Director duo of Abbas-Mustan shrug off their penchant for swanky action flicks and dig their heels this time for a comedy in KIS KISKO PYAR KAROON. And though the film hangs on a flimsy plot the duo manage to extract huge Laugh Out Loud moments from the goings-on on screen.
A few minutes into the film, and we are shown how the hero, whenever he goes out to help a girl in distress, ends up marrying her. This happens on three occasions, and on all three occasions he is just 'shoved' into the wedding mandap
so to speak.
Braveheart that he is, he bravely manages to keep them all happy. Their numbers are stored in his mobile phone as 'Head Office', 'Branch Office' and 'Main Office'. Apart from these three wives, he also has a girlfriend who he loves and will be marrying shortly. So you can imagine the confusion our hero is in.
On the advice of his friend, a lawyer, he houses all three wives in the same tower, on the fourth, sixth and eighth floor in the same wing (one above the other). The reason being, he will be able to see them all in the morning before he goes to work and also wave to them when he reaches the society gate. It's another matter that the wives are not able to figure out his 'three-timing'. But let's not tax our brains on that!
The problem arises on Karva Chauth
when all three want to see him face-to-face. He manages to pull that off too, by going on the opposite building when the moon rises.Also Check Out KIS KISKO PYAAR KAROON Music Review
At times, the scenes move to telly like episodes but at times, the laughter bar is raised so high that those scenes are forgotten. And going by the quality of the movies that have released in the last two weeks this feels like 'Titanic'. I would go one step further to say that it is actually VFM, if you are looking for some blanked-out time-pass.
All credit goes to Kapil Sharma, who is making his debut on the big screen. A well-known name on television, it is Kapil's comic timing and assurance of turning a nondescript scene into something humongously hilarious is what tilts the scales in favour of this film.
A fine actor, who does not go overboard, or who does not find himself lost in any situation. Even the most ridiculous of scenes, he turns on its head without looking like a buffoon and that is a huge plus for any actor. On second thoughts, I cannot see any present-day actor who would put life in these dead scenes.
Kapil Sharma fans are sure to a good laugh at the theatres this Friday.
