Kapil Sharma has made a smashing debut with "Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon" (KKPK), but the film has failed to impress critics, suggest early reviews.
Kapil is making his Bollywood debut with "Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon" directed by Abbas Mustan. The romantic comedy film features an ensemble cast including Arbaaz Khan, Manjari Phadnis, Amrita Puri, Simran Kaur Mundi, Elli Avram, Sai Lokur, Varun Sharma, Supriya Pathak, Sharat Saxena, Manoj Joshi, Sharad Sankla (Charlie), and Johnny Lever's daughter Jamie Lever.
Kapil has built up a fan base with the help of his popular show "Comedy Nights With Kapil" and thus "Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon" was one of the most awaited films of the year. Unfortunately, the film has received mixed reviews.
While Kapil has managed to shine in his debut movie, the poor script and screenplay have pulled down the film, feels critics.
Read the critics review below:
Subramanian Harikumar of BollywoodLife.com said that the film sticks to its genre, but it is a dumb comedy.
" If you are looking for having a few laughs at the cinemas this week, and have the stomach to digest a dumb comedy, then Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon is for you! Watch it for Kapil Sharma's impressive debut," the critic said.
Bollywood Hungama in its review said: " As for as the debutante Kapil Sharma is concerned, the film looks like a cakewalk for the man who has already established himself in the genre of comedy. On the whole, KIS KISKO PYAAR KAROON can be watched if you enjoy Kapil Sharma's style of comedy."
Rohit Bhatnagar of Deccan Chronicle said: " Over all Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon is a brain dead comic caper. The film looks like a cheap Bhojpuri melodrama. If you still curious to watch the comedy king of small screen Kapil, then you could try Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon but don't complain us later!"
Deepanjana Pal of Firstpost said: "It takes a special kind of shamelessness to not just write and say these dialogues in the 21st century, but to do so in the presence of actresses who are independent, working professionals."
Divya Pal of IBNLive said: "While #KisKiskoPyaarKaroon might come across as an extension of @KapilSharmaK9's show, it guarantees good laugh. Stay away if not #CNWK fan"
