Statutory warning: This review is for adults only and for those who enjoy double-meaning jokes
Double entendre a plenty - Fakhri, Penty, aano ragdo, maaro chaat, diks nahi hai... But when it comes to calling a spade a spade, and reveling in the comedy of a situation, Ekta, Balaji and Tusshar get cold feet. Dressed as a transsexual, Tusshar's character (Adi) has to smooch Simran (Neha Sharma). The Kapoor lad falls flat, the Balaji camera cheats and instead of being 'machode', he comes across like a wet pussy! 'I guess that's the closest he will come to a Pussy.' I'm not saying this, Sid (Riteish Deshmukh) is.
KYAA SUPER KOOL HAIN HUM is super hilarious in bits and at some points, dips deplorably low. Actually to the pits! The parts that really pull the movie down are with Chunkey Pandey who is able to make a billionaire (Anupam Kher) believe that a Pug is the reincarnation of his mother even while his daughter Anu Marlo (Sarah Jane Dias) cries hoarse telling him to chuck out the fraud. Chunky has some really sad situations and lines that present him more like a monkey!
I can understand Balaji stooping to deplorable limits, but how could the censors allow scenes where religious sentiments are being hurt. A priest is conducting the marriage of two pugs; Holy Water is referred to in a derogatory manner by Chunkey and he talks of having the Last Supper with Jesus. WERE THE PEOPLE IN AUTHORITY IN THE CENSOR BOARD SLEEPING? Giving an 'A' certificate does not mean anything can pass in the name of humour. This is crass. Pathetic. Methinks those scenes should be edited out, pronto!
Sid and Adi are two friends. While Adi (Tusshar) is a struggling actor (fiction is stranger than fact!), Sid has Sakhru (his Pug) who earns for him. Sakhru is a male pug whose services are much sought after through a vet for her clients with female pugs. An astrologer by the name of Sunima Menon tells Adi to look out for a woman whose name starts with 'S'. She will be the cause of his stardom, she informs him. He bumps into Simran and is immediately offered Chimgum, a Rohit Shetty film. He wants to marry Simran but Simran runs away to Goa to escape his charms, with her friend Anu Marlo. Anu on the other hand has gotten even with Sid who had a hand in her 'embarrassing moment' on the ramp.
Coming back to the performances, Tusshar and Riteish are a laugh riot. Both their characters are introduced intelligently (as intelligently as a comedy will allow) but sadly fails to keep the leverage throughout. The whitening cream advertising featuring Tusshar and his aspirations to become an actor and Riteish's introduction as a DJ and his standing outside the ladies room for BJ are well thought scenes executed perfectly that has your sides splitting.
Give any crass act to Riteish and he has this ability to make it look surreal. It's his ability to enact without letting a situation weigh him down coupled with his innocent looks that does the trick for him. He is proving to be super adept at comedy. Actually he is having a ball.
Apart from Tusshar and Riteish it is Neha Sharma who shows purpose in her acting. Expressing with her eyes and a super confident body language she holds her own in key scenes. After an assured performance in TERI MERI KAHAANI, Neha stamps her authority in KSKHA as well.
Ceetis and taalis are bound to accompany a few scenes and the first three days will tell if it has crossed the Rs 100-crore mark, which I'm afraid it might.
