Kool Hain Hum Movie
Fasten your seat belts and get set for a joyride
called KYAA KOOL HAI HUM. A rib-tickling comedy
on the lines of MASTI and AMERICAN PIE, this
Sangeeth Sivan-directed film follows the same
path that David Dhawan pioneered in Bollywood.
Leave your thinking caps behind as you gear up
to watch KYAA KOOL HAI HUM. If you're looking
for logic or sensible cinema, KYAA KOOL HAI HUM
is not for you. But if you prefer the
laughathons -- films that stress on masti
and dhamaal in those 2.30 hours -- KYAA
KOOL HAI HUM is just for you.
Targeted at the youth and laced with naughty
jokes and hilarious situations, KYAA KOOL HAI
HUM is akin to a 'kool' shower in this scorching
heat. It refreshes you for sure!
Meet Rahul [Tusshar] and Karan [Ritesh Deshmukh].
Not exactly diaper buddies, but definitely thick
friends. Rahul is sincere, simple and
hardworking, while Karan is just the opposite.
While Rahul aspires to become a famous fashion
designer some day, Karan dreams of marrying a
girl with a pretty face and a prettier bank
Meanwhile, the city is rocked with a series of
rape and killings and the police are in search
of this dreaded serial killer. Things take a
funny turn when Rahul becomes the prime suspect
and this sets the police on the trail. They
hatch a plan with the help of a famous
criminologist, Dr. Screwala [Anupam Kher], to
nab him in action.
The job of nabbing Rahul in action is entrusted
to a violent lady inspector called Urmila
Martodkar [Isha Koppikar]. Urmila enters Rahul's
life on some pretext and tries to seduce him
into showing his true face of a rapist and a
Meanwhile, Karan, the wannabe casanova, has
managed to woo his boss' ex-girlfriend called
Kiran [Bobby Darling]. Kiran's parents strike a
plan to brainwash him and for that they seek
help from Kiran's cousin Rekha [Neha Dhupia], a
The film reaches its crescendo when the police
are on the verge of arresting Rahul as the
rapist and Karan is about to wed Kiran at the
temple. What happens next?
KYAA KOOL HAI HUM abounds in illogical
situations and the writers [Sachin Yardi, Pankaj
Trivedi] make no bones about it. The gags,
punches and situations -- most of them are of
the nonsensical variety -- keep you in splits
and thoroughly entertained through the entire
Besides, the film moves at a lightening speed,
giving the viewer no time to blink an eyelid.
Not just Tusshar and Ritesh, but even Isha
Koppikar, Anupam Kher and Razzaq Khan's
characters keep you glued to the goings-on. It's
these characters and their interaction with the
two boys that makes the mood upbeat.
But the sparks are missing in the post-interval
portions. Yes, the second half moves on the same
track, but since the film rests on a thin plot,
the story stagnates at this juncture. In fact,
you constantly feel that things are being
stretched without much reason. For instance, the
'Chaska' track -- although well filmed -- looks
completely forced in the narrative. Ditto for a
few sequences in this half.
Even the jokes in the second half aren't as
funny. The climax too leaves a lot to be
desired. The killer's identity and the reason
that prompted him to commit mass murders aren't
too convincing or funny in this case.
Sangeeth Sivan tackles a different genre this
time around and he does it extremely well. It's
difficult to make people laugh, but Sivan
succeeds in tickling your funny bone at most
places. The cat sequence, as well as the
cigarette portion and the one with mannequins
are sure to bring the house down. Also, he has
extracted wonderful performances from one and
all, which is a tall achievement considering the
fact that none of the actors are supposed to be
veterans at comedy.
One of the strong pillars of KYAA KOOL HAI HUM
are its dialogues, which are exceptional [also
penned by Sachin Yardi, Pankaj Trivedi]. The
witty one-liners are sure to catch your
attention from the word go. Without doubt, the
dialogues are the USP of the enterprise.
Music [Anu Malik] is in sync with the essence of
the film. But barring the title track, the
remaining numbers don't stay with you after the
show is over. Even the Jay Sean track doesn't
make you jump with excitement. Cinematography [Ramji]
is up to the mark.
It's indeed difficult to make choices when it
comes to the on-screen performances. But there's
no denying that both Ritesh and Tusshar vie for
top honors. After MASTI, KYAA KOOL HAI HUM is
another film that showcases Ritesh's talent to
the optimum. The actor sheds his inhibitions and
delivers an incredible, knockout performance.
Tusshar is lovable and the sincerity in his
performance shows all through. Cast in a role
that suits his persona, Tusshar handles his part
with remarkable ease and emerges trumps. The
innocent look, coupled with his performance,
makes him a winner.
Isha Koppikar is a revelation. The industry and
moviegoers are sure to wake up to this reservoir
of talent after this film. The role of an
uncouth cop would've fallen flat had it been
entrusted to someone inferior, but Isha handles
it like an efficient professional.
Neha Dhupia doesn't really get much scope or the
best lines, but she fits the glamorous part
extremely well. Anupam Kher is in form after a
long time. He is outstanding! Razzaq Khan is
another actor who is superb. His pronunciations
are sure to make the audience go wild.
Shoma Anand is competent. Rajpal Yadav [sp.
app.] doesn't register an impact this time.
Sushmita Mukherjee does very well in a brief
role. Avtar Gill, Vijay Patkar [cop], Raj Zutshi
and Bobby Darling lend able support.
On the whole, KYAA KOOL HAI HUM is a refreshing,
fun-filled entertainer targeted at the youth
mainly. At the box-office, the film should sail
safe on the basis of the youth brigade. Its
business at multiplexes during the weekends
mainly will be heartening. Has the potential to
grow with a good word of mouth!
