Kya Super Kool Hain Hum is the story of two men who are going through a bit of a rough “period”… Adi (Tusshar Kapoor) is a struggling actor who’d do anything to star in a Rohit Shetty film. Sid (Riteish Deshmukh) is a small-time DJ who’s trying hard to get that big party. Into their lives come Simran (Neha Sharma), who’s Adi’s good luck charm/ticket into Bollywood, and Anu (Sarah Jane Dias), who suffered a wardrobe malfunction during a fashion show, thanks to Sid. There commences a wild journey filled with dogs, lesbians, a fraud jyotish and, of course, innuendos galore.
Is this a super kool watch for the weekend? Read our Pros and Cons list to find out.
+ The chemistry between Tusshar Kapoor and Riteish Deshmukh. These two work really well in tandem, sharing a comic timing that’s super and delivering quite a few laughs along the way. Individually, Riteish delivers a better performance than his co-star (Tusshar hams it up, though I suppose that’s the need of the hour in such a film). However, it’s difficult to consider them separately since they deliver most of the laughs as one entity.
+ The gags. I have to say, some of the gags were really good. Watch out for the Nargis/Diana joke as well as the “sex on the beach” one (the latter actually had the audience applauding). Of course, the humour is all wicked, relying majorly on innuendos and double entendres to do the trick. And while many of the jokes are inane and groan-worthy, that’s exactly what makes them funny – if you’re up for that kind of humour.
+ It doesn’t get offensive. Even though the jokes are of the sexual variety, the film does not become disrespectful at any time – unless, of course, adult jokes aren’t your cup of tea (in which case I don’t see why you’d go see the film anyway). There is gay stereotyping that could make some people uncomfortable – but it doesn’t veer too far off the Dostana brand, so if you were okay with that, KSKHH shouldn’t be a problem.
- Stale jokes. Unfortunately, while many of the gags are original and work well, there are a number of “old” jokes thrown in as well – stuff that you’ve heard for ages via SMS/e-mail forwards. That sort of dilutes the humour and I really wish they had done away with them; it undermines the credibility of the writer.
- Dull moments. This is the kind of film where you need to be laughing throughout, because it obviously has no plot to keep you interested otherwise. However, there were a few down moments that should have been chopped off, and I don’t see why that would have been an issue to do… “flowing narrative” isn’t exactly a prerequisite for a film like this anyway.
KSKHH doesn’t take itself seriously – and neither should you. If you like brainless entertainers and specifically naughty humour, Kya Super Kool Hain Hum should interest you – take a bunch of friends along, in that case. If you’re the type to prefer “good cinema”, please stay away – this film has no plot or substance in any way (and it really shouldn’t). 2.5/5 stars.
