Kuch Kuch Locha Hai, as the title suggests, is a sex comedy where the comedy is held back to a large extent. When it’s a Sunny Leone film, we all pretty much know what to expect. And when you add the veteran TV actor, Ram Kapoor to the mix, funny things are bound to happen. While sexual innuendos are a dime a dozen, the movie is also filled with every stereotype you’ve ever seen in a Hindi movie. Loud Gujaratis, check. Fake foreign accents, check. Effeminate gays, double check. While Devang Dholakia tries really hard to amuse you, there is hardly anything to laugh at.
The story delves into the life of a rich Gujarati businessman (Ram Kapoor) settled in Malaysia. He is fed up of his loud sanskari wife and good-for-nothing son. The only thing that excites him is Bollywood superstar, Shanaya (every hot girl’s name ever!) played by Sunny Leone. When he finds an opportunity to go out on a date with her, he leaves no stone unturned! On the other hand, Shanaya is conveniently adviced by her film’s director to stay with a Gujarati family to prepare for her new role. Thus, she agrees to go out with Ram. What follows later is a rollercoaster of distasteful crass humor. While the plot of the film is textbook Bollywood, it lacks pace and is highly dragged to the point of boredom.
After being subjected to Ram Kapoor and his sidekicks’ hammy performances and Navdeep Chhabra’s expressionless face, there is very little anyone can expect out of this film. But the only silver lining in the otherwise dark cloud which is Kuch Kuch Locha Hai was Sunny Leone’s performance. It’s a shame that Indian directors are only casting her in over the top sex comedies, while her acting skills can be clearly used for more meaningful roles. Evelyn Sharma also makes her presence felt with her performance. However, she is yet to break out of the rut of playing the naïve hot girl who is always clueless about everything.
Why you should watch this film?
If Sunny Leone wasn’t enough as a consolation prize, the audience gets to see Evelyn Sharma in a bikini too. So, if you’re looking for a sizzling comedy for the weekend, make sure you catch Kuch Kuch Locha Hai.
