(S)excitingly entertaining

MUMBAI: Kyaa Super Kool Hai Hum is a sex comedy: all the gags and innuendoes in the film are about sex. A generation back, it would have been termed vulgar but it is considered quite acceptable by moviegoers now. The film makes no pretence of a story of any kind and depends mainly on its dialogue and suggestive actions.

Producers: Shobha Kapoor, Ekta Kapoor.
Director: Sachin Yardi.
Cast: Tusshar Kapoor, Riteish Deshmukh, Neha Sharma, Sara Jane Dias, Anupam Kher, Chunky Pandey.

Tusshar Kapoor and Riteish Deshmukh are buddies and roommates in Mumbai. While Tusshar dreams of becoming a film star, Riteish is a DJ and aspires to cut his own disc someday. Tusshar meets his love, Neha Sharma, who has the habit of travelling ticketless in a city bus even as her car follows. On one such adventure of hers, when asked to show her ticket by the checker, Tusshar stands by her. For Tusshar love has already happened but Neha Sharma is put off by his continuous calls and stalking. For the convenience of the script, Riteish happens to fall for Neha Sharma‘s best friend, Sara Jane Dias.

Riteish owns a pug named Suckru, which is his main source of income. The pug is lent out for mating and the monies thus earned keep the duo going. All that Riteish has to do is play some fast music which arouses his dog into a sexual frenzy. The jokes are mainly plays on words, like Tusshar is Adi and his answer to Devdas is him, Adi-Das. He is being screen-tested by Rohit Shetty (guest role) for his next film, Chinghum. Neha Sharma‘s favourite TV show is ‘Bade Achhe Lagte Hai‘ and references to other film titles in a funny way. Tusshar also models for a teleshopping firm and sells remedies for constipation and whitening creams. To Tusshar‘s boast that he has one thing that girls don‘t, the girl‘s reply to him is, ‘they do, it vibrates and is battery operated‘. That is the flavour of this film.

Finally, when Sharma agrees to meet Tusshar, he puts a diamond ring on her finger; no matter that it is their first date. Sharma has had enough of him and, with her friend Dias, heads for Goa. It is time for some picturesque visuals and also to introduce two more funny men: Anupam Kher who is Dias‘ father, and Chunky Pandey, a municipality dog catcher turned conman Baba 3G. Anupam Kher is Baba 3G‘s disciple. The Baba relieves him of his riches on regular bases. He has palmed off a bitch, a pug again, to Anupam Kher convincing him she is his mother from last birth.

It so happens that the ring Tusshar presented to Sharma was made from a diamond worth five lakh that Ritiesh had lovingly put on Suckru‘s collar. The ring has to be retrieved from Sharma; excuse enough for the boys also to land up in Goa. More craziness of the corny kind follows. The girls have decided to pretend to be a couple to help Sharma keep Tusshar off. Chasing Dias, Riteish ends up in a gay club whose owner, Howard Rosemeyer, gets the hots for him instantly.

Anupam Kher‘s hobby is to collect film memorabilia of a peculiar kind. He has the tiny blouse Vidya Balan supposedly wore in The Dirty Picture, the soap Ramu Kaka used in Sholay, the sperm bottles used in Vicky Donour and so on! In fact, anything to do with sex and the film makes sure it is used as a part of its gags: there is sex talk, gay sex, lesbian sex, doggy style sex and what have you!

Kyaa Super Kool Hai Hum may not have much of a story but the script has been smartly put together for all the sex gags to be incorporated some of which again are well worked out. Music does not have much scope in the scheme of things here but the film has a couple of passable numbers. Direction is good and in control of what is at hand. This is not really a performance film since dialogue does the entertaining. What is left to actors is mostly buffoonery and Tusshar Kapoor, Riteish Deshmukh and Anupam Kher all do well with some contribution from Chunky Pandey and others. Of the girls, Sara Jane Dias is more expressive while Neha Sharma is okay.

Kya Super Kool Hai Hum may be crude but it does the job of entertaining and having opened to good response, it should sail safe with its investment at the end of week one.
