Kya Super Kool Hain Hum Review

Kya Super Kool Hai Hum is the sequel to one of 2005’s biggest hits. The male actors – Riteish Deshmukh and Tushhar Kapoor – have been retained, while two fresh female faces – Sarah Jane Dias and Neha Sharma – replace Isha Koppikar and Neha Dhupia.

Sachin Yardi, the writer of the first film, takes over the directorial reigns from Sangeeth Sivan.

Story: The film is about two crazy men. Adi (Tusshar Kapoor), a struggling actor and Sid, a struggling DJ. While Adi is desperate to sign a Rohit Shetty film, Sid earns a living by mating his pet-dog Fakhru.

Adi then approaches an astrologer, who predicts that his fortune would turn around when he meets a girl whose name starts from ‘S’. Soon, he bumps into Simran (Neha Sharma). 400 odd calls later, he convinces her for a dinner date and proposes marriage. In disbelief, she rejects saying she’s a lesbian.

Sid falls for Simran’s friend Anu (Sarah Jane Dias) and both land up in Goa.

Kya Super Kool Hai Hum Review

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. Oh and his John Abraham Dostana-act should be removed as soon as possible – one of the several cringe-worthy moments in the film.

Neha Sharma looks pretty and acts well, Sarah Jane Dias doesn’t get her dialogue delivery right. Anupam Kher makes a caricature of himself on-screen and so does Chunky Pandey.

The songs are catchy, but the placement is poor. Hum Toh Hain Cappuccino – UP Bihar Lootne – is easily the best of the lot.

Overall, Kya Super Kool Hain Hum has a decent first half where some gags work and a boring second. With funnier jokes and a better actor to compliment Riteish, the film would’ve worked better!

Rating: ★★☆☆☆
