MUMBAI — Here we go again — unlimited double meanings, crass and blatantly titillating lines, expressions, situations and a skeleton of a plot binding them together. This is a second attack on our sanity in two weeks (last week’s “Kyaa Kool Hain Hum 3” featured Tusshar, Riteish Deshmukh in a cameo, two more supporting artistes and both the co-writers, one of whom also “directs” this one).

Jokes from the Stone Age of our memory, sick situations, a character named Son Das (which together means toilet!) who is among the 10 most filthy characters ever in Hindi cinema ‘comedy’ (Suresh Menon) and eroticism ad nauseam abound in this disaster of a film.

This one makes last week’s “Kyaa Kool Hain Hum 3” look not-so-intolerable, as it is the last word in how not to make a sex comedy. In fact, unless you are not impressionable, you could be put off by the word that precedes the word comedy above, so distasteful is the whole affair!

Milap Milan Zaveri and Mustaq Sheikh jettison are not just sense and sensibility but also sensuality and sensitivity completely. The sequences with the horse’s tail caught in one of the hero’s fly, the scene where Son Das plonks himself on top of the other hero in bed and so many other sequences indicate that psychotherapy was needed for the brains behind the film before it was made, and there can be a possible and urgent need for the same to a sensitive viewer after watching the film.

Made lavishly, the film’s redeeming points are a few melodic tunes (in the film, the music sounds better than in the audio) and Sunny Leone, who tries to keep the film afloat. As Lily the geek, she is quite impressive, and as Laila she is her usual self.

Of the heroes, Vir Das passes muster. But we simply could not stand Tusshar and Sushmita Mukherjee for the second week in a row in a libidinous role, poor Asrani (who reinvented clean comedy in the ‘70s after it had descended into the pits) who is saddled with a crass role, Shaad Randhawa (who comes a close second to Suresh Menon in being completely intolerable) and finally Ritesh Deshmukh.

And we do not want to bother you with the ‘story.’ It is far from ‘potent’ anyway!
