BANGALORE: "Kis Kisko Pyar Karoon"; Director: Abbas-Mustan; Cast: Kapil Sharma, Manjari Phadnis, Simran Kaur Mundi, Elli Avaram, Sai Lokur, Arbaaz Khan, Manoj Joshi, Varun Sharma, Jamie Lever, Supriya Pathak, Sharat Saxena.



Karan, one of the characters in the film often says, "Tumne science to padhi hogi; agar nahin, toh phir to tum yeh aur acche se samjhoge (you must have studied science; if not, then you would understand this even better)."



Well, I am quite sure this logic applies to the film "Kis Kisko Pyar Karoon" as well, which obviously lacks rationale and logic.



Coming from the stable of director duo, Abbas-Mustan of "Baazigar" fame, one steps in the theatre with a lot of expectations.



But a few minutes into the film, and one realises it is a mere extension of "Comedy Nights with Kapil" and the protagonist Kumar Shiv Ram Kishen aka Bholu, (Kapil Sharma) is delivering some funny lines in a two-hour long film, supposedly replete with situational comedy.



A man with a kind heart and an altruistic bent of mind, he ends up saving damsels in distress and in the bargain adds to the stress in his life.



He is forced to marry three women whose lives he has saved from difficult situations, yet, it is a fourth who he loves and wants to marry.



With his three wives labelled as head office, branch office, area office and girlfriend as inquiry office, he adroitly juggles his time with all four women and this forms the crux of the film.



However, Kapil Sharma, the hugely popular stand-up comedian, is a disappointment as an actor.



He merely delivers his lines sans any intonation or expression. His presence is like being on his TV show and not the character he essays in the film. He lacks conviction and energy, adds no nuance to his role and has a weak screen presence.
