The formula hankering Bollywood has latched onto the ‘franchise film’ concept with a vengeance and the latest from the factory is Balaji productions’ ‘Kya Super Kool Hain Hum’. Unlike the actual franchise concept we believe in keeping only the name, genre and some of the actors intact. Stories have been of little importance to us anyway. Hence, the only thing ‘Kya Super Kool Hain Hum’ shares with ‘Kya Kool Hain Hum’ its former counterpart, is two inane fellows, crass adult humour and the lead pair of Tusshar Kapoor and Riteish Deshmukh.
The two are young city chaps, Adi (Tusshar Kapoor) a wannabe actor doing Teleshopping ads and Sid (Riteish Deshmukh) a DJ largely catering to Gujarati parties. Adi meets Simi (Neha Sharma) after an astrologer tells him his lady luck’s name will begin with ‘S’, and latches onto her for dear life. He gives her a diamond ring to assure her of his commitment. Sid on the other hands encounters Anu (Sarah Jane Dias) at a fashion show. Typically enough, Anu and Simi are good friends and typically again are seen chilling out Goa together at Anu’s place. When Adi realizes who the stone really belongs to, both he and Sid follow the girls to Goa to get it back, where there is also Anu’s madcap father (Anupam Kher) to contend with.
Like the previous film, this one too aims at delivering laughs with double entendres, expletives and persistent reference to body parts and general toilet humour. Just to give you an idea of how far it goes there is a lot of dog-humping and dog humour too. Nothing is sacred or spared not even the story or story-telling. There is a sketchy plot that merely gives everyone the motivation to behave in the loudest manner possible and add to the mayhem hoping it would pass off as rip-roaring comedy.
The film progresses on the spine of back-to-back jokes seemingly sourced from SMS and email forwards. The pace of the film is choppy, with the first half racing on and the second half sagging largely depending on once-before- heard jokes. This despite Riteish suitably investing with his natural flair for comedy and boyish charm, and the girls having fun doing whatever little they are supposed to do. Tusshar Kapoor’s lack of screen presence hurts the film immensely since he is one of the leads and no amount of spoofs or in-your-face innuendos save the day. Anupam Kher’s adds his brand of over-the-top manic nonsense with Chunky Pandey to keep him company adding some more decibels to the ear-splitting tenor of the film. The music packs in energy of the madcap proceedings but holds no power beyond the film.
There is a lot of buffoonery and irreverence in the low-brow film but little charm or intelligence. It is a dish spiced up for those whose sensitivity bar isn’t too picky, ‘offensive’ being the relative term it is. Kya Super Kool Hain Hum surely knows that very well and milks it to the maximum. All the best.
