MUMBAI — The first film in this series, “Kyaa Kool Hai Hum,” which (unfortunately) created this franchise, was worth a watch for its novelty and naughtiness. The second in the franchise, “Kyaa SuperKool Hain Hum” was supremely senseless and boring.

We thought the franchise would end, especially since the second part did not do too well and Balaji had meanwhile explored new and serious angles of sexuality in cinema that reaped good dividends (“Love Sex and Dhokha,” “The Dirty Picture”) for them.

But no, they wanted to keep coming (no pun intended, please!) and so we are assaulted in every sense by this third and torturous sequel.

To be honest, the only angle in which it scores over part two is in its music, which is finally inconsequential for the genre. This is an involved tale of Kanhaiya (Tusshar) and his best friend Rocky (Aftab Shivdasani) who are invited by their friend Mickey (Krushna Abhishek) for a surprise to Thailand. It turns out that the idea is to make them adult stars along with Mickey’s existing fleet of Sakku (Gizele Thakral), Mary Lee (Claudia Ciesla), Sushil (Andy Kumar) and his brother (Danny Sura). Mickey makes adult spoofs of hit films like “Kick” (“Lick”), “Singham” (“Lingam”) and has a huge mansion in which he shoots these films.

At that juncture, Kanhaiya falls for Indian girl Shalu (Mandana Karimi), and, when she calls her family, headed by Surya Karjatya (Darshan Zariwala), to meet the boy, he has to arrange a “family,” because he had told her that he is rolling in money. There is no choice but to get the porn stars to play them. Thereby hangs another convoluted tale of how he has angered his own father (Shakti Kapoor), but, suffice it to say, this starts a whole lot of unfunny mess-ups before the final happy ending.

In the climax, the film making and writing team are thoroughly confused — one character speaks on behalf of adult stars and says that they serve their purpose and are to be admired, while the entire porn gang now decides to only make family films in future. Ahhh....really?

Double-meaning lines galore and buffoonery as well as a disjointed script are combined to give you a headache — this film would be a snooze-inducer had it not been for its loudness throughout in all aspects. Shivdasani, Meghna Naidu as Kanhaiya’s libidinous stepmother who has changed his inners as a child and now lusts after his friend Rocky (in disguise posing as Kanhaiya’s father), and Darshan Zariwala share the acting honors, though we also liked Ciesla and Thakral.

If you want sense and sensuality, skip this film. If you have been a fan of the first film, make particularly sure you skip it! And above all, avoid it if you want to get your money’s worth even in adult fare.
