Kya Kool Hai Hum 2 Review
Indicine | Indicine Team
Kya Super Kool Hain Hum is full of double-meaning sex jokes that most of us receive on our phones. While some of them are funny, some aren’t, but most of them you’ve heard before. That pretty much sums up Kya Super Kool Hain Hum – some of the jokes work, some don’t and most of them are old and boring – especially the offensive utterly insensitive gay gags.
Still, a couple of scenes work mainly due to Riteish Deshmukh, who is a natural on-screen. Blessed with charisma and fantastic comic timing, Riteish is the only saving grace of Kya Super Kool Hain Hum.
Now, we all know Tusshar Kapoor can’t act. He looks awkward, uncomfortable and never gets one expression right. Not really trying to be harsh on him, but he simply doesn’t have it in him as an actor. He should stick to Golmaal films and try his hand at something that he is probably more talented at.

Don't look for a path-breaking story here! From what one gathers, director Sachin Yardi yearns for audiences' laughter at any price. Yardi has kept the narrative speedy all the way through and has integrated some clever lines to keep the hilarity alive. There are sooooo many hilarious episodes in the film and several naughty jokes as well. Also, a bucketful of double entendres. I'd say, the sequences and some of the dialogue will stun you. But it's fun nonetheless, with hilarity unlimited. In fact, it's a movie that can ideally be referred to as a 'de-stressing entertainer'.
The show belongs to the two lead actors and together they're a riot! Both Riteish and Tusshar are known for their impeccable comic timing. Riteish is terrifically hilarious in this side-splitting act. Tusshar is equally compelling and does incredibly well. In fact, both Riteish and Tusshar act in tandem and complement each other delightfully. Neha Sharma and Sarah Jane Dias get it right. Their confidence, enthusiasm and lack of inhibitions while partaking in a naughty scene, delivering a wicked line or sporting a reveal-it-all outfit gives the film further impetus.

Director, Sachin Yardi's film will appeal to an audience who trips over 'hard-core' sex comedies. There are scenes that 'vibrate' with humour, and squeeze ample laughs (some forced), but it's mostly a bleak story-line with random scenes which are padded with pun-fulls of adult humour, sexual innuendo, and expletive one-liners. For a sex-comedy, the film is a tad long (size really matters, can't help it!) and songs like 'Dil Garden Garden Ho Gaya' slow the pace. If you were sex (comedy) starved after Kyaa Kool Hai Hum, this sequel force-feeds you a double dose. This one's for teens who get a 'boner' out of bad jokes, but it may get a rise out of some adults too. Watch at your own 'risque'.

Sachin Yardi wins us in the first half but just can’t hold up the laughs in the post-interval section. While many of the jokes are funny, it’s disappointing to find lame SMS jokes in their dialogues.
Tusshar Kapoor hams a lot as the lovable loser Adi. Thankfully Riteish Deshmukh does a good job as Sid. Similarly, the yin-yang goes for the female leads as well with Sarah Jane Dias standing out as Anu and Neha Sharma overacting a bit as Simi. Anupam Kher is lovely as the disillusioned billionaire who worships pugs as his parents and collects Bollywood paraphernalia.
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 contrived.

The film (like its prequel) wins for its dialogues and spoofs of popular movies, something we rarely see in Hindi films today. Both the cameos- Rohit Shetty and Mushtaq Sheikh don’t elevate the fun quotient or take away from it. As the film progresses, your expectations are raised as the lewd-o-meter sinks below any standard of acceptable obscenity. But in hindsight, as long as almost every line has some gag that you haven’t heard before, you’d want to give a pat on the back to writer and director Sachin Yardi.

KYAA SUPER KOOL HAIN HUM is super hilarious in bits and at some points, dips deplorably low. Actually to the pits! Tusshar and Riteish are a laugh riot. Their combination and timing is super. 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.

Director Sachin Yardi’s KSKHH revels in its ability to present one stereotype after another in a long orgy of sex jokes, private parts’ references and general stupidity. It’s funny initially, and you feel like you may be in for a laugh riot. But KSKHH is like a party that starts to get boring in the first hour, one you keep looking for ways to get out of. And if you do stay till the end, a headache-inducing hangover is a certainty.

Needless to say, over-the-top is par for the course in this sex comedy. It helps no end that the two lead actors – Tusshar Kapoor and Riteish Deshmukh – don't seem to know – or want – any better.
Kyaa Super Kool Hain Hum strives very hard indeed to be a worthy adult comedy, a poor Indian country cousin of American Pie, but all it manages to be is a juvenile and clunky ride through unending yards of the kind of laboured gags that went out of vogue with Dada Kondke.
Dailybhaskar | Mayank Shekhar
All the humour is in the lines. The dialogue writer of this film is a decent chutkula writer, suited best for stand-up comedies or hasya kavitas. You know at some point the jokes will dry up. They’ll start exhausting you with their only meaning; let alone the double meaning. The film will lose energy too, given there wasn’t much of a plot to keep it going for this long.
Sify | Sonia Chopra
While the film includes sex jokes and innuendos every now and then, it’s not as offensive as one would expect. Perhaps the idea is to include those who like their humour risqué, not crass. In fact their posters are far more offensive, than the film itself.
Riteish Deshmukh is effortlessly funny and charming in his smart-alecky role. Tusshar Kapoor manages as well—except that the film will put you through watching Kapoor in a drag, and more agonizingly, in tiny shorts ala John Abraham. That this dare-bare act impresses the pretty girl can happen only in a movie like this. But if the film shows the girls in swimsuits, it gets the men to strip as well.
Rediff | Raja Sen
And that's exactly what Sachin Yardi's Kyaa Super Kool Hain Hum is, an A-rated film that feels the need to shy away from swearwords and put big, forbidding 'Adults' stickers onto even copulating canines. The film wants to be racy, but has television-friendliness forced onto its very being: which explains actors dropping their jaws at the (suggested) mention of genitalia and constantly hiding behind clumsy innuendo. Even a man reading Playboy isn't allowed to open the pages of the magazine, but flip it over entirely to reach the cover of the next issue. The covers, you see, are safe-for-Hindi-film-work.

Whoever went to a film like Kya Super Kool Hai Hum seeking entertainment, entertainment aur entertainment may even get it. But that also depends on what depths your taste is willing to plumb. It is very easy to make this reviewer laugh, the downside being it’s too easy to figure when someone’s thrusting (pun unintended) too much in your face. And that’s the story of KSKHH, offensively funny and overly wannabe.
Sadly, those not familiar with Mumbai won’t even get the joke. Just like I don’t get the point of this film. They’re all SMS and email forwards after all. Not a single song slips in naturally and are all irritatingly catchy, especially ‘Dil Garden Garden Ho Gaya’ and ‘Shirt da Button’

What works for the film is the fact that it is extremely unapologetic about the ‘nonsense’ that they have churned out for the audience. In the climax, when compared to Jai of 'Sholay' and Anand of ‘Anand’, Deshmukh says, ‘Hum ordinary film ke hero hai, woh extra ordinary films the’. Yes, the film is just that-ordinary, in fact lower than that. But they seem to have fun. Yes, some bits are funny, quite hilarious and Riteish and Anupam Kher share a ‘good chemistry’, which makes their scenes enjoyable to watch. But they are far and few in between. It is also unfortunate to see a veteran actor like Kher mouth dialogues full of double meanings. Kher’s comic timing remains intact but to see him being part of a film like this makes you cringe a bit.

Seven years ago, Kya Kool Hai Hum had ushered the concept of adult comedy. While critically the film was severely panned, the audience had lapped it up making it a roaring success. And the writer of the film Sachin Yardi made his comeback, this time as a director, promising to make his sequel all the more humorous. So does the filmmaker succeed? Partially yes, for the entire first half guarantees a mega laughathon. Replete with double entendre and slick editing with the story moving fast, the first half makes for an entertaining watch. It's commendable for a writer to create innuendos out of literally nothing!

The second and more important reason is the gags. Writer-director Sachin Yardi has not taken even the minimum of effort to write any clever innuendo-ridden jokes. ‘Ane ragdo, mane chaat’, ‘This is twosome, that is threesome and I am handsome,’ ‘I am active partner, he’s the sleeping partner’ or Macho-de or Thakur ke haath kind of jokes now belong to the past generations. Surely there are better lines on sms-forwards these days, Mr Yardi.
Tushar and Riteish, of course, are not new to this genre of comedy. But they don’t seem to be taking that much effort either. Riteish looks particularly washed out. Tusshar looks perky but that scene showing his bum was highly avoidable.
Filmfare | Rachit Gupta
To the film’s credit it does weave in a reasonable story into its barrage of libido driven dialogue. The two lead guys are worthless lads who have an affinity to speak in double meaning sentences. They individually meet two hot girls played by Neha Sharma and Sarah-Jane Dias and there on it’s a case of following the girls to Goa and winning over their affections. Along the way they take laughable digs at The Dirty Picture, Vicky Donor and Singham. And at other times there’s dialogue like, “No wonder 70 per cent of men in India cheat,” to which there’s a repartee, “The rest of the 30 per cent visit Bangkok”.
