Critics' Verdict: Kya Super Kool Hain Hum gets mixed reviews


By Hindustan Times

Kyaa Super Kool Hain Hum is a zany entertainer that belongs to the 'hardcore commercial cinema' category. Sachin Yardi wins us in the first half but just can’t hold up the laughs in the post-interval section. Here's what critics are saying about the film.

"Kyaa Super Kool Hain Hum is a zany entertainer that belongs to the 'hardcore commercial cinema' category, as we call them in film parlance, aimed at magnetizing the masses in hordes. It's for viewers who are relentlessly thirsting for madcap amusement. It's not for pseudo intellectuals, neither for fuddy-duddies or hard-nosed and stubborn evaluators, who persistently dismiss and disregard movies of its ilk as lowbrow absurdity," says Taran Adarsh, Bollywood Hungama.

"Any blemishes? Though there's hardly a dull moment in its swift screenplay, I wish to add, Kyaa Super Kool Hain Hum droops faintly in the middle, but again concludes on an unpredictably sprightly high. Besides, there are some jokes that work big time, while a few only try very hard to evoke mirth," says Adarsh.

"After a water-tight first half, the film begins to spill a bit and introducing Anu’s exaggeratedly eccentric pop Mr Marlow (Anupam Kher) doesn’t help. The only good joke in the second half is Anu’s mum’s name: Rosmary Marlow (Roz-Meri-Maar-Lo). And perhaps Neha’s favourite TV show which is misunderstood as her preference for larger male parts, when she says, “Mujhe Bade Achhe Lagte Hain!" says Kunal Guha, Yahoo.

"Sachin Yardi wins us in the first half but just can’t hold up the laughs in the post-interval section. While many of the jokes are funny, it’s disappointing to find lame SMS jokes in their dialogues. Being an adult comedy also means that Sachin has overlooked the plot, which really doesn’t matter in the movie either," writes Roshni Devi,

"Director, Sachin Yardi's film will appeal to an audience who trips over 'hard-core' sex comedies. There are scenes that 'vibrate' with humour, and squeeze ample laughs (some forced), but it's mostly a bleak story-line with random scenes which are padded with pun-fulls of adult humour, sexual innuendo, and expletive one-liners. For a sex-comedy, the film is a tad long (size really matters, can't help it!) and songs like Dil Garden Garden Ho Gaya slow the pace. If you were sex (comedy) starved after Kyaa Kool Hai Hum, this sequel force-feeds you a double dose. This one's for teens who get a 'boner' out of bad jokes, but it may get a rise out of some adults too. Watch at your own 'risque'," writes Madhureeta Mukherjee, TOI.

"Tusshar Kapoor hams a lot as the lovable loser Adi. Thankfully Riteish Deshmukh does a good job as Sid. Similarly, the yin-yang goes for the female leads as well with Sarah Jane Dias standing out as Anu and Neha Sharma overacting a bit as Simi. Anupam Kher is lovely as the disillusioned billionaire who worships pugs as his parents and collects Bollywood paraphernalia. Chunky Pandey is good as Baba 3G. Rohit Shetty is fun in a guest role," says Devi.

"After delivering hits like Hey Baby, Housefull series, comedy is no new business for Riteish Deshmukh. Riteish seems to have mastered the art of making people cackle and that's what he proves in the film. Riteish does a great job in the movie, especially his facial expresssions work as an added enticement," reports OneIndia.

"Tusshar Kapoor is quite a 'master of his domain', we mean the comedy genre, alright. Riteish Deshmukh adds to this melee with his canny knack for comedy, and together the boys tune their comedy timing with tact, if not precision. Neha Sharma is pretty, pleasant and acts well; Sarah Jane Dias looks hot in her bikini act and catwalks through her part with confidence. Anupam Kher has shown us a funnier bone in the past, and Chunky is too wasted and over-the-top, even for a brainless comedy," writes Mukherjee.

"On the whole, Kyaa Super Kool Hain Hum is sure to get the affirmation nod by its target audience -- the youth. Despite the sexual tone, adult jokes, impish humor, the movie, at no juncture, gets offensive, distasteful or objectionable. In fact, it's one big joyride from commencement to conclusion. This one is for the masses, for youngsters, for those who loved part one and enjoyed its crazy hilarity. Kyaa Super Kool Hain Hum offers entertainment, entertainment and only entertainment in large doses!" concludes Adarsh.

"Kyaa Super Kool Hain Hum has some really good laughs, but the second half can be a tad disappointing," says Devi.

"Kyaa SuperKool Hai Hum is surely a school of sickeningly dirty jokes that will shock, disgust and scandalize but ensure that you have a good time. So don’t leave your brains (or any other organs) at home, you will need it to dig out the implied meaning in every line," concludes Guha.

@IBNLiveMovies: The director has not given any importance to the story. #Kyaasuperkoolhainhum relies on punch lines. #tweetreview

@IBNLiveMovies: Probably the writer was told to write the one liners only. He forgot to fit them in a story. #Kyaasuperkoolhainhum #tweetreview

@IBNLiveMovies: #Kyaasuperkoolhainhum is a spoof on Bollywood films. It's hilarious from the beginning. #tweetreview
