Kyaa Super Kool Hain Hum makes for a time pass watch purely for its rip-roaring first half. Had it been for a better second half the film would've worked more.

The astute business woman Ekta Kapoor clearly seems to be reaping maximum benefits from the forbidden fruit. The lady is publicly taking up all hushed, explicit or so called "adult" topics and giving it either a dramatic or a comic spin. Result? Her films have been selling like hot cakes. And once again keeping up with her style, the producer is back with a 'Politically incorrect' film as they are terming it, Kya Super Kool Hai Hum. Whether this too just like its predecessor rakes in the moolah or not remains to be seen.
Adi (Tusshar Kapoor) is a struggling actor and his roommate Sid (Riteish Deshmukh) a struggling DJ. While Adi resigns to doing despicable and tacky home shopping television ads such as that of fairness cream, constipating, fat loss etc. Sid gets reduced to DJing at Gujarati parties and also making money by using his pet pug Sakru for mating.
Dejected by their lives, Adi approaches an astrologer who predicts that a female will enter his life and be his lucky charm. Enters Simran (Neha Sharma). Adi proposes Simran in their first meet itself almost scaring her off. Simran soon takes to Goa. On the other hand Sid comes across Anu (Sarah Jane Dias) and after a disastrous first meet, falls for her. Adi chases Simran all the way to Goa along with Sid where the latter realizes even Anu is in Goa itself. Whether the two failures in life end up winning those two girls or not follows through a series double meaning dialogues and mad-cap situations.
Seven years ago, Kya Kool Hai Hum had ushered the concept of adult comedy. While critically the film was severely panned, the audience had lapped it up making it a roaring success. And the writer of the film Sachin Yardi made his comeback, this time as a director, promising to make his sequel all the more humorous. So does the filmmaker succeed? Partially yes, for the entire first half guarantees a mega laughathon. Replete with double entendre and slick editing with the story moving fast, the first half makes for an entertaining watch. It's commendable for a writer to create innuendos out of literally nothing!
However, the problem arises when too many sub-plots like that of Marlo (Anupam Kher) and 3G baba (Chunky Pandey) and the romantic track start interrupting the laugh riot in the second so much so that it leaves you disappointed by the end. A big issue with the film is its length. At 2hours 20mins, KSKHH ends up being too long-drawn and stretched. By this time, even the quality of humour goes down ranging from plain PJs to SMS jokes.
What works best for KSKHH is the stupendous comic timing between Riteish and Tusshar. The two along are responsible for maximum laughter in the film. While the other actors like Anupam Kher, Chunky Pandey, Kavin Dave etc. fail to even leave a smile on your face. Neha Sharma as well as Sarah Jane Dias succeed only in adding the glamour quotient to the film and have nothing more than that to offer.
To sum it up, Kyaa Super Kool Hain Hum makes for a time pass one time watch. However, if for a better second half, the film would've worked more!
