Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon Review by Indicine

Rating: ★★½☆☆

Abbas-Mustan are the masters of twists and turns, and of the thriller genre. They do thrillers like no other directors in Bollywood. KKPK is their first full fledged attempt at slapstick comedy and KKPK is a through entertainer albeit without any logic. There are some glaring loopholes in the script but if you are familiar with Kapilís comedy style then KKPK should feel like more of the same. Thereís not a lot of innovation here but the gags do work and extract laughs from the audiences. The emotional climax, however, puts the film on a stretcher. Regardless, KKPK doesnít bore much and we canít say that about most Bollywood films these days!

Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon Review by Bollywood Hungama

Rating: ★★★☆☆

The film’s directors Abbas-Mustan, have been always associated with the thriller genre. Films like KHILADI, BAAZIGAR, SOLDIER, RACE etc, mirror this fact. Because KIS KISKO PYAAR KAROON belongs to a comedy genre, what initially seems like an uphill task for the masters of thriller is handled by the duo with ease. The director duo has touched upon a genre (bigamy and polygamy) that was popularized by the likes of Govinda in the 90’s. Their film KIS KISKO PYAAR KAROON, which addresses human instincts and polygamy, picks up from where Govinda’s films had left. Despite comedy not being their forte, full marks to the Abbas-Mustan for handling the full film with utmost ease. The remarkable scenes in the film include the underwear scene, Karva chauth and the confusion at the mall. The product that Abbas-Mustan have created in the form of KIS KISKO PYAAR KAROON will surely appeal to the masses.

Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon Review by Rohit Bhatnagar on Deccan Chronicle

Rating: ★☆☆☆☆

With the series of previous two flops, Players and Race 2, Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon is surely completing the trio of director duo Abaas-Maustan. They should strictly play with their thriller forte. Screenplay by Anukalp Goswami and Dheeraj Sarna is feeble and shows a dismal face for 2 hours 16 minutes. The music by Dr. Zeus, Tanishk Bagchi, Javed Mohsin and Amjad- Nadeem is ear piercing and just takes away from the so-called flow of the story. Statutory warning to those who are expecting some groovy dance numbers, they are rather sleazy ones featured on Elli Avram. But if you are keen to witness skin shows from one of those Katrina Kaifís look-alike, then go ahead!

Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon Review by Renuka Vyavahare on The Times Of India

Rating: ★★☆☆☆

When you watch a Kapil Sharma film with a straight face, you know there’s something wrong. Not that he doesn’t act well or anything. It’s just that his character isn’t funny enough as one would have expected. You wonder if the directors wanted to present him differently or he himself feared that his funny image might sabotage his chances as a mainstream Bollywood hero. Whatever the reaon, the decision to underplay his comic side (which happens to be his forte) and let drama and romance take center stage, doesn’t quite work.

Review by Subramanian Harikumar on Bollywood Life

Rating: ★★½☆☆

The biggest merit of Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon lies in the fact that it keeps you entertained. Sure, it might seem a little over the top and at times juvenile, but the film thankfully doesnít bore you, which is a huge plus point. Even though the basic plot is same as Govindaís Sajjan Chale Sasural, there are enough characters and loads of situational comedy that will help you overlook the storyís lack of novelty. Kapil Sharma stands out in his debut flick, playing the part of a man who, day in day out, lives in the tension of managing three wives. His nervous comic timing and his ability to make a serious situation hilarious benefits the film hugely. While you secretly pity at Kapilís state, one just canít help but chuckle at his plight. Kapil, even, shines in the dramatic scenes and shows great promise as an actor. Varun Sharma does justice to his role of Kapilís cheeky lawyer friend, who gets him out of troubles. His jokes about science and Newtonís laws infuses laughter. Even though he is playing a stereotypical role of a deaf person of Bollywood standards, Arbaaz Khanís antics and his dialogues are entertaining. Scenes like Kapilís attempts to hide from the prying eyes of Eliís father in a mall, where all his three wives are out for shopping are hilarious and outstanding. Manjari Fadnisí repetitive one liner ĎBhagwan Sabko Tumhare Jaisa Pati Deí makes you enjoy the underlined pun in it.

Review by Saibal Chatterjee on NDTVMovies

Rating: ★½☆☆☆

Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon strives very hard to be funny. But neither its half-baked characters nor the unconvincing situations that they are plunged into are hilarious enough to hold a patchy screenplay together.

Review by Sukanya Verma on Rediff

Rating: ★★☆☆☆

Indeed, the few jokes that do work in this illogical, tardy drivel have more to do with how idiotic they are then amusing. But mostly you cringe at the sight of Kapil posing next to the full moon from a multi-storey’s terrace whilst his starry-eyed wives conduct the Karva Chauth ritual for the four-timing half’s long life.

Review by Vishal Verma on Indiaglitz

Rating: ★★★☆☆

Kapil Sharma in a tailor made role is fabulous. B-town has a new entertainer now. The ladies are fine where Manjari shines brighter than her contemporaries. Cast that includes Supriya Pathak and Sharat Saxena are just okay. Arbaaz Khan is entertaining. Varun Sharma is first rate. Jhonny Lever’s daughter Jamie Lever is hilarious as the maid.

Review by Gayatri Sankar on Zeenews

Rating: ★★½☆☆

Nonetheless, there are some good moments too but sadly they are few! The theme of the wedding sequence towards the end will actually make you laugh! Based on contrived circumstances, this script is deeply flawed. And if you think Kapil couldnít have had a better start to his Bollywood career, then you are wrong. This powerhouse of talent could have indeed kickstarted his filmi journey in a much better way than this!

Review by Rachit Gupta on Filmfare

Rating: ★★☆☆☆

Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon is the quintessential family film. It’s comfortable entertainment with the right amount of popcorn quality. True to the masala formula, there are plenty of songs and exotic locations. There’s no action but a generous helping of humour. But all that genre specifics are part of a film that’s severely undercooked. Yes it will make you chuckle more than once, but two hours later you won’t remember a single thing.

Review by Shubhra Gupta on Indian Express

Rating: ★★☆☆☆

The only reason not to run out of the theatre, screaming, is that Sharma displays a surprising flair for underplaying. He is clearly building on his TV comic persona, but manages to employ more than the standard smirk, which seems to be his only expression on his show, to make his point, and there are places he delivers his lines with smart timing. He nearly makes you believe that under all that yucky creepiness, there is a solid, middle-class helplessness to his Shiv Ram Kishan, and then the plot goes and does him in.

Review by Martin D’Souza on Glamsham

Rating: ★★☆☆☆

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.

Review by Sarita A Tanwar on DNA India

Rating: ★★½☆☆

The film is a mish-mash of a lot of films from the 90s (Saajan Chale Sasural, Sandwich) but the screenplay just canít keep pace. An entire sequence in the shopping mall is almost like a watered-down version of the one from No Entry. Most importantly, the reasoning behind the heroís three marriages is far from funny and neither is the resolution. When you attempt a film like this, you canít be preachy and offer justifications, which is what the directors resort to in the climax. And after that, to watch an ending where they all live happily ever after and together, is a bit too much to digest. Production values are also substandard Ė the film looks tacky and outdated. Fine actors like Varun Sharma and Supriya Pathak look completely out of place and sync Ė we can understand why. The songs act like roadblocks.

Review by Divya Pal on IBNLive

Rating: ★★½☆☆

Writer Anukalp Goswami remains faithful to Kapil’s huge fan base. But he could have packed in more gags to make the first half entertaining. The climax at the wedding venue is undoubtedly the high point of the film. Even though the entire drill looks a bit unbelievable, it comes across as a perfect culmination to the story. Considering the fact that the buffoonery can leave you rolling on the floor, it plays an instrumental role in working as a damage control act in the second half.

Review by Shubha Shetty-Saha on Mid-Day India

Rating: ★★☆☆☆

The reigning comedy king of the small screen, Kapil is neither funny nor the charmer that heís portrayed as. Driving a fancy car and wearing three piece suits made no one an irresistible stud that they imagined themselves to be. The film, however, does make you laugh out loud in parts ó at some points, because it is genuinely funny, but mostly in sheer exasperation at the absurdity of it all. Two actors, Varun Sharma and Jamie Lever (Johnny Leverís daughter) make it little more tolerable than it is, with their excellent comic timing.

Review by Kunal Guha on Mumbai Mirror

Rating: ★★½☆☆

This film is reminiscent of the goofball comedies that worked in the 90s. The dialogues may not be rib-ticklers but the tone and interpretation of a situation could earn a chuckle or two. If you’re missing Kadar Khan and Govinda at their belle epoque, this one’s for you.

Review by Sonia Chopra on Sify

Rating: ★★☆☆☆

Co-produced and directed by Abbas-Mustan, the film may appeal to those who like and follow Kapil Sharma’s brand of comedy. But this is also a film where married women lead ambition-less, dull lives, and believe any tripe their four-timing husband tells them.

Review by Troy Ribeiro on Nowrunning

Rating: ★½☆☆☆

Arbaaz Khan as the hard-of-hearing brother-cum-don, Tiger bhai, ends up arousing laughter by default owing to the character he plays. Manoj Joshi as Deepika’s father is naturally brilliant. Supriya Pathak and Sharat Saxena, as KSRK’s parents, have nothing much to do, but being veterans, essay their characters effortlessly.
