Kya Super Kool Hain Hum
If you find jokes about fair skin being better than dark skin – racist and latent homophobia abhorrent – then ‘Kyaa Super Kool Hain hum’ will not only leave you numb, but offended.

If you thought Kyaa Kool Hain Hum was a laugh riot, then you are sure to enjoy the sequel. However, if, like me, you find jokes about fair skin being better than dark skin racist and latent homophobia abhorrent then Kyaa Super Kool Hain hum will not only leave you numb, but offended. I noticed in the morning show that it was backpack carrying repressed teenage boys enjoyed the double entendres the most. The girls, on the other, would much rather have been watching ‘Cocktail’!

Director Sachin Yardi’s film is a catalogue of PJs, SMS humour and recycled jokes that have been part of public repertoire for years. One such PJ is when Sid (Riteish Deshmukh) and Adi (Tusshar Kapoor) are at a ‘page 3’ party and spot Mrs Godrej:

Adi: Mrs Godrej… What a cool lady!

Sid: How do you know she’s cool?

Adi: She makes fridges no?

A little later the boys – Sid an aspiring DJ and Adi a struggling actor — are ruing their fortunes. Sid is staring forlornly at a sanitary napkin hoarding. When Adi asks him why he is looking at something meant for women he says he is thinking of getting a packet as ‘mera bahut bura period chal raha hai’.

Among the funnier ones are Adi auditioning for a part in the film ‘Chingum’ and dreaming of acting in his own interpretation of Devdas called ‘Adidas’.

The rest of the jokes are too ‘A’ rated for a review. The only high point is the song ‘Garden garden’ — catchy, infectious and enjoyable.

Adi and Sid fall in love with two young women Simran (Neha Sharma, sweet) and Anu (Sarah Jane Dias, lacklustre). They follow them to Goa in order to win their hearts and to ascertain whether Simran is really gay as she claims. So every time she comes on screen with Anu, the ‘Dil do la re dola re’ refrain plays in the background.

Once in Goa they encounter Anu’s crazy father Mr Marlow (Anupam Kher, so embarrassing) who believes his mother Rosemary Marlow’s spirit inhabits a Pug. Now Adi has a field day repeating ‘Roz meri maar lo’ just in case you didn’t get the crass joke the first time. This opens up the canvas for a number of scenes for Adi’s Pug Sakhru to show off his overactive libido and also opens up the floodgates for Chunky Pandey’s overacting as a fake baba called 3G. Deshmukh is the only watchable performer in this puerile pastiche that is an American Pie wannabe littered with industry jokes and movie references. As always, the best chemistry is between Deshmukh and Kapoor.

Eventually Adi wins Simran; Sid wins Anu; the baba is exposed; the father comes to his senses; the dog becomes a one-dog pug, and you are reaching for your Saridon as you exit the theatre.
