Kya Kool Hain Hum 3

Not that “Kyaa Kool Hain Hum 3″ was expected to achieve any form of cinematic brilliance, but what director Umesh Ghadge achieves in the third instalment of one of Bollywood’s many sex film franchises is the cinematic equivalent of garbage.

Two out-of-work, aging and irrelevant actors come together, along with the usual suspects that populate such films, and proceed to make wink-wink nudge-nudge jokes for the next two hours.

Tusshar Kapoor and Aftab Shivdasani are friends whose tendency to create double entendres out of the most innocuous words and phrases is rivalled only by their ability to leer at single women on screen. This would not be a problem if the dialogue had been sparkly and witty, as it was in the first two films, if it can be called that.

But right from the known tropes of men dressed as women, to misunderstandings created because of a character’s disability (a gag started by Tusshar Kapoor in “Golmaal”), all this has been seen and done a million times over.

There is no story here to speak of, and whatever conflicts and situations the film presents are merely vehicles for its mediocre humour and raunchy song-and-dance numbers. And when you have Tusshar Kapoor dressed in drag and being propositioned by Shakti Kapoor, who plays his father, you know it can’t get worse.

And then you remember that “Mastizaade” releases next week.
