There once were two doofus friends Rahul (Tusshar) and Karan (Ritesh Deshmukh). They pretended to be cool, lived secretly in the apartment they got kicked out of, borrowed clothes from a laundryman, went to parties to mooch food, etc. While Rahul seems sensible, he has problems meeting women. On the other hand, Karan, who says he is a playboy, has never been touched by a woman (he just makes up stories). So these two people have nothing much to do in this sex comedy except create confusion and try to get out of it.

The main story being that Rahul is mistaken for a serial killer and Karan is in love with a girl named Kiran, who is really a dude. Yup, lots of mistaken identities. Isha Koppikar plays a surly cop named, (get this) Urmila Matondkar sent by criminal psychologist, Dr. Screwala (Anupam Kher) to catch Rahul in his killing act. Only problem is, she falls in love with him. On the other hand, Kiran’s sister Rekha (Neha Dhupia) is sent by her parents to stop Karan from being gay. Rekha also falls in love. Confusion, confusion. Finally, there is Mrs. Screwala (Shoma Anand) who believes her husband is cheating on her with both Urmila and Rekha.

Why would famous hindi soap creator Ekta Kapoor produce such a flick? Its very surprising! The movie attempts almost every bad groaner sex joke you could think of. Luckily I had turned off my brain to watch this movie and actually laughed at some jokes.

Out of all the performances, Ritesh Deshmukh is the one who steals the show with his antics, especially when he gets beat up, but pretends he had a wild night with a girl. Also, his scenes about not knowing that Kiran is a boy are hilarious. On the music front, “Dil Mera” is the best song of the film. Technically, the film is average in direction, editing seemed a bit sloppy.

Despite the fact that the movie’s premise is silly, it still managed to be a hit in India so far. Sure, if you are really bored, check it out for a good laugh, but it certainly is not a comedy I would recommend for children. This is like the Hollywood flick American Pie, more suited for teens and young adults, who might relate to the nonsense mentioned in the film.

Overall, Kyaa Kool Hai Hum is only worthwhile if you’ve seen everything else interesting this year.
