No sex or laughs in this adult comedy
Film: Kyaa Kool Hain Hum 3
Director: Umesh Ghatge
Cast: Aftab Shivdasani, Tusshar Kapoor, Mandana Karimi, Krushna Abhishek
What it’s about:
Everyone enjoys a sex comedy once in a while provided it has genuine humour and content that’s true to the genre. But sadly, Umesh Ghatge’s Kyaa Kool Hain Hum 3 falls short on both counts. The Kyaa Kool brand, which met with humongous success in its first two versions, lacks punch the third time around. This one’s about Rocky (Aftab) and Kanhaiya (Tusshar), two friends who become porn stars when their pal and porn filmmaker Mickey (Krushna) invites them to Thailand. Things move forward when Kanhaiya encounters Shalu (Mandana), falls in love with her and even proposes marriage. But Shalu’s father (Darshan Jariwala) wants to meet Kanhaiya’s family before making it formal. Kanhaiya then turns his porn colleagues into his new family and how they cope with Shalu’s real family forms the rest of the film.
There’s really very little to talk about in terms of things to look forward to in this film. A few dialogues may perhaps bring on a smile and, to some extent, Krushna’s energetic act livens up a scene or two. A large part of the film is a spoof of popular Hindi films rather than the sex comedy that it claims to be.
What’s not: The trailer of the film, when released, had raised a lot of eyebrows due to its adult content. However, most of it has either been chopped by the Censor Board or changed in terms of dialogues. The final outcome, therefore, is neither funny nor does it makes sense. Directorially, the film has a substandard look and feel to it, and the performances are over-the-top even for a film of this kind. The gags on mainstream Bollywood hits are stretched so much that they don’t evoke any laughter after a point. Each character is loud and irritating– you can’t really blame any of the actors for not being able to pull it off.
KKHH3 is a classic example of what happens to a film when an inexperienced director handles an amateurish screenplay. It’s clear that the focus all along was only on shock value. But that was also chopped. The director has put together the worst ensemble of actors possible (Gizele Thakral, Claudia Ciesla, Andy Kumar and Danny Sura). Perhaps the only time the viewer will genuinely laugh is when Krushna justifies his porn filmmaking business by saying he sends his profits for the benefit of kids in Somalia.
What to do: There’s no sex and no comedy in this one.
