If we intend to see a sex comedy, our general impression would be that the film would be having a liberal dose of double meaning jokes. Kyaa Super Kool Hain Hum first brings a loud laugh, then a smile and then you find it a bit monotonous and after a while you want to scream it's enough. There is sexual innuendo in every line and it becomes an overdose, too much to handle after a while, you wouldn't mind even walking away even before the film ends.
This film is only for that particular kind of people who love dirty jokes, those who don't mind receiving and forwarding 'A' stuff over the SMS and are generally not shocked with outrageous discussions on gays, lesbians, male and female anatomy and suggestive foul language. The Censor Board should be appreciated for leaving it untouched except for a few minor imperative situations.
For example, the tune 'Ooh La La..' has been carefully not used despite a tune that makes it very clear it is from Dirty Picture. The word M***** ****ER was explained in Hindi without using the English word. A bit shocking that Anupam Kher regardless of his age and stature had worked in this comedy that crosses a line of decorum and dignity.
The director begins throwing the gags right from the first scene and makes you accustomed as the film progresses. By then the audience tolerance levels are increased and once that is assured, the jokes become more whackier and embarrassing. A sample of the low intensity jokes - Anupam Kher plays billiards and is excited about playing with one stick and many balls. Riteish a DJ knocks on the door of a group of women in a hotel who mistake him for a male escort, the door number is read as Ek Saath 69 (1769).
He looking at a hoarding that advertises sanitary napkins and declaring that he needs it as he is going through a bad period. Tusshar wants to send a message on FB and asks Riteish what to write on her wall and his reply is "Yaha pishab karna mana hai" and from then on it gets a tad disgusting. Even the woman are not behind in throwing one liners at each other.
Riteish is outstanding as a DJ and Tusshar as an aspiring and a struggling actor in a film that hardly has any story. Tusshar Kapoor is quite a veteran in such slapstick comedies and he never oversteps on Riteish, they are doing their own thing but remain as a team. Chunky puts one off. All the actors wade through the risque adult comedy with ease despite the highs and lows in narration.
When the actors are not performing it is the dogs who are doing it. Neha Sharma and Sarah Jane Dias look immuned to the jokes and struggle a bit in showing their shock and disdain. In low brow comedies like this one can't expect or get too critical with their contribution. Those finding such content distasteful stay away and others can be sure of having fun, this one is definitely targeted for the youth.
