Kyaa Super Kool Hain Hum
Direction: Sachin Yardi
Actors: Riteish Deshmukh, Tusshar Kapoor
Rating: * 1/2

Hollywood has transformed the raunchy comedy into high art. Who can forget the inspired use of body fluids in There’s Something About Mary or baked goods in American Pie. Or the sweetly inept Steve Carell in The 40-Year-Old Virgin. Or the gloriously funny misadventures of four friends, a baby and a tiger in The Hangover, which was the biggest grossing R-rated comedy in its day, making more than $450 million globally.

In comparison, here’s a sampler of jokes from Kyaa Super Kool Hain Hum, which aims to occupy the same space. Early in the film, a struggling actor, played by Tusshar Kapoor, imagines himself as a superhero named Bra 1, who has come to support earth’s women (okay, I thought this was funny). There is a running gag about a dog named Suckru, who is always in heat. His owner, a struggling DJ, played by Riteish Deshmukh, actually lives off of the dog’s ability to impregnate indiscriminately. Anupam Kher plays a character named Francis Marlowe. Get it, Mar-lo? His deceased mother is named Rosemary Marlo. So Roz-meri-marlo. Dildola-re, the famous Devdas song, plays in the background, but here it sounds like Dildo-la. These are some of the best jokes.

I enjoy vulgarity, cheap lines and jokes with double meanings as much as the next person, but really, is this the best we can do? Writer-director Sachin Yardi is too lazy to create a plot, so the film is just a series of gags that allow him to bung in as many puerile sexual innuendos as possible. Kyaa Super Kool Hain Hum becomes a drag within the first twenty minutes and then continues for another two hours or so. Before you are done, you will have to suffer Chunky Pandey in a hideous wig, playing a fake godman named Baba 3G, and Tusshar Kapoor in drag wearing eyeliner, lipstick and a gown with a plunging neckline.

Yes, that’s seriously scary. Only the brave need venture in.
