IBTimes India: 1
Remember school days when exams would mean being caged in your room with textbooks all around. And the day it got over, you would have access to TV, playground and the gaming console.
The sheer joy of having all things you love at your disposal would make you so giddy that you would end up not knowing what to choose from, eventually settling for something else altogether.
Funnyman Kapil Sharma must've had the same feeling when he set out to sign his first film ever.
"Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon" is much like an a la carte menu, only you'll be forced to eat everything.
Shiv Ram Kishan (Kapil) lives by a maxim his mother oft says – Never break a girl's heart. His obedience lands him three wives, played by Simran Kaur Mundi, Manjari Fadnis and Sai Lokar. The list could have been bigger had the director duo Abbas-Mustan not limited the film to 120 minutes.
If this isn't rattling enough, picture a bar dancer – Deepika (thank-you-Salman-Khan Elli Avram) –who catches Shiv's fancy. Throw in a few more unnecessary characters who are clearly there to muddle things up.
The narrative is a distasteful mish-mash of scripts picked from here and there, and not once does the film pretend that we are now little over a decade into the 21st century.
Kapil must understand mouthing funny one-liners on home stage ("Comedy Nights With Kapil") is one thing, but expressing emotions on the 75mm screen is a different ball game altogether.
However, he needn't be upset for being shot down from every quarter, considering Jackky Bhagnani is still being signed.
Although there are a few sparks in the comic caper, it's mostly a noisy pastiche of the 1990s cinema.
In a nutshell, if you are still asking "Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon?", I'd say, love yourself and skip this one.
