Kya Super Kool Hain Hum 

Riot of Stupidity

The producer and director who believe that they have hit upon a winning formula are right—but Kya Super Kool Hain Hum can’t honestly be called a film. It’s just a compendium of stale double entendre gags, that only10-year-olds (mental or chronological age) would find funny. If it can't even reach the low bar set by American Pie, then this film has no business calling itself an adult comedy.

If done well, nobody minds risqué jokes, to have half a film hinge on the colloquial meaning of ‘bajana’ and the other half on a horny pug just showsa lack of imagination or humour; in between are really ‘thakela’ gags like afood stall selling “Snakes” where one of the half-wit heroes orders. “Isko ragda mujhe chaat.”  Funny?  Then this is just the film for you. And there’s no law against stupidity or against wasting money on bad films.

Adi (Tusshar Kapoor) is a struggling actor making go with embarrassing adsfor laxatives; his roommate Sid (Riteish Deshmukh) is a DJ—he of the ‘bajana’ and horny pug fame.  For some time the twog uys and their potential love interests Anu (Sarah Jane Dias) and Simran (Neha Sharma) kill time on general crassness, till the action shifts to Goa.

There, Anu’s mad father (Anupam Kher), under the spell of a fake godman 3G Baba (Chunky Pandey) believes that his mother has beein reincarnated as a pug.  He is also a film fan with stuff like Vidya Balan’s blouse, Vicky Donor’s.. er... samples and five progeria (Pa) patients in his collection.  To get rid of the over eager Adi,  Simran tells him she is gay, which leads to awhole lot of unfunny gay jokes.

There is something to be said about the two actors who go through all this lowbrow nonsense without the slightest trace of embarrassment.  Riteish Deshmukh gets the worst of it—sexually assaulted by a group of women, as well as a gay man, mid air at that.  Mercifully a flashing ‘A’ prevents the audience from being subjected to the dog’s antics.

As crude and vulgar humour goes, it can be done with the sly wit of Sacha Baron Cohen or like Kya Super Kool Hain Hum, which is meant for those who have never seen any better—they probably deserve it.
