    A stretched, un-KOOL, waste-of-a comedy!  


    You have to give it to the puns in the movie, ‘La Whore Da Dhabba, BRA. One, Indian Idle and ‘Ms. Rose Mary Marlo as Roz Meri Maar Lo.’ But leaving the ‘hinglish’ tags aside, everything with Kyaa Super Kool Hain Hum is absolutely absurd and outrageous.

    Balaji Telefilms presents a very distasteful film, trying hard to ape an American Pie, which seems a far-fetched dream, let alone their ambitions to compete with probably a Borat. The very Un-Kool film has visibly failed in their plan.

    Kyaa Super Kool Hain Hum is not ‘sex comedy’ material. The writer and director Sachin Yardi, has retired himself from the words - ‘sex, gay, homosexual’ and has tried to scream ‘SEX’ so badly that the movie is a long (2 hours 25 minutes) dull, tiresome bore!

    Ekta Kapoor who was fully involved with the making and post production of the film presents a dreary comedy about 2 men – Adi – the miserable looking Tusshar Kapoor who is an even worse actor, and Sid played by Riteish Deshmukh whose best lines in the movie are the ones we already saw in the first look of the film.

    Tusshar Kapoor, a struggling actor in the film (and in life in general!) appears in all sorts of teleshopping ads to make his mark in the industry. His dialogues and bodily movements of quivering hilariously, as if a vibrator was planted somewhere deep inside his body keeps the audience entertained enough to stay curious for the first 45 minutes of the film. But because of the film’s threadbare concept with very few scenes that will bring a grin to your face, the rest of the film becomes plain ridiculous and annoying.

    And as the makers rave about how the film is for people who can handle a generous dose of adult comedy, you can rest assure that the main target audience of the film is excited teenagers who simply pat themselves on their backs after deciphering the meaning of a double-meaning joke and wonder if they can celebrate adulthood far earlier than they are supposed to - like for instance, understanding what ‘BJ’ stands for.

    There’s a scene in which Riteish Deshmukh, is complimented by a gay admirer who calls him ‘witty'. Mr. Deshmukh responds by saying, “If I am VT, then you are Churchgate,” and the makers expect the audience to burst into splits into that. Damn!

    In another scene Tusshar labels a white foreigner 'Albino ki aulad'. Damn again!

    So now that we’re out with it, it is apparent that the movie is peppered with such mind-numbing jokes. With open leg-pulling of Rajnikanth as 'GOD', Sunny Leone, the film Dostana and filled with open advertising for Capaccino and juice brands, the film lacks originality. Because it even takes unbelievable imagination to make a spoof!  

    After a first half that at least makes you laugh and giggle for right and wrong reasons, the second half puts you off to sleep. It has nothing good about it and even Anupam Kher, with a barmy character to play doesn’t impress!

    Contrary to what people may think, the two female leads, both with not over an hour of role combined actually deliver very good performances. Sarah Jane Dias and Neha Sharma are not bad to look at, at all and they are good actresses as well!

    In the first half of the film we see glimpses of Rohit Shetty in conversation with Tusshar Kapoor. Well! For those scenes you cannot deny that you feel awed by the amazing director who looks handsome on screen and delivers some pretty kool lines as well!

    Supporting casts of Chunkya Pandey as Baba 3G and Sakru ‘the pug’ who is a canine pimped out as a bread winner – a Vicky ‘dog’ Donor, both who play very little role and disappoint at the comedy sequences!

    All the three songs in the film ‘Dil Garden Garden Ho Gaya', 'Shirt Da Button' and 'UP Bihar Lootne' are misfits. They may be great visuals - shot is Goa with actors in colourful pants and yellow sunglasses, but they literally seem forced and very out of place in the movie.

    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 artificial. The 'Dil Garden Garden Ho Gaya,' song is fun and Mayur Puri and Kumaar’s lyrics are ok-ok!

    Aarif Shaikh’s editing is very good and keeps the film a smooth watch. Ravi Walia’s cinematography alright!

    But hats off to Bosco-Caesar’s choreography, it keeps you very glued to the screen as a lot of ‘chaltha hain’ actors and dancers, with lots of left feet move to songs that are fast and fun!

    One major aspect that is off beam about the film and we definitely need to call it a marketing blunder, is that all the ‘super kool’ adult jokes have already been seen in the trailer and apart from those, there really is nothing humorous to the film!

    For audiences who shy away from dirty jokes, this movie is a no-no, but even for the ones who are huge fans of Road Trip and other ‘bromances’ this movie is thoroughly disappointing.

    With no action, no lovemaking and no display of emotion (well! There is one with Tusshar Kapoor claiming his undying love in tears, which is so pointless it makes you cry as to why you would buy a ticket to this) the film does not match the mark of anything more than an average comedy.

    As a mature audience who has come in for an adult comedy, 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. But Kyaa Super Kool Hain Hum overdoes it and is unimpressive. It leaves you saying damn! And definitely not in a good way!
