One man married to three women and has a girl friend too. How he manages and makes sure that the women never meet and are kept happy with the help of a lawyer friend. Sounds like a 90’s Govinda-David Dhawan combo movie right, but it’s not. This is precisely the storyline of Kapil Sharma’s debut movie Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon.
The director duo Abbas-Mustan have so far been known for thrillers. They have been efficiently adopting the western thrillers into Bollywood masala films and have received accolades from all kind of audiences. They have tried their hands in comedy and romance too (ChinaTown and Chori Chori Chupke Chupke) but have always had more success in the thriller/suspense genre.
With KKPK they have tried an out and out comedy and because they have this supremely talented man Kapil as the protagonist and a very good screenplay that doesn’t give you a blinking time to think about the logical or viability of these imaginary situations, they succeed in it.
Kapil is already one of the most famous faces of the Indian Television and is loved by every household in India as well as Internationally. The man’s talent is un deniable but making a main stream movie with a TV star who is kind of available on TV every week, why would anyone will pay money to watch him on the big screen? This might have been a question for the makers as well. But the first day collections have already made a huge record and have proven in favour of the star.
Kapil is in fine form in the movie, this is his genre and he is awesome in all the scenes, especially the one liners with a hint of sarcasm. The one actor who compliments Kapil with aplomb is Varun Sharma who is equally good in his act as a lawyer friend who comes for rescue whenever Kapil is about to get exposed. Watch him explaining science to the women and you will definitely have a LOL moment. Arbaaz Khan is okay as the Don Brother. Rest of the cast support the movie well.
Kapil also does a emotional act in the climax and ably carries it off too.
The women though do not have much scope except looking good and dance on the songs. But the director duo has given equal attention to all the characters.
The songs are definitely not good and do appear as speed breakers in an otherwise well paced movie. The Mom Dad track is also not given a proper closure, which might be a little flaw
Overall the movie promises laughs and it delivers that in big doses. Kapil has a confident start on the big screen and we wish him luck.
It has a a very 90’s feel so me being of that generations might have enjoyed it, it will be interesting to watch the young generations take on the movie.
