(‘Witty’ one-liner alert. Scroll down to the last line before the final rating. That sums up the entire review.)

What you expect is not what you’ll get and what you don’t expect you’ll not get it either. That is the lesson Kya Super Kool Hain Hum taught me. A film that brands itself as an adult comedy, you’re bound to get a few below the belt jokes and a few abuses thrown out in between.

But hey, what you get is one-liners stolen from the ‘popular tweets’ section of newspapers, tons of indirect references to the protagonists’ sexuality in some morse code that is obviously bereft of the word ‘gay’ or ‘homosexual’. I’m sure homosexuality is some devious monster that is more sentimentally hurting than a ‘chutiya’ or  a ‘machodunga’ or horrific camera angles.

The plot is as forced as me trying to type out the plot. The palmist from the first part (Kya Kool Hain Hum) is replaced with a tarot card reader who tells Adi (Tusshar Kapoor) that a girl whose name starts with the letter ‘S’ will bring him luck and rejuvenate his ailing acting career. Deja vu! DJ Sid (Ritesh Deshmukh) is his room-mate. Sid makes more money by breeding his ever-sexually-potent dog than by DJ-ing at events. Wow!

Sid gets a gig spontaneously and it’s a fashion show where Anu (Sarah Jane) trips on the ramp and faces a wardrobe malfunction. Anu holds Sid accountable for this and starts looking for revenge. Don’t even think of understanding the logic behind a DJ being responsible for a nip-slip. You won’t even get one! Meanwhile, Adi finds his lucky girl Simran (Neha Sharma) who is a rich girl who wants to get all independent by not marrying her parents’ chosen boy. The two girls are obviously friends.

Now that we have a plot, we’re witness to random skits taken straight out of comedy shows and more not-so-funny one liners. Even Razzak Khan makes a appearance with the same schtick from the last film. I’m not just complaining about the silly storyline or random gags, the cameras and flipshots are painfully ugly and the overall setup of the film is too improbable to be true.

And this one is my own ‘one-liner’ to the film’s director Sachin Yardi in the same rhyme scheme way that he’s used profusely in the film. Here it goes,
Yaar Sachin Yardi, tune to picture ki gaand maar di.”

My rating: *1/2 (1.5 out of 5)
