Bollywood is a difficult world. Every actor, how much ever successful he is in his own world, has to face his share of criticism and failure. Kapil Sharma, the king of comedy is all set to try his luck with his debut acting venture, Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon. The movie directed by Abbas Mustan, also stars Varun Sharma, Elli Avram and Arbaaz Khan in supporting characters. Let us see whether Kapil’s stars help him be as much a riot as he is on TV.

Story :

Kumar Shiv Ram Kishan (Kapil) is a man suffering from the trouble of being married to three different women at the same time. Why? Because the world is a cruel place and some unfortunate reasons lead him to do so. So much so, Kumar stays with all of three wives in the same building, in different apartments. It is his lawyer friend, Karan (Varun Sharma) who helps him hide his other marriages from his wives. The trouble isn’t over for Kumar yet, as he also as a girlfriend Deepika (Elli Avram) whom he truly loves and wants to marry.

Now the whole story behind hiding and tackling the mess that Kumar is in is what Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon is all about.

Plus points :

Kis Kisko Karoon is funny. Which is the only best part about the film. The movie keeps you entertained throughout. The involvement of so many characters keeps the viewers busy, not making them focus on the story line much.

Kapil is one person, who can make you laugh even at the serious of situations with his mere expressions and delivery of dialogue. So without a doubt, Kapil stands out in his debut film when it comes to comedy. But acting? Not so much. Varun Sharma is amusing as a lawyer and throws some hilarious punches.

Negative points :

Now, however amusing the film is, it is more of a stand up stage and the characters seem to be performing in it. Except that a stand up comedy too has much logic as compared to Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon. The events and situations do not make any sense and are just illogical from start to end.

The fact that the three wives stay in the same building, become friends and still are unable to figure out that they share the same husband. Acting wise, no actress in the picture is worth my money. They all, including Elli Avram, are bad performers and need some serious training. Jamie Lever, daughter of Johnnie Lever, as a Marathi kaamwali bai (maid) is hilarious.

Technical aspects :

Abbas Mustan (The White Brothers) are known to deliver major twists in their flicks. Here too they tried to induce a lot of drama, but this time it made the film fall flat, as logic is one thing, that they failed to think of. The film more of a 90’s disaster.

The dialogues, the story line and everything is set in the 90’s are just extremely illogical and by the climax even the audience surrend to the directors’ will and start believing in whatever they tell us. The songs are equally ridiculous. Editing is fine and so is the cinematography.

Verdict :

On a whole, only because Comedy Nights With Kapil is not enough for you to watch Kapil do stand up, go watch Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon. But it is completely your decision and be warned. Rating : 2/5
