Film Friday: Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon Review

My unplanned evening at the movies was a total disappointment. I made last minute plans to go see tonight’s filmy-Friday film, Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon starring Kapil Sharma as the lead star and directed by Abbas Mustan.

While I am quite a fan of the comedian and the many talents he displays on his weekly show, Comedy Nights with Kapil I was not a fan of tonight’s film. And I have numerous reasons why…

Let’s first talk about cinematography and the visual appearance of the film. While the film had a 90’s feel to it, visually it should have been high-quality as it’s not the 90’s anymore and technology has evolved quite far since then. I felt majority of the film was green-screened and if it wasn’t, the editing was really bad then. More about the visuals, well the three actresses-Manjari Fadnis, Simran Kaur Mundi, and Sai Lokur who play his every day wives, majorly needed someone to save their wardrobe! They looked like they purchases ready-made outfits from a cheap shop and threw on whatever fit. From their jewelry, their make-up and clothing it was all an utter disaster. And Kapil’s make-up wasn’t all that appealing either, well it was since I could see it on his face.

Speaking of these three actresses, their acting was too forced and well not natural in any way or form. They were given dialogues and they delivered them, that’s it. I was only appealed by Kapil’s dialogue deliver and did get a good laugh at a few of his jokes. I think I had more of a kick every time Arbaaz Khan or Varun Sharma came on-screen, they played their parts well and made me laugh.

And then there’s Elli Avram the Swedish-Greek actress who is Big Boss famous and now starring alongside Kapil Sharma did not impress me much. Yes she’s a great dancer, but her two dances in the film, or item numbers were not appealing and I wish I had the fast-forward button at those times.

The story was not too unusual, reminded me of bad version of No Entry and maybe a bit like Housefull. The film had a lot of potential, and Kapil Sharma as an actor did a really good job, and his wardrobe wasn’t as horrendous as his co-actors, but it wasn’t the best for his first film. I wish better co-actresses were chosen and a better camera and an editor. The music is definitely not something I want to ever hear again either.
