An owner who lives off his pug’s voracious libido. A millionaire who falls for the tricks of a scheming baba and believes that said pug is his dead mother. He also adopts five midgets who are modelled on Amitabh Bachchan’s character in Paa. A girl who claims to be a lesbian in order to avoid a guy.
These are a few of the supposedly whimsical characters in the banal Kyaa Super Kool Hain Hum. The film takes off from where Kyaa Kool Hain Hum left off. Tusshar Kapoor and Riteish Deshmukh reprise their roles as best friends with nothing in common. They may be given new names but their fate is the same: juvenile men who are often misunderstood and suffer for their innocence and ignorance. Both are strugglers in their careers as an actor and DJ respectively. Nice-guy Adi (Tusshar Kapoor) has been told that a woman whose name has the initial ‘S’ will turn his fortunes around. Enter Simran (Neha Simran), cue to the lesbian in the paragraph above.
Womanising Sid (Riteish Deshmukh) hopes to land a great gig but only runs into trouble. Enter Anu (Sarah Jane-Dias), a bartender and also daughter of the above-mentioned millionaire. As in the first part, the film derives pleasure in laughing at its heroes in awkward situations. This time, the humiliation is largely sexual in nature. There’s plenty of crude jokes and slapstick humour, but Kyaa Super Kool Hain Hum lacks the necessary mania and character growth seen in the prequel. Deshmukh has a few good lines, while Anupam Kher and Chunkey Pandey ham it up. Yardi must have revised his script right till the end for there are jibes at Diana Penty and Mumbai inspector Dhoble. Ultimately, the film seems desperate to amuse. Not kool.
