September 03, 2014 Wednesday     

When it comes to Indian films then making a Sex Comedy is still quite a difficult task due to the dual mindset prevalent in our society. Here at one end the ‘generation now’ can see just anything on their electronic gadgets at their will and on the other we are still forced to make & see films which are supposed to be Sex Comedies, without any sex in the real sense due to the strict censors ready with their scissors.

As a result, what you really get to see in KYAA SUPER KOOL HAIN HUM is a collage of suggestive scenes and double meaning dialogues where one wants to say the exact words, wishes to show some sexual content but cannot do so due to the Censor Board. In other words, the process of making films under this genre in our part of the world is just like studying the subject of PHYSICS or CHEMISTRY without having the permission to use the LABAROTARIES. Further, it all really seems to be utterly childish if you are an avid fan of Western or World Cinema and have seen some famous movies made in this particular genre.
So KSKHH can easily be called a desperate or forcible effort (made within the fixed framework of some strange restrictions and limitations), which tries its best to make you laugh occasionally. The funny moments are there in bits & parts, but that too only in its second half where the film picks up for a few minutes and then slides down again. The enjoyable scenes in the film are so hard to find that one cannot really call it a great attempt at all. The first half fails to make any kind of impact on the viewers in absence of an exciting script as compared to its unrelated "Kya Kool Hain Hum" released in 2005. Plus after making a decent start post intermission, the narration suddenly starts dragging due to its over-length, avoidable songs and a completely hushed up, pathetic climax. Hence if you are expecting a great laugh riot made on the lines of its Part One, then you are sure going to be disappointed hugely.
Honestly speaking, its really a difficult task to make the viewers enjoy a Sex-Comedy supported only by its double meaning dialogues (using the mute button at times), a few comic sequences and some fine performances, minus the Sex. As mentioned above its like making a body stand without any spine in it. The art was perfectly mastered by DADA KONDKE in the 70s-80s and till date no-one has ever achieved that kind of excellence in this genre in Indian Cinema. To say the truth, the moment anyone else tries to do the same, it all becomes completely class-less, weird and indigestible in a bizarre manner.
Putting it differently, KSKHH can also be described as just another unsuccessful attempt to create a SEX COMEDY genre in our Indian Cinema, where we still have to deal with the kind of CENSORS who think that even the vote casting ADULTS in our country are not supposed to hear the four letter word starting with F in the theater. The fact seriously makes me think about the actual age we really become Adults according to the authorities. Moreover here we have CENSORS who can readily pass a film like DELHI BELLY with hugely vulgar dialogues and contradicting themselves, can ask the other producers to mute the exactly similar words in their small films. Therefore, even though KSKHH does manage to hit you hard below the belt at times through its wacky one liners, still it cannot exactly be called a SEX COMEDY film as made in the other parts of the world.  
Coming to its performances, both Riteish and Tusshar are complete natural when it comes to these kinds of roles, still I couldn’t find anything new in their portrayal this time. They play it quite similar to what we have already seen in all their previous comedies. In the female lead, Neha Sharma looks great and acts well too but Sarah Jane Dias’s effort is clearly visible and she also needs the support of her great outfits to look good on the screen. Anupam Kher gets wasted in a half-heartedly written role and Chunky Pandey fails to generate any spark. Rohit Shetty (the famous director of Singham & Golamaal series) makes an uninspiring cameo in the film but Razzak Khan shines with his most effective lines, capable of generating a good noise in the theaters.
Director Sachin Yardi handles few sequences well, particularly in the second half, but he surely could have gone for a decent storyline to support his talented dialogue writers. At times I also felt that he gave too much attention to the Pug (dog) in the film which could have been replaced by some entertaining scenes in the script. In the technical department, Cinematography and Background score doesn’t give you anything special to write about. However the soundtrack of KSKHH scores some decent marks due to its peppy party tracks namely “Dil Garden Garden”, “Volume High Karle” & “UP Bihar” redone version.
To conclude, KYA SUPER KOOL HAIN HUM may appeal only to the viewers who wish to hear some crazy double meaning dialogues alone in this supposedly called SEX COMEDY. But if you don’t find what you were looking for in it, then simply blame the questionable standards followed by our CENSORS more than its makers.

The lines came out as a natural expression when I had an unexpected guest in my room this morning, chirping and dancing around in all the silent corners. And I just felt this the moment I jumped on to the switch board to set off the dangerously whirling fan simply waiting to be the death messenger for the little one.

The first half of year 2012 gave us some interesting off-beat films which finally tasted the box office success indicating the changing taste of our Indian viewers. But still the passion of ‘Being Inspired’ continued like a never ending process among the film-makers which namely had the following movies based on all inspired content including the few official remakes of their originals.
And here goes the list…..,
1. Players - Official remake of “The Italian Job” (1969 & 2003).
2. Sadda Adda - Highly inspired and similar settings as seen in “Pyaar Ka Punchnaama” (2011).
3. Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu – Takes it inspirations from “What Happens In Vegas” (2008) and the Mexican film “Recien Cazado” (2009).
4. Jodi Breakers – Takes its references from a French film “Heartbreaker” (2010), our own “Band Baaja Baarat” (2010) and “Life Partner” (2009).
5. Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya – It straight away lifts its first hour from Danny Boyle’s “A Life Less Ordinary” (1997), the petrol pump sequence from “Zombieland” (2009) and post intermission follows “Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge” (1995) or Jab We Met (2007) along with their Punjabi flavor, where either the boy or the girl is living with the family and starts winning their hearts.
6. ?-The Question Mark – Inspired version of the famous “The Blair Witch Project” (1999)
7. London Paris New York – Takes its inspiration from two English masterpieces “Before Sunrise” (1995) and “Before Sunset” (2004) directed by Richard Linklater.
8. Will You Marry Me – Has an exact replica publicity poster copied from the poster of American TV Series “How I Met Your Mother” (2005).
9. Chaar Din Ki Chandni – Based on second half of director Sameer Karnik’s own Hit “Yamla Pagla Deewana” (2012).
10. Kahaani – Takes it clues from Angelina Jolie’s two films namely “A Mighty Heart” (2007) made on a real life incident and “Taking Lives” (2004) having a similar climax.
11. Blood Money – Similar story progression as seen in “The Firm” released in 1993 and Vishesh films own “Jannat” (2008).
12. Bumboo - Official remake of “L'emmerdeur” or “A Pain In The Ass” (1973) written by Francis Veber. The film was also remade by Billy Wilder as “Buddy Buddy” in 1981, by Kartal Tiber in Turkish in 1982 as “Bas Belasi” and Francis himself directed its French remake with the same title in 2008.
13. Zindagi Tere Naam - All inspired from “The Notebook” (2004).
14. Housefull 2 The basic plot of the film is straight away taken from Telugu comedy “Hungama” (2005) and Tamil film “Banda Paramasivam” (2003), which are both actually based on a Malayalam film “Mattupetti Machan” (1998). The marriage broker insult sequence also reminds you of David Dhawan’s “Coolie No.1” (1995) which was again a remake of a 1991 Telugu film with the same title.Also the other sub-plot in it, showing a resort on the other side of a lonely beach is blatantly taken from the English romantic comedy "Love Wrecked" (2005).
15. Tezz - The plot was earlier there in our own Hit “The Burning Train” (1980). But “Tezz” copies some exact sequences from “Shikansen Daibakuha” or “The Bullet Train” made in Japan in 1975. Other than this there are few more films made on the similar plot like “123 Monster Express” (Thailand) (1977), “The Cassandra Crossing” (1976), “Runaway Train” (1985), “Speed” (1994) and most recently “Unstoppable” released in 2010.
16. Jannat 2 – Has the same plot as used in Vishesh films Jannat (2008) & Blood Money (2012) with only changes in the professions of the lead hero. Plus in this they take the inspiration for its crime-plot from Nicholas Cage’s “Lord of War” (2005) and design of one of its posters from “The Mechanic” (2011).
17. Fatso – Based on a plot which first came in a 1941 Hollywood Classic “Here Comes Mr. Jordan” which was later remade twice as “Heaven Can Wait” in 1978 and “Down To Earth” in 2001. In Hindi films, the same was adapted in Rajender Kumar, Saira Banu Hit “Jhuk Gaya Aasman” in 1967.
18. Mr. Bhatti On Chhutti – Takes it basic inspiration from “Mr. Bean’s Holiday” (2007).
19. Teri Meri Kahani – Based on a borrowed idea of a love story in three different eras taken from a Taiwanese film called “Three Times” or “Zui Hao De Shi Guang” (2005).

Official Remakes from other Hindi and Regional Indian Films
1. Agneepath – An official (not an exact) remake of Mukul S. Anand’s “Agneepath” (1990).
2. Ek Deewana Tha – Hindi version of director Gautham Menon’s earlier 2 hits namely “Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa” (Tamil) and “Ye Maaya Chesave” (Telugu). Plus its intial reels also remind you of Kamal Hassan-Rati Agnihotri starrer “Ek Duje Ke Liye”.
3. Rowdy Rathore - An almost exact remake of Telugu Hit “Vikramarkudu” (2006), which was also remade in many other languages.

Inspired Movies from Real Life Incidents and Life Stories
1. Paan Singh Tomar – Based on the real life of seven-time National Champion in steeplechase race Paan Singh Tomar, who later became a rebel.
2. Diary of a Butterfly – Reportedly based on the Nira Radia 2G scam.

Inspired Movies from Literature and Books
1. Shanghai - The film is based on Greek writer Vassilis Vassilikos' political novel "Z" on which director Costa-Gavras also made his project titled "Z" (French) in 1969.

(Note: Do let me know if you are aware of any other inspired movie which came in the first half of 2012 but is not listed here by chance.)

After a long time, read something exceptionally encouraging about our Indian Cinema in a recent news article talking about the conversation between one of the most innovative directors of the west, Quentin Tarantino and our own representative of new age cinema, Anurag Kashyap.

As revealed in the link given below, renowned director Quentin Tarantino saw an animated action sequence in a 2001 film which happened to be Kamal Hassan starrer Tamil-Hindi film “Aalavandhan” aka “Abhay”, directed by Suresh Krishna, wherein Kamal played a double role of twin brothers. Taking inspiration from that animated fight scene in the film, Quentin conceived a major sequence in his famous cult classic “Kill Bill” released in 2003-04 (in two parts) and also admitted this himself during his personal talks with Anurag.
Taking into account the director’s body of work which includes films such as “Pulp Fiction”, “Jackie Brown”, “Inglourious Basterds” & “Death Proof”, it’s indeed a great encouraging compliment for not only Suresh Krishna but also for all those talented Indian film-makers who are willing to introduce more such innovations in our Indian films. Moreover it also proves the fact that there is no dearth of world class creative talent in our own Industry and the only thing these artistic minds need is the solid backing of a visionary production house and nothing else.
With a hope to get more such energetic news on a regular basis….!
Cheers with HIS BLESSINGS
