Kuch Kuch Locha Hai : Movie Review

Cast: Sunny Leone, Ram Kapoor, Evelyn Sharma. Navdeep Chhabra

Director: Devang Dholakia

When Sajid Khan came out with his disastrous movie, 'Humshakals' last year, he did one thing correct, and that was showcasing the three reel faces of silver screen's favorite actor, Ram Kapoor. One, which we see on the silver screen every day, the other that we see in films like 'Udaan', and the last one, is what we witness in movies like these.

A year later, Ram Kapoor is back in 'Kuch Kuch Locha Hai', along with Sunny Leone, Evelyn Sharma, and debutant, Navdeep Chhabra. Directed by Devang Dholakia, whose last outing in 2009 has been surely forgotten by everyone, including him, this movie is a hot comedy. From the look of the trailers itself, one could detect poor cinematography and dialogues, but, like all Sunny Leone movies, one was hopeful that there would be something else to pull the audience to the movie theatres. Sadly, this time also, one is disappointed.

Making a movie with Sunny Leone has emerged as a trend in the past couple of years. While Ekta Kapoor cashed on the talent of this actress with numerous hits and item numbers, others have struggled in identifying her as an acting entity in films. A feminist could argue or even write a thesis on why Sunny Leone movies based on hot and vulgarity needs to stop, but their money-making potential makes them a promising venture for all movie makers.

The movie is about a Gujarati businessman, Praveen Patel, played by Ram Kapoor. Playing a 45 year old tycoon with a son old enough to fall for the neighbor's daughter, we see Praveen wooed by the Bollywood diva, Shanaya, played by Sunny Leone. Things get complicated, or cringing, when the latter tries to gain entry into the tycoon's house. The comedy revolves around the family of Ram Kapoor, which includes his son, played by Navdeep Chhabra, his potential daughter-in-law, played by Evelyn Sharma, and a bunch of other characters we are forced to endure.

While many critics might cite the theme of the movie to be the reason of its doom, there is no denying that the urban population of the country enjoys hot comedies. This one however falls short miserably of even being a comedy. To start with, the dialogues lack the punch required for a good comedy. Probably, the director imagined the glamorous persona of Sunny Leone to make up for the lack of script and story. A few minutes into the story, and we are already confused, mugged up in between the desires of a perverted 45 year old man, Bollywood diva, and countless other characters. What does start as a laugh riot ends up being just another drag?

The direction of this movie is poor. One can imagine the producer running behind the director with Thor's hammer. Sunny Leone as Shanaya does what she is best known for. However, it can no longer be ignored that the objectification could soon take a toll on diva's career. Ram Kapoor, as Praveen Patel, is wasted.

It seems Ram Kapoor was in still recovering from the hangover of 'Humshakals' while shooting this one. The supporting cast does a decent job, but the script doesn't have much to offer them. Evelyn Sharma is pleasing, but not promising. Navdeep Chhabra as an aspiring rock star appears to be lost in places.

Had some thought been given to the script, the movie would have played out well. There are some scenes that make you smile, but none are efficient enough to earn your attention or praise. The music of the movie is bearable, and the lone survivor of this otherwise sunken ship. Watch this movie if you are a die-hard Sunny Leone film, or are looking to bunk the summer sun with a trip to the air-conditioned movie hall. Don't enter with any expectations and you won't return with any disappointments. I would like to give this movie a single star out of 5. Yes, we need hot comedies, and yes, we need movies like these to stop!
