarah's walk in a bikini, Neha would gain some fans for her cute-n-hot girl act.
What doesn't quite succeed though are two episodes - the ones featuring Chunky Pandey and Kevin Dave respectively. Former still has some part to play in the film's plot but has been handled rather amateurishly. On the other hand one wonders what really made the makers hold on to Kevin's part at the script level itself. Totally unnecessary.
Same is the case with the songs as well. Despite being tuned well with 'Dil Garden Garden' being the pick of the lot, each of the four songs is totally avoidable. In fact they only slow down the film's pace at regular intervals. Also, though the film's pace is more or less even, the interval point isn't really the kind that makes you roll with laughter. Moreover there is a portion in the middle of the second half that just doesn't work despite the efforts of injecting one liners.
Thankfully the pre-climax and climax sequences are strong again and Sachin deserves good marks for not allowing the film to get into the Priyadarshan/Anees Bazmee category. Instead, there are jokes that continue till the very end, hence bringing KSKHH to a very satisfying end with some roaring laughter all over again.
With no storyline whatsoever, it would be a challenge for any filmmaker to spin something enjoyable that manages to grab your attention in bits and parts at least. However this Sachin Yardi film does take up the challenge and keeps the viewer entertained for most part of its 140 minutes length.
This is remarkable, considering the fact that the basic plot is so paper thin. At the end of it all, the film does make you laugh with quite a few jokes reverberating in your mind even as end credits roll.
