Makers of Kya Super Kool Hai Hum are in a fix. Though the film is a sequel to sex comedy Kya Kool Hai Hum which was a big success when released way back in 2005, the makers are still trying to figure out how far they want to go when it comes to raising the bar. While they have tried to keep it all under check instead of being overzealous in their approach, many around them have advised to go all the way given the fact that audience is much more receptive to naughty content in films today.
“It is yet undecided that how would the sex comedy quotient stand in the film”, informs a source, “Kya Kool Hai Hum is known for it’s adult content and it was mainly due to the freshness it brought in it’s naughty treatment that made it such a big hit back then. Sachin Yardi has written the first in the series and now writing as well as directing the sequel. There are ton loads of angles that he can explore in this Tusshar Kapoor and Riteish Deshmukh starrer. However, he has tried to play a little safe by curbing his instincts and now make it an out and out sex comedy affair that many are expecting it to be.”
This stems from the fact that even though the film was a huge hit back then, there were a few who criticised the content for being unsuitable for the family audience. Though youth patronised the film in a big way, the stakes are higher for the sequel as the makers want to broaden the target audience. However quite a few around them are More >

A week or two ago, while surfing the TV channels, I chanced upon this immensely enjoyable Govinda starrer that was being telecast for the umpteenth time. Despite the fact that I had watched it time and again, I decided to watch it yet again, complimenting and applauding Govinda’s natural act and comic timing in the movie. That Govinda is a fabulous actor cannot be denied. Of course, the reasons for his not being in the limelight could be several, but even his detractors will agree that when it comes to certain roles, he’s pure dynamite.BY BOLLYWOOD HUNGAMA.COM
NAUGHTY @ 40, Govinda’s new release, aims at bringing the actor back in the reckoning, a position that he once enjoyed not too long ago. NAUGHTY @ 40 is vintage Govinda fare replete with his by-now-famous characteristics, body language, dialogue delivery and even pelvic thrusts that the masses have gleefully mastered over the years. The only difference is, the actor plays a 40-year-old virgin in this sex comedy.
Clearly inspired by THE 40-YEAR-OLD VIRGIN, NAUGHTY @ 40 has been adapted to suit the Indian sensibilities. But director Jagmohan Mundhra ensures that it’s not an out-and-out ‘naughty’ experience. The first hour has moments that keep you rolling in your seat as the humor gets raunchier and unsophisticated, laughing at Govinda when his attempts to deal with his problems go awry. From crude hilarity to syrupy sentimentality, the post-interval More >

Call it coincidence but seems like the ‘S’ word is making it’s presence felt in a much bigger way than what one may have presumed. Coming Friday there are as many six films (phew!) which are releasing. Now call it coincidence but out of these at least four have clear references to the sex element. The films in question are Naughty @ 40, Men Will Be Men, Queens! Destiny of Dance. No wonder, it seems like a record in the making. “It is unbelievable”, says a trade veteran, “It used to be such a phenomenon in the 80s when a flurry of adult movies would arrive in one go. However they were restricted to the morning shows. Now with multiplexes coming in, films have been re-packaged to make it all look like a classy affair.” “Yes, Naughty @ 40 is a sex comedy. Why deny that when it is actually a fact”, says Jagmohan Mundhra, the film’s director, who has cast Govinda in the role of a 40 year old virgin who still dreads the ‘S’ word.
I AM too has references to the sex element though it is more disturbing than titillating. Out of the four stories in the film, there is a story each around child abuse as well as gay partners. Also, no attempt has been made to undersell these elements and instead the makers have come out and told the stories for what they are, hence taking the risk of some uncomfortable moments when the visuals arrive on More >

They first knocked off the ‘s’ word and even the ‘v’ word (virginity) from the promos. Now they’ve restricted his film’s audience by giving it an Adults Only certificate.
Madhur Bhandarkar is livid with the censors. Though he quietly accepted the ‘Adults Only’ certificate from the censor board for his new film Dil Toh Bachcha Hai Ji (DTBHJ), the director now feels that the film got labeled an Adults film because his reputation precedes his cinema.
DTBHJ opened to a relatively smaller crowd because kids and families stayed away.
Says a source close to the harried filmmaker, “The film lost twenty percent of its audience because of the Adult rating. The minute the audience hears a film is for Adults Only and that it’s a sex comedy, the families stay away. I don’t mean to question the censors’ decision. But I wonder how DTBHJ qualifies as adult entertainment?! It’s a harmless and entertaining look at courtship and romance in the metropolis. What is shocking about three guys looking for female company?”
Interestingly Bhandarkar’s film has no lewd references or double meanings, no shots of cleavages and thighs. “There were scores of situations in the script where I could’ve put in some off-colour masti. But I kept it all within limits. I’ve my own code of censorship which my conscience won’t allow me to break,” observes the source.
Even more exasperating is the fact the film’s promotional trailers on television have More >
Aamir Khan asked the filmmaker to choreograph a song in his film, which will be picturised on Imran Khan
Subhash K Jha (MUMBAI MIRROR; January 06, 2011)
Now that Tees Maar Khan has had its theatrical release, Farah Khan is indulging in her first love, choreography. Aamir Khan has asked her to choreograph a song for Delhi Belly.
Expect the unexpected from Aamir and Delhi Belly being given a touch of Farah Khan’s choreography, will surprise many.
But for Aamir, it’s a special project, as it stars his nephew Imran Khan.
The quirky film about a prodigal’s return to the Capital has been described as a sex comedy.
The song choreographed by Farah Khan in Delhi Belly would be filmed on Imran. Apparently, Aamir wants the same youthful vibrancy in it that Farah had created for him in the Pehla nasha song in Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar.Farah Khan
Confirming her reunion with Aamir after ten years Farah says, “Next month I’m doing a song for Aamir’s Delhi Belly because he has asked me to.
I am meeting him this week to decide everything.”

The promotions of MIRCH had suddenly caught one’s eye thanks to its attention-grabbing promos, which are full of love-making scenes. You are forewarned at the outset that this film talks of four adulterous people. But the question is, haven’t we watched men cheating women in soooo many movies in the past? Haven’t women caught their men with their pants down, in the past? So what’s new in MIRCH? For a change, the women in MIRCH are into adultery. They are the ones who are cheating on their husbands and in each of those stories the woman manages to go scot-free when caught red-handed with her lover.
Was asked a pertinent question while watching this film: Is the audience mature enough to handle the portrayal of female sexuality on screen? Well, first and foremost, moviegoers are mature enough to understand and laud good themes and subjects and MIRCH, which director Vinay Shukla refers to as “a celebration of womanhood”, narrates four separate stories based on issues of women emancipation and also dabbles with gender equality in a relationship. It’s a sex comedy with generous doses of wit; not a serious take on feminism. Again, it is erotic in parts, but not vulgar. We’ve seen lots of films dealing with male sexuality, but MIRCH deals with women’s libido and that too in a funny way.BY BOLLYWOOD HUNGAMA.COM
Vinay Shukla is capable of combining the subtlety of good cinema within the accepted communicative More >
